I’m truly sorry. Did that title catch your attention? Sure it did. Areeeeeeeeeeeet-tah, here’s what I got for ya’s.
Have you heard of Dick Gregory yet?
It’s like our mom’s always say, Sticks and Stones, kids! Sticks and Stones! But words… but words… man they fucking KILL people, amirite!?
The title is a mechanism/trap/contraption to test my theory that I’ll get in some sort of hot water for writing the word “niggers” in the title when really I’m respectfully paying tribute to Dick Gregory and raising awareness on what his message holds and means. And that’s not to say he’s the best, I just don’t think enough of you have heard of him yet. It’s not enough till all of you know, as far as I’m concerned. And there are more tributes to come, and I promise to stop using the word nigger* from here on out. If none of this made sense to you, here’s Llaila Afrika.
Here’s a sample of Dick Gregory in his later years speaking at the Chicago Humanities Festival (c.~2010):
Ohhhhhh… it was NAGGERS*. Nevermind… woohphhh, that’s my bad!!!!!!!
