Jeesh, being "kinda ole" is a bad thing? Slice you gonna get there soon when your former graceful body does not move like it once did.

I remember Dick Gregory from the 60s. I am thinking hard on why people praising and remembering Jerry Lewis much more than Dick Gregory. Yep, you think so and that's it - unspoken but there.

Three to four posts on my way to ten.

I remember reading his autobiography called "[racist word]" in college. I said to myself how lucky to be born black and Caribbean without having to deal with hearing that word. I had a chance to be and accept blackness without the drama or degradation. Afro-Americans have been through a lot with the white man. It is his quest for superiority that has made the world such a damned ugly place to be in.
