Ten Humorous and Powerful Quotes by Dick Gregory

  1. I never learned hate at home, or shame. I had to go to school for that.
  2. (About Ebola): The Africans are angry. They know this is a trick. The pitch got so high; they had to have some whyte folks get it to convince them. This was the trick. The question is, “How come they get it, they come back to America and they’re cured in two weeks, but y’all tell US there’s no cure?”
  3. I am really enjoying the new Martin Luther King Jr stamp – just think about all those whyte bigots, licking the backside of a Black man.
  4. I never believed in Santa Claus because I knew no whyte dude would come into my neighborhood after dark.
  5. Nature is not affected by finance. If someone offered you ten thousand dollars to let them touch your eyeball without blinking, you would never collect the money. At the very last moment, Nature would force you to blink your eye. Nature will protect her own.
  6. Last time I was down South I walked into this restaurant, and this whyte waitress came up to me and said: ‘We don’t serve colored people here.’ I said: ‘That’s all right, I don’t eat colored people. Bring me a whole fried chicken.’
  7. Love is man’s natural endowment, but he doesn’t know how to use it. He refuses to recognize the power of love because of his love of power.
  8. I waited at the counter of a whyte restaurant for eleven years. When they finally integrated, they didn’t have what I wanted.
  9. If they took all the drugs, nicotine, alcohol and caffeine off the market for six days, they’d have to bring out the tanks to control you.
  10. Civil Rights: What Black folks are given in the U.S. on the installment plan, as in civil-rights bills. Not to be confused with human rights, which are the dignity, stature, humanity, respect, and freedom belonging to all people by right of their birth.
