One World



"I never believed in Santa Claus 
because I knew no white dude would 
come into my neighborhood after dark." 

—Dick Gregory


Even though I'm tempted to contextualize the heck out of it, in this week of charged news stories about hate crimes in Sanford, Florida and Toulouse, France, I'll just let Dick Gregory's quote stand without commentary. Not gonna lie, though. It did make me laugh.

  1. Once again I am just SO effing proud to be from Florida.
    (You do know I'm being sarcastic, right? My heart is hurting for the family of that young man. I feel so disheartened and ashamed for the human race.)

  4. Sometimes simple words -- and definitely laughter -- speak the loudest. My heart aches for what goes on and on and on and on --

    1. Elizabeth, i think if we all did more laughing together, we would have less of the tragic stuff.

  6. I remember that quote from back in the day. My uncle Louis may have had one of his records full of such jokes.
