Dick Gregory: Comedian, Activist and Author

Discusses Imus and Racial Profiling

ChanX CliffsNotes

Imus brought up the Pacman discussion.  Gregory quickly interrupted saying; Wait, wait, wait, don’t do this. Let me say it first.. From there Gregory took control of the discussion.

Gregory had no idea who Pacman Jones is, claiming he does not read the sports pages. Instinctively he knew Imus’ “What race is he” was not a blind question.   Gregory pointed to use of facetiousness in comedy which helps you get to the next point.  His opinion?  All Imus was talking about is racial profiling.

Gregory also counseled, there are people out there who hold Imus responsible for past deeds.  Point?  There is  a group who are not going to believe a white man is going to talk about racial profiling.

Dick Gregory’s conclusion- “There’s some serious stuff out here and I’m satisfied.. I would be the first one to call it out if I thought it wrong, cause I don’t have to play nobody.

COLMES: Well, that’s what satire is. But you call it racist

DEGGANS: There’s examples going back 15 years, 20 years, where he’s called Gwen Ifill, who was then with The New York Times, a cleaning lady.
