Comedian and activist Dick Gregory is performing at the Arlington Improv December 26th and 27th. He’ll also be with Martin Luther King III in Nashville on January 18th for an event, “Realizing The Dream.”
He talks to the Tom Joyner Morning Show about his views on politics and the first thing he would’ve done if he would’ve won the White House.
On the GOP nominations:
“You’ve got a white boy that done killed four people, and because he was so rich he didn’t know right from wrong. Well I’ve got some cousins…and that ain’t got a quarter.”
On Ben Carson:
“If he is so important…how come he’s never been nominated for a Nobel Prize in medicine. Not get one, but nominated.”
On being the first black man to run for President in 1968:
“Had I run then I would’ve asked for a recount.”
