    I agreed on March 20, 2014 @ 8:22 PM

    But been posted before and I doubt it will be of much discussion.
    "Some" people are more interested in things like this while the majority of "others" don't know much about re-searching.

    If it is on the N.E.W.S., then it must be what they say it is.

    Didn't want to make it as obvious as I retracted some of my words, as I realized even though "reactionary directives" are what drives many of us, it still doesn't feel good to poke at people knowing how weak the mind is in general.

    Just glad he didn't bring up John Hanson.

    Respect

    IMO, Dick Gregory is just another overrated pseudo intellectual/conspiracy theorist, who hasn't really said a whole lot that I agree with! ;)

    I agree with you there. I respect and agree with his general criticism of the white power structure (which conscious black person wouldn't?) but some of the specific cases he refers to in this and other videos I've seen of his, he alludes to conspiracies with slim to zero proof.

    In this video his allegation regarding Trayvon Martin, skittles and ice tea was pathetic.

    He said some Australian under cover secret agents filmed the Rodney King beating. Although its many years ago, I recall the person who filmed the beating being interviewed having an American accent. Two minutes on Google I was able to establish it was a Canadian (I find it difficult to distinguish between Canadian and U.S. accents). Where is Dick Gregory's proof of it being Australians, secret agents or not? He doesn't give any.

    In another video he states when Stephen King was in a car accident, "they" were trying to kill him because the movie Green Mile (based on one of his short stories) portrayed Jesus as a black man.....without proof these theories are so silly!
