Originally aired Weds, April 9, 2014, Hour 2: GUEST: Dick Gregory, comedian and "Civil Rights" leader invited to talk about the state of black men today. At this point he was 82-years-old and healthy with no prescriptions between him and his wife (he has 10 kids!). Jesse says that the Civil Rights Movement is over; it's not needed anymore, but blacks are acting like they still need something from whites instead of going out and being independent, free-thinking people.
They talk about how Dr. Ben Carson insulted President Barack Obama with the truth at a recent National Prayer Breakfast. Dick says Carson didn't understand "white supremacy." Jesse insists Carson is right that Obamacare is worse than slavery — how is it not worse than slavery? Dick says that after they stopped shipping blacks in as slaves, they forced 14-year-old black boys to impregnate their mothers. Jesse points out that they gave Obama the Nobel Peace Prize just because he was black (he didn't deserve it), and that Barack Obama & Eric Holder should be in jail for all their scandals.
Jesse asks if he agreed with Bill Cosby that it's about the family, about values, and not race. Dick mentions the Nation of Islam and black pastors, saying they talk to blacks, but Cosby said it in the wrong place. Jesse asks him if he harbors anger for the past injustice, slavery, etc.
Jesse mentions, "I'm black and slow." Black children are being born out of wedlock at a rate of over 70-percent, and it's having a negative impact. Dick thinks that's an insult to the single mothers. Dick asks how many white people are doing that. It doesn't matter, we're talking about blacks! He jumps back to Ben Carson, and then claims blacks didn't have family structure during slavery.
Dick has no problem with black men dating and marrying white women. He has no problem, but never did it. Jesse observes that most black women are angry and passing it down to their children.
