This is the man who inspired Richard Pryor and every other stand-up out there.

Thank you for your insight and wisdom.

Your job is done may you rest peacefully.

I just mentioned him last Wednesday to my Union reps
The subject was a race complaint in a nearby office
I told them that God was White with Good Hair
They were shocked also by Johnny Carson
I told them he had said the "N-Word"
Not in a bad way I assured them
He was interviewing Pryor
Or was it Dick Gregory
.
PS: True story

As I spoke to my Union reps I told them Race relations have been stagnant since 1968
They responded asking if I really believed what I just said to them
I told them yes when a younger Black interrupted
For a few days though I wondered
Then I realized the reaction
Of Mr. Barack H. Obama
Was Donald Trump
Nothing changed
Since 1968
