Available for trade as long as you don't make me type that word again. This is an autobiography by Dick Gregory. Excerpt on the back: "Good evening, ladies & gentlemen. I understand there are a good many Southerners in the room tonight. I know the South very well. I spent 20 years there one night.... Last time I was down South I walked into this restaurant & this white waitess came up to me & said: 'We don't serve colored people here.' I said, 'That's all right, I don't eat colored people. Bring me a whole fried chicken.' About that time these 3 cousins came in, you know the ones I mean, Klu, Kluck, & Klan, & they say: 'Boy, we're givin' you fair warnin'. Anything you do to that chicken, we're gonna do to you.' About then the waitress brought me my hicken. 'Remember, boy, anything you do to that chicken, we're gonna do to you.' So I put down my knife & fork, & I picked up that chicken, & I kissed it."

Amazing autobiography, it is such an eye opener about racism. It is ready for a new reader.
