Love Your Life: The Dropped Jewel Of The Day (April 27, 2018)

Buy Black Fridays“Anywhere you go, there’s a black person kicking a**. The thing about it is you can’t wait until there’s already a black person kicking a** somewhere before you decide to go there and kick some yourself. Doesn’t have to be like basketball, where you know a hundred other black guys are trying to do it, so you figure it’s okay for you to do it. Sometimes you’ve got to be the first. Shirley Chisholm didn’t see any black women running for president before she decided to do it. The way she told it was “Somebody had to do it first.” So, the next time you think about doing something, and you hear somebody say, ‘Aw, man, black people don’t do stuff like that,’ think about Shirley Chisholm. And think about Mae Jemison.” -Dick Gregory

Lots of Love,
