Comic legend and social activist Dick Gregory came into the studio to talk with Ed Lover! He opened up about how getting bullied and being the class clown in school as a kid lead him to do comedy, and how he got started speaking out about injustice.

He talks about when he first noticed racial inequalities in the sports world: “when I go to the football game and see it, I see slavery all over again.” Dick further expands on that, explaining exactly how the football world operates like a plantation.
