Dick Gregory

Beyonce and Jay-Z are taking heat for the Cuba excursion because all the RACIST WHITE PEOPLE are on the hunt to attack African Americans -- so claims legendary comedian Dick Gregory.

Gregory -- whose political attacks are epic -- told our photog at Reagan National Airport,  Beyonce and Jay-Z have been skewered because of the color of their skin.

And he warns everyone ... "We're not the caretaker of Black folk."

And one more thing -- Gregory seems to think Dennis Rodman went to North Korea as part of an Obama-sanctioned secret mission.

Dick Gregory -- old but still bold.

That's right look at the crime stats in the U.S. Most crime is intra-racial...occurring between people of the same race.

The thing about it is, white people do get upset when they see successful black people and I'm not saying all white people but majority racist white people and jealous black people. Angie and Brad takes all types of exotic excursions around the world and its never a problem but the moment Bey and Jay decide to take a trip to Cuba, it's distasteful. The same with the Obama's. Barack took his family on a trip to Hawaii in order to take a break from the most stressful job in the country and white people whined their asses off until he got back home. Because they're black and rich, you call them stuck up. Why can't they just be successful...?

Dick Gregory is proof you can be a ground-breaking leader in the civil rights movement, then, decades later, have nothing significant to say about current events.


Dick, nobody cares about their skin color. It's not even an issue, or at issue.


What is, or was, at issue, is, are these two Americans breaking the law? Are they going to get away with it because they are rich and famous? Do they CARE if they are breaking the law? Do they know?


I don't hear any "they're black" comments anywhere. Do you? I mean, other than in your own head?
