    Everyone is equal

    Today different races can come together as one and possibly could become best of friends. It is hard to believe that before Martin Luther King Jr's famous speech, "I have a dream," people would be treated like trash. Could you imagine how people would march down protesting on the cruelty that was received? People were so frustrated they would do anything to solve the problem of racism. Sometimes people even risked their lives fighting for what they believe in. People of white race would always be considered first in everything. Whether it was a line to drink water or a seating order on the bus. A person of white race would be the first priority. This autobiography by Dick Gregory really gets across of how anyone can do anything. He grows up in a poor family and is not really expected to do anything. As some people looked up to him, "'Dick Gregory'? 'Yeah, that's right'. 'You don't know me, but my son and I always come to watch you run. He's sitting in the car over there, he can't walk without crutches. I'd be obliged if you'd say hello to him and give him an autograph. It would mean a lot to him'" (95). People looked up to him for some of his accomplishments. It is amazing how he grabs you into the book giving many details of his life. It really captures the importance of racism. I feel of much fortune being born when I was. To be in a place where your dad has run off to another woman and you have no money to spare feeding seven children. A very difficult situation to deal with. I would recommend this book to anyone, as it shows the importance of life, and how anyone can make a difference.
