Dick Gregory: Shoplifting Team
"We had an integrated shoplifting team," comedian activist Dick Gregory once recalled. "That's right. Here's the way it worked. We had six black guys and six white guys. And by the week before Christmas, we would go to the biggest department store in St. Louis and the six black guys would go in and once they see us all the store detectives start following us, right? And while they were watching us, the six white guys go in and wipe them out!"
