While watching the clip below please be prepared for rough language. Although Dick Gregory expresses himself in a colorful way, the message behind his words can change Americas police brutality issues for lifetimes to come.

How do you make a cop change? It’s simple.. you pass legislation and say every cop has to be insured… Everybody carrying a gun has to be insured. The first time you violate that, you lose your license…. Now do you hate niggas more than you like feeding your family?… Give them something that they can’t afford to lose.. -Dick Gregory-
