'TO BOP OR
NOT TO BOP'
The put-on replaced the put-down
in dealing with squares. Dizzy told
the draft board, back in 1944, that
white America was just as much
his enemy as white Germany. 'At
this stage of my life,' he said, 'whose
foot has been in my asshole buried
up to his knee!' Like Shakespeare's
Coriolanus, telling those who would
send him into exile : 'I'll banish you.
There is a world elsewhere.'
