5. Bet that ticked off police. I think it was Richard Pryor who joked about a policeman

following him in the South. The police were very hostile to Blacks who could read. Pryor said he was driving very carefully down a steep hill and as he go close to the intersection he saw a Stop sign -- "Oh Lord, if I stop they'll harass me because I'm educated, if I run it, they'll get me for running a Stop sign." Of course he really embellished the story. Might have been another comedian.
