“The system will have you thinking ‘legal’ means ‘right’, but remember slavery was legal”

Many laws are bad, written by rich and powerful interests. “The system got y’all thinking ‘legal’ means ‘right.’ Reminder: Slavery was ‘legal’” is a saying that has been printed on many images.

“’@lex_looper: The system wants a nation of people who think legal means right.  - The holocaust was legal. - Slavery was legal.’ CitzensUntd“ was posted on Twitter by FosterArchitecture on April 26, 2015.

“This System Got Y’all Thinking ‘Legal’ Means ‘Right.’ Reminder: Slavery Was ‘Legal’…” was posted on tumblr by How My Brain Works on May 15, 2015. The saying went viral.

“The system will have you thinking ‘legal’ means ‘right’, remember slavery was legal” was posted on Twitter by T. Laray on December 9, 2015. “‘The system got yall thinking, ‘legal’ means right. But remember. slavery was LEGAL.’ #RIPDickGregory” was posted on Twitter by Veteran Freshman - #PapaYuie on August 19, 2017. American comedian, civil rights and vegetarian activist Dick Gregory (1932-2017) is shown in many images and is often credited with the saying, but there is no evidence that he said it.
