BILL HAS DONE IT AGAIN.
They're standing on the corner and they can't speak English.
I can't even talk the way these people talk:
Why you ain't,
Where you is,
What he drive,
Where he stay,
Where he work,
Who you be...
And I blamed the kid until I heard the mother talk.
And then I heard the father talk.
Everybody knows it's important to speak English except these knuckleheads. You can't be a doctor with that kind of crap coming out of your mouth.
In fact you will never get any kind of job making a decent living.
People marched and were hit in the face with rocks to get an Education, and now we've got these knuckleheads walking around.
The lower economic people are not holding up their end in this deal.
These people are not parenting. They are buying things for kids.
$500 sneakers for what?
And they won't spend $200 for Hooked on Phonics.
I am talking about these people who cry when their son is standing there in an orange suit.
Where were you when he was 2?
Where were you when he was 12?
Where were you when he was 18 and how come you didn't know that he had a pistol?
And where is the father? Or who is his father?
People putting their clothes on backward:
Isn't that a sign of something gone wrong?
People with their hats on backward, pants down around the crack, isn't that a sign of something?
Isn't it a sign of something when she has her dress all the way up and got all type of needles [piercing] going through her body?
What part of Africa did this come from??
We are not Africans. Those people are not Africans; they don't know a thing about Africa .....
I say this all of the time. It would be like white people saying they are European-American. That is totally stupid.
I was born here, and so were my parents and grand parents and, very likely my great grandparents. I don't have any connection to Africa, no more than white Americans have to Germany , Scotland , England , Ireland , or the Netherlands . The same applies to 99 percent of all the black Americans as regards to Africa . So stop, already!!!
With names like Shaniqua, Taliqua and Mohammed and all of that crap ......... And all of them are in jail.
Brown or black versus the Board of Education is no longer the white person's problem.
We have got to take the neighborhood back.
People used to be ashamed. Today a woman has eight children with eight different 'husbands'-- or men or whatever you call them now.
We have millionaire football players who cannot read.
We have million-dollar basketball players who can't write two paragraphs. We, as black folks have to do a better job.
Someone working at Wal-Mart with seven kids, you are hurting us.
We have to start holding each other to a higher standard..
We cannot blame the white people any longer.'
Dr.. William Henry 'Bill' Cosby, Jr., Ed..D.
WELL SAID, BILL
It's NOT about color...
It's about behavior!!!

Bill Cosby says a lot of things that a Caucasian can't, and they're all true.

Mr. Cosby is a fine example of what the African American public should strive to become. Strong, independent individuals that are an asset to society, a loving parent and financial supporter of his family.

Hell,there isn't even white people(which history has shown) who are at that point. I don't think anyone who can expect only one race to totally be there should be making a request for, another to be there.
I think everyone in society should make that effort;Not just one race.

If only...Would someone please tell me why the black community will not embrace this idealogy? It makes perfect sense. But NO!, They call Bill Cosby an "Uncle Tom" and your so called leaders like Jesse Jackson chastise Bill for saying these things. When will ya'll realize that Bill is the one you should be listening to, NOT Jesse! Why would you not want a stable home and for your children to be educated? Why wouldn't you want your children to live in safety? If you don't think that what Bill Cosby said is the answer to the race's black problems, then just what would you suggest? Surely not MORE Govt. programs and MORE Affirmitive Action laws? Is the white man still holding you down? REALLY?...It is a shame that you won't REALLY do something about the way your social actions are destroying your future. There are so many young black people that are so very smart and could really contribute to society as a whole but because of the thug mentality that permeats throughout your entire culture, those poor young people don't stand a chance. There have been a lot of good contributions to society made by blacks throughout history but it could be so much more...if only you would embrace REAL change and take responsibility for your own actions instead of blaming the white race.

Another idiot jacking his jowls.....how many white folks came to mind when you read the first post?? NONE....how many black folks did you think of ??? Damn near every one of them. An educated black man, that is a father to his children, a provider to his family and an asset to their community is VERY RARE INDEED!!!!! When is everybody going to pull all of that PC crap out of their heads and start opening their eyes to the TRUTH??? When they can put their clothes on right, speak correctly and actually work a job, and not receive some government aid, then they will be my equal. Until then, they are just a tick on the ass of society.

Now granted, the same principle applies to the meth heads bouncing around Dyer and Lake Co as well. You can't be setting a good example when you're chasing around batteries and cold medicine.
