God bless Bill Cosby. One of the few who should be considered "black leadership" in this country, and not charlatans like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and Jeremiah Wright. Cosby is right on the money. Young African Americans should look to him for wisdom and as a role model, not these idiotic rappers who make millions off of profanity, demeaning women and glorifying violence.

He is so right. But it is funny coming from someone who is racist. He just handles it differently.

My heart goes out to Bill Cosby. He's got an uphill battle. But, God love him, he keeps telling the truth. I wish him well. All of us, from all races, are guilty of enabling bad behavior, but it is especially destructive among Black Americans. If a kid think he has no options, then he has none. Many children are spoiled with money and things, but so many are also spoiled with destructive ideas and negative beliefs about themselves. These things Bill says about Black America are really true now about all of America. We all need to stand up and quit blaming.

I say amen to Bill Cosby and it seems that people would sit up and take notice. He wants people to stand up for what is right and work for what they need and study in school. all the things that most of us have had to do.being black or white isn't a prize in its self.

Way to go Bill. We need to stop putting any race in front of the word American. And we need to stop gathering in groups of one color,NAACP or KKK and we need to stop putting ladels on churches like black church.That's raceses to put a race label on a church or a fellow countrymen. If you don't want raceism, then stop promoting it.

The liberal Dems have created a voting bloc with entitlement programs. They don't want to help them,they want to keep them down & depending on them for their livlihood.They do not believe they can make it on their own.If the blacks want to blame anyone for their situation..the fault lies with the very people who are claiming to help them..the liberal Dems

Mr. Cosby is painfully honest in his assesment of the self-destructive underclass behavior that continues to be held up as a role model for young people in the black community.

May Bill Cosby and Rev Manning continue to fight the good fight not only in the black community, but what they say should apply to every community in this country. They may be the two leaders who can save the U.S. We all know the politicians can't

Cosby is right, as usual. He's so right that the Wall Street and Mass Media criminals (JEW BANKER & MEDIA MAFIA whose merchant ancestors were the slave traffickers) arranged a "hit" on his son for interfering with the "intellectual panhandlers" bought and paid for by said MAFIA for the purpose of pitting Black against White in cultural warfare while the JEWS watch the destruction and laugh. Other beacons of TRUTH for the Black community are Professor Tony Martin (researcher who exposed the truth behind slavery) and Paris (rapper whose "What Would You Do" exposes the truth about the Bush/Skull&Bones/NWO/666 agenda). Cosby is right that Blacks are PARTLY to blame for their own failures, but ONLY for having fallen for the JEW MEDIA disinformation which falsely blames Whites.

"Dennis is 50% right with his comment" "The liberal Dems have created a voting bloc with entitlement programs. They don't want to help them,they want to keep them down & depending on them for their livlihood.They do not believe they can make it on their own.If the blacks want to blame anyone for their situation..the fault lies with the very people who are claiming to help them..the liberal Dems"

BOTH political oparties are BOUGHT AND PAID FOR by the same criminal establishment (see my prior comment). JEWS ARE THE MOST RACIST RACE ON EARTH, PRACTICING RACIAL APARTHEID IN ISRAEL WHILE PRETENDING TO "OPPOSE" RACISM ELSEWHERE. The Jews have a Yiddish term "Schwarzers" which is equivalent to "the N-word" and used ONLY among fellow Jews and in the MOST DEMEANING OF CONTEXTS. WHITES ARE NOT THE REAL ENEMY OF BLACKS!!!!

I've always liked Bill Cosby ... thngs like this explain why he's bashed on Family Guy (a cartoon I like when they stick to humor and don't try to bash you over the head with liberal ignorance). Mostly I've liked him because he seems genuine, caring regardless of you color, and responsible. It goes without saying he appears to be integrous - I know how hard it is not to sell out to make it in 'show business'. My prayers, for what they're worth, are with him.

First of all, I didn't know Bill Cosby was racist ... that saddens me but, what can I do - his plate is already full.
Now, as for saving America, I say Clarence Thomas is my man! I've always though a Clarence Thomas / Newt Gingrich ticket would be the one to win, until I saw Newt's global warming sellout commercial with pelosi.

Bill Cosby is right. However, if he prevails, who will do the jobs that educated people won't do?

Where is the Outrage at the two white college couple in Tenn. that were carjacked, raped, mutilated and killed by a pack of black thugs? Where was the news coverage of that?
