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.
I had always liked him until he supported Tawana Brawley without getting all the facts (even paid for her college education), he bought out the rights to the Little Rascals because he didn't like the way black people were represented -- loved the show and never thought anything of it and my friend who is a limo driver went to pick him up at the airport and he had a temper tantrum because they didn't send him a black driver. So my friend left him there.

I totally agree with Mr. Crosby and Mayor Booker but I commend leaders like Al Shapton and Jesse Jackson for their efforts as well. Great minds think alike.

Cosby is right on! I'm sick and tired of whiny crybaby Blacks blaming Whites for their own shortcomings. Blacks need to get their head out of their a** and take responsibility for their typical, apparently genetic, obnoxious and violent behavior. I'm tired of walking on eggshells around Blacks. To hell with them.

You know, its sad when someone speaks some truth and they are shunned and hated by their peers for it. For far too long the black community has been whining and crying about these disabilities inflicted upon their people due to racism and discrimination. I'm sorry, but racism is a mere novelty anymore these days and discrimination went out the window a long time ago. These things no longer play a pivotal role in our society as they did during the days of Martin Luther King and Malcom X. These black Generation X-ers in all honesty, wouldnt know REAL racism if it slapped them. Its just a stigma that has been handed down from their parents whos parents handed it down to them. RACISM DOESNT EXIST ANYMORE!! I mean, for the love of God, there is a black man running for president!!!! STOP YOUR FUCKING CRYING ALREADY!

There was no outrage because the Knoxville police departmend was urged by the local media authorities not to release a full report because it might cause some "White Racial Upheaval." The facts are facts. I think that it is wrong on the part of law enforcement to hide things from the public. Fact of the matter is that these spearchucking beasts raped and killed A MAN and his girlfriend showing that they have no sense of humility and no moral values. Their savagry knows no bounds.

Yeah, Bill. Right on the head. People, stop pointing the finger and notice the other 3 pointing back toward the sender of blame, whoever it may be (has done the same). There are folks that would keep us on the defensive. DON'T STAY THERE! Stand up, face the music and then play it for your friend. Friends don't let friends blame others. And I can best ditto this by copy and paste: "Cosby saved some of most pointed words for radio stations that play music that he called "pro-murder and anti-women" and said adults are equally complicit if they fail to speak up." And if that rubs your fur the wrong way, for (ANY) sake, turn the cat around. Mr. Cosby, May God bless you and may no stone go unturned. Keep in mind, every political correctness infringes upon a current freedom in an effort to invoke one of less stature. Think not? Try my words. At your discovery, resist political "correctness". Can I have a definition, please? Unbiased? Neutral? You can't give it to me and neither can anyone you know. ANYTHING YOU COME UP WITH IS PURELY SUBJECTIVE. So don't bother me with it. By that point, just who are they that make and push these determinations, and just who says they have any power to subject us anyway? Is that globally warm enough for you?

BILL COSBY FOR PRESIDENT! The man speaks ...the...TRUTH!

The main culprit of race hatred are the Al Sharpton's and the Rappers. It's all about what the "government" can do for them and how much they can get paid for their alleged suffering at the hands of slave holders who dies 2-300 years ago.

Major BS. Screw every one of them.

Another cause of continued race hatred in this country. NAACP is a major source of friction and should be called on the carpet for it if the MSM in this country had any WHITE BALLS. Sorry but this whities doesn't believe a word that comes fromtheir biased mouths.

I would like to see a Debate between Bill Cosby, Al Sharpton, Jessee Jackson, O.J. Simpson, Barry Bonds, and ex Washington DC Mayor Marion Barry. Now, THAT would be a must-watch Debate.

I'm not really a fan of Bill Cosby but the message he has been sending out for the past few years is absolutely correct. It not only fits the black family's situation but also the white families who are raising children. Most parents have become 'friends' with their children instead of being the parent. I have five children and nine grandchildren and I raised my children with rules and manners! Society needs to go back to that practice so that children will know where they stand, what they should and should not do and then get on with their lives!

Where is the OUTRAGE? What have you done?? You like so many other like to run your mouth but when it's time for you to put your money where your mouth is you cry "FOUL", what difference does it make what color the couple was and what state they were from? You see color I see crime. The outrage should be the same no matter what color the person is. It's people like your self that continue to keep the color lines alive and growing, "A pack of black thugs" Why not call them criminal's? Why is it a pack when they are black? Why are they thugs when they are black? This is 2008. Get your head out of the raciest frame of thinking and think like a person. I don't know the case and I donít claim to, but I would hope the justice system works and makes sure the guilty person or people are prosecuted. Not some crazy mob justice because what does that accomplish? Not a thing. You as well as any civilized human being should be outraged when ever anyone is killed and if your not I feel sorry for you, if your only outraged when white people are killed I feel even sorrier for you because you have issues in your own life that you need to take care of before you have the right to be outraged.

Your dingy undies are so cool. asalama lakam you sorry freaks. Don't listen to bill. You guys are just were we want you. Just keep doing what your doing. The white people are so proud of you all. As long as you keep serving us.. ie, trash p/u, maids, dishwashers, lawn care and farm pickers. We truly love you all. Oh yea.. in this country we allow blax to bathe more than once a week. Hell try for twice a week and see how that works out. You may get rashes at first but it's just the skin in shock from being clean. It should clear up in a generation or two.
