How can you say "forget" about a man who has preached for the longest time that Blacks need to get out of the ghetto and stop with the "woe is me" sentiments about past wrongs (Morgan Freeman does the same thing)?forget bill cosby. if im going to look up to anybody its going to malcolm x
Yet look up to Malcom X which yes he pushed hard during the civil rights era. But the man pushed some of the most racist beliefs I can think of off hand, and worked AGAINST the fight against racial segregation by promoting a full out segregated "blacks only" country. ANd I wont even touch the Nation of Islam or how he called Dr. Martin Luther a "chump".
There is alot more out there but im sorry heis someone to look at historically but not someone I'd want my son looking up to.
Honestly would you want your kids looking up to Stalin, Mao, Hitler, Castro, Che etc?
Im sorry but Id rather my boy grow up looking up to Cosby, Freeman, King etc etc than someone in the hiphop world.
