Cosby's heart is probably in the right place, but he really needs to change his approach.

His calls for personal responsibility are appropriate. His attacks on "lower income" Blacks (many of whom are law-abiding janitors, burger flippers, hospital orderlies, etc.) is way off the mark.

Also, considering that Cosby's son was murdered by a Russian immigrant, it would be nice to know why he is so incredibly silent on immigration issues.

Cosby to the people of Detroit: either you change the attitude of your city and community, or drop dead entirely since you keep re-electing the same morons in office again and again for the same mediocre reasons.

Where has Cosby been hiding out? It's nice to hear his own race-bashing. But it's sort of old hat now.

It's MUCH easier to follow black leaders like Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson for many blacks.

Their motto: White man be holding you back! Let me go get you sumpin'. You just sit there by the mailbox and await your check.

Cosby's motto: Stay in school, stay away from gangs, stop having kids out of wedlock, respect yourselves, etc.

Path of least resistance = same shyte - different day for followers of the former.

I am still glad that Cosby is doing his thing.

Now if he had a hit TV show on the air now that showed all these values, he would turn the little slugs into good kids. He'd be a "now" role model.
