Bill Cosby Tells Black People Off Again

Jul 7, 2010 | Posted by: womanistmusings | Full story: www.womanist-musings.com

Do you remember the good ole days when Bill Cosby was too busy selling Jello Pudding Pops to open his mouth about race, drugs and poverty? Just because he was America's favorite dad during the eighties, does not mean that we have forgotten that he was too busy "being human" to get involved in the civil rights movement of the 60's. When comedians like Dick Greggory were giving it all for the cause and risking their careers, Cosby took the safe route. In fact, safe is about all he has ever been good at, and now he has the nerve to repeatedly stand on a podium and lecture people.

It shows. Aries is a masculine fire sign and girls who are Aries tend to be aggressive. I dont know how I was able to tell that probably because Im an Aries too.

Its not as bad as Geminis though who have split personalities.

You guys complain when we blame the power structure for our problems, but y'all will be the 1st to blame the minorities for Americas economy. Sounds a bit hypocritical to me.

That's because you're running around in a tiny little short circuit.

Blacks cause the problems with the economy, not the other way around.

Negro logic REALLY IS just like having one foot nailed to the floor...lol!

My problem with Bill is how broad he paints his brush! He doesn't distinguish between poor blacks still struggling to overcome, he is including all of you who defend him as well. If you are not a millionaire, in the class of he and Oprah and Bob Johnson and the like, then you too are the problem. After all it's not the lowest class of Blacks who can afford $400 tennis shoes. And lest we forget, it's probably been a long time since Bill was in the hood! So he is most likely relying on memory or the same news media clips that we all look on in disgust. Lest he forget, his own child was killed by a man who believed those stereotypes that Bill continues to perpetuate. What is a Black man doing driving a $100,000 Mercedes. Must be a drug dealer! Shame on Bill! Money does not cure all ills Bill. Just ask your crack head daughter oh perfect parent!

Cosby was right in what he said. He DID however ignore the social factors, as the author of the article points out. Nonetheless, what the hell is wrong with telling people to be responsible, get an education and stop being thugs?

So I would say he's right, but doesn't tell the whole picture. And I would add, since white people admire and listen to Cosby, he should attack them too! How about telling THEM to stop creating a one-parent society, cooking meth, etc... The WHITE communities, especially in rural USA, are a MESS and EVERYONE ignores this.

RESPONSIBILITY... it's a good thing, from the corporate boardroom to the teenage bedroom.

Low income blacks are not the ones who can afford $400 sneakers, yet we are the greatest consumers of such material items. And the majority of the time, the same ones wearing $400 sneakers cannot speak a proper sentence, nor can they write or read one. And where are the parents? Unable to speak, write or read a proper sentence either.

Well, I don't like the fact that Cosby say back and didn't participate in the efforts of the Civil Rights movement, but six years when he went on his tirade about the current state of the black community, he was scorned by the black community. Why are we getting so defensive about the negativity he's witnessed and gotten fed up with over the years? It's like we'd rather sit back and let the black
community destroy itself, rather than admit that we have problems and try to fix them.
Very smart , so many ppl just love to hop on the negative so much tht they get off topic. Ppl would rather blend in then to see someone taking a stand when the time Is right
