Bill Cosby used to be as you stated "a poor ass black child from the ghetto" you think he's been famous forever. He from the hood in Philadelphia, and found a way to get.

He's trying to put it through these knuckle headed fools that you don't have to coon your way on BET and other stations.

i agree 100 percent.

the thing that makes me laugh is the fact that he dared utter Ali's name... Ali and Jim Brown and those guys would spit on Whitlock if they were in their primes playing and he was writing about them... he is the exact opposite of what those stood for...
He didn't bother me that much at first and I would just read it and generally ignore it, until I came across an article where he generally confirmed my suspicions, talking about how much love mail he gets from white people when he spouts off on the media. And then I found a video link of him in some debate format discussion forum and he was getting roasted every time he attempted to challenge someone and present his retarded ass point of view.

not taking a side on this issue so don't be offended, but can i ask you if, maybe cosby is trying to change this type of thinking within the black community? that as long as the community thinks it's different it will be treated different for good and bad?

Well the community is right in thinking it's different so I think they should act accordingly.

Being an apologist for any group or race only strengthens the opinion leader's power as an individual, it does nothing for the people except weaken them. Bill Cosby gets this, sadly a lot of people don't. It's cool though, let the black leaders keep making excuses as other races strengthen themselves with inward examination.

I've always had a problem with the "If I can do it, why can't you" attitude that the Bill Cosbys and Larry Elders of the world try to carry. Opportunities vary greatly for different people.

I've met cool black people and obnoxious white people. Here is my opinion on Cosby:


He is bashing the blacks that don't have any intentions of improving the quality of their lives. He bashes the ones that commit crimes and do nothing to contribute to society. I feel he is bashing the pieces of ****, but giving no credit to the ones that work hard, obey the law, and are otherwise good people. What he should be doing is praising the good ones as well. He has every right to bash the pieces of ****, but at least give credit where credit is due.

Fact is, there are far more decent hard-working law abiding black people who are making great contributions to America as whole than there are thugs. Problems is that the negative aspect of Black culture is getting more headlines and attention. Look at sports for instance. T.O. only gets mentioned when he says or does something controversial, yet it's a fact that he does all kinds of things for the underpriviledged but you never hear about it. At the same time we are flooded with puff pieces on the likes of Tedy Bruschi to represent "what's good" about our modern day athletes.

Bill Cosby is right. Did he have to make a grandstand probably not...

Stop making babies, get a job, educate yourself and your children, stop looking for help and help yourself, stop blaming people for choices you made, stop spending money on material things and spend money on educating yourself and your family, stop thinking education and english is white. Stop shooting, robbing, and killing each other. You can go on and on.

If this message is considered kicking someone while they are down so be it.

There was a time the black community was a community an extension of your own house. Helping each other. Thats not easy these days.

T.O. got himself an article in the paper when he wrote a book about sharing called, "Little T learns to share." I was at his book signing and the kids were going crazy over him. One of my friend's little brother asked, "Who do you like better? Tony Romo or Drew Bledsoe." Of course T.O. played it safe and said something along the lines of, "The coach felt a new change in quaterback was right for the team and it was a hard decision."
