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.


ted bruschi got the exposure cuz he overcame a serious illness and persevered. theres plenty of athletes white and black who do charitable work like TO and dont get the headlines. mike miller for one and plenty of others. and they dont have the negative headlines that TO has at times so why should he be praised more than the rest?

If a famous white man goes public about how much he is disgraced by the white community, whatever... who cares. When a black man does it... OMG.

Bill Cosby has the freedom to say what ever he wants in the same fashion that the OP has the freedom to say what he wants to about Cosby.

I like him as a comedian and his show but I disagree with what hes saying overall. I don't know why race is such a huge issue in society though. in the future everyone will be 1 race.

Ohhh gotcha. Yeah people always say things liked that, that because of interracial marriage there will only be one race, but usually when people say that they have black/white in mind. They forget about the other hundreds of races on the earth, but i see what youre sayin.

For future reference I'd leave Mind of Mencia out when you're referencing scientific sources haha

My main problem with Cosby is that he harps on the urban vernacular and wants people to talk a certain way. Thats stupid. Thats not how languages work.

he wants black men to stop calling thier woman bi-tches and thier buddies ni-ggas

he wants black women to stop cussing in front of thier 5 year old children

and I can see where he is coming from


I hope my kids speak proper English....it is really hard to get a respectable job other than being a rapper or an athlete if you talk like your from Compton.

and guess who started calling them ni-ggas? whos to blame the white community but thats not my point. etiquette is overrated. I agree that they shouldn't be cussing at there kids. but there to strict on this ****. if youve seen south park they have this whole ni-gga guy episode where they ban the word ni-gger guy but not the word ni-gger. its just showing how corrupt the whole world is

who funds BET and the image they perpetuate? what about the record companies that promote "gangsta rap" albums?

What kind of political operations have been undertaken against the black community since the CoIntelPro agents working against Martin Luther King and Malcomb X in the 60's?

Why do you think black music like this would never be funded by a major record company? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WKKnp6XsCo4

divide and conquer. they WANT you to be angry with "the white man". that way they ensure that we'll never work together.
same thing is true about white people hating black people. the media perpetuates a cultural image that will keep racism going strong.

they don't want you to focus on the corrupt politicians and black leaders that are perpetuating the cycle of poverty, crime, and violence.
