Skip to comments.Bill Cosby Tells The Truth Again! (At Least One Black Man Gets It! We Elected One Who Doesn't!)
Posted on 08/22/2011 2:47:07 PM PDT by MindBender26
From a recent Bill Cosby statement:
'They're standing on the corner and they can't speak English.
I can't even talk the way these people talk:
"Why you ain't, Where you is, What he drive, Where he stay, Where he work, Who you be..."
And I blamed the kid until I heard the mother talk. And then I heard the father talk.
Everybody knows it's important to speak English except these knuckleheads. You can't be a doctor with that kind of crap coming out of your mouth In fact you will never get any kind of job making a decent living.
People marched and were hit in the face with rocks to get an education, and now we've got these knuckleheads walking around. The lower economic people are not holding up their end in this deal.
These people are not parenting. They are buying things for kids. $500 sneakers for what? .... and they won't spend $200 for Hooked on Phonics.
I am talking about these people who cry when their son is standing there in an orange suit. Where were you when he was 2? Where were you when he was 12?
Where were you when he was 18 and how come you didn't know that he had a pistol? And where is the father? Or who is his father?
People putting their clothes on backward: Isn't that a sign of something gone wrong? People with their hats on backward, pants down around the crack, isn't that a sign of something? Isn't it a sign of something when she has her dress all the way up and got all type of needles [piercing] going through her body?
What part of Africa did this come from??
We are not Africans. Those people are not Africans; they don't know a thing about Africa .....
I say this all of the time. It would be like white people saying they are European-American. That is totally stupid.
I was born here, and so were my parents and grand parents and, very likely my great grandparents. I don't have any connection to Africa, no more than white Americans have to Germany, Scotland, England, Ireland, or the Netherlands. The same applies to 99 percent of all the black Americans as regards to Africa. So stop, already!! !
With names like Shaniqua, Taliqua and Mohammed and all of that crap........ and all of them are in jail.
Brown or black versus the Board of Education is no longer the white person's problem. We have got to take the neighbourhood back... People used to be ashamed. Today a woman has eight children with eight different 'husbands' -- or men or whatever you call them now. We have millionaire football players who cannot read. We have million-dollar basketball players who can't write two paragraphs.
We, as black folks have to do a better job. Someone working at Wal-Mart with seven kids, you are hurting us. We have to start holding each other to a higher standard... We cannot blame the white people any longer.'
Dr. William Henry 'Bill' Cosby, Jr., Ed.D
THIS is the man who should be the hero they look too, not jackass or sharptone
I wouldn't want to look up to a serial philanderer, like Cosby.
I remember that several years ago he did a cross country speaking tour where he admonished parents to take responsibility for raising their children to be educated, moral adults. I think he was mostly preaching to the religious groups and universities. I also remember that he caught a lot of flack from the likes of Jackson, Waters, Belafonte and the race pimps.
I like the idea of Cosby calling them out of shirking their responsibility. Somebody has to say it and he is a good one. But As I remember the black racists were saying "sure he can talk about responsibilities, he's rich.
Pathetic! Cosby isn’t offering any advice that isn’t good for people of ALL races. Plenty of white trash types that could benefit from his wisdom. And the white liberal is an idiot. Cosby grew up poor in Philadelphia. He’s a hell of a lot more “authentically” black than Obama who has tenuous ties to the black experience in the US and was raised by comfortable grandparents in Hawaii, and abroad for many years. When Obama came back to the States, he attended elite, exclusive schools and associated with Marxists and other anti-American radicals. Cosby may be a democrat, but he’s 100% pro-America.
Actually, African-American inner city parents beat their children to pulp. Cosby has been trying for years to get them to stop whipping and beating their babies.
The one's with whom I've spoken don't understand why the so called "Black Culture" exists, thought one mentioned that it might be a "plot" by White Supremacists and racists to ensure the Black population stay enslaved, uneducated, and in poverty. One from South Africa told me nothing he's experienced in apartheid SA compared to this, as far as "keeping the Black Man down."
Ever seen a documentary called "The Wonderful Whites of West Virginia"?
It will leave you speechless.
I agree with you. I’ve read some of his books (excellent!) and if what he writes is true, he spends a lot of time in the inner cities trying to help cure the numerous pathologies of the inhabitants. He’s VERY tough on them.
Yes, there are plenty of blacks that get this...but those aren’t the blacks he is talking about.
That's a doiby....
He is also my and Jim's and many others here shipmate.
Obama isn’t even 1/2 black. He’s 1/2 white, 1/4 arab 1/4 african...More cracker than black. Its just the color of his skin....
I like Mr. Cosby. Always have. And I feel he’s a positive voice current generations of black kids ought to be paying attention to. He earned his “street cred” by succeeding in a tough business. In a tough town in tough times, he got an education and succeeded.
I’m just not overwhelmed by his Dr.ED. Its a “proforma” kind of degree, not requiring any sort of independent research demanded of doctorates in other fields. >PS
Yes, what he said here is right, but he’s also kind of a monster. Known in the business as”Bob Hope from hell”.
Being upset his own people are falling behind doesn’t make him conservative. I like him but I never had the impression he was a rock solid conservative.
