Bill Cosby agrees with Jimmy Carter (America racist for disliking Obama policies)

agree with President Carter that racism is playing a role in recent outbursts against President Obama. During President Obama’s speech on the status of health care reform, some members of congress engaged in a public display of disrespect. While one Representative hurled the now infamous “you lie” insult at the President, others made their lack of interest known by exhibiting rude behavior such as deliberately yawning and sending text messages.

Health care reform is the most important domestic issue facing America today. Disease does not discriminate. African American, White, Asian, Latino, Republican, Democrat, no one in America is immune. So it seems obvious that a debate on health care reform should not include views born solely of partisanship or bigotry.

Various polls prior to the election indicated that between five and ten percent of Americans would never vote for an African American president. That number, of course, only includes those who actually admitted to their prejudice. How many others harbored such feelings but did not respond honestly when asked the question? And how many people oppose Obama’s plan because the President is African American?

In "Birth of a Nation," D.W. Griffith used white actors in black face to portray black legislators as having low intelligence and acting like fools. Today, we have a band of real life congressional fools seemingly bent on blocking any meaningful reform of the health care system. But if we allow even one American to die simply because he or she cannot afford treatment, we are creating a shameful scenario that could aptly be called “Death of a Nation.”

I am so disappointed in Bill Cosby.

Me too, it is completely out of character. Which makes me wonder if he spoke out of fear...

How’s Fat Albert doing these days. He’s come a long way from Eye Spy.

Politics, and especially race-based politics, makes for strange bedfellows.

“Disease does not discriminate.”
You lie! There are quite a few that I can think of that are almost entirely specific to certain demographics...

We are in a spritual battle . In the Greek , it says in the last days kingdom will rise against kingdom, and ethnos will rise against ethnos.

This is alarming.

Bill, a combination of my and Richard Pryor/Eddie Murphy’s comments:

1. Go check out YouTube during the 2005 and 2006 State of the Union speech under your hero’s predecessor. Observe and listen to the behavior.

2. Have a Coke and a smile and STFU.

I am so very sorry to hear Cosby falling in line with the skin deep, race baiters. I am disappointed and saddened by this. At times, he has been a force for bringing up blacks and minorities, and then he does this.

remember when his son was shot (terrible)....

His wife immediately blamed racism and said America is a racist country.

Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.

I saw Cosby live a few years back. I was bored out of my skull with all the cliches, but I didn’t hold it against him, I just thought he was talking to a different audience than me. Now, I see he is just a senile old coot like carter.

“He was the angriest young man I’d ever met.” — actor Robert Culp, in talking about working with Bill Cosby on “I Spy.”

I didn't know that. Makes you wonder how much success, wealth, admiration and social influence a black person has to experience before they think maybe - just maybe - of all the countries in this world, the USA isn't as absolutely rotten as they've been taught.

I don't know - maybe something they could contemplate between sips of champagne?

I used to work in an office down the hall a 100 feet from Bill Cosby at the Kaufman Astoria film studios. The guy I worked for was friendly with Cosby, he used to bring clients to meet Cosby and he would cooperate by being cordial, BUT, he insisted to me Bill Cosby was a racist from their conversations. It was one guys opinion, so take it for what it’s worth.

Come on, Bill. You are much more intelligent than that.
