In my opinion, anybody who voted for obummer is a racist because race is the absolute only reason anybody could vote for this piece of garbage.
But is that the only reason to dislike cosby?
In other words, what other evidence is there that cosby dislikes white people?
Hard to say... any given Democrat will always get at least 90% of the black vote, regardless of race.
As much as I want, and believe Obama deserves to go down; this is going to be nasty in the race department.
If comments like this can’t be distinguished between Bill Cosby or Louis Farrakhan, this will be u g l y.
Everyone is pulling out the race cards. Absolute freakin’ bs, people are insane on the Left.
Screw you Bill!
Most Democrats are Racists...some have been brainwashed....others....well....you figure it out
I don’t think Cosby dislikes white people or any other people for that matter. I know he is highly critical of race-baiters and black kids who are wasting their lives doing stupid things - and I agree with him.
To be fair, there are tons of reasons to vote for Obama: greed, laziness, ignorance, envy.
The Cos seems to be getting weird(er)...I’m willing to give him some slack and blame it partly on approaching senility and the murder of his son.
I formerly good (at least I thought so) black friend and colleague has stopped talking to me and I can only guess it is over Obama. Maybe, he is embarrassed. At least I hope that is it.
Bill Cosby has been embraced, loved and monetarily supported in luxury by horrible, racist, white people since the beginning of his career.
And he spits in the face of Martin Luther King, and votes for the color of someone’s skin.
I hope his spawn experience the “new slavery”.
Inheritance tax, anyone? Loss of mortgage deductions? Loss of 401k plans?
Let Cosby’s heirs, who owe his “white” audience everything, experience the stupidity of racist voting practices by “their own people”....(isn’t that how Holder put it?)
Sometimes, I wish there was a 20 second editing window on FR. I know, there is a preview button, and my new resolution is to use it. sigh....
If he is a Democrat and a Hyphen, then yes he is a racist.
Go back and read all the racist crap he said and wrote during the early to mid ‘70’s if you have any doubt he’s still a racist.
Racists and useful idiots manipulated by the propaganda machine.
I used to service a lot of equipment at Kodak back in the days when Bill Cosby was their spokesman. I was in Kodak Park often enough to become familiar with some of the guards. More than one told me that part of BC’s exit was that he wouldn’t allow white people on the set while they were filming.
He is not anti-white, but when he was most powerful in Hollywood he was very affirmative action oriented. He saw first hand the lack of opportunities given to black people, and so when he had become powerful enought to call the shots, he put black people in every role he could, in front of the camera and behind. In the late 80's if you were black in Hollywood, your career path eventually went through Cosby.
And although he gave preference to blacks, he demanded absolute excellence from everyone he hired, probably more so than whites. He gave them the chance, but they had to perform. Many, many in Hollywood owe their careers to him.
So does that make him racist? In my view, absolutely not. He responded to the racism coming from whites and turned it into a positive thing. And when you listen to him these days when he sounds bitter towards blacks, you have to look a things from his perspective. He took a lot of arrows so that the next generation would not have to, demanded excellence in everything they did, and was confident that that would overcome everything. What he didn't see was that many blacks would turn away from that and embrace the new thug culture and rap, almost confirming the worst of earlier white stereotypes about blacks.
Here in 2011, relations are far better between blacks and whites than when he was starting out, both in Hollywood and out in America from people who grew up watching him, and he can claim his own part of making that happen.
Cosby took down a big reward when he figured out the Tywanna Brawley show was a hoax, but he still supports Al Sharpton. Hard to figure.
The murder of his son Ennis, has left him very bitter.
No Bill Cosby is a good man that’s just been foolde like so many people.
