Bill Cosby spoke about his feelings regarding black people and education in his recent rant called We Cannot Blame the White People Any Longer.
Cosby is probably the only person who could get away with talking the way he does because he is well respected among people of all races.
People marched and were hit in the face with rocks to get an education, and now we've got these knuckleheads walking around, he says.
They're standing on the corner and they can't speak English. I can't even talk the way these people talk .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.
Cosby is especially upset that we have millionaire football players who cannot read or write two paragraphs.
We, as black folks, have to do a better job, he stated. We have to start holding each other to a higher standard.
He believes that Brown or black versus the Board of Education is no longer the white person's problem. We have got to take the neighborhood back.
For the entire rant, see:
“Cosby is probably the only person who could get away with talking the way he does.....”
That Cosby is the only person stating what is right, is scary.
Responsibility...what a scary word!?
There are some plain truth speaking black folks out there, Walter Williams comes to mind off hand.
FYI, the Cosby speech is genuine, but it’s a few years old— the original is from 2004.
He hits it right on the head. THIS is what kids should have to listen to in school NOT Obama the Marxist.
As in the past, Bill Cosby will take some serious heat from the so-called leaders of the Black comunity for this. Once again they will accuse him of betraying his people and being an “Uncle Tom”. I’m glad he has the perseverence to stick to his guns. It’s this type of attitude which will move us into a world where one’s race is almost an afterthought instead on a defining characteristic. Take note of who you will see attacking him over this. They are the ones that are not interested in truly moving race relations forward, rather they will be the ones interested in doing just the opposite in the guise of ‘helping’ the black community.
Let me say this....Black conservatives are hated far more than us whitey cons by the left in America...It is amazing that a black conservative in this country has the guts to stand up! I applaud them all!!!God Bless them! Because you know why? They have far greater courage than most on the right who are white.
Well now Obama is saying basically the same thing as Cosby so it’s okay.
Bill Cosby is dead on. I grew up in the 60’s and 70’s. He is dead on.
I didn’t judge a person by their skin tone growing up. 0bama has done more to divide us by race than any political figure in modern times.
The problem is not just with blacks - There’s lots of good digs that can be got in at Leftists with their trashing of the high school graduation rate over the last 30 years.
When I was in H.S. one of my good friends was a black girl who was very smart. She really studied hard. She was shunned by the other black students. She had us, but I couldn't believe how she was treated. She became a successful doctor. It is sad that many black children feel it isn't cool to do well in school.
The commies are doing a good job of demoralizing all of our children.
So true. So many are blind.
that's a noble platitude spoken frequently by folks from Minneapolis and other areas that are fairly low minority populations
in a place where I come from like Jackson Mississipi where whites are a minority of only 25% one understands quickly what their own white skin color implies to the majority
No, it will take some conservative political leaders to start telling it like Cosby is telling it.
Until Whitey is ready to blame Socialist/Democrats who control all inner city education and big city governments, it will not change.
Why is Whitey afraid to tell it like it is?
....so b/c its old (5 yrs)....its not relevant?
...the facts, speak for themselves.
Imagine being who you are, having the beliefs that you do, and living in a totalitarian communist state like the former USSR. How much courage would you have to muster to stand up and say the sorts of things that Bill Cosby is saying now?
I can tell you from having lived it, that being a black person with solid conservative beliefs, and dearly held patriotic views (in the black community) is very much like what I just described.
Only those blacks who have risen to great heights of wealth and fame can get away with saying these sorts of things in the black community without paying a heavy price for doing so.
You think white liberals think in lockstep? They've got nothing on black liberals. I almost can't describe to you how deep radical leftism really is in our black communities. It's nearly the cultural default setting.
I know this because I'm from there.
