  • Bill Cosby Tells Don Lemon Black Men Need To Raise Their Kids, Has Message For ‘No-groes’

    CNN anchor Don Lemon has, of late, turned the focus of his frequent conversations on race to the idea of personal responsibility in the African American community. On Saturday night’s edition of CNN Newsroom, Lemon continued that controversial trend with comic legend Bill Cosby, who has also felt the heat of controversy on the subject. Cosby talked to Lemon about young black men raising their kids, over-medication of juvenile inmates, and may have even coined a new word: “No-groes.” For the past few months, Don Lemon has courted controversy with several segments pegged to his general agreement with comments by...

    Comedian Bill Cosby says the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the death of Florida teen isn't about racism. Cosby, an outspoken voice on cultural issues, says the recent trial did not prove that Zimmerman had racist motives at any point during his confrontation with Martin. That means race shouldn't be a part of the conversation regarding the case. “Let’s not go into a racial discussion unless we really have something there,” he told radio hosts Domenick Nati and Nate Foutz. Cosby also blasted the news media and said that he had stopped paying attention to “high-profile” court cases after the...

    Former Floridian Rep. Allen West had a blunt response to comedian Bill Cosby’s published weekend opinion piece, speaking of the attributes of Muslims and encouraging Americans to emulate them: Have you lost your mind? “Bill Cosby said we should [be] more like Muslims,” Mr. West wrote, on his Twitter account. “[You] mean honor killings, beheadings, suicide bombings? Hope [you’re] kidding sir.” Mr. West was responding to an opinion piece published in The New York Post written by Mr. Cosby.

    Unless he had just eaten a bad cup of Jell-O pudding, it would appear that actor and comedian Bill Cosby seems to really, really hate Republicans. The veteran entertainer made that very clear Monday morning when he claimed that Republicans not applauding President Obama’s State of the Union address in unison with Democrats was “as bad as the people who were against any kind of desegregation.” He also wondered aloud about whether or not Republicans today are upset that slavery is no longer legal. Cosby made these remarks on the CNN morning show “Starting Point” after soon-to-be-former host Soledad O’Brien referenced...

    Comedy and television icon Bill Cosby slammed Republicans who failed to stand for President Obama’s State of the Union speech, likening them to racists who opposed desegregation. “I think we have people sitting there,” he said, referring to the president’s SOTU speech, during a CNN television interview reported by Mediaite, “who are as bad as the people who were against any kind of desegregation.” His comments came in context of a discussion about racism and the 1965 Bloody Sunday march across Selma, Ala., Mediate reported.

    Famed actor and comedian Bill Cosby on Thursday said people who are critical of President Obama are "acting like they have no idea what he inherited" at the White House. Cosby compared the first four years of Obama's presidency to the Greek myth of Sisyphus, the king condemned to an eternity of rolling a rock up a hill only to have it fall back down to the bottom. "I see Obama as Sisyphus in the first four years. And nobody would speak about the size of the rock, or the elevation of the hill. All you hear people talk about...

    “When you carry a gun, you mean to harm somebody, kill somebody,” Bill Cosby claimed in a Friday interview with Deborah Simmons of The Washington Times. “We’ve got to get the gun out of the hands of people who are supposed to be on neighborhood watch,” the comedian, actor and commentator advocated in his first public comments on the Trayvon Martin shooting. “Without a gun, I don’t see Mr. Zimmerman approaching Trayvon by himself,” he declared. Celebrity status and the ability to have his views shared with millions notwithstanding, there are more than a few problems with that opinion. First,...

    “The gun.” Those two simple words flowed easily from the mouth of social commentator Bill Cosby during an exclusive interview Friday regarding the Trayvon Martin case, arguably the most high-profile, citizen-on-citizen U.S. slaying facing the Obama administration.

    Donald Trump is escalating his feud with Bill Cosby, and it’s pretty racist. Surprised? In recent weeks Donald Trump has been cashing in on the subtle (and not so subtle) racism still alive and well in America by aligning himself with the birther movement. No other president in history has ever had his natural-born citizenship questioned. No one ever cared to look at Jimmy Carter’s birth certificate—where else was the guy supposed to be from? But Barack Hussein Obama—it’s just too much for some Americans to accept that this guy could actually be from America. Not their America. After creating...

"Just shut up."He just can't stand the idea of anyone challenging Obama, and especially not on the grounds of Obama's constitutional (in)eligibility for office. Donald Trump's broadside on Obama's unexplored and, therefore, unknown history is causing liberals to see red. Bill Cosby looks like he's going to throw up at the idea of The Donald tossing his hat into the ring. I think that gives you some idea of the power of the issue.

    The growing level of violent crime in the black American community is abhorrent. A recent study by the New York Times reported that sixty-one percent of all homicides in New York City are perpetrated by black Americans. A firearm is used seventy percent of the time. Despite generally declining crime rates, gun violence in urban areas is skyrocketing. In an open letter to President Obama, New York State Senators Bill Perkins and Eric Adams put these numbers in perspective: No statistic is more telling than the fact that during this period the number of homicides in our one city, thirty-four...

    Jeremiah, you're no Jeremiah. Although Barack Obama's controversial former pastor the Rev. Jeremiah Wright puts himself at the center of a prophetic tradition of the Afro-American church, he's not much of a prophet. The prophet in the Biblical mode often tells his people what they don't want to hear. Wright only mimics the prophet in his fiery condemnations of America. When it comes to the feelings of those who employ him, he's strictly on tiptoe. Around the time Wright was fluffing his feathers before the national media, a genuine prophet appeared in Newark, N.J., to deliver a tough look-in-the-mirror message...

    NEWARK, N.J. -- Comedian Bill Cosby told several hundred people at a conference of community associations Thursday to stand up and confront the ills facing black Americans and ignore those he called "intellectual panhandlers." Characterizing his own words as "blunt, but not harsh," Cosby criticized a culture in which "babies are wearing $40 sneakers while their mothers are feeding them Oodles of Noodles" and in which pimps and murderers are seen as heroes. During a speech that lasted nearly an hour, he began by comparing current attitudes to a patient who ignores a toothache until it requires major surgery. Several...

    A few years ago, Bill Cosby set off a firestorm with a speech excoriating his fellow African-Americans for, among other things, buying $500 sneakers instead of educational toys for their children. In a recent book, Come On People, he repeats his argument that black Americans spend too much money on designer clothes and fancy cars, and don't invest sufficiently in their futures. Many in the black community have been critical of Cosby for blaming poor people rather than poor public policies. Others have defended Cosby's comments as an honest expression of uncomfortable truths. But notably absent from the Cosby affair...

Stern filed a $60 million lawsuit against Rita Cosby on Tuesday over "false allegations" in her new book "Blonde Ambition: The Untold Story Behind Anna Nicole Smith's Death." The book claims Stern and Larry Birkhead - the father of Smith's daughter Dannielynn - were lovers who plotted to get control of the late star's estate.

    snip Several decades ago, when I was head of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s Southern Christian Leadership Conference, I would have joined with Jackson and Sharpton with little reservation to call for Imus's demise. But somewhere along the way since then, reality intervened and I began to reject the view that America is a racist, hostile environment for people with my skin color. Further, I began engaging in the unforgivable sin -- rejecting the orthodox civil rights view of blacks as victims. snip Polls have shown that only about 2 percent of blacks view Sharpton as their "leader."

    I did a search and didn't find this posted in the past on FR. I also checked Snopes and found this is TRUE. 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. Mushmouth is what they speak! You can't be a doctor with that...

    Some of the most notorious and dangerous criminals in the United States are part of one gang. It's not the Bloods, it's not the Crips, but a gang called MS-13. 'Live and Direct' takes MSNBC into the streets to investgate how the gang is terrorizing neighborhoods and treating their friends and enemies with brutal, bloody force.

    Time to catch up on some Pop Culture. First, heh, Sir Paul McCartney wrestles with wife Heather, who's busy dancing with one leg and demanding millions from Paul. Also, what's up with America's comic books? Captain Marvel, Captain America…why are they being killed off? Also, Rita Cosby career in peril, Mike Jackson and his Beatles' ownership and some neat blind items.

    Rita Cosby is leaving MSNBC at the end of the month. Her contract was due to expire April 1 and was not going to be renewed, according to sources familiar with the matter. MSNBC cancelled Cosby's 10 p.m. show, Rita Cosby Live and Direct, in June. The network dumped Tucker Carlson's 11 p.m. show then too to make way for documentary programming. At the time, Cosby was named head of a new specials unit, but she has been featured sparingly since. The former Fox News personality gained notoriety for her celebrity pieces, most recently a story on Anna Nicole Smith's...

    March 9, 2007 -- RITA Cosby sounds less raspy following recent vocal-cord surgery, but MSNBC is still going to drop her when her contract expires on April 1. The cable network had no comment, but insiders insist the host, who has been diligently covering the Anna Nicole Smith story, is out. Cosby has been presenting daytime specials since MSNBC canceled her prime-time show, "Live & Direct," last summer.

    Chicago Sun-Times "the Bright One" ^ | December 10, 2006 | MONROE ANDERSON Sun-Times Columnist
    A tamer, more timid Bill Cosby came to town last week. After an 18-month pitched battle with former DePaul University professor Michael Eric Dyson and others who have criticized him for bashing the black poor, the celebrity comedian was more defensive than defiant Wednesday as the featured attraction at the Chicago Public Schools' fourth annual Parent Involvement Conference. "In closing, ladies and gentlemen," the entertainer/educator told the gathering of 7,000 or so, mostly poor parents, in the audience, "I have never given any crowd a whuppin'." True and false. While picking up an award from the NAACP during the celebration...

    Comedian talks tough at LeMoyne-Owen Bill Cosby doesn't sugarcoat his words. The sitcom star, author, comedian and former Jell-O spokesman told a crammed cafeteria at LeMoyne-Owen College Saturday that "the new Ku Klux Klan happens to be us, we're the Ku Klux Klan, and we have not protected our children." He continued: "Children need confidence and if you don't give it to them, how are they going to know that they can do something?" If Cosby's October visit to Memphis aimed to entertain, his most recent jaunt to town intended to inspire inner-city students. He spoke on education and personal...

    I have a profound admiration for Bill Cosby. He and I both aspired to be teachers, and I guess we've each made it, in his own way. He's achieved his goal more spectacularly than I, of course, but we've both encouraged education, served on college boards, written books that require a level of literacy to enjoy, given of our means to establish chairs and scholarship programs at good, highly accredited schools, and found ways to use our status and platforms as entertainers to promote high standards, discipline and morality. I consider Bill a first rate professor. He has a bundle...

    Actor and comedian Bill Cosby spoke at a rally in Newark this afternoon and urged the federal government to spend more money on healthcare for veterans. Cosby, a Navy veteran, told a group of about 100 veterans that they had the power to be heard in Washington. "You may be in a wheelchair, you may have lost fingers, but you are strong," Cosby said. "There is no reason to cut back on anything involving you...you didn't cut back when you were over there because you knew there'd be bullets coming from all over the place at you." Cosby, who flew...
