I noticed an lot of coverage regarding Bill Cosby’s comments regarding the problems many African Americans face today. He is pointing a lot of blame on the parents for being irresponsible, and the children for perpetuating some of the problems he sees African American face. Here is one of his most recent comments from his speech at the Rainbow/PUSH convention:
“Let me tell you something,” Cosby, one of America’s most admired men, told the group. “Your dirty laundry gets out of school at 2:30 every day, it’s cursing and calling each other [the N-word] as they’re walking up and down the street. They think they’re hip. They can’t read. They can’t write. They’re laughing and giggling, and they’re going nowhere.”
He seems to have caused outrage between sections of African American leaders. Here are the recent articles (Google tracked) relating to Bill Cosby and his remarks: http://news.google.com/news?hl=en&edition=us&ie=ascii&q=cosby
So what do you all think?
