Dr. Bill Cosby - "Dont Blame the White Man"

#1
There's a Bill Cosby email doing the rounds. He did actually say this (checked with Snopes.com) - good man for being honest.

'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. 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.

People marched and were hit in the face with rocks to get an Education, and now we've got these knuckleheads walking around.

The lower economic people are not holding up their end in this deal.

These people are not parenting. They are buying things for kids.

$500 sneakers for what? And they won't spend $200 for Hooked on Phonics.

I am talking about these people who cry when their son is standing there in an orange suit.

Where were you when he was 2?

Where were you when he was 12?

Where were you when he was 18 and how come you didn't know that he had a pistol?

And where is the father? Or who is his father?

People putting their clothes on backward: Isn't that a sign of something gone wrong?

People with their hats on backward, pants down around the crack, isn't that a sign of something?

Isn't it a sign of something when she has her dress all the way up and got all type of needles [piercing] going through her body?

What part of Africa did this come from??

We are not Africans. Those people are not Africans; they don't know a thing about Africa .....

I say this all of the time. It would be like white people saying they are European-American. That is totally stupid.

I was born here, and so were my parents and grand parents and, very likely my great grandparents. I don't have any connection to Africa, no more than white Americans have to Germany, Scotland, England, Ireland, or the Netherlands. The same applies to 99 percent of all the black Americans as regards to Africa. So stop, already! ! !

With names like Shaniqua, Taliqua and Mohammed and all of that crap ......... and all of them are in jail.

Brown or black versus the Board of Education is no longer the white person's problem.

We have got to take the neighborhood back.

People used to be ashamed. Today a woman has eight children with eight different 'husbands' -- or men or whatever you call them now.

We have millionaire football players who cannot read.

We have million-dollar basketball players who can't write two paragraphs.
We, as black folks have to do a better job.

Someone working at Wal-Mart with seven kids, you are hurting us.

We have to start holding each other to a higher standard.

We cannot blame the white people any longer.'

Dr. William Henry 'Bill' Cosby, Jr., Ed .D.

In summary - don't care what colour, creed, religion, et al you are, get off your arrse and do something with your lives and stop being a self styled victim who has no idea who or what they are blaming for their own failure.

I thought you had to be white middle class Daily hate readers to subscribe to the point of v........ oh.

You can put a monkey in a suit but its still a monkey, ask the presidents advisers.. The way they talk, act and behave is indicative of the way they think.

Nope. You don't even have to be a middle class Daily Hate reader to subscribe to the view that all black people blame the White Man for everything that goes wrong in their lives. It just helps.

Personally, I'm glad to see a successful black man in the US come out with this. He's entirely right about them all being Americans and not having more than a coincidental connection to where their forbears came from. If they can get the blacks to think like that, maybe there's hope for the Irish!

I wonder what Dr Cosby would say about our very own chav and chavette types that appear day-in, day-out on Jeremy Kyle, who pretend to be the very people he is describing. So much so, they think it's 'kewl' to do so as well.
The very same thing hopefully. Colour optional.

But it suits the US psyche to hang tags on everything. The tripe that they spout about origin and where they 'come from' is IMHO all a melancholy view to hide there own insecurites and prejudices.

I can understand it for the 2nd or 3rd generation Jamican or Pakistani's living in the UK because the memories are still there, and for some fresh, but to assimilate yourself with a culture a century and several generations back is absurd.

I wish someone over here with some credability would publish the same view. The whole 'oppressed' and 'minority' bit is getting very very boring.

Not a hope:
Say it, "I'm black and I'm proud"!

America, the land of the proud and free.

Where even poor people have the right to be obese...

Unfortunately we're catching up with the buggers.

Anyone received that email doing the rounds about African aid (lack of, etc) to Haiti - purporting to be "from a Botswana newspaper"? I'm sure its a chain letter, but so far hasn't appeared on Snopes.

Bill Cosby is pretty much a national institution in the USA, respected by all sectors of society - except, sadly, by a percentage of blacks, who regard him as an 'Uncle Tom'. Same with any educated black American who doesn't speak 'ebonic', works hard, is educated and insists their children do the same... and there are millions.
Unfortunately the 'thug' cult, baggy clothes, 'Gangsta' rap and gratuitous violence is idealised by blacks in the sports and entertainment industry and aped by impressionable youth - including, it seems, white Brit chavs. Not to mention excused by liberals of every stripe. To her credit Michelle Obama is sending out a similar - though diluted - message as Cosby's - pity her husband doesn't do the same.......but then again he'd lose votes!

Correct! Though from my observations they're more apparent...and more numerous in the UK!

you see the same thing with chavs - ignorance worn as a badge of pride, and a huge chip on the shoulder for the world not rolling over and giving them what they want.
