    I saw this comment by Bill Cosby on another forum some weeks ago. It did indeed stimulate some lively discussion, both pro and con.

    What do you folks think about his comment here?

    I'm from his generation, and probably own just about every comedy LP he ever released back in the 60's and 70's. This guy could make people laugh with out resorted to the "F" words etc......that I see as ignoramus crutches of the typical, modern day standup comedian.

    Also, Cosby endured a heart wrenching time some years ago, when his son was murdered on the side of a Southern California freeway.

    Anyway, please read what he said here.

    Does it make sense to any of you, or is he way off?

    The only thing you'll get here is, "Hooray for affirmative action"....Too many blacks in prison, it must be discrimination...and its ALL whitey's fault....
    We're packed with dim libs and the blame America first crowd.....even the weather is our fault....:confused:

    Actually, I think you're probably one of the worst dim bulb's on here....

    There is some merit to what he says. But...it's an inter-family thing and that should be sorted out among them, I'd think.

    He's right I think (not that I'm trying to pronounce on anyone's culture, just using a bit of common sense). But I think the behaviours he is describing are typical of a sub-community that's in total rejection of the mainstream culture's values.

    If this thread can discuss this without getting derailed by irrelevant remarks it will be very interesting I think.

    Ummm ... dude ... Cosby took some serious heat from black activists for making comments against affirmative action.

    Wanna try again?

    Yeah, he did.....whats your point?
    As a matter of fact, Cosby took heat for everything he said in the above post....
    I saw him do this little monolog when it first happened...and remember the bs he got from Sharpton and Jesse.....they couldn't put up the truth of it...and it is the truth.....

    I just pointed out that what Mr. Eightball would get on this site from the Dim Libs that routinely blame white America for almost everything bad under the sun....including the weather:lol:

    The sad part is Bill Cosby could talk till he was blue in the face and it would'nt matter... We are talking about animals here...

    Reffering to other humans as animals is stupid. It could possibly be justified in very limited specific cases of proven actions by individuals, it is totally uncalled for in reference to an entire race.

    There is of course several words to describe people that make these statements.

    Spare me your bleeding heart bullshit please!

    I deal with these ANIMALS everyday...

    Maybe if you left the plantation down there in Hickville N.C. and went to the big city you might understand...
