    If only there were more Bill Cosbys in the world, and fewer Jesse Jacksons and Al Sharptons.

    how about ALL Cosbys, and NO Sharptons or Jacksons (both Jesse and Micheal!)

    Hell, I wish there were more kids like those two.... working their asses off to get ahead instead of waiting for the GOVAMINT to give them a job or handout! God bless Bill for recognizing their hard work!

    I agree!

    I was thrilled for the two, and pleased for Bill.

    -In that order.

    What do you think the reaction would be if a white guy had done the exact same thing for just white kids?

    Nothing as long as he doesn't "advertise" it. A lot of wealthy white men help out less fortunate white kids. They just don't seek the publicity because of exactly what you are alluding.

    Thumbs up to Cosby.

    And a salute to two tenacious kids who refused to take a dive.

    It wouldn't have had the same significance, since it no doubt wouldn't have been for the same reasons.
