    Bill Cosby lectured black residents of New Orleans over the weekend, saying their community was "wounded" by crime even before Hurricane Katrina ravaged the city and killed their neighbors.

    "It's painful, but we can't cleanse ourselves unless we look at the wound," Cosby told the rally of about 2,000 people at the city's convention center, where thousands of Katrina evacuees had gathered seven months earlier.
    "Ladies and gentlemen, you had the highest murder rate, unto each other. You were dealing drugs to each other. You were impregnating our 13-, 12-, 11-year-old children," he said, in quotes picked up by Reuters. "What kind of a village is that?"

    Cosby is a man amongst men when it comes to speaking the truth to his people. Unfortunately we seem to be getting nowhere with African Americans valuing family and education which are the basis of a succesful life. It's a shame but with so many born to single mothers it's tough to get a good start (not that single mothers can't provide a strong foundation but it's a LOT harder).

    Bill Cosby On Katrina,
    Main Stream "Cute Perky Katie Media" didn't much care for what Cosby had to say, if you are a "Loopey Liberal" you won't want to hear it anyway, but if you should I would suggest you go to Fox News tonight, I doubt you will hear much more about it on CBS or CNN.

    I'm pretty convinced Bill Cosby actually thinks he's Dr. Huxtable.

    Seriously, don't you find "Dr. Cosby" a bit of a blowhard? He's so full of himself. That said, the concern for the black community by some of the posters on this board is truly heartwarming.

    A person tends to sound like a blowhard when he has to say the same thing over and over because it's the truth.

    I forgot, only liberals can express concern for people of color and wish them success in life. My bad.

    I do think some liberals have that attitude. Some liberals think because they intellectually support equality for minorities that they are incapable of being racist, which is bogus.

    I like what Bill C. has to say on most things. I appreciate his efforts to fight what some may perceive as an uphill battle.

    Liberals are generally colorblind, and have concern for the poor and the urban poor, who often happen to be black. We're not colorblind, of course, when it comes to issues such as discrimination and prejudice.

    An intellectual, theoretical persuit of equality doesn't translate into how someone acts or feels in a personal situation. Having (happily) grown up in a very liberal MA town, I know all too many people who politically believe in racial equality. They say all the right things, vote for the right candidates, and even contribute to the right charities. But they'd die if their daughter ever dated a black man.

    Don't forget the women he's allegedly fondled over the years...

    Could be BS, but 10 or so have come forward.

    Unless of course those people happen to be white red neck, cracker christians who obey the law, work their rectums off, pay their bills, fly their flag, don't look for handouts, don't riot and steal TV's, and drive pick up trucks with a gun rack in the rear window.

    That was funny!
    I think what he said is correct, but lets not get carried away with calling him a humanitarian. The guy has some skeletons in his closet. He's made great strides for black people in what he has accomplished in his career. But I'd hesitate to call him a role model. I remember watching a Dallas Cowboy game, and the camera panned Jerry Jones' skybox (Jerry is also a pig) and there was the Coz, with a babe sitting on his lap. So, when Coz speaks out about morals and ethics one needs to consider the source.

    SO (The Women)
    Clinton Good
    Cosby Bad

    I thought the Liberal Democrats loved those unfaithful wife cheaters.

    Get over it, it was only a blow job, if his wife don't care why should we, it was only sex. :singing:

    How many times have we heard all that sh!t from the "Neo Dems", now the Liberal Panderers are going bring up Cosby's (cheating) because he "TOLD IT LIKE IT IS"
