Attacking Non-UH liberalism 'The USA Today on Bill Cosby' (Places Black communities faults not on Whites, but Blacks)

I respect Bill Cosby. He spanks the Black community in his speeches to wake them up. He says what needs to be said, and speaks frankly like very few other Black speakers.

Besides J.C. Watts, and a very select few other Black men in America, Cosby is one of the most common sense Black men in the United States.

USA Today noted some of his excerpts from his May 17, 2004, speech at the NAACP gala commemorating the 50th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education today.

On poor people:

"The lower economic and lower middle economic people are not holding their end in this deal. In the neighborhood that most of us grew up in, parenting is not going on. ... I'm talking about 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? And where were you when he was 18, and how come you don't know he had a pistol?"

On illiteracy:

"Brown v. Board of Education is no longer the white person's problem. We've got to take the neighborhood back. We've got to go in there. Just forget telling your child to go to the Peace Corps. It's right around the corner. It can't speak English. It doesn't want to speak English. I can't even talk the way these people talk. "Why you ain't where you is go, ra." ... Everybody knows how important it is to speak English except these knuckleheads. You can't land a plane with 'Why you ain't ...' You can't be a doctor with that kind of crap coming out of your mouth."

On who's to blame:

"We cannot blame white people. White people don't live over there. ... It's not what they're doing to us. It's what we are not doing. Fifty percent dropout. Look, we're raising our own ingrown immigrants. These people are fighting hard to be ignorant. ... They're angry and they have pistols and they shoot and they do stupid things."

On black women:

"Five and six different children - same woman, eight, 10 different husbands or whatever. Pretty soon you're going to have to have DNA cards so you can tell who you're making love to."

On teen sex:

"What is it with young girls getting after some girl who wants to still remain a virgin? Who are these sick black people and where did they come from? And why haven't they been parented to shut up? ...This is a sickness, ladies and gentlemen, and we are not paying attention to these children. These are children. They don't know anything. They don't have anything."

On Brown's impact:

"Basketball players - multimillionaires - can't write a paragraph. Football players - multimillionaires - can't read. Yes, multimillionaires. Well, Brown v. Board of Education, where are we today? It's there. They paved the way. What did we do with it? The white man, he's laughing — got to be laughing. Fifty percent dropout rate, rest of them in prison."

On taking responsibility:

"The church is only open on Sunday. And you can't keep asking Jesus to do things for you. You can't keep asking that God will find a way. God is tired of you. God was there when they won all those (court) cases. ... That's where God was, because these people were doing something. ... When you go to church, look at the stained-glass things of Jesus. Look at them. Is Jesus smiling? Not in one picture. ... So tell your friends. Let's try to do something. Let's try to make Jesus smile. Let's start parenting."


Blacks are free people, but it is the Civil Rights leaders that purposely keep successful Blacks like Secretary Rice, Justice Thomas, and Secretary Powell from being seen as role models.

Instead, people who make it to the NBA are seen as role models no matter how much trouble they get in, and whether they are illiterate or not.

Screw the libs!
