Bill Cosby is...trippin? What do you think?

As I do every morning, I went to ajc.com this morning to read the news and I came across this article on Bill Cosby. He is totally going off. At first I was somewhat offended but...he's making a whole lot of damn sense. A LOT!!! Bill Cosby is someone who is highly respected inthe black community and I think that we should all take heed to what he is saying. There are SO MANY kids that I come across that cannot talk. And even more...there are so many freakin' adults that can't even speak correctly. I remember some of my fellow students in college that still had fucked up grammar. Or they can actually speak correctly, but they can't fuckin' write! Now...before I start receiving hate mail...let me say that in my environment, I do come across more intelligent blacks. Blacks with degrees and those without that do not fall into this disenfrachised category in which Bill speaks of. But, there are still so many of us that just can't get it right. And I don't get it. I kinda think it's lazy. In school, grammar and college, we all have the same teachers and similar instruction and what not...but it's all about what you do with it. You know?

So, sorry if anyone is offended but...I think that Mr. Bill Cosby totally has a point. Tell me what you think.

Hey I totally agree with you.....
I always make fun of how I hear the fellas approach women, especially here in the south....
"Shorty whatch yo name i.....s is silent"

Mr Cosby is totally correct what I don't like is how the media is reacting to this.....amazed that 'a black person' could be saying this about other blacks.

But yeah if you heard the speech yourself you have to agree.

What about people who just wanna talk stupid but they actually know that it's wrong? When I talk with my friends.. I use "me thinking", "me hungry" and other stuff stuff like that. Not that this has anything to do with that Cosby is talking about... of course.

i didnt see anything wrong with bill saying what he had to say....i felt like if it didnt apply to you, then you shouldnt get mad at it, because of course we know that all black people dont act the way he was describing us in his comments....he needed to say that because black folks need to get it together....
