Take care now ......
+1 .... I think Bill is doing the right thing by pointing out the problems as he sees them and hopefully getting a reaction from the people he is talking about..... and personally I think that the people who berate him for speaking out are actually doing more to hurt their own people when they should be backing him and trying to make a difference.paulF3 said:Don't think he is trying to win friends. His words are meant to enrage the exact population he is speaking to. In doing so, it challenges those people. Americans, for the most part, don't back down to challenges they can face. The hispanic population has shown more drive than even the caucasians, I would say, because they don't tend to complain about what raw deal they have been handed, nor do they become complacent. They get out there and bust their ass day in and day out because they intend to accomplish what they have set out to do.
By speaking bluntly, Cosby probably hopes to push his race to do the same thing.
Thats a contradiction of what Jessie has stood for over the past decade.LifeLiberty said:I think jesse was backing Bill. and they are trying to get the black community to stop blaming whites for all their problems.
Actually that's not just a problem with the black community (whatever that is), but with the US in general. If things don't work out the way people want or something bad happens, americans blame others b/c they don't want to accept responsibility for their actions.jtoker13 said:the problem is most of the community seems to want to blame someone else (white people) for their problems.
