Well said, Bill

I've often made the point that honest and intelligent blacks can themsleves be the most effective exploders of black victimhood. Here's Bill Cosby on the subject:

'They're standing on the corner and they can't speak English. I can't even talk the way these people talk:

Why you ain't?

Where you is?

What he drive?

Where he stay?

Who you be?

And I blamed the kid until I heard the mother talk. And then I heard the father talk. Everybody knows it's important to speak English except these knuckleheads. You can't be a doctor with that kind of crap coming out of your mouth. In fact you will never get any kind of job making a decent living.

These people are not parenting. They are buying things for kids. $500 sneakers for what? And they won't spend $200 for Hooked on Phonics. I am talking about these 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? Where were you when he was 18 and how come you didn't know that he had a pistol?

And where is the father? Or who is his father? People with their hats on backward, pants down around the crack, isn't that a sign of something? Isn't it a sign of something when she has her dress all the way up and got all type of needles [piercing] going through her body?

With names like Shaniqua, Taliqua and Mohammed and all of that crap .......... and all of them are in jail. Brown or black versus the Board of Education is no longer the white person's problem. We have got to take the neighborhood back. People used to be ashamed. Today a woman has eight children with eight different 'husbands' -- or men or whatever you call them now.

We have millionaire football players who cannot read. We have million-dollar basketball players who can't write two paragraphs. We, as black folks have to do a better job. Someone working at Wal-Mart with seven kids, you are hurting us. We have to start holding each other to a higher standard.

We cannot blame the white people any longer.'

Thanks Bill - couldn't say it any better myself.

We have to start holding each other to a higher standard.

Yeah, but how do you do it, Bill? That's not something that needs to be answered now, and your solution need not be mine.

We cannot blame the white people any longer.

Whites once held black folk to a higher standard. So if you share white values, maybe you can blame whites.

We been goofin' off for 50 years. Especially in America, whites living today didn't ask for the burden, but it is ours. That we have put the burden down is the cause of your people's degradation and a symptom of ours.

But there's no particular reason why one must share white values. I, too, am tired of the burden, and would be content if white and black America just went their separate ways. There is no urge to empire in this American of Irish descent.

But I do like to fight, and these are my terms Bill: Live among your own, or among whites while accepting white rule.

Yeah, that was about right, except for one thing: in the portion you quoted there was nothing about the Black Church.

Too bad, because that's a speech in and of itself. Elders in their churches used to keep the young ones in line and well behaved. Now that's all gone of course, and instead their "elders" like Al & Jesse make a living stepping over the line.

Exhibit A: The Gates Affair

amen to that Kulak, Problem is, blacks will ALWAYS want to be where whites are because that's where the goodies are. They cannot provide these things for themselves. Thats the problem in South Africa.
