IS BILL COSBY AN UNCLE TOM???




Cosby lashed out at poor blacks over issues ranging from teenage pregnancy to education, stating that, "Lower economic people [are] not holding up their end in this deal. These people are not parenting. They are buying things for kids ? $500 sneakers for what? And won't spend $200 for 'Hooked on Phonics' ". Cosby accused poor blacks of not being able to speak English and dropping out of High School at a 50% rate .....

No Bill Cosby is not a uncle tom. I know some people got offended by his comments but a lot of blacks do need to pay attention to what he said. All he is doing is trying to help, but thats the problem with a lot of black people (a lot not all), they complain about thier situations but then when someone comes along and tries to give them advice on changing and improving their situation they don't want to hear what is said. If you not going to listen and make an attempt to change, then you shouldn't complain.

bullshyt

if he wanted poor blacks to hear it, he would have given his speech in Barry Farms,Ttrinidad, Woodland, Kentland, sursum Corda, Benning heights, etc....

when he came to DC, he gave a speech at UDC tothe media and rich people.

how the fyck is that "trying to help"?

because if he had, he would see nobody has chains or ice or 500 dollars sneakers, niggas sleep on the sidewalk and at the bus stop.

he can take that bullshyt and sell it to the rest of the fake azz black people pretending to care.

No, he's not an uncle tom just cautious to whom he gives his money away too. Sounds like a business man to me.

I would call his speeches counterproductive. If he really wanted to help instead of verbally bashing the negative aspects of poor Black america he would get into those hoods and DO something, CONTRIBUTE something other than negative speeches (and not necessarily money). I do not deny the truth is some of what he's speaking, but it's better to contribute to the SOLUTION than to antagonize the problem by attacking it publically.

what he is talking about is not the truth, its the MTV and BET truth.

@FBJ27 what I mean by trying to help is he is trying to open some eyes that need to be opened in the black community

I'm fine with eye opening, but he should teal th actual truth, not the truth he heard about.

a few people have Rims and sneakers, but most people have nothing, if anybody is guilty of living excessive its the black middle class, not the black poor.

he can easily find the real tuth out, take his Limo the same way George bush takes his, then we can kill this 500 dollar shoe nonsense.

sad to say but the coz is right. look some young dudes cant even speak when they are trying to get a job. they always have to use street talk. look there is a time and place to speak what ever you want around your boys.but saying U KNOW WHAT IM SAYING 1000 TIMES when your trying to get a job,is just dumb.not all young blacks,but most need help.so i argee with bill.
