Bill Cosby says he is NOT African American...interesting read....

Posted by   + Show Post
This is actually word for word what he said to a gathering of students who asked about the bailout in America Great response...

'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,?

Where he work,?

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.

People marched and were hit in the face with rocks to get an Education, and now we've got these knuckleheads walking around.

The 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 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 putting their clothes on backward:?

Isn't that a sign of something gone wrong?

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?

What part of Africa did this come from?

We are not Africans. Those people are not Africans; they don't know a thing about Africa.

I say this all of the time. It would be like white people saying they are European-American. That is totally stupid.

I was born here, and so were my parents and grand parents and, very likely my great grandparents. I don't have any connection to Africa, no more than white Americans have to Germany, Scotland, England, Ireland, or the Netherlands?. The same applies to 99 percent of all the black Americans as regards to Africa.

So stop, already! ! !

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.'

Dr. William Henry 'Bill' Cosby, Jr., Ed.D.

How would you know she lying?

Quoting Anonymous:

So you've had 21 generations of your family In America? Liar. But good try.




Quoting Anonymous:

My ancestors from the islands are not from Africa, but it's good to know that a stranger on the Internet knows my heritage. I myself as well
As my families past 21 generations are American born and bred. If you trace further than that it will take you to the islands. NOT Africa.

And where do you think they come from?









Quoting Anonymous:

I'm black. I'm not African American. I also have absolutely zero roots to Africa. My ancestors are from the islands.

LOL I was thinking the same thing. Her ancestors in the islands come from Africa. I think she missed the point BC was making.

My daughter asked me the other day if she was black or white. She's bi-racial and is raised in a Caucasian home. I told her that she is an American and may define herself however she sees fit. She's not a color, she is a human being, an individual who can think for herself and make choices based off of what she believes to be right. She is educated and at the top of her class. It is wrong to group people into a color and I hope parents will start to teach their children that it's not about the color of persons skin. People act the way they choose to, anyone can break the mold.

Barking about how people need to stop prejudice is just white noise falling on def ears. What would be more beneficial is educating the uneducated that Bc is speaking about. I'm not prejudice of someones skin color but rather their mentality. People get those confused.

Tell it ZsMommy!!!  Like Black People are the only ones with crazy ass names and talk/do foolishness! Bill Cosby speaks for no one but himself. He's coming off a little Uncle Ruckus-ish to me with his sweeping comments about Blacks..........


Quoting ZsMommy:

high fiveclappingI don't care what skin color-this applies to everyone.  Tell it like it is Bill!!! AMEN!!!!
