Another curiosity post, please don't think I'm disrespecting I would really just like to hear what different people say about this issue, if it's already been done I missed it the first time sorry! Just like in other posts, I wish I could take an eraser to the last line of that first pic, but it comes as a whole, sorry....

Where I'm coming from....I am republican and white, and I've been watching the bashing of black republicans for a while and it really confuses me as to why they would be bashed like they seem to be. Maybe since I often watch Fox I'm getting a skewed view, as I'm sure some of you will agree to, lol.


There's been debates for whether Bill Cosby should be included in this post. I think he should, even though he's not republican. I like him, because he'll tell off both sides, whether black or white. He's come under a lot of pressure for speaking his mind.

Well Bill Cosby gets bashed quite a bit when he tells the truth as he sees it.

I think it's generally unfair that certain groups are assumed to be of a particular political persuasion. The most valued aspect of living in these United States is that we have the freedom to make our own choices. Why should we be surprised that a woman is a Repbulican, or a Hispanic is a Socialist? It is our civic duty to put in office those who support our ideals, and make valuable compromises when those who are in office do not support our ideals.

Yes he does. I kinda wish his picture was up there with the others, but I'm guessing he's not republican and that's why he's not? However, he does get bashed a lot for speaking his mind. No problems with adding him to the list, lol.

Bill Cosby is a comedian, a celebrity, an educator. He is in no way involved in politics, nor does he wish to be. A lot of other celebrities could take a page from him.

It just goes to show how ignorant people are if they make all those assumptions about black people being conservative.

But he does make speeches and statements about how to live your life that most on here would call, if not conservative, determingly non-Democrat

I don't know Dr. Cosby personally, but it always seemed to me that he was making social commentary, not meant to be used for political purposes. Anyone, regardless of skin color, religion, or sexual preference, can be a social conservative. I do not know for sure that he has ever supported any political candidate, and I'd actually be disappointed if he did.
