Cosby's misinformation on the black community cause a natioin contriversy.His comments showed leadership,unity, detication, and hope for the black
communtity. The bold and powerful bill cosby spoke reality and not illusions, which caused a major downfall and struggle for black people. Speaking
the truth caused shame and truth cannot be accepted by blacks. The reality cosby put us in caused us to neglect the turth and deny his comments.
Most of cosbys speech explain parental roles for childern" These people are not parenting they are buying things for kids-- $500 sneaker for
what?".The black community has been fearful of going public with the problems within their community for the fear of stereotype. unfortunately years
of neglect of parents caused generations of poor urban children. the reality is trying to undo the it is damage of parental neglect childern recieve.
Cosby's main approach on the black community is to reach and aware parents of the problems they face and wish to neglect.
Society leadership for black's jeopardizes there future in succeeding in our world. Black peoplehas become ignorant and selfish in their own
communities. "leaders" such as these rap artists ain't doing a damn thing to help out their people. I believe black people have forgotten how to be
a people. now, they just focus on being black. But this black isn't what africa is all about . the "oh im ghetto and i like it nigga" makes no
damn sense to me. rappers have made it so that being ghetto and being thug is a good and positive thing when it is not. black kids all over north
america are try to act black because they are black. but the thing is, being black has nothing to do with being ghetto. but the music industry has
brainwashed people into thinking that if ur ghetto, u either are black or ur acting black. I believe black people in general need to have leaders
such as bill cosby who speak the truth. Don't bring a wise man down just because he is sayin the truth, bring the Articles and news reports down for
using cosby's words against us.
Cosby was speaking against ignorance,lack of discipline, the lack of goals and hip-hoppish thuggery. the articles we read feed the reader mind with
characteristic of the "black community." Africans should be more angry of racist news paper comments characterization than anything Bill Cosby
said. I say this because many people are disagree with bill cosbys due to the fact they read a good agrument disapproving his commments. but to
really understand were he is coming from one needs to listen or read the full speech to gain your own opinion. the persusive article allowed me to
realize the only negative comments and opinons of the writer. the misintropited comments has changed into a negative approach on poor black people.
cosby's words has bein misued by the writer to convey a strong powerful opinion of his own. CNN comments "Bill Cosby went off on another tirade
against the black community Thursday," . The comment expressed with racism and a compelety opposite meaning of Cosby's appraoch. It is this
comments which Black people should be upset from, not the truth Bill Cosby said.
All postive black leader have one goal in common. That is to help their people. but today, the black community has no leaders. besides bill cosby, I
dont see any other black leader doing anything to help his or her people. Without leaders, the igorant and selfish crowds will follow the
chacterisitics if their leader which i believe will bring them in a bigger hole of shame. If something or someone does not do something soon, the
black community will find themselves in a major crisis of survival. the black community needs leadership, unity, perservence, and hope. the hope i
believe in the black communities was lost long ago, but the strength of the soul and mind can cause you to make a difference. One man has taken the
odds of a negative words to change peoples lifestyles. No effect has bein made but that strength of leadership caused him to speak the truth which
was denied for many years. It will take more than time for the black community to understand his comments, just like how long it for someone to speak
out on the lack discipline. Bill Cosby is a very brave man, The black community should be thankful for his leadership.
