Nice post. NOT.
I don't think black people are to blame for societies decline. Blame your generation, the hippies.

And pretty soon after Bill Cosby says this, he'll be under fire by black groups for being an Oreo and a racist. I'd like to commend this man for speaking his mind, instead of following the mob-mentality of monopolizing victimhood.

And I don't think he's blaming Black people for societies decline, I think he's trying to make the point that the ghetto culture of some black communities and black popular culture is responsible for their position, not the racist policies of some shadowy cabal of "white people". The glamourization of the ignorant ghetto culture is what is keeping American blacks back, not racism. The race card has been severely overdrawn.

Bill Cosby: Thank you for saying what white people have been thinking for years. There have been major attempts by white people to "make up for" what happened years before even our grandparents were born.

But, straight out, there are some things you have to do for yourself. No one can go to the doctor for you. That's a good example. Blacks must do some things for themselves.

My remarks were basically sarcastic, except for the part about hippies. I know what Bill Cosby is speaking about, I've read this before.
