Bill Cosby Speaks on the State of African-Americans

Is Bill Cosby Right About the African-American Community?

Bill Cosby was in Ohio last night speaking in front of 2,000 people at the Mt. Zion Baptist Church of Oakwood Village. The 70-year-old comedian has raised hackles recently by referring to detrimental issues in the African-American community as "dirty laundry." Last night his speech had a decidedly more religious overtone.

Addressing personal responsibility, Cosby said, "Jesus never said, 'Sit down! I shall go forth and do it for ye!'" Adding, "Where did we go wrong? And they keep pointing to civil rights. We didn't lose it in civil rights! We won!"

Do you find Cosby's current message shocking? Is he an appropriate messenger? Do you think he's unfairly generalizing about a population? Is he right?
