We Cannot Blame the White People any Longer

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

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 (piercings) 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....

11. NEWS ABOUT THE ILLEGAL ALIEN INVASION THANKS TO OBAMA

Remember When Democrats Booted Parentless Hispanic Children From the U.S.? "And yet it was (then) Deputy Attorney General Eric Holder who concocted the “legal” cover for the INS to mace, kick, stomp, and gun-butt their way into the home of Elian Gonzalez’s legal custodians (legal U.S. citizens and residents all) on the morning of April 22, 2000, wrench a bawling 6-year-old child from his family at machine-gun point and bundle him off to Castro’s terror-sponsoring fiefdom, leaving 102 people (legal U.S. citizens and residents all) injured, some seriously." http://www.frontpagemag.com/2014...

EXCLUSIVE: TSA Allowing Illegals to Fly Without Verifiable ID, Says Border Patrol Union

"“This is not the CBP [Customs and Border Protection] or another federal agency renting or leasing an aircraft, these are the same planes that the American public uses for domestic travel,” said Garza. “This just adds insult to injury. Not only are we releasing unknown illegal aliens onto American streets, but we are allowing them to travel commercially using paperwork that could easily be reproduced or manipulated on any home computer. The Notice to Appear form has no photo, anyone can make one and manipulate one. They do not have any security features, no watermark, nothing. They are simply printed on standard copy paper based on the information the illegal alien says is the truth.” http://www.breitbart.com/Breitba...

12. Sending pink slips to a war zone

"In a stunning display of callousness, the Defense Department has announced that thousands of soldiers — many serving as commanding officers in Afghanistan — will be notified in the coming weeks that their service to the country is no longer needed.

Last week, more than 1,100 Army captains — the men and women who know best how to fight this enemy because they have experienced multiple deployments — were told they’ll be retired from the Army." http://nypost.com/2014/07/09/sen...

13. WAR ON WOMEN BILL CLINTON STYLE

43 suspected mistresses found in RFK Jr.’s phone. "Kennedy’s late wife, Mary Richardson, shared several lists of suspected “other women” with a friend two months before she committed suicide in May 2012." http://nypost.com/2014/07/13/doz...

14. NEW COSBY SITCOM TO BE CANCELLED AFTER 4 EPISODES

Lanivan

#5. This should be a cakewalk for Elizabeth Warren as the GOP Soap Opera continues and even escalates. ~~~AS THE WORM TURNS~~~

* After 5 long years of bipartisan work on immigration reform that would address the problem of the under-staffing of immigration judges, among others, John Boehner refuses to allow the reform proposal to be brought to the House for discussion and a vote. This during a year-long precipitous increase in children refugees flooding the country from their violence-ridden homelands.

* The GOP instead demands that Obama, by Executive Order, override the Bush Human Trafficking Law that forbids the immediate turning away of the refugee children. They also demand that the National Guard be deployed at the war-torn area where young, half-starved children are crossing the border, as well as sending Gov. Rick Perry and Sean Hannity on a pontoon boat with military-style assault weapons slung over their shoulders to the battle zone, which in addition to being a cool macho photo op, is a grand opportunity to show the kids that any crazy guy can get to be a governor in America.

* Obama asks Congress to appropriate 3.7 billion to help with the humanitarian crisis, and to pass an amendment to the law that would help expedite the processing of these children so some can be deported immediately.

* John Boehner refuses to take any action whatsoever, then sends a letter of Resolution to the House, declaring the GOP intention to sue the president for making Executive Orders, or maybe just for not making ones they like, or perhaps for making far fewer EO's than Bush????

* And political and Constitutional scholar and entertainment director for the Tea Party, Sarah Palin demands that President Obama gets impeached. NOW. It is met with embarrassed silence from the GOP and guffaws of laughter from the Dems. Meanwhile, the checking account balance of SarahPAC inches back up, and Dems become galvanized.
