brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrak! First bitches!
These are the most WHITE black folks I ever seen…….
Oprah is do disconnected to what is really going on in the black community its not even funny……and I aint even black!..hahaha
there was a time, both of them was considering buying NBC. thats alot of paper.
cuz theyre educated and speak proper english, that makes then ‘white’? hahaa
They are examples of how black people need to let go of ignorant shit and rise above the white people’s perception of us.
aint no one care as much about the black people as my niggas bill cosby. u cant hate and call im white cus he jus lookin out for us black folk, trynna educate and betta us as a whole. i c what he doin, but imma keep it gangsta, too old to change ya dig? but imma raise my kids right.
Why are they the whitest black people you have ever seen. Not all white people talk correctly. Actually what you said is an insult, truth be told. Everything they said is correct. They do know what is going on, they have lived there, but there support system was stronger, that what some of these kids have today. Try finding your way inthis wrld when your mother and father sister cousin is cracked out.
Bill makes some very valid points when he speaks but people just don’t relate to it because he’s comes at the subject so direct. Alot of people feel like he’s talking directly to them and they get offended which is exactly what he wanted to do. Not to make people upset but to make them say DAMN that’s how I look to everyone, let me try to make a change within myself. But people don’t do that they try to justify their bad qualities …… Not saying Bills right about everything but some of our people really need to take a look at themselves, because everyone else is watching ……
fuk both these muthafukas as a man i hate oprah lol and as a human i cant stand bill cosby lol …….u cant say filth flarn filth lol
o n cosighn 6 they r white as hell my brother just said it as i told hiom bout the post then ui read ur comment u said the exact same thing
damn I really hate Bill Cosby more ignorant statements. I expect more from him. He lost touch shit is not like the Cosby show
I co-sign with BlackIce. plus ppl are underestimating the domino-effect of certain things. that goes for every color of skin. the whole hip-hop lifestyle many wanna live just adds another domino that falls over and gives some ppl that don’t really care much about their lives and other ppl’s life a f’ed up direction their heading into..
so yeah I’ve learned and know it better nowadays- my name is on the “when-keepin-it-real-goes-wrong-list” too..
I agree we as Black people have to change the direction we are going in. However, none of us are perfect, so instead of juding these people, find out what you can do to help them. Every child is not meant to go off to school, so does that make that childs life a less worthy then a kid who did go away to school. Gangster rap is a excuse used by so many. The NRA was out long before gangster rap, The “N” word was out long before Hip-Hop. It’s eazy to sit back and judge, I mean they both are billionaires, but Bill forgets he hasnt lead a perfect life either (cheating on his wife, sevral times). Oprah is not what, I want my daughter to grow up and be like, why is it ALL successful Blackwomen are single? And before you say it, not ALL Blackmen are bad, so look in the mirror and realize, we as Blackmen dont want you walking behind us, nor in front of us, walk beside me. Lets stop fighting each other and love one another, like our grandparents loved us!! God said no one sin out weighs the other, so next time you want to throw rocks, remember you live ina Glass House yourself!!
Yanks Stay shitin on Bammas from the south.
We have substituded education for the quick buck. Not understanding that during the entire “hood process” that is a learning experience. Learn the value of life and gain the testimony to overcome adverstity. We were never created to glorify the situation in which we lived.
However we glorify ignorace (slang), pimps, ho’s, drug dealers, and black on black crime (robbing and stealing from one another).
Some how we learned to down grade individuals that do the right things. We call going to school and getting an education (square), not participating in juvenile behavoir (Lame), using proper english (talking white).
We have taken the very things that were used to oppress us, and embraced them as if they were apart of our make-up.
It time to change! That’s what Bill and Oparh are talking about. PS: This problem is bigger than hip hop.
Wheres Bill Cosby when he doesnt have a book to sell??
And What Oprah and Bill Cosby people who havent been finanacially unstable in years fail to realize is that It isnt glorification its more of rejoice (when it comes to the rap argument)
Your mother makes close to nothing and cant put nothing on the table and pops is not around, why would you think a child would believe that school is important?? Money will always be the motivation when it comes to that situation. Not saying that im defending all rap because majority is way past ignorant, but everybody does not have the same opportunities in this world. Especially considering in this world when you need money to make money.
Lights off in the crib you got to do something to keep them on, homework is only a priority for those that can maintain and keep up with it.
And I watched that whole show and nothing was said by Bill Cosby or that corny ass professor about what they were doing to make a change. Only thing Bill Cosby is doing is talking down about it and going around giving speeches to people who have excellent household structure.
Drugs is killing our community everyday, single family households is killing our community everyday…But lets not forget a Rap record didnt get drugs across…A Rap record aint producing babies….A Rap record is just giving a vivid description of realities….And Bill Cosby did say one true thing…”Our children are telling us something and we must listen to what they are saying”….
So true, so how about you break down rap correctly and come at an angle of trying to fix it instead of surrounding yourself around people who want to do nothing but make profit off of telling us what we as black people are doing wrong…..What Programs you have Bill??…How many sports teams you have in the hood for kids that want to play sports but family cant afford to buy sneakers and put them trhu camps and things like that??…What positive concerts do you have for people to come together and listen to beautiful music??….
You dont have none of that homey, but you definitely on Oprah and got a book….SMH…..
cant even be bothered with oprah, she hates BLACKMEN but bill cosby is right ‘wake up you dumb niggas, and hiphop yes hiphop has to take a good share of the blame ‘ turns women into hoes/gold diggers and men into gangsters/slackers.
but i bet oprah the black man hater, didnt mention about black women being a course of this problem by wanting the badboy and who got the most cash not the guy who is getting his education on with manners and etc.
men want the women, and how to attract them is stated above its one dumb cycle but hiphop and women take the blame. im a black man i cant get jobs easy got to earn cash because sh*t even tho im finer than a sunday afternoon, to get that ouchie you need guap.
cycle begin, how u get guap ?
Everything Cosby and Oprah said on this show was on point. What could u disagree with?
They both speaking so much truth, respect.
Good sisters out there need to understand that bettering yourself and having a good job is half the journey. This is because choosing to have kids with the wrong guy (good for nothing knucklehead) can quickly undo all your lifelong hard work. Choose a like minded guy so you can have like minded kids.
theres a deeper reason the source,some an make a choice some just cant cuz their no options!!!
#15 has many valid points, but one thing I can say is, Mr. Cosby does not need to write books or give speeches. Financially he is great. He doing all this from the heart. Instead of donating, which I’m sure he donated more then we will make in a lifetime. He is taking it on his own and telling us parents, or parents to be to shape it up.
In other words, Mr. Cosby speaks the truth. My son is two, and i’m taking everything he said to heart.
Its controversial becuz its the truth. People are afraid of the truth, so thats why they are offended, they kno its truth.
Cosby does speak the truth but he is at the age where he does not know how to facilitate the information anymore. He comes across like he talking down to people. Black people in the hood dont want to be spoken to like we are all uneducated and dont know how to take care of our children, even if its true.
He just needs to try and figure out another angle to take. ALso I agree with the person who said the comment about his book. Its not like he is donating the proceeds of his book.
i think he should stop tripin on this music…..
Fuck Oprah she is a disgrace she aint black she is a white person in a black person body, she allows rapists on her show but she disrespected Luda & Ice Cube on here show. Would Bill Cosby even be on her show if he wasn’t promoting somethink get the fuck out of here if you think he would.You can’t always use Hiphop as a scapegoat everyone has to take responsbility you think everyone is gonna listen to a hiphop album and start killing niggas unless their braindead and messed in the head. Society is to blame drugs are killing society drugs & guns and the system. Pretty females don’t wanna good guys they are attracted to the bad guy he treats a girl like shit but has the bling. Corpate American needs to wake up and starting blaming the Hiphop community.
how can you people think he is misrepresenting black people when comments like this are left on this board:
“fuk both these muthafukas as a man i hate oprah lol and as a human i cant stand bill cosby lol …….u cant say filth flarn filth lol”
i feel the video and understand what they are saying.
im sorry but i don’t agreee with cosby..
They use hip-hop as an excuse to go at black ppl..
han han…han..hann,well ok ,Mr.Cosby,Ms winfrey with all due respect all i can say is F.U.C.K Y.O.U!!the pleasure is mine youre welcome!!ya ill be happy to put my feet up your ass
hip hop is already dead
so why bash it even more?..
@ #5 (datnigga) Thats the point… raise ya kids better!
Thats all responsible folks ask for. We had decent child hoods in general back in the 70’s -80’s even in the madness but now almost every 10-17 yr old has to fend for themselve and they can’t simply enjoy life like a lot of us did?
@ #6&7 (kesha,Black ice) Exactly!
@ #12 (Marq) Point well stated… once people stop defending their short comings then maybe thay can address that wrinkle!
@ # 14 (Greg) STANDING OVATION!
@ #15 (Drizzle) I hear you but, you put too much value in money. The younger people need to have values and morals instilled in theim so they can all work together. If black people maintained and supported black businesses we would be in a better state but were too busy saying we can do better than the next black man but never thinking we can do better than most white folks.
2 Cents its not too much value put on money…….and obviously you are in a state where money is not hard to come by. I mean lets be serious Majority of people do not go to school and college to get an education…People go thru that process so they can one day be in a good position to MAKE GOOD MONEY!!….Not sure how old you are but how information do you remember from High School??…And if Money wasnt a main priority we wouldnt as a society being paying thousands of dollars to receive an education…..This whole world is Money driven…And supporting black owned business has nothing to do with the discussion at hand…I thought the topic was on the lack of education in poor communities and the lack of parenting…..With all due respect your comment on supporting black companies is whats wrong with us today….We need to stop trying to just support our race and put ourselves in better places to compete WITH ALL RACES!!…And going on Oprah and selling a book talking down to us is not going to do that at all it starts by going to the problem and fixing it…..You go fix the problem then you go on Oprah and discuss and create awareness….And anybody who thinks Bill Cosby is doing this because he feels this in his heart you are sadly mistaken…..For example how many times have you seen him on TV discussing this??…It isnt like he cant be on television….
I totally agree with them, someone needs to stop the ignorance in our community, we are just helping the haters keep us down.
what i really dislike about cosby and oprah is..instead of getting to know hip-hop all they do is bash it because they think that because of how educated and succesfull they are they think that they are bettter than hip-hop.
im starting to dislike this blog site..because everytime i look at this site this reminds u of how ppl are attacking hip-hop aand how there are “resuls” showing how dangerous or less intelligient us black ppl are
YO i hope u guys read my commment cus u know it’s true.
this site just posts alot of stupid shit now
@ 3 (drizzle) I said I heard you, meaning I agree BUT, YOU put too much value in monety (not sure if it was “the topic” or not but YOu brought it into the fold.
Supporting OUR OWN and competeing WITH OTHERS are VERY different! and we could do both at one time.
P.s. 30+ and grew up in one of the poorest cities in the country in my youth.
@ #34 (yuu Serious) maybe they jus see hip hop in the same eyes a lot of 30-50 year olds see “lean wit it rock wit it”, and “superman”.
NUMBER 12 YOU HAVE TOUCH MY HEART AND SPOKE OR TYPE THE TRUTH.
OH MY GOSH (MOST) OF YALL ARE SPEAKEN THE TRUTH.AND AINT LYIN.
We are a people of obvious illusions. WE know exactly what the plan is yet we defend and support all thats wrong with our people! A majority of Black people ( in the hood) are on automatic, there is no longer a need for “THE MAN” to worry any more becuase we do the job for them. Generation of people in every hood done stood on the same blocks and got killed, or arrested and another nigga takes their place as if the outcome is the same. A nigga will say bill and oprah ain’t give us jobs or money, and thats the problem niggas want to be given something! Who in the hell gave oprah her money or bill his? Or any succesfull person in this world? we know for a fact its harder for felons to get a good job.
SO NIGGAS BECOME FELONS. We know for a fact that drugs are put in our communities. SO NIGGAS SAY “I DON’T WANNA WORK FOR THE WHITE MAN” AND BECOME DRUG DEALERS, GET BUSTED AND PAY WHITE LAWYERS, JUDGES LAW ENFORCEMENT, just like our fahter, uncle , brother, homey did and the results where the same dead or in jail. let be real. If you live in the projects ( they just openly call it a project) or poor its because some body didnt do what they needed to do before, and when you got here! Niggas will say they will die for thier hood, block, niggas etc, but won’t live for thier kids. WE HAVE A PROBLEM PEOPLE! AND WE ENDORSE IT!
Bottom line is Bill Cosby HIT THE NAIL ON THE HEAD with his recent statements. Black people just don’t want to man/woman up to the problems. They KNOW that racist white America provides the tools for us to be ignorant, uneducated, and underachievers. A black person thinks working a City Job (an official city job – like trash collector or administrative assistant) is MAKING IT because they make $15-20+ an hour plus full benefits. If a white or Asian called that making it, they’d be disowned by their families. They listen to IGNORANT hip hop and embrace a culture that has the grown men acting like little boys/thugs and the women as sluts, sexual objects, “baby moms” and whores. Jail is a mark of manhood in many cases in the community. It’s just a sad state of affairs, and nobody wants to admit it. If you know what the problem is, there’s no one to blame but yourself. We live in an information age and instead of looking up the struggles of the Black person throughout history AND PRESENTLY, many look up Beyonce and Jay-Z’s marriage. And while the argument is “White people do it to” regarding whatever blacks are being accused of, the counter to that is WHITE PEOPLE CAN AFFORD TO DO WHATEVER THEY WANT at this state in time – Blacks can’t at present. A successful structure of responsibility must be built first before we start PLAYING.
