I have not blogged in some time on a regular basis. But this is just the type of thing that I started this blog to do...speak on whatever I wanted when it was something that mattered to me. Today I hear that none other than Bill Cosby...whom I LOVE...has decided to take the "racist" track when considering any opposition to the current President. Breitbart reports today that Cosby said this:
"It's also interesting that this Republican Party is not the Republican Party of 1863, of Abraham Lincoln, abolitionists and slavery, is not good. I think it's important for us to look at the underlying part of it. What is the value of it? Is it that some people are angry because my people no longer want to work for free?"
He says, "My people." While I understand what he means, it seems to hold to something that I would think MLK would be against today. His people? Blacks? Intellectuals? Comedians? Fathers? Men? Dare I ask, persons of strong character? Which seems more important in his argument? Now read his earlier remarks in regards to a simple (and as usual, boring) State of the Union address...
"To see people sitting down and then they there are others standing and cheering. I don't think it's difficult [to] believe. I think that we have people sitting there who are as bad as the people who were against any kind of desegregation.”
How The Coz, of all people, can get that from such a typical speech...I don't know? But he does and thus, how does one give ANY opposition without being accused of such? I love Bill Cosby as a father figure as I am sure many do of my generation, as a wonderful and hilarious comedian, and as a very well thought man that from an early age influenced me to do the same. I know he is an older gentleman but I'd hate to say he's getting senile. Perhaps. I think it is just too easy to cry racist to shut down honest argument. Can we give it up already? It's getting very tiresome. For shame Coz! Victor Borgia is not happy with you today (old gaming joke that will only be understood by very few.) That is all.
