Personal Responsibility

I�ll end with a comment on a statement from the BC column that struck me. BC claims �Dr. King and Malcolm X and Fred Hampton died in a social struggle to empower Black people. Cosby demonizes these same people, employing the enemy�s language, like some vengeful, spurned benefactor.� No sir, Dr. King, Malcolm, and Fred lived to empower black people. They died because some triflin� fool killed them. And all too many triflin� fools are throwing the legacy of those great men, and great women like Barbara Jordan and Fannie Lou Hamer, away for a dollar and a lousy pair of over priced sneakers made in China. Mr. Cosby is attempting to remind us of that.

Just go read the rest.
