Bill Cosby is the MAN!

Quote:
"I can't even talk the way these people talk, 'Why you ain't,' 'Where you is' ... and I blamed the kid until I heard the mother talk," Cosby said then. "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."

Children's television stars are surprisingly perceptive about such things. I never would have thought that the guy with the magic pen I used to watch in preschool would be saying something like this. Go Cosby!

Here's more text from the speech:

Picture Pages. The pen was called Mortimer Ichabod Marker.

Have you read any of the criticism of the first speech? I agree it needed to be said, by someone who's himself part of that community, but something can be said for his timing having been not so good for the first round.
