    You know, you can lead a horse to water . . . .

    In this context, I guess we all have to wait for them to come to this realization and actually do something about it for themselves. I sure wish they'd hurry up and come to this realization.
    Given the repudiation that Cosby received from seemingly every corner, while making these very observances and calling attention to them, it seems that they've not come to this realization.

    If you have evidence of this or a citation of otherwise, I'd welcome to see / read it, as this means that we all are one step closer to a solution and / or the issue being address, all the better for all of us, I'd say.

    You bring up a interesting point about Bill Cosby ...he dared tell blacks some things they needed to hear....the liberal media considered that 'talking down to blacks' and is precisely the reason they turned on him with such vengance...not denying he had some problems with women....but the mass media would never have launched their campaign against him if he had not wandered of the liberal plantation and dared speak some truths....even the comedian who sparked the tirade against Cosby made it clear he was upset by 'Cosby talking down to blacks'

    Since you seem to think that Cosby was "repudiated" by black people "from seemingly every corner", I doubt there's anything I can tell you that will change your mind. As I indicated, there's nothing I can do make others come to the necessary realizations. They will have to come to those realizations on their own.

    I think the ticker I saw cut off the title to only say that a 15 y/o was shot, so I was curious about what happened.

    And then things got interesting.

    The venacular in the hood is "stitches for snitches" a well recognized problem in those areas.

    Yes, in this forum it is a rule that you have to use the title of the article you are writing about.

    Maybe another protest or some good, old fashioned looting and burning will solve this.
    No the suspects are blacks....ever heard of cops killing a teenager for his clothes....apparantly they wanted his coat but he wouldnt give it up.

    I'm sorry, perhaps repudiated was overly strong word to use. He did not escape without criticism from the black community.
    Cosby's remarks sparked a debate in the black community. Some criticized Cosby for fueling negative racial stereotypes and giving credence to conservative beliefs that the problems facing African Americans are self-imposed. But others applauded him for talking about the importance of personal responsibility, and still others found themselves split on how they viewed his message.
    Cosby Defends Criticism of Black Community (washingtonpost.com)

    "I worked hard to pull myself up by the bootstraps . . . but a lot of our people are still in the trenches trying to make it," he said. Cosby "needs to get off his soapbox and get back to his TV shows. When he was Dr. Huxtable on 'The Cosby Show,' he was the role model that motivated me. He needs to get back to those positive messages."

    Hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons praised Cosby as "a great American" but said that "pointing the finger may not be helpful -- we still have more struggle as a society and more work to do" to reform it. He rejected the notion that hip-hop music has had a coarsening effect, saying it "is the soundtrack that reflects the struggle" of young people today.

    Cosby may be oversimplifying a problem that defies easy solution, said Mario Beatty, a history professor at Bowie State University. "We have to confront these social problems, but the solution is not as simple as having someone change their behavior," he said. ". . . One has to clearly understand the causes of the problem."
    Debate Continues as Cosby Again Criticizes Black Youths (washingtonpost.com)

    Already Simmons, who make money off of the bad values typically portrayed and glorified in hip-hop, is already distancing himself from that.

    This was back in 2004. It's not 10 years later. Has the block on black crime rate increased or decreased in these 10 years. I think they've increased, and the reports coming from Chicago kinda backs that up.

    So, the message was heard. Yet I detect nothing was done. Again, if you have a citation or reference to contrary, do please post it, I'd more than welcome learning that we are further along in the process of improving the situation than not.
