    Not to bring up old stuff, but I just took some time to look at some of the Bill Cosby threads that we did here, and I cannot help but keep in mind that a year later, NO progress has been made - in light of what he said. A year later, Where is he? What is he doing? He just made those comments and then gave up? Now he is somewhere we don't know. The last time I heard, he was accused by women of assault.

    This thread is not to insult Dr. Cosby, because insult is not what I do. Rather, this thread is just to get your thoughts on the fact that since this "celebrated" moment, both people who have opposed him and agreed with him have done nothing. There were people who said that he was absolutely right, yet they do not volunteer their time in neither the Black Communities, nor the schools. They speak about how wrong it is for poor black folks to buy up material stuff, yet they say nothing to those black folks; instead, they just say that someone else was right, and take no action.

    On with the thread.

    A year later, Have you seen any progress since Cosby came out and made those comments? It only goes on to prove that Cosby made a point, but did not attempt to make an effort.

    thank you!

    so in the light of this understanding what do you think his actual intent was?
    i believe he just wanted to score some easy points.

    It sounds like UMASS, in addition to better acceptance into white society, teaches you self-hate.

    Overall, the intent was to earn dollars with controversy.....something not many people would do.

    GEE! I wonder why they have not mentioned these lectures on the news, as fast as they mentioned his comments a year later.
