Bill Cosby on Ghettofabolousness


“They’re  standing on the corner and they can’t speak English.  I can’t even  talk the way these people talk:
Why you ain’t,
Where you is,
What he drive,
Where he stay,
Where he work,

Who you be.. Who  you baby daddy?
And  I blamed the kid until I heard the mother talk.

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.
In  fact, you will never get any kind of job making a decent living. People  marched and were hit in the face with rocks to get an education, and now  we’ve got these knuckleheads walking around
The  lower economic people are not holding up their end in this  deal.

These  people are not parenting. They are buying things for kids. $500 sneakers  for what ? ?

And  they won’t spend $200 for Hooked on Phonics.

I  am talking about these people who cry when their son is standing there in  an orange suit.

Where  were you when he was  2 ? ?

Where  were you when he was 12 ? ?

Where  were you when he was 18, and how come you didn’t know that he had a pistol  ? ?

And  where is the father ? ? Or who is his father ?

Isn’t  that a sign of something gone wrong?

People  with their hats on backward, pants down around their crack, isn’t that a  sign of something ?
Or  are you waiting for Jesus to pull his pants up ?

Isn’t  it a sign of something when she has her dress all the way up and she’s got  all type of needles [piercing] going through her  body?

What  part of Africa did this come from??

We  are not Africans. Those people are not Africans; they don’t know a thing  about Africa .

With  names like Shaniqua, Taliqua, and Mohammed, and all of that crap, and all  of them are in jail.

Brown  or black versus the Board of Education is no longer the white person’s  problem.

We  have got to take the neighborhood back.
People  used to know shame. Today a woman has eight children with eight different  ‘husbands’ — or men or whatever you call them now.

We  have millionaire football players who cannot read.

We  have million-dollar basketball players who can’t write two paragraphs. We,  as black folks have to do a better job. Someone working at Wal-Mart with  seven kids, you are hurting us.

We  have to start holding each other to a higher  standard.

We  cannot blame the white people any  longer” Dr.  William Henry “Bill” Cosby, Jr.,  Ed.D.



It’s NOT about color…
It’s  about behavior!!! FOR  ALL OF US.

PASS THIS  ON AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
