Obama urges black men to be responsible

    All well and good. But when Bill Cosby or Thomas Sowell or Walter E. Williams say the same thing, they get reamed for airing "the black community's dirty laundry/"

    Anyone else see the hypocrisy? Or are some of you simply going to call me a racist?

    I'd comment, but if I did I'm sure Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton would come knocking down my door.

    I fucking hate those douchebags.

    I don't think you're being racist.

    The strawman told me he doesn't think you are, either. And he also said you could have waited at least one news cycle before building him.

    The story you linked to is less than eight hours old -- on a Sunday. You have no idea if Obama is going to get "reamed" or not, and you know it.
  4. I never have a problem with anyone of any race reminding fathers they have obligations. It's a lesson too few of us have learned.

    I do see hypocrisy, and honestly, I just don't give a shit. Bill Cosby can and had taken care of himself. I can think of better people whose offense I can take up as my own than a philandering Jell-O peddler.

    It's only hypocrisy if the same people are doing opposite things.

    So Bill Cosby is wrong because he's had affairs and shamelessly hucksters for money. That would leave Bill Clinton out of any discussion. Ditto Jesse Jackson.

    You can feel very comfortable making that statement because the black community won't attack Obama because he's a liberal democrat. Thomas Sowell gets attacked for saying the exact same thing because he happens to be in the wrong party.

    The strawman wanted me to ask you this: Since Jeremiah Wright got eviscerated by the right wing for the blame-America meme that Falwell, Robertson and Hagee used before him, does that mean he's in the wrong party, too?

    No....didn't say Bill Cosby was wrong, necessarily. I'm just not going to feel the terrible weight of hypocrisy for him on this particular issue. I think Bill Cosby is getting his message across just fine without my sympathy.
