Bill Cosby Attacked Over "Fat Albert" Cartoon

NewsmaxIn another fatherly-like address, Bill Cosby pleaded with the black community to stop blaming the "white man" for its problems.While speaking at the annual Rainbow/PUSH Coalition conference, Cosby said: "It is almost analgesic to talk about what the white man is doing against us, and it keeps a person frozen in their seat. It keeps you frozen in your hole that you are sitting in to point up and say, 'That's the reason why I am here.' We need to stop this." Back in May, Cosby commented on the poor grammar used by some young blacks. "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." Now, in an attempt to undermine his message, Cosby's enemies are calling him a hypocrite. And it all relates to a cartoon show that dates back to the 1970s. Cosby happens to have created the cartoon series called "Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids." The show included a couple of characters named Mushmouth and Dumb Donald. Critics are claiming that, as a result of his animation creativity, Cosby should not be disapproving of the bad grammar of today's black youths.

Fortunately, Cosby (a Democrat activist, by the way, who campaigned for Al Gore in 2000) is undeterred by his unfunny detractors. He told the Washington Post, "I am not going to even answer these fools." He did, however, offer this commentary: "Fat Albert is good. Fat Albert's attitude toward women was good. Fat Albert and the gang, if they were living in a lower economic neighborhood, they would be working. Nobody in their right mind could look at some of these people and say the same thing. There is not even a close comparison." And he declared, "I gave the message, and I may speak it again and again." The Left Coast Report is of the opinion that, when it comes to this issue, those who try to go up against Cosby will inevitably end up with pudding on their faces.
