Like the Cosby daughter you too are slightly misinformed Carrington.
"So, doesn't it just make SENSE that she wouldn't be hanging out in the hood, or at the skating rink or walking through the projects with her "urban" friends?"
-Just because one is black and lacking wealth does not mean their extracurricular activities include hanging out in the hood or in the projects. And what's your definition of an "urban" friend??? lol. It certainly *** carry a negative connotation as your words suggest. Especially since it means to maintain a city dwelling. You do know that lots of people from diverse cultures and social classes are "urban".
"You know why so many black people hate Bill Cosby, but love Keyshia Coles' mama? Because most of us know somebody like Frankie. We don't like Bill because we can't understand his lifestyle. "
-Are you suggesting that most black people relate more readily to a Frankie than Bill Cosby??? And if so, are you basing this strictly on wealth? I hope not. I can't speak for the ENTIRE black population, but I am sure there are more African-Americans in this country with the same characteristics it requires to succeed: good character, morals, passion, education, common sense, and motivation...(which if you ask me, hold more worth than anything monetary) as Bill Cosby.
"When will we learn to stop HATING on *** we can't understand instead of trying to get there too?"
-And I find it troubling that you believe Blacks prefer to hate on other Blacks striving for success. I think "hating" comes into play when people like you and Evin Cosby attempt to equate success with anything BUT the black community. In a time where over 90% of the black population is supporting the first African-American democratic presidential nominee considered apart of the American elite, how do you figure that we would rather hate than support?? And that same presidential nominee was educated at Harvard and came from what many would consider a privileged upbringing. Yet, he holds such strong support because he not only associates and relates to blacks, but whites/Hispanics/Asians/women and the likes. His education and upbringing didn't prevent him from acknowledging and relating to his community. I think we praise leaders from the black community who are a direct contrast to the stereotypes the media would have you believe about blacks: ebonic talking, hood strolling, uneducated, poor, hating, "urban" dwellers. And boy do we buy the hype...more than any other culture in this country.
There are two groups of people who manage to distance themselves from these stereotypes: those who have better resources and reach back to those who could do better and, unfortunately, those who have better resources and denounce anything that may associate them with a lesser, "blacker" class. But I could go on and on about the foolishness you and Evin have seemed to conjure up.
