Bill Cosby Isn't Backing Down

I love this guy:

Last year Cosby, 68, accused young black people of squandering the civil rights accomplishments of the 1950s and '60s.

"These people marched and were hit in the face with rocks to get an education and now we've got these knuckleheads walking around," Cosby said of today's youth.

"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," he added in his talk last May.

Cosby's message Wednesday was warmly received by many, including Lamiya Patrick, a 16-year-old Compton High School sophomore, who said the comedian proved anyone could make something of themselves if they tried

To me, he embodies the old-school ideals. He's a self-made man, and he's trying to make a difference by telling kids about self-responsibility and self-determination.
