Bill Cosby Says 'Turn Off BET' This Time Is He Right?
www.eurweb.com/story/eur29622.cfm

*Comedian/Actor/Philanthropist/Activist and of late, social commentator, Dr. Bill Cosby spoke to almost a thousand people on a Saturday a couple weeks on how we fix public education.

That's highly salient issue here in Los Angeles, as it is in almost every major city in America. So when two of the area black school board members (Saundra Davis of Culver City and Marquerite Lamotte of LAUSD) paired with Assistant Superintendent of Pasadena Unified School District and legendary educator extraordinaire, George McKenna to form an African American Educational Civil Rights Agenda, Cosby.in his own words, "wanted to ride on this bus."

Bill Cosby, "America's Dad" turned Black America's most vocal social critic, has pulled no punches on his frustration with the state of Black America. He's done everything one can do to try and change it. He's joked about it. He's role modeled it (in I Spy, the Cosby, Fat Albert, and Little Bill).

The sad thing is many African folks will say, "here goes Bill again", without even listening to his constructive criticism. I stopped watching BET as soon as they got rid of Tavis Smiley, because he was one of the very few reasons I watched the station.

BET has/had no entertainment value for me. I only watched it a few times. It's only so much soft porn I could deal with
