This Is The Difference Between Bill Cosby and Jason Whitlock
Like the Might Mos spit in Know That: I burn through your argument with action!
Being from the Philly area, I cringe when folks criticize Mr. Cosby. I get confused (temporarily) and wonder, “What the hell are people talking about? Bill Cosby is probably in the ‘hood right now! What are these people doing to help others instead of watching the damn TV and judging folk?”
I covered one of the seven events Mr. Cosby has given his time to this year and spoke to him regarding crime in the streets of Philadelphia. The questions were posed during a press conference, but Mr. Cosby spoke to me specifically for about 10 minutes even with local and national media present. Do not misunderstand the point I’m trying to make here. I’m not tooting my own horn. Most of the other media members present were not Black people. They were there just to get a story. I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt and say they were doing their “jobs”, but most of the reports had a negative spin. I asked him questions the ‘hood would ask and I’m honored he thought my questions were important enough to answer.
This man cares. Trust me, folks in Philly know.
I’ll have that post on Christmas Day.
Chuck D’s interview tentatively will be posted Christmas Eve. Between those mighty gulps of egg nog, check it out. I promise it’s gonna be a doooozy.
