Of Critiquing Cosby’s “We cannot blame the white people any longer.”

Listen Seeker, I come in peace,

“The function of Propaganda is to identify the target’s forces and enemies.” — Onitaset Kumat

Wherever there is an African there is an African Nation.  African Nationalism is the Empowerment of that African Nation.  When Bill Cosby spoke for the 50th Anniversary of the Brown V. Board of Education Decision he delivered a misguided address that overlooked African Nationhood.  While late, we correct him here.  In the below video you’ll hear an excerpt of his transcript.  His complete transcript is dissected below for your enlightenment.  No War is won absent an Army.  Join the Creative Army that is the African Blood Siblings and Donate to your War Chest.

Of Critiquing Cosby’s “We cannot blame the white people any longer.”
By Onitaset Kumat

The Speech:

Ladies and gentlemen, I really have to ask you to seriously consider what you’ve heard, and now this is the end of the evening so to speak. I heard a prize fight manager say to his fellow who was losing badly, “David, listen to me. It’s not what’s he’s doing to you. It’s what you’re not doing. (laughter).

Reality: In War, the enemies tactics are paramount. To say otherwise is to blind the people.

Ladies and gentlemen, these people set, they opened the doors, they gave us the right, and today, ladies and gentlemen, in our cities and public schools we have fifty percent drop out. In our own neighborhood, we have men in prison. No longer is a person embarrassed because they’re pregnant without a husband. (clapping) No longer is a boy considered an embarrassment if he tries to run away from being the father of the unmarried child (clapping)

Reality: “Education is a weapon of human control,” as Marcus Garvey repeated. Fifty percent drop out from an enemy’s propaganda is 50% too little. Of course by being educated by another people, Africans will do what others do. Poor European women have out-of-wedlock children and poor European men abandon their children. Due Mis-Education, Impoverished Africans think that they are Poor Europeans.

Ladies and gentlemen, the lower economic and lower middle economic people are [not*] holding their end in this deal. In the neighborhood that most of us grew up in, parenting is not going on. (clapping) In the old days, you couldn’t hooky school because every drawn shade was an eye (laughing). And before your mother got off the bus and to the house, she knew exactly where you had gone, who had gone into the house, and where you got on whatever you had one and where you got it from. Parents don’t know that today.

Reality: In the last article we read the same complaints except those complaints are 100-years-old. Parenting isn’t simply a matter of looking behind shades. Whereas Parenting isn’t going on in any widespread fashion; it never was going on in any widespread fashion. See: What is Parenting?

I’m talking about these people who cry when their son is standing there in an orange suit. Where were you when he was two? (clapping) Where were you when he was twelve? (clapping) Where were you when he was eighteen, and how come you don’t know he had a pistol? (clapping) And where is his father, and why don’t you know where he is? And why doesn’t the father show up to talk to this boy?

Reality: The tragedy of Prison is summarized thusly–a European Nation in America is imposing its laws and imprisoning residents of an African Nation in America. The Mother and Father are serving a European Nation which mis-educates the parents to believe they are of the European Nation as the child is prepared for a life of legal slavery. See: Why do Black youth go to Prison?

The church is only open on Sunday. And you can’t keep asking Jesus to ask doing things for you (clapping). You can’t keep asking that God will find a way. God is tired of you (clapping and laughing). God was there when they won all those cases. 50 in a row. That’s where God was because these people were doing something. And God said, “I’m going to find a way.” I wasn’t there when God said it… I’m making this up (laughter). But it sounds like what God would do (laughter).

Reality: In many instances, the Church was imposed upon Africans largely to foster inactivity. As Napoleon Bonaparte put it, “There must be Religion. Otherwise the poor would murder the rich.”  Leopold lectured pastors to teach Christianity to teach servitude.  See: Letter from Leopold

We cannot blame white people. White people (clapping) .. white people don’t live over there. They close up the shop early. The Korean ones still don’t know us as well…they stay open 24 hours (laughter).

Reality: As above, in Warfare, the enemy’s activity must be accounted for. Chancellor Williams made it clear that Europeans (and Asians) are our enemies.  See: Excerpt from “The Destruction of Black Civilization.”

I’m looking and I see a man named Kenneth Clark. He and his wife Mamie…Kenneth’s still alive. I have to apologize to him for these people because Kenneth said it straight. He said you have to strengthen yourselves…and we’ve got to have that black doll. And everybody said it. Julian Bond said it. Dick Gregory said it. All these lawyers said it. And you wouldn’t know that anybody had done a damned thing.

Reality: The European’s Propaganda is not limited to the toys that one plays with. Integration has its own Propaganda with it. Mis-Education is nearly necessary when a weaker Nation is Educated by a stronger but foreign one.

50 percent drop out rate, I’m telling you, and people in jail, and women having children by five, six different men. Under what excuse, I want somebody to love me, and as soon as you have it, you forget to parent. Grandmother, mother, and great grandmother in the same room, raising children, and the child knows nothing about love or respect of any one of the three of them (clapping). All this child knows is “gimme, gimme, gimme.” These people want to buy the friendship of a child….and the child couldn’t care less. Those of us sitting out here who have gone on to some college or whatever we’ve done, we still fear our parents (clapping and laughter). And these people are not parenting. They’re buying things for the kid. $500 sneakers, for what? They won’t buy or spend $250 on Hooked on Phonics. (clapping)

Reality: W. E. B. Du Bois had outlined that Mammonism would be the ruin of the African race in America. More Materialism, Consumerism, and so on. Yet this mentality expands as a result of Integration and Mis-Education. I.e. Proximity and Exposure to the European Nation of America creates the poisoned mentality of vices. In this way, the regaled former generation bares responsibility for the failures of this one. See: Excerpt from “Souls of Black Folk.

Kenneth Clark, somewhere in his home in upstate New York…just looking ahead. Thank God, he doesn’t know what’s going on, thank God. But these people, the ones up here in the balcony fought so hard. Looking at the incarcerated, these are not political criminals. These are people going around stealing Coca Cola. People getting shot in the back of the head over a piece of pound cake! Then we all run out and are outraged, “The cops shouldn’t have shot him” What the hell was he doing with the pound cake in his hand? (laughter and clapping). I wanted a piece of pound cake just as bad as anybody else (laughter) And I looked at it and I had no money. And something called parenting said if get caught with it you’re going to embarrass your mother. Not you’re going to get your butt kicked. No. You’re going to embarrass your mother. You’re going to embarrass your family.

Reality: See above on Mammonism.

If knock that girl up, you’re going to have to run away because it’s going to be too embarrassing for your family. In the old days, a girl getting pregnant had to go down South, and then her mother would go down to get her. But the mother had the baby. I said the mother had the baby. The girl didn’t have a baby. The mother had the baby in two weeks. (laughter) We are not parenting. Ladies and gentlemen, listen to these people, they are showing you what’s wrong. People putting their clothes on backwards. Isn’t that a sign of something going on wrong? (laughter)

Reality: See above on Mammonism.

Are you not paying attention, people with their hat on backwards, pants down around the crack. Isn’t that a sign of something, or are you waiting for Jesus to pull his pants up (laughter and clapping ). Isn’t it a sign of something when she’s got her dress all the way up to the crack…and got all kinds of needles and things going through her body. What part of Africa did this come from? (laughter). We are not Africans. Those people are not Africans, they don’t know a damned thing about Africa. With names like Shaniqua, Shaligua, Mohammed and all that crap and all of them are in jail. (When we give these kinds names to our children, we give them the strength and inspiration in the meaning of those names. What’s the point of giving them strong names if there is not parenting and values backing it up).

Reality: We are Africans. We are not Europeans. The function of Propaganda is to identify the target’s forces and enemies. Bill Cosby shows his Mis-Education when he identifies as though he were a European.

Brown Versus the Board of Education is no longer the white person’s problem. We’ve got to take the neighborhood back (clapping). We’ve got to go in there. Just forget telling your child to go to the Peace Corps. It’s right around the corner. (laughter) It’s standing on the corner. It can’t speak English. It doesn’t want to speak English. I can’t even talk the way these people talk. “Why you ain’t where you is go, ra,” I don’t know who these people are. And I blamed the kid until I heard the mother talk (laughter). Then I heard the father talk. This is all in the house. You used to talk a certain way on the corner and you got into the house and switched to English. Everybody knows it’s important to speak English except these knuckleheads. You can’t land a plane with “why you ain’t…” You can’t be a doctor with that kind of crap coming out of your mouth. There is no Bible that has that kind of language. Where did these people get the idea that they’re moving ahead on this. Well, they know they’re not, they’re just hanging out in the same place, five or six generations sitting in the projects when you’re just supposed to stay there long enough to get a job and move out.

Reality: The opinion on moving out of the project at the behest of employment shines a light on the condition of the African Race in America. The European Nation imports goods into the African Nation and the African Nation exports people. This isn’t 1713 and international but 2013 and domestic. Frankly, the African Nation shouldn’t even be speaking a European language. We’re so colonized that we lecture ourselves on our inability to be functional slaves.

Now look, I’m telling you. It’s not what they’re doing to us. It’s what we’re not doing. 50 percent drop out. Look, we’re raising our own ingrown immigrants. These people are fighting hard to be ignorant. There’s no English being spoken, and they’re walking and they’re angry. Oh God, they’re angry and they have pistols and they shoot and they do stupid things. And after they kill somebody, they don’t have a plan. Just murder somebody. Boom. Over what? A pizza? And then run to the poor cousin’s house. They sit there and the cousin says “what are you doing here?” “I just killed somebody, man.” “What?” “I just killed somebody, I’ve got to stay here.” “No, you don’t.” “Well, give me some money, I’ll go…” “Where are you going?” “North Carolina.” Everybody wanted to go to North Carolina. But the police know where you’re going because your cousin has a record.

Reality: Part of the problem of mis-directed anger goes back to Propaganda. Again, The function of Propaganda is to identify the target’s forces and enemies. Through Mis-Education, Africans conceive Africans as Enemies and Europeans as their forces. That’s bound to end in Self-Hate and “Black-on-Black violence.”

Five or six different children, same woman, eight, ten different husbands or whatever, pretty soon you’re going to have to have DNA cards so you can tell who you’re making love to. You don’t who this is. It might be your grandmother. (laughter) I’m telling you, they’re young enough. Hey, you have a baby when you’re twelve. Your baby turns thirteen and has a baby, how old are you? Huh? Grandmother. By the time you’re twelve, you could have sex with your grandmother, you keep those numbers coming. I’m just predicting.

Reality: No comment. This is just a joke. Though Africans did not invent young lovers–it was common in European History. The staple of English class is “Romeo and Juliet” which centers on teenage love.

I’m saying Brown Vs. Board of Education. We’ve got to hit the streets, ladies and gentlemen. I’m winding up, now , no more applause. I’m saying, look at the Black Muslims. There are Black Muslims standing on the street corners and they say so forth and so on, and we’rere laughing at them because they have bean pies and all that, but you don’t read “Black Muslim gunned down while chastising drug dealer.” You don’t read that. They don’t shoot down Black Muslims. You understand me. Muslims tell you to get out of the neighborhood. When you want to clear your neighborhood out, first thing you do is go get the Black Muslims, bean pies and all (laughter). And your neighborhood is then clear. The police can’t do it .

Reality: The European Nation kidnaps members of the African Nation because the latter is disorganized and the former is organized. European-America’s Organization can only change itself; and the same applies to African-America’s. We need to start locally. See: African Power from Local Economic Centers.

I’m telling you Christians, what’s wrong with you? Why can’t you hit the streets? Why can’t you clean it out yourselves? It’s our time now, ladies and gentlemen. It is our time (clapping). And I’ve got good news for you. It’s not about money. It’s about you doing something ordinarily that we do get in somebody else’s business. It’s time for you to not accept the language that these people are speaking, which will take them nowhere. What the hell good is Brown V. Board of Education if nobody wants it?

Reality: No comment. It’s good advice. See: What is Responsibility?

What is it with young girls getting after some girl who wants to still remain a virgin. Who are these sick black people and where did they come from and why haven’t they been parented to shut up? To go up to girls and try to get a club where “you are nobody..,” this is a sickness ladies and gentlemen and we are not paying attention to these children. These are children. They don’t know anything. They don’t have anything. They’re homeless people. All they know how to do is beg. And you give it to them, trying to win their friendship. And what are they good for? And then they stand there in an orange suit and you drop to your knees, “(crying sound) He didn’t do anything, he didn’t do anything.” Yes, he did do it. And you need to have an orange suit on too (laughter, clapping).

Reality: The 13th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution allows Slavery as a Punishment for Crime. In America, Enslavement is the standard Punishment for Crime. The difficulty African Businesses have in competing with Major European Companies is those companies, like Dell, Burger King, Microsoft and so forth use Prison Labor or ‘Slave Labor.’ The Enslaved comprise African youth; who whether they did something or not don’t deserve Slavery. What’s more whether a young African does something in an African Nation, a European Nation should not punish him–not with slavery and not with anything. To mock the tragedy here is foul.

So, ladies and gentlemen, I want to thank you for the award (big laughter) and giving me an opportunity to speak because, I mean, this is the future, and all of these people who lined up and done..they’ve got to be wondering what the hell happened. Brown V. Board of Education, these people who marched and were hit in the face with rocks and punched in the face to get an education and we got these knuckleheads walking around who don’t want to learn English (clapping) I know that you all know it. I just want to get you as angry that you ought to be. When you walk around the neighborhood and you see this stuff, that stuff’s not funny. These people are not funny anymore. And that ‘s not brother. And that’s not my sister. They’re faking and they’re dragging me way down because the state, the city and all these people have to pick up the tab on them because they don’t want to accept that they have to study to get an education.

Reality: The European Nation should find Africans costly, we’re at War. However, we are not a Liability to the state but an economic gold mine. Things have not changed. The European exploits us through his goods and exploits our labour. On top of this, the European uses the excess wealth to sexually exploit us. Either here or in Africa. See: “Very Young Girls” and Europe, Pedophilia, and Re-Organization

We have to begin to build in the neighborhood, have restaurants, have cleaners, have pharmacies, have real estate, have medical buildings instead of trying to rob them all. And so, ladies and gentlemen, please, Dorothy Height, where ever she’s sitting, she didn’t do all that stuff so that she could hear somebody say “I can’t stand algebra, I can’t stand…and “what you is.” It’s horrible.

Reality: No comment. This is going by the right idea. The African Blood Siblings is an Organization devoted to creating Prosperous, Independent African Communities. We need an Army to do so. Please enlist or donate.

Basketball players, multimillionaires can’t write a paragraph. Football players, multimillionaires, can’t read. Yes. Multimillionaires. Well, Brown V Board of Education, where are we today? It’s there. They paved the way. What did we do with it. The white man, he’s laughing, got to be laughing. 50 percent drop out, rest of them in prison.

Reality: Brown V. Board of Education enabled a new level of Propaganda which itself weakened the African Nation and its this weakness which makes the European laugh for his exploitation becomes easier despite our misbeliefs to the contrary.

You got to tell me that if there was parenting, help me, if there was parenting, he wouldn’t have picked up the Coca Cola bottle and walked out with it to get shot in the back of the head. He wouldn’t have. Not if he loved his parents. And not if they were parenting! Not if the father would come home. Not if the boy hadn’t dropped the sperm cell inside of the girl and the girl had said, “No, you have to come back here and be the father of this child.” Not ..“I don’t have to.”

Reality: “There grows no wheat where there is no grain.” Not only is some wheat present because of the grain; but some wheat is absent because there was no grain. If Africans are of much vice and little virtue, it’s due the grain of vice being abundant while the grain of virtue being absent. However, Africans are Oppressed so the situation of the grains is not Self-Determined but Imposed. This needs to be understood foremost. Organization counters this situation. That’s a purpose of the African Blood Siblings.

Therefore, you have the pile up of these sweet beautiful things born by nature raised by no one. Give them presents. You’re raising pimps. That’s what a pimp is. A pimp will act nasty to you so you have to go out and get them something. And then you bring it back and maybe he or she hugs you. And that’s why pimp is so famous. They’ve got a drink called the “Pimp-something.” You all wonder what that’s about, don’t you? Well, you’re probably going to let Jesus figure it out for you (laughter). Well, I’ve got something to tell you about Jesus. When you go to the church, look at the stained glass things of Jesus. Look at them. Is Jesus smiling? Not in one picture. So, tell your friends. Let’s try to do something. Let’s try to make Jesus smile. Let’s start parenting. Thank you, thank you (clapping, cheers)

Reality: The European is by nature a Pirate. Toward Piracy his Education will lead. To solve our problems we should not integrate schools but separate. If this were communicated, or a national consciousness, Bill Cosby could have made a good opportunity great. Instead he spoke a lot of nonsense. Please reader support the African Blood Siblings for bring Knowledge, Wisdom and Love where there is Ignorance, Error and Hate.

10 thoughts on “Of Critiquing Cosby’s “We cannot blame the white people any longer.”

  1. This is an excellent post mortem of a speech uttered by an old fool whose thinking is buried deep within WHITE HOPE for BLACK FOLK.

    Unbeknownst to Bill Cosby is that he is highlighting the failures of HIS generation to teach African knowledge and wisdom to the generations that came after his own. If the young generation is at a loss as to who they are, where they came from and what they ought to be doing… they have every right to place the blame upon the heads of their elders.

    1. Precisely. As I opened, “Wherever there is an African there is an African Nation. African Nationalism is the Empowerment of that African Nation.” The Nationhood of Africans remains weak. A weak Nation abused by a strong Nation necessarily has a slew of problems. It’s African Nationalism that we need to practice. That requires Organization. None of this registered with Bill Cosby.

  2. Sound skepticism is the necessary condition for good discernment; but piecemeal criticism is an error.

    1. A very ironic statement Brother Paul S.

      Look to this poem,

      “A person who knows not
      And knows not that they know not
      Is foolish–disregard them
      A person who knows not
      And knows that they know not
      Is simple–teach them
      A person who knows not
      And believes that they know
      Is dangerous–avoid them
      A person who knows
      And knows not that they know
      Is asleep–awake them
      A person who knows
      And knows that they know
      Is wise–follow them
      All of these persons reside in you
      Know Thy Self
      And to Maat be true”


      And do not forget your own review,

      Leave him in error who loves his error.

      Do not love the error of blind criticism a Wise Brother. Read more and learn more.

  3. Good post brother. Cosby also did not mention that there are many private owned prisons. And that the prison industrial complex is BIG business. As you stated,it’s the new slavery. I grew up watching The Cosby Show like many my age. I always like Bill but over the years he’s turned into a grumpy old man. It seems he’s lost perspective on what’s going on with black people. It’s funny that he talks about negative stereotypes of blacks when he made the cartoon Fat Albert that had black talking in ghetto gibberish. And the main character was grossly obese when we all know many black people have a horrible diet as it is.
    And I hope he hasn’t spoke on anything regarding nationhood or nationalism. If memory serves me correct I thought he had a daughter with a white mistress. Or at least a biracial girl came out and claimed he was her father. Either way you slice it he had a sexual relationship with a white woman. In my opinion, anyone who dates/marries whites shouldn’t be speaking on black issues. I admire Harry Belafonte for his work in Africa but he’s married to a white woman. So I still see him more as a humanitarian than a black nationalist. Even authors like Franz Fanon,Ivan Van Sertima and Cheihk Anta Diop married white women. While I admire there work I still feel as though they have been “compromised”. The bottom line is Bill Cosby makes some valid points regarding personal responsibility. But he can’t disregard the structural racism that still persists. The fact that Obama is President doesn’t mean anything. We are not in a post-racial America. And I think that’s a reality that even Cosby would have to acknowledge.

    1. The failure to view the Afrikan American community as a nation-within-a-nation or in short, as a nation, by Afrikan American scholars, thinkers, social analysts, intellectuals (i.e., opinion shapers such as newspapers columnists, print and electronic media establishments and personalities, community activists and institutional leaders) and social commentators means that many of the problems which confront the community have not been appropriately and usefully analyzed or resolved. This means that a number of useful and powerful approaches to resolving those problems have been ignored or overlooked. The principal conceptual instruments that Afrikan American thinkers and problem-solvers utilize in dealing with the problems confronting the Afrikan American community have been those handed down to them by the liberal intellectual establishment which represents the interest of the White American nation. These instruments primarily include individualistic and familial analyses, and secondarily, institutional, communal and (sub)cultural analyses. Consequently, the use of these instruments and their analytical outcomes almost invariably leades to the victim-blaming conclusions; that the sources of all social problems in the Afrikan American community are either due to an aggregation of individual inabilities, capabilities, lacks, impairments, deficiencies, errant motives and drives; family weaknesses, values, pathologies, disruptions; institutional insufficiencies and dysfunctions; or to aberrant communal and subcultural mores, folkways and worldviews.

      While other analysts may with sound reasons point the finger of blame at the racist, structural dynamics and hegemony of the White American nation, they all but ignore the structural dynamics of the African American community and its organizational vulnerability to racism. This is principally the result of their stimulus-bound and reactionary belief that the Afrikan American community is hopelessly dependent on the White American community, is incapable of self-determination and therefore must await the favorable transformation of White racist attitudes, behaviors, and social structural dynamics before it can be rescued from its problems. Therefore, an inordinate amount of individual time and energy as well as organizational skill is utilized by this group of thinkers and activists not to productively, socially, economically, and politically transform the African American community, but to vainly importune, cajole or pressure the White community to change its ways. Meanwhile, the Black community is left to fester and decay, its potential to build a nation wasting away.

      Individualistic, familial, institutional, and subcultural approaches to White racism in America and social problems in the Black community, can only yield problem-solving outcomes commensurate with their narrow analytical ranges. While social structural approaches to these issues are much broader in their analytical range, their analyses of the overall national dynamics which interact to the detriment of the Afrikan American community instructive, their relative lack of concern with changing the structural nature of the community leads to additional problems while not solving the original ones.”

      — Amos Wilson
