Current Events & The Cos

Comedian Bill Cosby has sparked some heated discussion with his recent criticism of certain members of the African-American community.

In one remark at a May commemoration of the anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education desegregation decision, Cosby denounced the grammar of some African-Americans.

"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," Cosby said. "Everybody knows it's important to speak English except these knuckleheads. You can't be a doctor with that kind of crap coming out of your mouth."

Cosby Kid, Mush Mouth, from the show "Fat Albert & the Cosby Kids" issued the following statement: "Hey-buh man-buh, listen to Bill-buh. Talking right-buh is the best-buh."


In a related story, Fat Albert has announced plans to finally sue Dwayne from "What's Happening" over the phrase "Hey, Hey, Hey!"

I'll keep you posted as these stories develop.
