The Cosby Show

Evidently, Bill Cosby’s got some strong opinions on lower-class black families. According to the Washington Post, Cosby unloaded at a recent event commemorating the 50th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Ed.:

“They’re standing on the corner and they can’t speak English,” he exclaimed. “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. And then I heard the father talk. . . . 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!”

Update: Cosby defends statements that he really shouldn’t have to waste his time defending, in the New York Times.
