Come on Bill!! Oct 17, 2008
Easy read. Facts are very interesting. Too bad the people who actually read this book, are not necessarily the people who should read this book.
fresh perspective from inside the community Oct 1, 2008
I enjoyed the fresh, new perspective, from an African American about the true condition of the black community. Too bad it is not shared by the popular leaders from these community - rather opting to play the ever played-out "blame "the man" game."
He's preaching. Who's listening? Sep 6, 2008
Bill Cosby's latest novel makes everyone uncomfortable about the realities of what slavery and institutional racism have done to America. Cosby's take is that there comes a time when black people have to take some responsibility for making their lives and communities better. It is no wonder that he has been ostracized by the media minorities who make their livelihoods on blaming others for black America's problems. The book gets a little preachy and simplistic about solutions toward the end of the book. The beginning is better. It is worth a read.
