There has been a macro going around Facebook for 10 years now, quoting Bill Cosby admonishing Black people to straighten up, Black men to take responsibility for their kids and the like. It is real, according to Snopes, from a speech he made at, I believe, Morehouse College. Well spoken, and dead on coming from a successful Black man aimed at a Black audience. The problem I have with its repeated revival on Facebook is that all the people posting it are White, posting it for their White friends and liking it over and over. Quite sad, really. You post this saying “it needs to be said”, but you aren’t even posting it to the audience that arguably needs to hear it. You are just massaging your superiority complex in a giant circle jerk of other racists.
Well said. So true. Sometimes I’m embarassed to be white.
