Bill Cosby Says Apathy Is A “Plague”

Bill Cosby

Bill Cosby is no stranger to causing controversy. In his younger years he was the hilarious comedian who turned into America’s favorite dad as Cliff Huxtable on The Cosby Show. Lately, however, he has been in the news for being one of black America’s biggest critics.

He recently sat down with the New York Post to discuss everything from bad kids to diabetes. He even commented on how he felt like Muslim families have the right idea when it comes to how to raise children.

I’m a Christian. But Muslims are misunderstood. Intentionally misunderstood. We should all be more like them. They make sense, especially with their children. There is no other group like the Black Muslims, who put so much effort into teaching children the right things, they don’t smoke, they don’t drink or overindulge in alcohol, they protect their women, they command respect. And what do these other people do?

They complain about them, they criticize them. We’d be a better world if we emulated them. We don’t have to become black Muslims, but we can embrace the things that work.

Cosby also commented on how black people seem to get upset when their dirty laundry is aired:

What are you doing with your dirty laundry? You walk around with it! Your children are walking the streets loudly using profanity feeling kind of powerful as they storm the subway or whatever. I’m not asking people to not be children, but this is anger stuff. They get on the subways and they’re disrespecting elders. What happened to the old saying, “I didn’t raise you like that.” It’s true! You knew that your mother and father didn’t allow you to go around and disrespect elders. So, the dirty laundry is very simple, man: You wouldn’t have it if you did something about it.

Bill Cosby is 75 and has earned that old black man right to say whatever he wants. Do you agree with what he had to say? Let us know below.
