This is a quick snippet of a common ongoing discussion that was centered around Bill Cosby’s initial indictment of Black Parents a couple years ago. Alumni Roundup recently featured Mr. Cosby and bequeathed the title “America’s Father”, based majorly on his repeated portrayal of positive role models in the media.
One of our contributors, Maurice Dolberry, who is an educator, and in our mind clearly a part of “the solution” to some of Black America’s recurring issues problems presents a strong argument against Cosby’s stance. Mo’s position is stated clearly and featured this week here on the site.
Recently, on a trip to Miami for an HBCU Alumni charity scholarship event (no it’s not all parties) Mo and I got to sit down and rehash a few points. The resurgence of this conversation is partly due to the recent similar indictment by Barack Obama in his Father’s Day address.

PS: For fairness sake, this clip is a very small snippet of a much larger discussion. Police brutality is a major problem n the US, especially involving inner city blacks. Arguing for better parenting in this clip does not mean that I excuse the transgressions of the Police.
