During a recent visit to Baltimore, Bill Cosby had words of wisdom to share about dead-beat parenting.

Bill Cosby is at it again – talking to the black community about family. This time, however, the comedian managed to avoid the “scolding” tone that angered black leaders in the past.
According to the AP, Cosby was in Baltimore recently – urging parents to keep their children close. “Your children got no business going to the street for love. There’s no love out there,” Cosby told the crowd during a city-organized block party. “All that’s out there is lost young men looking for love.”
Cosby told the Baltimore audience to empower themselves by pursuing educational opportunities that lead to well-paying jobs. The legendary entertainer and advocate for education addressed a few hundred people Thursday in the struggling Park Heights neighborhood, according to reports.
Cosby was joined by Carolane Williams, president of Baltimore City Community College. The two promoted community college as a viable path away from poverty and crime. The comedian’s remarks were reportedly positive and free from admonishment, and the message was supported by Sly and the Family Stone song “You Can Make It if You Try.”
The even was organized to promote Operation PROTECT, a city program in which disadvantaged neighborhoods are flooded for a period of several weeks with city services and increased police patrols. Mayor Sheila Dixon said the purpose of the program is to familiarize residents with the many services available to them. But, she said, taking advantage of those services is a matter of “personal responsibility.”
I GOT SOEMTHIN TO SAY ABOUT DEADBET PARENTS!!
you suck dad!! lol
He ain’t lying…..
I’m thinkin’ maybe Bill was talking ’bout yo ass in this speech….you need a hug or sumthin?
YOU TELL ‘EM BILL!!!
ALOT OF BLACK PEOPLE NEED TO HEAR THIS!
ESPECIALLY OUR YOUTH.
ALL THESE PROBLEMS CAN BE SOLVED BUT ITS GONNA TAKE EFFORT ON THE PART OF THOSE WHO NEED IT AND THOSE WHO CAN GIVE IT!!!
@Lauren, thanks for the copy & paste.
Bill needs a megaphone everytime he speaks. He does nothing but tell it how it should be and lazy ass Black folk get all aggy. Straight up, if even half of the community would seriously listen to Bill and put some of these obvious practices into play, a lot of stuff would change…
Lol @ Doagae
But anyway when is this man going to stop spouting empty platitudes and attempting to pass them off as amazing innovative ideas. You mean people shouldn’t go out on “the streets” (whatever that means, and wherever that is) “looking for love” (whatever that means, and whatever that is). NO! Revelation of the century.
And we should all go to college… wait a minute Bill where did you go to college? Oh that’s right your empty rhetoric only applies to those of us who haven’t made a fortune shucking and jiving for white people. My mistake.
DON’T FEAR THE TRUTH
JUST HEAR THE TRUTH
Good job Bill. Baltimore needs it.
Hey TJ. You sound awefully ignorant considering Cosby has his BA from Temple and MA from UMASS.
Maybe you’re defensive because you’re one of the ignorant trash that Cosby is trying to extricate from the Black Community.
Bill’s “shucking and jiving” has paid for the education of literally hundreds of black youth. So until you actually accomplish something in your life besides running your ignorant mouth on a website, STFU about Mr. Cosby.
Dear Common Sense
Extricate is not a word.
And for your information I have two ivy league degrees.
Personal credentials aside I never said what he was saying was incorrect. I merely questioned his motivations, tactics, and delusions of grandeur.

Thank you Truff. Extricate not a word…lol
And if TJ has two Ivy League degrees, then I am going to light mine on fire, cause clearly they’re now letting any buffoon in.
You my friend just made a bigger arse of yourself. Care to make any further foolish and incorrect statement? The world is flat? C-A-T spells dog?
Think before posting son.
also @ tj
HOWS THIS FOR EDUCATION, MOTIVATION, & TACTICS???
Bill Cosby has been a crusader throughout
his career for a better world and for better understanding between people. Besides his
involvement with a host of charity organizations, Cosby is also an active trustee of his
alma mater, Temple University of Philadelphia. As philanthropists, Bill and Camille
Cosby have made substantial gifts in support of education (most notably to
predominantly African American colleges and universities) and to various social service
and civil rights organizations.
In addition, Cosby earned a Masters Degree in Education (M. Ed.) in 1972 and his
Doctorate in Education (Ed. D.) in 1977 from the University of Massachusetts.
SEEMS YOU ARE THE ONE WHO IS DELUSIONAL…
BILL COSBY LOOK LIKE AN OLDER DARKER JAY-Z. ANYHOW HE CANT TALK CUZ I WENT TO CAU AND I DONE PUFFED TREES W/HIS OFFSPRING. RUDY TOO.
@ Da Truff Hurtz!!!
@TJ almost made me question my own dang intelligence and have to break out a dictionary, thesaurus and do a spell check on them both! Ivy League doesn’t alway equal intelligence or the common sense of breaking out one of the aforementioned tools to look up a simple word before you try and blast someone about it. Hell, you’re on the internet! How easy is it to put that in your search bar and get the info even quicker? OOPS!
Feel free to pick up a dictionary every now and then.
See about a weave with bangs to cover that FIVE HEAD too.
WHY DO THE MOST LIGHTSKINNED BROS. BE SO PROUD TO BE BLACK. LIKE U CANT JUST BE BLACK U HAVE TO BEEE BLACK
I love Bill Cosby and the only reason why people have a problem with him is because he speaks the truth and to many the truth hurts..so my advice to yall who are just not getting it, wake up and get real quick!
LOL @ T.J. And I love the fact that common sense called her son afterward. Intelligent but can still get hood.
Back at you fam.
And yeah, tj is suddenly very silent.
