Now let me start by saying that it is quite obvious that there are plenty of people who sing the praises of the Queen B.  They shake, rattle and roll at her awesomeness and find her to be a great example for their daughters.  Then over in a tiny corner, far from view are just a few people who are not so taken by her. 


So, if yo

The%2BCosby%2BSaga-Pt1-Racial%2BBias-Jury.png?width=320NB Commentary: Personally, I don't think it's about race. I am sure they will be hard pressed to find a jury that either didn't hear about the allegations or never heard of Bill Cosby. I mean next to Oprah and Barack Obama, what other internationally known Black person have we heard of coming out of Hollywood especially during those days. Not to mention his TV series and commercials. If anything, folks will be more lenient even tolerant or maybe even disbelieving in the allegations due to his no

The%2BCosby%2BSaga-Intro.png?width=320NB Commentary: Bill Cosby is about to be back in the news. After a little over a year or so, the media attention will be focused on him once again. Unless of course they give us something else to focus on. Which is quite likely.

I am going to create a video playlist… and hopefully I won't get too distracted from this project. But I have written several blogs on this topic and I wish to share my thoughts with you on some of the topics that I covered in my blog.
This is a weird adventure for me beca

standard.jpgThe Media gave us Bill Cosby, a relatively unknown comedian who reached meteoric stardom. They made Bill Cosby and gave him certain privileges that they would not give to any other Black man during the 60's & 70's and like Fred Sanford would tell us, if the white man is doing it than it must be right. Remember how he wouldn't go to a black dentist? Well, during that time we too were struggling if we could trust a Black professional "anything" over a white one. Once Cosby was sanctioned by "white

NB Commentary: All too often we get things twisted. Actors are just that, actors. Their personal persona is NOT on stage, yet we identify with them as though their character on stage is who they really are rather than the mind control puppets that they truly are.

Hollywierd is just that weird, sick and painful for all. Why are we devastated when our favorite Entertainer dies or disappoints? Because we believe in the illusion they present on stage. We have n

DON'T MESS WITH BILL (COSBY)

My Photo

by Gloria Dulan-Wilson

It's 3:00 AM, and I'm going through my emails – something, being a night owl, I do routinely, in preparation for writing, or researching for my blog or a news article – when I see Bill Cosby's name in the subject line of an email. So, of course I zoom in on it because, anything about Cosby I'm going to read. He's one of my heroes.

What I read made me sad, then disappointed, and finally angry. It was an online response to an article that has been circulating the intern

I hope I have sufficiently shocked you to attention, because there is a disaster brewing right under our noses, right in the Black family community, that has been flying low under the radar.

As a matter of fact, I and others would probably not have become aware of it had it not been announced at Rev. Jesse Jackson's Rainbow Push 15th Anniversary Wall Street Initiative, during a panel discussion on the disappearing Black media.

Talk about a shock! When James L. Winston, Execut

You didn't know me when you were here,
But through your words I feel you are near.

I was too young for the demonstration,
But I learned about you in my education.

You said we all were created equal,
But maybe now we need a new sequel.

Because I don't know what happened to the dream,
Nor the members of your team.

Yeah, Andy's made a name,

Jesse got some fame.

But what happened to the vision?
Seems it's been lost to indecisio

                                                              LIKE SARAH PALIN, BILL COSBY JUST keeps 3828512496?profile=originalon talking. He has shown up yet again with more comments lately on cable news, and on the lucrative lecture circuit, continuing to malign and slander African Americans (witness his latest middlebrow, psychobabble Walmark book, "Come on, People: On The Path From Victims to Victors" another mediocre tract contemptuous of real socio-political causality and of real material conditions faced by Afric
