Black Law Students / Latest Cosby Comments
« on: May 15, 2006, 09:06:31 AM »

1) Does the man have pink eye?
2) I agree with alot of what he has to say; I don't agree with how he's saying it.  I think the way he makes these comments is condescending and engenders defensiveness amongst the perpetrators instead of real change.

Probably my favorite show on TV right now (though 24 is close).  I gotta ask, what the hell happened to Foreman?  Did I miss an episode or did he just spontaneously get better?
