Bill Cosby Talks to Don Lemon

Comedian and philanthropist Bill Cosby says there are some serious issues affecting black America and he knows how to solve them.

In an interview with CNN's Don Lemon, Cosby, 76, said black women are the majority head of households, and he wants to see more black men taking responsibility for their sons.

“I think it has to come from the universities,” he said. "I think, women, strongly because when you see 70 percent, in research, that says they are the leaders of the household, what we need is for people to realize I want to raise my kid. I want to go back and get my three kids. I want to take on that responsibility. I want to love my children.”

Cosby also criticized "no-gross" who don't provide solutions but are quick to blame him for focusing on the problems in the black community.

Frank Ski and Don Lemon

Local restauranteur Frank Ski, left, tweeted his response to CNN anchor Don Lemon's oral dissertation on what's wrong with black men in America.

Lemon, 47, recently defended Bill O'Reilly's low opinions of black men, saying O'Reilly didn't "go far enough" in his depiction of black men as social outcasts.

Addressing black people directly, Lemon, who is openly gay, listed "5 Things To Improve Black America," beginning with "Pull up your pants."

In his letter to Don, titled "I'm just saying," Ski tweeted "It was extremely irresponsible for a person of your influence to point fingers and criticize without also listing the "Systemic Racisms" of America that brought us to this point."

Ski, 49, who owns Frank Ski's Restaurant and Lounge, left V-103 last year after 14 years at the helm of the station's top-rated Frank Ski Morning Show and Frank and Wanda Morning Show.

It must be difficult for the Obama worshipers in the mainstream media to accept the fact that no one outside of their close-knit fraternity obsesses over Obama the way they do.

From MM:

Aptly named. Lemon certainly looked like he had swallowed something sour after Mabuse rejected his obsequious suggestion that President Obama’s warm welcome was somehow “unprecedented.”
Golden moment:

Mabuse: “It’s not unprecedented. When President Bush was here, you will remember, in February, there were people who were drumming, there were dances, and President Bush joined some of them.”

LOL, the blank stare on Lemon's face is priceless! Here's his face when African CNN correspondent Nkepile Mabuse tells him Obama got the same welcome that George Bush did. :blink:

Lemon was definitely caught off guard by her unbiased professionalism. Obviously Ms. Mabuse didn't get the memo that she's supposed to worship Obama as her counterparts at CNN do.

In an interview with CNN reporter Don Lemon, Minister Farrakhan breaks down the psychology behind Michael Jackson's lifelong struggle with self hate and the multiple surgeries he underwent to erase his blackness. Farrakhan says "the evidence is there" that Michael didn't have love of himself.
