We know that Bill Cosby has no problem sharing his opinion of the black community and has said some very controversial things. He recently gave the keynote speech at the African-American Education Summit during Essence Music festival over the weekend and here’s a little excerpt from his speech:

Cosby on how to help cut the rate of teen pregnancies in America:
“We’ve got to lay it out for them. Let’s tell them about life. You’re 14 and having sex. OK. So, what kind of job do you have?” We need to start getting into people’s business. We need to say, ‘Hey, I’m your cousin man, I’m your brother, I’m your sister and I don’t care if you don’t talk to me anymore but your teenage daughter ain’t got no business dressing like that!’ Tell them. How long do we wait? When are you going to wake up? We can’t keep blaming people and expecting people to fix it. This has to stop.”

“Apathy is strangling you to death,” he said, to rousing applause and a few ‘Amens’ from the crowd. “Get up. Stay on the scene. Be a studying machine,” he said, drawing from soul singer James Brown’s lyrics. We need to start getting into people’s business. We need to say, ‘Hey, I’m your cousin man, I’m your brother, I’m your sister and I don’t care if you don’t talk to me anymore but your teenage daughter ain’t got no business dressing like that!’ Tell them.”
