Enough, By Juan Williams

EnoughIn 2004 Bill Cosby spoke at an NAACP celebration for the 50th Anniversary of Brown vs. Board of Education of Topeka. They were expecting Bill Cosby to be funny, sweet Cliff Huxtable, that is not what happened. Bill Cosby chastised the black community in public. He talked about behavior within the black community that was harming itself. 70% of poor black women are unwed mothers, the plague of drugs, crime, and illiteracy among poor blacks. These comments are acceptable in private, but Bill Cosby made them public. There was a lot of criticism towards Bill Cosby, but there was a lot of truth in his speech. I found this book fascinating and I highly recommend it.
