Hey Heeey Heeeeeey!

So nice old Bill Cosby likes to beat up on poor black kids. Erenreich's column is great and covers all the ground I would cover here: a sarcastic and funny counter example, and a serious, logical, and statistical rebuttal. How can Cosby expect poor inner-city black kids to act like rich suburban white kids? That's supposed to be "their end of the bargain" as he calls it? And as far as the swearing goes, I wonder if that's up across the board in America's youth.
