Bill Cosby Speaks To Crime Problem in New Orleans

Bill Cosby has always been outspoken in the fight against crime within the black population. Saturday, he spoke to a crowd of around 2,000 people, encouraging them to cleanse the area of the culture crime, as it rebuilds after Katrina.

"It's painful, but we can't cleanse ourselves unless we look at the wound," Cosby told the rally of about 2,000 people in front of the city's convention center.

"Ladies and gentlemen, you had the highest murder rate, unto each other. You were dealing drugs to each other. You were impregnating our 13-, 12-, 11-year-old children," he said.

"What kind of a village is that?"

Cosby has been outspoken before and denounced by some because he encourages his race to come out from under their problems, and make their priorities more on education and morality. I applaud him for the wisdom he has shown.
