Cosby was right when he said it. I doubt that he would recant what he said about poor blacks.

He was trying to help, not hurt, poor blacks. Liberals who coddle poor blacks by being unrealistically permissive of their behavior, are not really helping poor blacks. 
     The truth often hurts but it is the best medicine for healing. Those who prefer rap to reason don’t know any better, and are destined to become losers.
