There He Goes Again

Subtlety is not Bill Cosby's strong suit.

On Sunday, during a commencement speech to the class of 2006 of Spelman University, a historically black institution for women, the comedian challenged 500 graduates to take charge because, "the men, most of them, are in prison."

Maybe the $20 million gift he and wife Camille gave the school in 1987 gives Cosby carte blanche to say what he wants. And certainly dire statistics bear him out -- more black men of college age are in prison than in class.

We get your point, Coz, but c'mon! The sweeping generalizations? What would the graduating class at Morehouse think?
