To Bill Cosby:
Doc, did YOU say "oops!"
(Or was that the anesthesiologist)?

Dr William H Cosby is a legend in his own time.
In his superlative contributions to his community in particular and humanity in general he has redefined the word "philanthropy" and set new standards of excellence in education and entertainment..
Bill Cosby has a way with humor that can have you rolling on the floor laughing.
Dr Cosby has a manner of presentation that you do not mind permitting your grandparents or grandchildren to witness.
(It does not have to be sent in a "plain brown wrapper" -- in contrast to what too often comes from some other kinds of rappers.)
He has a gift of provoking constructive thought while entertaining.
One of his classic routines is - "Doc, did you say 'oops!'?"
Paraphrased, for brevity and an incomplete recollection of all of the details, it recounts a medical procedure during which the doctor carries out several steps. After awhile a voice is heard by the patient to say "oops"!
That is where the side-splitting dialogue begins with "Doc, did you say 'oops!'?"
More later when we update this page.
Some published excerpts from May 17, 2004 remarks by Dr Bill Cosby at Constitution Hall in Washington, DC. have sparked much controversy and many comments.
Frequently updated news
(It was at the commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the Brown - Topeka Supreme Court ruling.)
In our opinion, which shall be elaborated on later when we update this page, it wasn't "Doc" that said "oops," but the anesthesiologist.
(Apparently there are some people who have a vested interest in the perpetration and perpetuation of self-destructive attitudes and behavior in certain communities.)
Unfortunately far too many descendants of the people who first established education and civilization now reject and despise their own heritage.
(This is in spite of overwhelming documentation from genealogy, anthropology, DNA research, history and the records of the sacred scriptures of the three Abrahamic monotheistic religions in the Judeo-Christian-Islamic community.)
Here is more insight into Bill Cosby's recent remarks.
The item widely circulated in the news media had less than 200 of Dr Cosby's own words quoted included in a 5 paragraph news item with four (4) ellipses within the quotations.
At least one observer characterized Dr Cosby's comments as a "sermon." The Editor has yet to hear any minister give a 200 word sermon.
(Even most opening and closing prayers and offertories are longer than 200 words.)
In contrast, the President's Daily Brief for August 6, 2001 that sparked much controversy during the recent September 11 Commission Hearings contained eleven paragraphs, more than 500 words and only three (3) ellipses (the material omitted supposedly for national security reasons).
Some have criticized Dr Cosby because of his wealth - much of it resulting from his career as an entertainer.
Dr Cosby's entertainment, however, is in refreshing contrast to the "thugocracy" and "morontocracy" being foisted upon the public by some contemporary (or should it be contemptible) "entertainers."
Also, in refreshing contrast, although Dr Cosby may be wealthy, he is not sending impoverished people to their deaths in fruitless wars, conflicts, terrorism and suicide missions like several other wealthy individuals are doing in many areas of a planet that seems to be "stuck on stupid" to the detriment of all of its inhabitants.
We have not yet obtained a copy of Bill Cosby's actual speech (although it was requested from several sources that should have it available).
If you have, or know of the source of, a complete transcript of Dr Cosby's remarks would you please inform the Editor (simply use the convenient "contact us" form on our Web site)
Although neither Howard University, the NAACP, nor the NAACP Legal Defense Fund ( sponsors of the anniversary commemoration ) would honor our request for a copy or a transcript of the speech,
( a distinction that we share with several other editors ),
we have finally been able to obtain a transcript of a speech that ( if heeded ), history may rank along side the Gettysburg Address.
In fact ( and please note that you heard or read it here first ), it might become known as the "Ghettoesburg Address."
So that you may read it in context and reach your own conclusions,
About a month and a half after speaking in Washington, DC, Dr Cosby was a featured speaker at the Rainbow-PUSH Convention in Chicago. His remarks there again received widespread media attention that again often strayed from his message.
Contributing Columnist Laura Washington of the Chicago Sun-Times gave excellent coverage of that event.
