RT @philunchained: @GeeDee215 didn't Cosby threaten NBC to end the show if Theo wasn't allowed to have a Mandela poster?

Sep 25, 2014

RT @GeeeKayGeee: @GeeDee215 I wonder if Cosby thought being apolitical would allow the show to be more universal and easier for the public to swallow

Sep 25, 2014

RT @staceyNYCDC: @GeeDee215 on some hot button issue--DWI, eating disorders, drug use, etc. The universe of the Cosby Show is a kind of a fantasy bubble.

Sep 25, 2014

A Different World became a much more pointed show after it loosened its ties to "The Cosby Show."

Sep 25, 2014

If we're going to hold up "The Cosby Show" for its influence, we gotta at least talk about its pointed silence on anything political.

Sep 25, 2014

RT @bomani_jones: anyway, i also didn’t find the cosby show THAT funny after a while. they put the simpsons on thursday and the joneses never looked back.

Sep 25, 2014

RT @bomani_jones: i don’t give a damn about your granny RT @Cooda610: Cosby said nothing different than My Grandmother tells me today

Sep 25, 2014

RT @bomani_jones: gotta admit, i never saw “the cosby the show” the same after ol bill started telling us how he really felt about my folks.

Sep 21, 2014

RT @merynfluker: @nprmonkeysee @GeeDee215 @ShrillCosby Unlike most shows where there's a black family thus branded as "The New 'Cosby Show,'"...

Sep 21, 2014

RT @merynfluker: @GeeDee215 @ShrillCosby Especially not for the broad audience Cosby was trying to reach and certainly not in the late '80s/early '90s.

Sep 19, 2014

RT @rauchway: @GeeDee215 1/2 I am going out on a limb here and saying Bill Cosby used to be funny (see eg Noah routine)

Sep 19, 2014

It's weird to think about, but Bill Cosby has been more-than-incidental to my self- conception.

Sep 19, 2014

It took a decade-and-a-half, but I finally knew on which side of the Cosby/Triflin' Negro divide I fell.

Sep 19, 2014

I pointed out that Cosby failed the 10th grade & dropped out of high school. That he got his GED and got into Temple on a track scholarship.

Sep 19, 2014

i went in. So i turned to the CNN dude and called Cosby a hypocrite whose personal history didn't match up with his ideals.

Sep 19, 2014

I grew up poor. I was, at the moment CNN dude showed up, without a job. Bill Cosby who was rich as Croesus, grew up much like i did.

Sep 19, 2014

Cosby went to Howard to before a bunch of other well-heeled Negroes and minimized police brutality and made fun of 'ghetto' names.

Sep 19, 2014

This was probably all magnified for kids in Philly since Cosby was a local dude. He went to Central, then Temple. I felt like I knew him.

Sep 19, 2014

RT @jodyrosen: @GeeDee215 I was in HS during peak Cosby Show years. EVERYBODY was in love w/Lisa Bonet. The dreamy stoner black boho goddess of the 80s.

Sep 19, 2014

I remember my teachers invoking Cosby as sort of a statement of their values — Eddie Murphy who used '4-letter words,' was their bete noir.

Sep 19, 2014

(...singing a melody from 'Song Of The South,' no less.) Bill Cosby was slinging Jell-O. They were inescapable.

Sep 19, 2014

I wasn't old enough to have homework yet. But Bill Cosby was homework.

Sep 19, 2014

They'd ask us --- quiz us, actually --- on what had happened on the previous night's ep of "The Cosby Show."

I know and respect Bill Cosby. I think it would be hard to write a book about him without dealing with claims by women that he drugged them.

Sep 24, 2014

So far, 'black-ish' strikes me as very dated. Almost like we looked at race ten years ago. Cosby did it better.#blackish

RT @Adam_Longname: Easily @StevenDialWLTX and @CoreyEppsWLTX had the assignment of the night...seeing/meeting Bill Cosby.
