Just so you don't go through your entire life ignorant, like you seem to want to, YYZ717. Comparing George Carlin to Bill Cosby is a perfect example of comparing apples and oranges.
As was stated earlier when you got your ass handed to you. Bill Cosby has a PhD, which he earned, he was quite successful as a comedian and has not yet pissed away his entire fortune like many people who were famous 20 years ago. He is on the board of many companies, many charities like to have him around, he brings a great combination to the table, one which you do not see much of anymore.. Smarts and fame.
Colin Powell might say some of the same things when he is no longer in a political position. He probably feels much the same way as Dr. Cosby. Thanks to the nature of his job though it would not be a good idea for him to do so at this time.
Same situation as above with Clarence Thomas, Condi Rice, etc. These are all examples of black people that got off their asses and did something with themselves instead of blaming "the man" for their problems growing up.
I am pretty sure George Carlin never finished high school, which is typical of many people in Hollywood. Many of the actors who actually went to college never graduated. The few that did mostly studied theater or drama or some other bullshit this is part of why it is so funny to see them make political speeches, they just don't get it. I am not sure you get it YYZ
, Dr. Cosby has a PhD in education, this requires actual studying (something I get the impression you know little about) regardless of how unmarketable the degree is (probably part of why he took up comedy).
Regardless of all this, to do comedy you have to be pretty damned smart. To do 100% clean comedy like Bill Cosby did, you have to be nearly a genius.
If George Carlin had spent a little less time on drugs and maybe did something in college then he might actually get INVITED (as Bill Cosby was) to speak on such matters.
Things were better when it was two guys in a dorm room.
