U.S.: Kerry to blacks, 'stay on the plantation!'

"John F. Kerry today said entertainer Bill Cosby's recent admonition that black Americans need to take greater personal responsibility for poor education and high crime was 'excessively exclusive' and ignored the government's role in helping minorities.

I understand exactly where Bill is coming from in his comment,' Kerry said, measuring his words carefully as he spoke to a convention for minority journalists in Washington. 'It may be excessively exclusive in the breadth of it, in the sense that it sort of targets just the responsibility side, but that's an important side.'

Sen. John F. Kerry, speaking at a conference of minority journalists, said he was aware of 'the special challenges facing people of color.'

Cosby, a black actor and comedian, has recently harshly criticized the behavior of younger black males and scolded them in interviews for blaming their problems on everyone but themselves. Many blacks were highly critical of Cosby's remarks.

Kerry said government and society are to blame, too, for not providing adequate assistance and protections to minorities. 'We also need to do the things we need to do as a society to empower those people, have plans for those kids, to make the world safer,' Kerry said. 'It's all of us together.'"
What should the descendants do?

Easy. Flush the Johns.
