While I would never attempt to place a value on any particular culture, it would seem to me that making one concept or word central to an Ethos elevates that to a level of... hmmmm, would the word be reli-- naaaahhh! No one surely wants to embrace a cult of Nigritude, do they?

Mr. Cosby appears to be simply trying to fill a role he sees as an empty void. Of course, he has taken (earned) a lot of money from Viacom while ignoring their role as distributors of scads of entertainment built around the "N" word. As for the good doctor, a very learned man who could contribute more if he sought out more contemporary allies.

Sadly there is a tendency in mainstream media to trot out the easy spokespersons...perhaps because they are easy to locate, or maybe because producers don't know how to find pertinent fresh faces.

Great discussion. Wish more would weigh in!

says who? If someone wants to embrace a culture of Nigritude, isn't that their right. Isn't that the whole point of the struggle for civil rights? If we are truly to allow people to be whatever positive thing they want to be, we have to allow them the negative as well. The very making of that judgement call is contrary to the motivation.
