Bill Cosby IS Right: But What Should the Church Be Doing About It?

Bill Cosby Is Right

Bill Cosby Is Right

Several years ago, Dr. Bill Cosby set off a national firestorm with his infamous “Pound Cake” speech that he delivered to the NAACP, wherein he bluntly chastised the African-American community for the high percentages of high school drop-out rates, incarcerations, and unwed births that have led to the breakdown of the traditional black family. A year later, Dr. Michael Eric Dyson penned a best-seller titled Is Bill Cosby Right? (Or has the Black Middle Class Lost its Mind?) that described Cosby’s remarks as a vicious attack on the most vulnerable in our society. Now, author Merisa Parson Davis—a cousin of Cosby—has written a counter-point to Dr. Dyson’s book in her new title, Bill Cosby Is Right: But What Should the Church Be Doing About It? ($20.99, paperback, 978-1-61579-992-3) The author not only defends her relative but also examines the problems facing black America, maintaining that the Bible has the answers to what ails the black family today.

“Dr. Cosby’s words were a wake-up call to the black church,” the author says. “Today, in the age of Obama, we cannot continue to blame white people for everything. While we have an intact, Ivy-league educated African-American two-parent household currently dwelling at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, only 28% of our black children are growing up in the same type of family with their biological mom and dad, who are married to each other. These issues need to be addressed.”

Davis helped create the new African-American Worship Studies department  at Liberty University in Virginia. She is a seminary graduate and currently resides in Lilburn, Georgia with Marc, her husband of 18 years, who owns the Davis State Farm Insurance Agency in Stone Mountain. She is the proud mother of two children, Charissa Joy and Marc Isaac.
