Bill Cosby’s “A Boy Like Me”

by Carmen Van Kerckhove

I’d never heard of this until I spotted the YouTube video on ExpatJane’s blog, Where The Hell Am I? It’s apparently from a 1968 TV special in which Bill Cosby took a look at the differences between the drawings made by young black children and young white children.

While I see what they’re getting at, I find the psychologist’s assertion that a kid might want to burn a city down when he grows up, pretty alarming. What do you think?
