No substitute for good parenting 

This may tie to the previous post. Bill Cosby doesn't believe that racial harmony will substitute for good parenting.
Racism continues to exist, he said, but "there is nothing that will defeat parenting." He added: "My call is for more, tighter reins. Know what your
children are doing."

...Cosby told his critics, "Come at me all you want." To those who criticized him for blaming the victim by preaching personal responsibility, he said: "I know a victim when I see one. And so did Christ. And so does God know victims. And so do we all recognize victims. But some victims you can look at and say, 'Get up.'"
