Dear Mr. Cosby,
I didn't attend your recent talk in Washington, D.C. at the University of the District of Columbia. I didn't attend because I think I don't need to hear what you are speaking about. As far as I'm concerned, you would be "speaking to the choir."
I understand that question was raised to you at that meeting. You responded by saying that the preacher still continues to preach to the choir. As I understand it, you were saying that you may recognize that the people needing to hear what you are saying are not at your talks, but you keep on talking anyway. I would like to take your analogy a bit further if I may.
At my church, members of the congregation started saying that the pastors' messages were good, but we, the church, needed to go to where the souls that needed healing were at. Now, that is exactly what is happening.
This comes to my point. Why are you not highlighting people and groups who are addressing the problems that you are pointing out?
