Nothing has helped change white perceptions of blacks during my lifetime than The Cosby Show. During its eight-year run from 1984 to 1992 and constant reruns on Nick At Nite and elsewhere, Cliff and Clair Huxtable endlessly made the case for responsibility and self development with a mix of humor and sternness.
Since then, asnotes in a terrific piece at The Root, Bill Cosby's politics moved from the small screen to real life.
