Bill Cosby appeared on Meet the Press Sunday morning where he discussed his decision to vote for President-elect Barack Obama. During his appearance, he reveals how historical the mere act of VOTING for a Black man was, as well as Obama’s historic victory. He also reflected on the importance of serving others and how this presidency is paramount to affecting change in all Americans:
?One of the things I?ve heard, is that when a person gives, when a person does a service, that?s there?s something happens to them emotionally.
