While many comics were using the growing freedom of that decade to explore controversial, sometimes risqué, material, Cosby was making his reputation with humorous recollections of his childhood. Many Americans wondered about the absence of race as a topic in Cosby's stories. As Cosby's success grew he had to defend his choice of material regularly; as he argued, "A white person listens to my act and he laughs and he thinks, 'Yeah, that's the way I see it too.' Okay. He's white. I'm Negro. And we both see things the same way. That must mean that we are alike. Right? So I figure this way I'm doing as much for good race relations as the next guy."[13]

Er, not meant as a reply, but since I'm here, I grew up listening to Cosby on LPs; the "Go Karts" bit was my absolute favourite. I really miss those days before I even knew that racism was a thing.

I never got what he was about and was always weary of him as a child, until my dad took the family to see one of his performances.

His story telling is fantastic, I'm not at all sold on "wholesome" entertainment but there was just something universal and connecting about his tales.
