I’m not sure if I can even dignify this fuckery with any serious commentary, so let me just present this as it is: Bill Cosby claims that all the media covering the story about the ENDLESS amount of rapes and sexual assaults he’s been accused of are just racist and that it’s only black people who can truly see him for the innocent man he is and report the facts. Uh…
From Page Six:
Reached at his Massachusetts home, the star declined to address the rape and sex abuse allegations from an ever-growing list of women that now includes supermodel Beverly Johnson.
Instead, Cosby, 77, said that the African-American media — for which this reporter often writes — should be impartial.
“Let me say this. I only expect the black media to uphold the standards of excellence in journalism and when you do that you have to go in with a neutral mind,” Cosby said.
Cosby sounded upbeat on the phone, but said he couldn’t address the specific allegations.
He did, however, wax poetic when asked how his wife of more than a half-century, Camille Cosby, was holding up under the strain of the allegations.
“Love and the strength of womanhood,” he said. “Let me say it again, love and the strength of womanhood. And, you could reverse it, the strength of womanhood and love.”
Then Cosby cut off the conversation. “They don’t want me talking to the media,” he said.
I mean… REALLY? So… if you’re white you’re automatically going to want to crucify Bill Cosby for being a rapist because he’s black? And only black people can see that a fellow black man isn’t really guilty of the DOZENS of cases against him – including one BY A BLACK WOMAN? And let’s be clear here: Beverly Johnson is NOT Bill Cosby’s only black victim – she’s just the first black victim to come forward and speak out against him (and I’d recommend reading her op-ed in Vanity Fair on the subject as she goes into how race plays into this whole matter).
Frankly, there are Bill Cosby apologists of every race and background. People who are so attached to his Dr. Huxtable persona that they’re unable to see the ugly man behind the character. By using race when it’s convenient for him, Bill Cosby is trying to make the media afraid of reporting on this case lest they come off as “racist”. He knows what he’s doing here, believe me. (And lest we forget how many times Bill has looked down his nose at many of the same black people he’s calling to action now for being uneducated and basically the scum under his shoe.) But race has NOTHING to do with the horrendous acts he’s committed. White, black, any ethnicity – rape and sexual assault are disgusting crimes that should be persecuted and Bill Cosby deserves to lose absolutely every single showbiz thing he’s built.
