Why Is The World Now Starting To Turn Against Bill Cosby?
The Washington Post has an article about the takedown of Bill Cosby. More than a few critics of our community are mere opportunists seeking a quick media buck and Cosby became their shill in my opinion.
Folks are questioning why Cosby settled? Is it because he had the big bucks and wanted to retain the reputation that he had made for himself as a scholar / role model and America's "# 1 dad"?.
According to reports, these accusations were in several states (Florida, California, NY, Pennsylvania) and the alleged actions had similar patterns. If any of this would have gone to trial, even if he were not found liable, his reputation would have tarnished beyond repair and that would have been the end of his lucrative Hollywood career.
I'm not knowledgeable enough to comment on the recent allegations against Mr Cosby; however, Dr. Cosby spent an awful amount of energy commenting on the pathologies of the black community that reared and nurtured him. Wished he would have spent more time commenting on its triumphs and achievements and there are many.
