Ever since Bill Cosby was ousted as an alleged sexual predator, the news media and fellow comedians have unceasingly grilled him. Overall, 58 women have come forward to accuse Bill Cosby of sexual assault.
Because Cosby had not said anything since dozens of women accused him of rape and other sex crimes, everyone was listening when he finally decided to break his silence in a lawyer-rehearsed statement.
On Tuesday morning, Cosby stood in front of the media and claimed that racism motivated every one of the 58 women who accused him of sexual crimes. Hear Cosby’s own words below…
Accused of drugging, abusing and raping a total of 58 women – there still might be other victims out there – Bill Cosby has a lot to prove. And now he has decided to echo his daughter’s claim that racism was the main reason Cosby was accused in the first place.
“Racism has played a big role [in the allegations]. The accusations against my father have been one-sided from the beginning. I’ve witnessed my father’s reputation and legendary works be dismissed without any proof,” said Cosby’s daughter Ensa.
During the Tuesday morning interview, Cosby told Sirius XM’s Michael Smerconish that his daughter’s “racism” theory “Could be. Could be” true.
“There are so many tentacles,” he added. “So many different—‘nefarious’ is a great word, And I just truly believe that some of it may very well be that.”
Besides claiming that all 58 women are racist against him, he also said that their timelines were all wrong. In Cosby’s world, it is a “he said, 58 she said” battle of words. But how could nearly five dozen women come together to share the same story?
“So, the piling on, so to speak is a way—and certainly an impressive, impressive way—to get public opinion to come to the other side,” Cosby told Smerconish.
Next month, Bill Cosby is scheduled to go to trial in Pennsylvania. He faces three counts of felony aggravated indecent sexual assault.
Bill Cosby has played the race card before. Last year, his lawyers claimed that because of racism against Bill Cosby, he would not get a fair trial. Here is what his lawyer claimed:
“The Commonwealth chose 13 women to testify against Mr. Cosby. Only one of those women self-identifies as African-American,” Cosby’s legal team stated “The Commonwealth’s choice preys upon subconscious (or perhaps conscious) beliefs that a white woman is less likely to consent to sex with a black man, particularly in the 1960s and 1970s—the time period the Commonwealth chose to focus on.”
But Cosby’s lawyers were not done, they added: “we cannot ignore the unfortunate role that racial bias still plays in our criminal justice system…racial and ethnic disparities [still] exist in both the American juvenile and adult criminal justice systems’ in general, and in Pennsylvania in particular.”
Do you think racism motivated 58 women to accuse Bill Cosby of rape? Or is it just a convenient excuse?
