Ep 19 Schooled In Scandal
People, many of the same people that believe that every black man in the world is at least potentially a serial rapist, can’t believe Bill Cosby could EVER do something like this. These women are all gold diggers, going after Bill’s money, they say. All their stories match up too closely to not be rehearsed! They took him money, you know they were blackmailing him! This is the standard Cosby Defense, engaged in by Cosby, his lawyer and his ardent defenders. The playbook is as old as time itself, hide behind reputation, point out the accusers behavior as proof of innocence and intimidate the shit out of the victim. It worked for decades, it worked when he was ACTUALLY being sued in 2004–it was in news, but NO ONE talked about it, rumors were whispered in the wind before the lawsuit, but even DURING the lawsuit no one talked about it, a tribute to the power and myth of the Coz. It wasn’t until Hannibal Buress made a joke last year and it went viral that America FINALLY started coming to grips that behind the the ugly sweaters and jello pudding a rapist was giving a smug, deprecating lecture on the state of black men’s pants.You know Bill, best to attend to the open fly in your own pants, before the underwear exposed mote in your neighbor’s.
