We listened to Cosby records in the
mid 60's all the time and laughed
and laughed. We watched him on I Spy,
when there were no black people on
TV, just him. We saw him have the #1
show on TV in the 80's for years.

Who knew he was a sociopath, willing
to ruin the lives of victims and the lives
of his own huge family just so he could
indulge in his twisted fantasies. Blacks
were bursting with pride over Cosby
being a TV star in the 60's. Look what
he turned it into.

For some, the best disguise is becoming the upstanding citizen. And I suppose for a famous celebrity it is the best route for a would be predator.

The cartoon show he had, with Fat
Albert, taught a generation of kids
about right and wrong and family
values. What a fraud Cosby was, it's
scary that people can be two sided
like this. FrG would blame it on god
somehow, I blame it on Cosby's
fame created a sense of entitlement
in his mind. He was a above the law
and morality, god had nothing to do
with it.

He did not turn into anything. He was what he was all along.

I think I only watched a few of those, but I had already rebelled against the cartoon industry for cutting frame rates and ruining everything.

I remember watching Eddie Murphy. He said Cosby called him up and disparaged his act for using fowl language. I believe he said ****off Bill., you got your money doing your act, let me do mine.

Foul not fowl, duh.

That's funny considering Cosby had an outburst after the verdict and called the DA an "asshole."

Jail is too good for the old man.
Make him do some kind of
humiliating public service for
the rest of his life. Or we could
just forgive him like the Xtions
say to do.

No thanks..

This story is in one of his movies, either Raw or Delirious, both of which I've seen several times. As I recall, he said, "Have a Coke and a smile and shut the f### up."

Anyway, many white moral heroes have fallen like Jim Baker and Jimmy Swaggart*. I don't think a racial issue needs to be made out of it.

However, one name you'll never hear even hear a rumor of doing bad is Fred Rogers.
