Bill Cosby admitted under oath he got Quaaludes to give women for sexPage 3 of 14    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14)
Certainly. You know that is upsetting for me , Dee. I'm just like your Mother. Ahem , however what is more upsetting is the total disrepect for women as shown by such a "canonized" individual. We see this with the "media annointed" on a daily basis. As mentioned before , what went wrong? OJ and cool Cos were hand picked to prove folks like me wrong. Hmmmmm.

Very typical for some to canonize the dregs of society. So far ; guys like St. OJ and St. Cos are poster children for the multi cultural agenda. Gee , FX , how's that workin?


Also very typical that racist little b*tches who are scared of everything that is not white to hide behind a faceless profile, so how is that working out for you?

^ Should peaceful discourse be touted as self hatred? Sunshine , certainly both Blacks and Whites are witnessing a decline of the quality of Western Society. Can you truthfully say the multi cultural global agenda has been a success?

I don't hate anyone. Even myself. I have to work on the superiority,though.
I do pity people who have so much venom that they can't bear to hear the opinions of others that differ from theirs without condescension and derision.
Come to think of it, what I like about Biala is that even though we disagree on things, he never calls names or insults unless you insult him first. And ,best of all, he never tries to dictate what I, as a black woman, should feel, as a black woman, because I am a black woman. Beautiful

As someone else said:

""""No decent person believes that the color of your skin should limit what you’re allowed to achieve or what you’re allowed to earn. So why do some liberals believe that the color of your skin should limit what you’re allowed to think? When people of color refuse to think the way they’re “supposed to” think, when they follow their conscience to conservatism, do they forfeit their right to be treated with dignity and respect? The obvious moral answer is “no,” but some liberals don’t seem to get that. And it is particularly troubling when liberals attempt to enforce racial groupthink in communities that are not their own.""""

Thanks , Dee , for the kind words. Live and let Live. No one dictates. The only function of government should be border protection. From the sound of the afore mentioned quote ; you won't be misled or weaponized either.

Okay... I'm back. The following is a lot to read. My apologies!! But, it's all good stuff taken from the other site I mentioned.
These two below are the latest posts and the following are bits and pieces I've taken from the 30 page long thread all about Cosby.

('Bill Cosby Wants His Hush Money Back -- Vulture')
Bill Cosby is now asking a court for "sanctions" against Andrea Constand because she and her lawyers "are intent on reneging on what they promised — confidentiality and finality," reports the New York Daily News. Constand originally filed a civil suit against Cosby in 2005 after the Pennsylvania D.A. declined to pursue criminal charges. While they eventually settled in an undisclosed agreement, court documents obtained by the AP earlier this July contain an admission from Cosby that he had sex with women after giving them quaaludes. Cosby accuses Constand and her lawyers of helping the New York Times obtain the full deposition, thus resulting in a "colossal breach" of their confidentiality agreement. As a result, Constand may have to "disgorge some or all of the money paid to her by defendant as part of the settlement."

In the filing, Cosby also refers to quaaludes as "disco biscuits" and argues that the extramarital affairs and drugs were just a part of the times. "There are countless tales of celebrities, music stars and wealthy socialites in the 1970s willingly using Quaaludes for recreational purposes and during consensual sex," the filing states. The lawyer for Therese Serignese, who was a Jane Doe in Constand's original suit, said, "It's laughable that the Cosby team is going to rely on the 'sex, drugs and rock and roll' defense as a response to the abuse allegations of the women."

In other news, the California Supreme Court ruled that Judy Huth and Gloria Allred's civil suit alleging Cosby sexually assaulted Huth when she was a 15-year-old girl at the Playboy Mansion in 1974 can move ahead.

Atlanta College Ends Professorship Tied To Bill Cosby;
http://www.buzzfeed.com/jimdalrymple...by#.db4KmnBLwX

Cosby and his wife donated $20 million to Spelman in 1988.Both of Cosby’s daughters attended Spelman. Other colleges that have distanced themselves from Cosby amid the sexual assault allegations include the Berklee College of Music, the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and Temple University.

*******************

-Here's a link to a 2014 article that lists a timeline of the charges;
http://www.vulture.com/2014/09/timeline-of-the-abuse-charges-against-cosby.html

-and an article detailing another "attack" by The Icredible Hulk's wife;
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2842678/Bill-Cosby-used-friend-court-wife-Incredible-Hulk-star-Lou-Ferrigno-set-comic-home-attacked-Camille-Cosby-left-room.html#ixzz3JytjpYeg


-Another interesting article;
(Gregory Freeman, “When a ‘Hero’ Isn’t: Tyson Forfeits Respect, Credibility,” St. Louis Post-Dispatch, June 25, 1995)”
In 1992, Cosby’s drug addicted daughter, Erinn, claimed that Tyson once tried to rape her after a night club party in 1989.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch discussed how Bill Cosby dealt with the accusations in 1995.

“It’s not enough for some that Bill Cosby’s daughter, Erinn, has said that Tyson once invited her to his home after meeting her at a nightclub, then knocked her to the floor and tried to rape her. She told her parents, who got an agreement from him to get therapy. Tyson later reneged, but Erinn Cosby had to go through counseling for a year after the experience.



As for the son, I could be wrong but I still wonder if there is a connection. Below details how he was murdered

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2757889/Bill-Cosby-vile-temper-punched-comic-Tommy-Smothers-hard-partying-philanderer-caught-love-child-scandal-cost-marriage-reveals-new-book.html#ixzz3DW51eDZe
Ennis was out in LA. He had been to a party where he was discussing learning disabilities with Stephanie Crane, daughter of a comedy writer, and she suggested they continue the discussion at her home in Sherman Oaks, in the San Fernando Valley.
Ennis was minutes from his destination when he had a flat tire in the $130,000 Mercedes 600 SL convertible he was driving, his mother’s car. Camille had warned him not to drive that car because of the epidemic of car-jackings in Los Angles at the time, as well racial profiling by LA cops suspicious of a young black man driving a luxury vehicle.
Ennis called Stephanie on the phone to advise her of the flat. She showed up wearing a lavish mink coat only to be confronted while in the car by a thug brandishing a gun. She stepped on the accelerator and left the scene quickly – but not before seeing Ennis lying on the ground with a single bullet wound in his head.
‘Instead of a freak accident or a targeted racial killing, the clues suggested, Ennis Cosby’s murder may have been a tragic case of mistaken identity by a**** thug hoping to rob two wealthy parties in a drug deal’,


....when Cosby's son Ennis was murdered, an American tabloid offered a $100,000 reward that successfully led to the apprehension and conviction of the murderer. Two days after Ennis Cosby's death, 22-year-old Autumn Jackson and a male companion were arrested in Los Angeles after allegedly flying there to extort $24 million from the elder Cosby in exchange for not revealing that he was her father, following an extramarital affair with her mother, Shawn Upshaw, in the mid-'70s. In the ensuing trial, Cosby admitted to the affair and to having paid Upshaw $100,000 over the intervening decades and set up a trust fund in her name, but denied he was Autumn's father. Jackson refused to take a paternity test, and was eventually convicted of extortion and sentenced to 22 months in prison.


Cosby is all kinds of fukery imo
You know, I have to give comedian Hannibal Buress kudos for ripping the lid off this whole thing because now that these women have finally broken their silence which can never be a good thing. Keeping in painful/embarrassing secrets inside.
The thing that gets me is that people are finally listening.................after a man speaks up.
Had it been a women, she would be piled in with the rest and dismissed as hearsay. It's almost ludicrous how women are not believed as much as a man. For instance, when discussing rape in other threads, we are dismissed as fanatical, exaggerators, *eyes roll and we are ignored. Ack... but that's another subject. Point is... now the scab is off and Cosby can no longer cover up and lie.
A sidenote, the site I refer to questioned whether Cosby is a rapist back in 2007 so this isn't a current thing.
This mofo.. I hope his ass is raped in jail............if he ever makes it to one *cue crickets

Thing is, Dee, that plenty of liberals put their lives on the line, right there with blacks during the sixties, and even earlier. So, yah, some do feel a right to comment. If you'd care to point out any conservatives on those marches, or voter registration drives, I'd surely love to hear about them.

I love everything about this post and completely agree. It's sickening seeing how racist the liberals actually are and yet, seem oblivious to it. As Dr. Ben Carson has said "white liberals are the most racist people ....."


Well of course you love it, as it is not based on any facts and is nothing but derp based lies.

So what ever you do, if someone asks you for just one example that proves your point, please just run away and hide so we know you truly are just that simple and easily influenced.

The total contempt liberals have for the white working class in the uk knows no bounds. They are petrified of the day the kickback comes and they receive what is due them.
As this article states...

"The rationale behind it is evidently based on the classic tactic of American left-winger Saul Alinsky, ‘Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon’, or, as the Indymedia writer put it, ‘the best way to beat these pissed-up fascist losers is to take the bloody piss’. But, through this tactic of ridicule, these anti-EDL campaigners are actually revealing the depth of their contempt for people they see as the stupid, uneducated, inarticulate white working classes.

As I have argued previously on spiked, as the British National Party (BNP) leader Nick Griffin attempts to make his party more respectable, replacing skinheads and bovver boots with suits, the inarticulate EDL ‘thugs’ - complete with cropped haircuts and tracksuits - provide liberals with a more recognisably ‘thuggish’ enemy. If the EDL didn’t exist, one suspects that liberals would be busily trying to invent it."
http://www.spiked-online.com/newsite/article/10375#.VbYl1uBwZcs

It makes me chuckle seeing wealthy comfortably off white liberals taking over black grievances because apparently 'they' know better.
How patronising and condescending is that?

Still i live safe in the knowledge that when the day of retribution comes all working class of all races will exact their revenge on those of
a liberal persuasion.

Remember folks white liberals and the friendless franks of this world need racial strife so they can line their pockets by playing the istismophobic cards.

There are now 46 women who have come forward publicly to accuse Cosby of rape or sexual assault; the 35 women here are the accusers who were willing to be photographed and interviewed by New York. The group, at present, ranges in age from early 20s to 80 and includes supermodels Beverly Johnson and Janice Dickinson alongside waitresses and Playboy bunnies and journalists and a host of women who formerly worked in show business. Many of the women say they know of others still out there who’ve chosen to remain silent.

BUT I GUESS THEY ARE JUST MAKING SHIT UP ON THE INTERNET.

http://nymag.com/thecut/2015/07/bill-cosbys-accusers-speak-out.html

stunning article. posting the 'testimony' part of the article below. go to the URL for the full article on this vile waste of human flesh.


“My agent said we’ve been contacted by a really, really big person in the entertainment industry who’s interested in mentoring promising young talent. I find out it’s Bill Cosby. I had the understanding I was going to be receiving private acting coaching from him. This was the opportunity of a lifetime. A driver would pick me up, my agent was paying for it. That made it all very, very professional. The door opens, and there stands Cosby. He’s in his sweats and very casual, very friendly. I had a monologue prepared. He seemed unimpressed. He said, ‘Let’s try a cold read,’ so he pulls out a script. The scene was set in a bar; the character was someone who was inebriated. He poured a glass of white wine. And he said, use this as a prop — now, that means you’re going to have to sip on it, of course. I really don’t remember much, except waking up in his bedroom. He was naked, and he was forcing himself into my mouth.” —Heidi Thomas


“I was introduced to Bill Cosby through my modeling agent. She said that Cosby wanted to see me. Which I thought was obviously for the show. I was told there was going to be a dinner, and when I got there, no one ever arrived. He asked me if I wanted a glass of wine; I took a few sips. It had a horrible taste. And I started not feeling well. He helped me up by my underarms with both hands. He walked me into the next room, where there was a mirror on the wall, and he told me to look at myself. Something was wrong with me. And then he took my right hand, and he put it behind my back. I remember seeing semen on the floor. And I felt some liquid on my hand. That was when I knew something sexual was going on.” —Jewel Allison


“He took my roommate and me out to dinner. It was this new hip steak restaurant on the strip near the Whiskey a Go Go called Sneaky Pete’s. He was chatting her up and trying to charm her. And he reached across and put a pill next to my wineglass and said, ‘Here, this will make you feel better,’ and he gave her one. I wasn’t really thinking. My son had recently died. I thought, Great, me feel better? You bet. So I took the pill and washed it down with some red wine. And then he reached across and put another pill in my mouth and gave her one. Just after I took the second pill, my face was, like, face-in-plate syndrome, and I just said, ‘I wanna go home.’ He said he would drive us home. We went up this elevator. I sat down, and lay my head back, just fighting nausea. I looked around and he was sitting next to my roommate on the love seat with this very predatory look on his face. She was completely unconscious. I could hear the words in my head, but I couldn’t form words with my mouth, because I was so drugged out. He got up and came over, and he sat down and unzipped his fly. He had me give him oral sex, and then he stood me up, turned me over, did me doggy style, and walked out. Just as he got to the door, I said, ‘How do we get out of here, how do we get home?’ And he said, ‘Call a cab.’ ” —Victoria Valentino


“Bill had been a friend. I had had dinner with his wife on one or two different occasions, I had worked with him, I had known him for many, many years, and he never made a pass at me. So when this happened to me, I was really, really shocked. I just couldn’t understand what was wrong with him. Had he lost his mind? When I came out of the bathroom, he said to me, ‘Okay, come on, let’s go. They’re waiting for us.’ He was behaving like a person that I had never met before in my life.” —Kathy McKee


“At 17, my agent introduced me to Bill Cosby, who was going to mentor me and take me to the next level of my career. Over the course of the next year, I was drugged half the time when I was with him and would come out of a delusional experience going, ‘Whoa, what was that?’ He would say, ‘Well, I needed to undress you and wash your clothes because you got drunk and made a fool of yourself.’ Do you remember the Jaycee Dugard story? She pretty much could have climbed over the fence any time she wanted to but was just so broken down and couldn’t think straight. I felt like a prisoner; I felt I was kidnapped and hiding in plain sight. I could have walked down any street of Manhattan at any time and said, ‘I’m being raped and drugged by Bill Cosby,’ but who the hell would have believed me? Nobody, nobody. I was invited down to Atlantic City to see his show and had a very confusing night where I was completely drugged and my luggage was missing. When I called the concierge to find out where my luggage was, Cosby went ballistic. He slammed the phone down and said, ‘What the hell are you doing, letting the whole hotel know I have a 19-year-old girl in my hotel suite?’ The next morning, he summoned me down to his room and yelled at me that I needed to have discretion. He threw me down on the bed and he put his forearm under my throat. He straddled me, and he took his belt buckle off. The clanking of the belt buckle, I’ll never forget.” —Barbara Bowman


“I had a terrible headache, and I said, ‘Bill, do you have some Tylenol? I have a mother of a headache.’ And he said to me, ‘I have something stronger.’ And I said, ‘You know I don’t do drugs.’ He said, ‘You’re one of my best friends. Would I hurt you?’ And I believed him. All I remember is taking the pill; I don’t remember going to bed. But I do remember waking up in a fog and opening my eyes, and I had no clothes on, and there was Bill’s friend totally naked in bed with me. He started to laugh and smile, and he said, ‘Oh, did you have a good time?’ I said, ‘What the fuck happened? Do you always eff a dead person?’ I got my clothes on and I walked out. And Bill said, ‘Where are you going?’ I said, ‘What the eff did you give me?’ He said, ‘Oh, you had a bad headache, you were in so much pain. I gave you a Quaalude.’ I was hurt with Bill more than angry at his friend. Bill let him take advantage of me. That kills me. That’s why I know the stories of what he did to the other women are true, because if he didn’t have the respect for me, who was really a close friend, then he could do that to anybody he didn’t know very well.” —Joyce Emmons


---------------
“I went online one morning, just to check my email. The Yahoo page came up, and there was something about Cosby, this thing with Hannibal Buress. And all of a sudden, something just hit me. Anger. Son of a bitch! You know, a woman can be not believed for 30 years. But it takes one man? To make a joke about it? That fucking pissed me off so bad. Suddenly I’m thinking, Who do I contact?” —Victoria Valentino

Never liked him, I don't know what is the magic number of women to come forward before people will believe he is a rapist and an abuser of Power.
He'll never go to jail - plus now some forgive him because of his age. Some probably because of his sweaters *shrug*
He has to look in the mirror each morning, wonder what he sees?

The sad part about America's rapist, is that he will never be prosecuted for the abuse, and his victims will not have an opportunity to have their day in court.

You know how to a young boy with a hammer everything looks like a nail? To some Americans (and one Scot) every issue is the fault of liberals and a reason to bash them. You just have to look at it like a cult.

Bill Cosby Drugged Me. This Is My Story.'

Like most Americans, I spent the 60s, 70s, and part of the 80s in awe of Bill Cosby and his total domination of popular culture. He was the first African American to star in a dramatic television series, I Spy, a show my family in Buffalo, New York, always watched. Cosby cut a striking figure on-screen then. He was funny, smart, and even elegant—all those wonderful things many white Americans didn’t associate with people of color. In fact, as I thought of going public with what follows, a voice in my head kept whispering, “Black men have enough enemies out there already, they certainly don’t need someone like you, an African American with a familiar face and a famous name, fanning the flames.”

Imagine my joy in the mid-80s when an agent called to say Bill Cosby wanted me to audition for a role on the The Cosby Show. Cosby played an obstetrician, and he sometimes used models to portray pregnant women sitting in his office waiting room. It was a small part with one or two speaking lines at most, but I wanted in.

I was in the midst of an ugly custody battle for my only child. I needed a big break badly and appearing on The Cosby Show seemed like an excellent way of getting Hollywood’s attention. I’d appeared in one or two movies already, but my phone wasn’t exactly ringing off the hook with acting jobs.

Cosby’s handlers invited me to a taping of the show so I could get the lay of the land and an idea of what my role required. After the taping I met all the cast and then met with Cosby in his office to talk a bit about the hell I’d been through in my marriage. He appeared concerned and then asked what I wanted from my career going forward. He seemed genuinely interested in guiding me to the next level. I was on cloud nine.

I brought my daughter to the next taping I attended. Afterward, Cosby asked if I could meet him at his home that weekend to read for the part. My ex-husband had primary custody of my daughter at the time, and I usually spent my weekends with her. Cosby suggested I bring her along, which really reeled me in. He was the Jell-O Pudding man; like most kids, my daughter loved him. When my daughter and I visited Cosby’s New York brownstone, his staff served us a delicious brunch. Then he gave us a tour of the exceptional multi-level home.

Looking back, that first invite from Cosby to his home seems like part of a perfectly laid out plan, a way to make me feel secure with him at all times. It worked like a charm. Cosby suggested I come back to his house a few days later to read for the part. I agreed, and one late afternoon the following week I returned. His staff served a light dinner and Bill and I talked more about my plans for the future.

After the meal, we walked upstairs to a huge living area of his home that featured a massive bar. A huge brass espresso contraption took up half the counter. At the time, it seemed rare for someone to have such a machine in his home for personal use.

Cosby said he wanted to see how I handled various scenes, so he suggested that I pretend to be drunk. (When did a pregnant woman ever appear drunk on The Cosby Show? Probably never, but I went with it.)

As I readied myself to be the best drunk I could be, he offered me a cappuccino from the espresso machine. I told him I didn’t drink coffee that late in the afternoon because it made getting to sleep at night more difficult. He wouldn’t let it go. He insisted that his espresso machine was the best model on the market and promised I’d never tasted a cappuccino quite like this one.

It’s nuts, I know, but it felt oddly inappropriate arguing with Bill Cosby so I took a few sips of the coffee just to appease him.

Now let me explain this: I was a top model during the 70s, a period when drugs flowed at parties and photo shoots like bottled water at a health spa. I’d had my fun and experimented with my fair share of mood enhancers. I knew by the second sip of the drink Cosby had given me that I’d been drugged—and drugged good.

[Editor’s Note: Cosby’s attorneys did not respond to Vanity Fair’s requests for comment.]

My head became woozy, my speech became slurred, and the room began to spin nonstop. Cosby motioned for me to come over to him as though we were really about to act out the scene. He put his hands around my waist, and I managed to put my hand on his shoulder in order to steady myself.

As I felt my body go completely limp, my brain switched into automatic-survival mode. That meant making sure Cosby understood that I knew exactly what was happening at that very moment.

“You are a mother****er aren’t you?”

That’s the exact question I yelled at him as he stood there holding me, expecting me to bend to his will. I rapidly called him several more “mother****ers.” By the fifth, I could tell that I was really pissing him off. At one point he dropped his hands from my waist and just stood there looking at me like I’d lost my mind.

What happened next is somewhat cloudy for me because the drug was in fuller play by that time. I recall his seething anger at my tirade and then him grabbing me by my left arm hard and yanking all 110 pounds of me down a bunch of stairs as my high heels clicked and clacked on every step. I feared my neck was going to break with the force he was using to pull me down those stairs. It was still late afternoon and the sun hadn’t completely gone down yet. When we reached the front door, he pulled me outside of the brownstone and then, with his hand still tightly clenched around my arm, stood in the middle of the street waving down taxis.

When one stopped, Cosby opened the door, shoved me into it and slammed the door behind me without ever saying a word. I somehow managed to tell the driver my address and before blacking out, I looked at the cabbie and asked, as if he knew: “Did I really just call Bill Cosby ‘a mother****er’?”

Why that was even a concern of mine after what I’d just been through is still a mystery to me? I think my mind refused to process it.

The next day I woke up in my own bed after falling into a deep sleep that lasted most of the day. I had no memory of how I got into my apartment or into my bed, though most likely my doorman helped me out.

I sat in there still stunned by what happened the night before, confused and devastated by the idea that someone I admired so much had tried to take advantage of me, and used drugs to do so. Had I done something to encourage his actions?

In reality, I knew I’d done nothing to encourage Cosby but my mind kept turning with question after question. It took a few days for the drug to completely wear off and soon I had to get back to work. I headed to California for an acting audition. Not long after arriving, I decided I needed to confront Cosby for my own sanity’s sake. I thought if I just called him, he would come clean and explain why he’d done what he had.

I dialed the private number he’d given me expecting to hear his voice on the other end. But he didn’t answer. His wife did. A little shocked, I quickly identified myself to her in the most respectful way possible and then asked to speak to Bill. Camille politely informed me that it was very late, 11:00 P.M. and that they were both in bed together.


I apologized for the late call and explained that I was in Los Angeles and had forgotten about the three-hour time difference. I added that I would call back tomorrow.

I didn’t call back the next day or any other day after that. At a certain moment it became clear that I would be fighting a losing battle with a powerful man so callous he not only drugged me, but he also gave me the number to the bedroom he shared with his wife. How could I fight someone that boldly arrogant and out of touch? In the end, just like the other women, I had too much to lose to go after Bill Cosby. I had a career that would no doubt take a huge hit if I went public with my story and I certainly couldn’t afford that after my costly divorce and on going court fees.


For a long time I thought it was something that only happened to me, and that I was somehow responsible. So I kept my secret to myself, believing this truth needed to remain in the darkness. But the last four weeks have changed everything, as so many women have shared similar stories, of which the press have belatedly taken heed.

Still I struggled with how to reveal my big secret, and more importantly, what would people think when and if I did? Would they dismiss me as an angry black woman intent on ruining the image of one of the most revered men in the African American community over the last 40 years? Or would they see my open and honest account of being betrayed by one of the country’s most powerful, influential, and beloved entertainers?

As I wrestled with the idea of telling my story of the day Bill Cosby drugged me with the intention of doing God knows what, the faces of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Eric Garner, and countless other brown and black men took residence in my mind.

As if I needed to be reminded. The current plight of the black male was behind my silence when Barbara Bowman came out to tell the horrific details of being drugged and raped by Cosby to the Washington Post in November. And I watched in horror as my longtime friend and fellow model Janice Dickinson was raked over the coals for telling her account of rape at Cosby’s hands. Over the years I’ve met other women who also claim to have been violated by Cosby. Many are still afraid to speak up. I couldn’t sit back and watch the other women be vilified and shamed for something I knew was true.

When I sat down to write my memoir in 2013, I pondered if I should include my Cosby experience. I didn't want to get involved in a he-said/she-said situation. Now that other women have come forward with their nightmare stories, I join them.

Finally, I reached the conclusion that the current attack on African American men has absolutely nothing to do at all with Bill Cosby. He brought this on himself when he decided he had the right to have his way with who knows how many women over the last four decades. If anything, Cosby is distinguished from the majority of black men in this country because he could depend on the powers that be for support and protection.

I had to use my voice as a sister, mother, and grandmother, and as a woman who knows that, according to the C.D.C., nearly one in five women has been sexually assaulted at some time in her life, and that women of color face an even higher attack rate.

In part because of what happened to me nearly 30 years ago, I have agreed to serve on the board of the Barbara Sinatra Center for Abused Children. The experience has been as humbling as it has been rewarding. Many of the young children I work with have been sexually abused and I watch in awe of their bravery as they work to recover and feel better.

How could I be any less brave?

Told you
He went after ANY women. I still can't believe his wife just sits there. I get it she's from a prim and proper religious family and thanks to Cosby has become used to the money and lavish lifestyle but SHEESH woman, one can only be a fool for so damn long and a fool she is.

Oh yes...Meaning the model....Beverly Johnson...She came forward months ago.....she was on a program (can't remember) and told her story.
In my eyes....she was very credible. I believed it before because of the quantity coming forward....very brave women...in my eyes.
Many were questioning Angie****nson because of her bizarre behaviour and previous drug use.
I heard there are a few civil suits filed against him.
He may not spend a minute in jail but let him lose a few million....I just don't understand her but she wasn't the
only one fooled...if she even was.

^^^^ I love everything about this post and completely agree. It's sickening seeing how racist the liberals actually are and yet, seem oblivious to it. As Dr. Ben Carson has said "white liberals are the most racist people ....."



It makes me chuckle seeing wealthy comfortably off white liberals taking over black grievances because apparently 'they' know better.
How patronising and condescending is that?


^ get the **** off your soapboxes and start your own thread/s, kind of a head scratcher why you both and others
keep trying to modify the subject/thread and don't even know what y'all are changing it to. . is it the equivalent
of mirror licking?

ahhh.... well that dashed any hope that she would stop being so stupid and senile

As for****nson, she's been telling what happened for years, there's a bit on the Howard Stern show where she warns that Cosby is an evil man but no one believed her. She penned what happened in her bio but she was forced to remove the name.
It's only now she able to put two and two together for everyone.
