Cosby’s Lawyers Play the Race Card

Admittedly with the number of white boys recently receiving a hand slap or a pat on the back for raping women – there is the opportunity to cloud the issue.

Cosby’s behind belongs in jail.

The fact that some of the courts have turned college campuses in America into “Free Rape Zones”, speaks more to that “white boy privilege” dysfunction in our courts system than our just and deep moral outrage.

Cosby’s case is rare in America, where money buts you out of almost any crime in the pay for play “Justice” system. I mean Roger Ailes cut to the chase and wrote a $20 million check to keep his as out of court, and possibly jail.

Despite the corruption of the system – Race isn’t the sole reason Cosby is being prosecuted, Our righteous indignation should be reserved for those who have corrupted the system of justice on the basis of race…Not just the likely guilty.

Bill Cosby’s lawyers claim racism for first time

Bill Cosby has long preached the gospel of personal responsibility to fellow blacks, irritating those who fault racism for holding the community back.

But now lawyers for the 79-year-old comedian have suggested for the first time that racial bias is to blame as Cosby faces the prospect of 13 women testifying in court that he drugged and molested them. Twelve of them are white.

Cosby’s legal team raised the issue on the courthouse steps Tuesday after a hearing in his criminal sex assault case in suburban Philadelphia. Whether they intend to bring up race in the courtroom remains to be seen. At a minimum, some legal experts said the defense is trying to influence potential jurors.

“I think that you’ve always got to have in mind who’s your jury pool,” said Los Angeles lawyer Mark Geragos, whose clients have included Michael Jackson. “That’s probably the end game.”

Or the lawyers may have been dutifully carrying out Cosby’s instructions: “It could well be they are expressing the concerns of the client,” said Carl Douglas, who was on O.J. Simpson’s legal Dream Team.

Cosby is set to go on trial next June on charges he drugged and sexually violated Temple University employee Andrea Constand at his home in 2004. He could get 10 years in prison if convicted.

In bringing up race, his legal team took aim at celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred, who represents about half the women who have agreed to testify against Cosby.

Allred “calls herself a civil rights attorney, but her campaign against Mr. Cosby builds on racial bias and prejudice that can pollute the court of public opinion,” the lawyers said in a statement.

“Mr. Cosby is no stranger to discrimination and racial hatred. When the media repeats her accusations – with no evidence, no trial and no jury – we are moved backwards as a country and away from the America that our civil rights leaders sacrificed so much to create.”

Allred called the tactic “desperate.”

“It is ironic that a man who has chastised the black poor for making race an excuse would now have to lean upon that as part of his defense strategy,” said Georgetown University sociology professor Michael Eric Dyson, a black scholar and author of the book “Is Bill Cosby Right? Or Has the Black Middle Class Lost Its Mind?”

“If you’re more cynical, you might say, ‘What manipulation of racial rhetoric in defense of the indefensible,’” Dyson said Thursday….Read the rest here

If She Were Black…

Hmmm… Unwed mother of two, by two different men. Right about now, if she were black the racist right would be singing the “personal responsibility”, “welfare queen” chorus. The other Sno’ Ho’…Indeed.

Bristol Palin’s hateful hypocrisy: She’s now a mother of two, but still the biggest child in the family

It must be very strange to be a former highly-compensated abstinence spokeswoman who is now the never-married mother of two children by two different fathers. It must take a fair degree of mental reconciling to be closely aligned with a political party that is so consistently and so vehemently disparaging of single mothers — well, at least when they’re not the daughters of their own former governors. But Bristol Palin somehow makes it look easy.

On December 24, the 25-year-old “Dancing With the Stars” veteran announced she’d given birth the day before to daughter Sailor Grace, and that “my heart just doubled.” Saying that “our family couldn’t be more complete,” she also shared a photo of her Tripp — who turned seven this week — meeting his baby sister.

The whole family seems delighted at the new arrival — Palin’s mother Sarah took time out of her burgeoning comedy career to share a message declaring Sailor “The best gift ever!” and saying, “Thank you, Bristol, for your strength and good heart and your love of life. The most important people in Bristol’s life were there to witness the miracle of Sailor Grace Palin’s arrival last night. Thank you for sharing the miracle with Piper, Marina, and me, Bri! And we thank Todd for taking care of the rest of the family during this most precious beginning of a great new chapter!”

Though Bristol’s ex-fiancé wasn’t included in Sarah Palin’s litany of her daughter’s “most important people” or given a last name credit, Dakota Meyer seemed to confirm his paternity on Christmas Eve with a tweet saying, “Best Christmas present ever!! I couldn’t be more proud of this little blessing.”

Bristol Palin is likely going to have her hands full for some time now, raising her two young children. But wouldn’t it terrific if now that’s got a daughter of her own, she could spend a little time to finally get more realistic about the world our girls and women live in?

I know it’s a long shot. When she announced, back in June, that she was expecting, Palin knew she was in for a heap of accusations of hypocrisy, and she stated firmly, “I do not want any lectures and I do not want any sympathy.” She also admitted, “I know this has been, and will be, a huge disappointment to my family, to my close friends, and to many of you….Tripp, this new baby, and I will all be fine, because God is merciful.” It was a plea for compassion — but one undermined when she abruptly turned around and lashed out at “these giddy a$$holes” and insisted, “I have never been a paid ‘abstinence spokesperson.’”

That’s a claim that seems to ignore her gig with the Candie’s Foundation and her speaker’s bureau listing, which put “abstinence” as her primary topic. Palin then soon after wrote a straight up ignorant, facts-challenged blog post about a Washington state birth control program. In August, she unsurprisingly jumped on the anti Planned Parenthood juggernaut, with a post about “dead babies.” And just earlier this month, she listed “Eleven selfish excuses women give to justify ending their pregnancies.” Her Instagram, meanwhile, contains jokey retweets imploring poor people, “Instead of burning the American flag, why don’t you burn your welfare checks?”

How does she have time to pick so many fights and spew so many half truths while raising a family? On Monday morning, she found time to post a video on Facebook mocking Kwanzaa. Talk about leaning in.

In spite of the obstacles she’s faced, in spite of the unjust shaming for her private life, Palin seems resolutely determined to demand she not be judged while judging others. She seems fine with ignoring how unsustainable the abstinence she built a tidy side-career preaching is. She is no longer the teen America first met when her mother was on the campaign trail. She is a woman and a mother of two. Maybe now it’s time for her to grow up.
