In Bill Cosby’s first interview since the sexual assault lawsuits, Cosby seemed to agree with the claim that racism played a part in the sexual assault allegations against him…
Bill Cosby did an interview with Michael Smerconish on SiriusXM and he seemed to agree that racism could have played a role in his sexual assault scandal. Cosby said that there were different “nefarious” “tentacles” and believed that some of it might be connected to racism. When Smerconish mentioned that Cosby’s accusers were both black and white, Cosby accused them to be motivated by whether they could be able to “get back at someone.”
Perhaps this is a good move for Cosby. It seems that blaming racism for one’s actions is becoming more and more acceptable as time goes on. A new report even claims that the London attacker snapped after falling victim to racism. In another instance, a cop from Michigan found out he was 18% black, so he sued the police department and the city for racism. Now, Bill Cosby seems like he wants to blame the sexual assault allegations from dozens of women on some sort of racist conspiracy.

If Bill Cosby don't take his tail somewhere and go sit in some rice. How dare you cite racism to defend sexual assault against black women?

Bill Cosby is now arguing that he's a victim of racism. Pretty sure women of all colors are accusing him of rape…. #CosbyTrial

Bill Cosby says racism could be the reason for allegations.
I don't know if that's true, but I do know you can't spike a drink with racism.
