Bill-Cosby-November-2014-BellaNaija001For weeks the media has been buzzing with several rape allegations made against Bill Cosby, an American dad figure, actor and comedian.

Having declined several opportunities to address the issue, Bill Cosby has finally granted an interview where he around the rape allegations without confirming or denying the 21 allegations that his lawyers have repeatedly called false.

According to Page Six, a Black reporter from the NY Post called the Cosby’s Massachusetts home but instead of denying those accusations, Bill Cosby actually took Black media to task, revealing what he expects of them. He stated “Let me say this. I only expect the black media to uphold the standards of excellence in journalism and when you do that you have to go in with a neutral mind.”

When he was asked how his wife has been through this ordeal he answered Love and the strength of womanhood. Let me say it again, love and the strength of womanhood. And, you could reverse it, the strength of womanhood and love.”

These allegations span at least four decades, beginning in the 1960s.

    He should try and clear up this issue already.

    He should remain quiet instead of trying to maneuver his way out of the situation.

    I really respect his approach on the issue, no need to respond to foolishness. You don’t have to respond to everything thrown at you, silence is golden. If there was any real evidence, a real case will be brought up against him. If he was guilty of these crimes and all the allegations, then he definitely wouldn’t have gotten away with it forty years ago till now. Black men in America just don’t have that kind of “power”. It’s funny how these allegations started to come up again when the Ferguson issue was taking over all social media outlets and when the black president is turning the American economy over for good……God help us all.

      LMFAO. Why don’t you “handle” it for him? He’s unserious. He wants to make this about race. He just officially sank even lower in my eyes.

    Bill COsby i used to be on your side when the allegations first started but from your attitude and inability to deny these allegations your looking very guilty by the day. its about time you come clean or deny the allegations completely and quit messing with our minds.

    It’s hard to envision him raping anyone. He is like a black Leprechaun. You cant get raped by a Leprechaun.

    ‘Black media should remain neutral’…Mr Cosby please stop..you didn’t support black culture,you always had some derogatory remarks on things considered black music and black people..news flash!they don’t support you..you didn’t do much for the society when you were on the ‘come up’,you didn’t empower black comics.The whispers of rape have always trailed your career,so every one is coming out of the wood work to tell their story..tell yours too.

    I think he’s guilty, there is so much corroborating evidence popping up. The guy with receipts. The woman with a picture, and testimonies of other women.

    The mo for this man was the date rape drug. You remember nothing once the deed is done.

    BC is powerful because he is a celebrity. Imagine a young woman trying to make it in her career. Do you think people will believe her if she said she was raped? Hell people don’t believe the women now. And the career of the young girls would have been over.

    All he has to do is take a lie detector test
