    stupid woman.

    people like jill scott, everything is a race thing to them. they have this mentality that white people are always after them.

    pls white people are not after u, white people have their own shit to deal with, they don’t have time for u. they are busy advancing their own race.

    white people are not holding ur success neither are they jealous of u cause ur a sucessful black man.

    if u commit a crime u should pay for it. whether u a black or white or purple.

    I love many of Bill Cosby works- i see the need for justice for these women; by him being an advocate against rape, sexual abuse and creating a more secure environment for upcoming acts, to thrive on, than giving any of these so called victims money.

      An accused rapist should become an advocate against rape?

      Yes, he is not going getting jail term. If anything he can use his knowledge on rape to defend and protect the vulnerability of any naive or young and upcoming acts. I don’t do my best in condemning people, rape is an action, rapist is a noun( an unrepentant man). I see a remorseful man, a man of many great works- really rapist?!!( isn’t that condemnation). Have you all not stolen-are you not thieves or not?-see stealing is an act, that can be stopped and it does not have to be your reputation.please no condemnation because you are not any better or are you. Yes…he is a celebrity so are you to people that look up to you.

      Just negodu this one. An accused rapist should be an anti-rape advocate? One that denies any wrong-doing, at that?? Shior. Re-read what you just wrote and ask yourself if Bill Cosby’s works would matter to you if your mom or sister was one of his victims. Nonsense.

    That’s why you should wait or have proof before opening your big fat mouth. I expected better of Jill Scott, how could you jump to support somebody you don’t know personally but based on a TV show.

    Abegi! She should have said nothing at all when the allegations came out, talking about proof. Yes, proof is good as long as you plan to wait for it before defending someone like you know them. Before anyone says the same goes for believing all those women without proof, I’ll say right now that I don’t need proof. If more than 10 women have come out to accuse you over a time period spanning DECADES, I will take my chances going with the alleged victims while I wait for the proof that you are a rapist. Dirty old man. He’s just ruined the legacy of The Cosby Show for all the other actors on the show *hiss*
    And where are all those shameless people who were saying they were trying to cause trouble because he was black? You jumped to that with no proof, yet refused to believe multiple women with no proof. As if Beverly Johnson is not black.

    Statue of linitations should be removed for cases such as rape. Bill Cosby should go to jail for violating all those women. Disgusted is mild to describe him, he is a serial rapist to say the least. He is a destroyer- to think he was always busy criticisng the black community publicly and committing such atrocities is just despicable.

    When multiple women come to the fore front, it is hard not to believe there is an iota of truth in some of it. I dont understand how anyone was defending him outrightly when they were not appointed guardian of his penis. Smh.

    This story n outcome is just so sad. was really hoping for a mistake in the allegations against him… really liked him growing up, but if/when confirmed, every crime should be punished regardless…

    As in, I always wondered how several women would come out and accuse you of only same thing…quite glaring and sad. Bill Cosby is arguably a legend in the entertainment world, to ruin all that reputation. In any case, my sympathies lie with all his victims. Must be painful to feel helpless against an obviously highly influential man. Where is that wife of his that was busy defending him?
