I believe that the MSM regularly conducts verbal lynchings of famous Black men

and that stories like these are Stories (i.e. something that people read and discuss) because they are about a Black man and they further the Big Lie that all Black men are hypersexed subhuman animals who must be controlled, denied an education, slapped with drug use convictions and kept in minimum wage no benefits jobs for the protection of society and the greater good (i.e. profits) of their employers. That is my belief. And here is my evidence

1. J. Edgar Hoover's efforts to sexualize MLK in order to end his career as a political activist.

http://www.al.com/news/index.ssf/2014/11/j_edgar_hoover_to_martin_luthe.html

2. Jack Johnson, boxer. They could not knock him out in the ring, so they filed Mann Act charges.

http://www.pbs.org/unforgivableblackness/about/

3. Brian Banks

Years later, Banks said that his lawyer advised him to take the plea deal, saying, "When you go into that courtroom, the jury is going to see a big black teenager and you're automatically going to be assumed guilty."


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brian_Banks_(American_football)

4. Tiger Woods

5. Michael Jackson

6. Scottsboro Boys: That was such a Great Story that when one of the accusers recanted in court, the white jury voted to convict anyway. They liked the Story better than the truth.

Oh, and Black women are portrayed as hypersexual, too.

2. Timing is suspect, I'll give you that.

Tiger Woods went down in Nov. '09, right after Obama won his Nobel Prize in Oct. '09. Seemed a little suspect to me. This time Obama issues a game-changing EO on immigration, and delivers a barn-burner telling the Koch congress to f#ck off, and kaboom, down goes Cosby. Hmm.

5. Both white and black celebrities get into scandals like this

I think in our racist society we tend to make a bigger deal about it when the person is black. It's just as wrong no matter who does it but it seems to end up being more newsworthy or something, or at least it ends up with more attention, when the person is black. Not always - Jerry Sandusky, Woody Allen maybe? Not sure how much attention he got outside of DU. It does seem like the ones where the scandal becomes huge are often people of color. Or maybe when white celebrities are accused, they're more able to shrug allegations off? I'm not sure what's up specifically but I've noticed the disparity as well.

Edit: the same is true of domestic violence allegations.

Doesn't make the OP any less true though. Our society seems more outraged by bad behavior depending on who does it, but the effect on the victims is the same regardless.

39. No, you really, really don't.

A large number of women who don't know each other all made similar allegations that the same celebrity raped them with broadly similar MOs?

Are you seriously suggesting that if the celebrity in question was white it would not be reported?

15. All true, but

If by any chance you are alluding to Bill Cosby, he is an extremely talented man who became the consensus token beloved black celebrity for much of white America. He perhaps was given such great respect while other black men weren't so that many whites could then claim "see, we don't really harbor racist sentiments, we watch the Cosby show" - which is often the very purpose of establishing and elevating a token. Another black man long ago would have been arrested on rape charges, but relatively little effort went into corroborating Cosby's alleged victims stories at the time.

Now that the cone of silence regarding Cosby's alleged behavior has been shattered yes, it will now be treated as another salacious story about black men and sexuality. But I am currently inclined to believe that there is fire also with this smoke.

21. It's the timing that seems suspicious.

Why would these stories break at the particular times they do? Tiger apparently had several affairs while touring, none of them scandalous, but right after Obama's big triumph in Oslo, bam, suddenly Tiger is an adulterer, horrors!! And for the next month it was wall-to-wall Tiger-bashing. This time it's Cosby who's getting the treatment, right after Obama's immigration speech. So it looks like the media are giving us "something else to think about."

31. A comedian named Hannibal Buress had been making off-the-cuff jokes in his act about Cosby for

MONTHS now.

Someone recorded him doing stand up, put it out on the web, and that's when the Cosby rape charges took off.





This was not really news, it was percolating below the surface for some time now.

36. That's more or less that's what I'm getting at:

it wasn't news, but now it is. Why? There's no new lawsuit, and the last one was apparently settled nine years ago. And the fresh stories coming out are presumably the result of reporters phoning and asking. As for the comedy routine, it's interesting, but unless he said it during a Superbowl broadcast, I don't see how it could have sparked the Cosby take-down. There are a lot of comics saying a lot of stuff and this is the first I've heard of Hannibal Buress.

40. It started with one customer at a comedy club with a camera....

I think it reached a lot of people who a) Like comedy and b) Never heard of Hannibal Buress. A fair share of people get their comedy fix through YOUTUBE. I've seen a lot of comedians I would never otherwise know through YT. I have seen Buress before. He's got an edge to him, not afraid to go there.

He told people to "google Bill Cosby rapist" and so they did.

41. Maybe not, but Seinfeld did dump his teen girlfriend (in his 30s) for a newly married woman.

There's an expectation of bad behavior (though he has kept a low profile since his unexpected marriage).

Cosby has a reputation as a wholesome family man, and the sharp contrast between his "persona" and his reality is what astounds people.

WHY would 16 women of varied background come out and say these things about one of the most powerful, influential men of the past 50 years? They have little to gain except scorn. I, 2 maybe 3 women perhaps may lie but 16? SIXTEEN. (so far)
There is a pattern here and I believe it is a pattern that was used for most of Cosbys life. Why not, it worked. What nut would come out with such allegations about Americas Dad?

But judging by overwhelming evidence - Bill Cosby probably committed some rapes. OJ probably committed two murders. And Michael Jackson probably was attracted to young boys. How much he acted on it is questionable though.

Reality can be brutal at times.
