Black Man Charged With Rape of White Woman

From the New York Times:

“The evidence is strong and sufficient to proceed,” said Mr. Steele, now first assistant district attorney. “A person in that state cannot give consent,” he added.

“Investigators recognize that individuals who are falsely accused of sexual assault generally do not unilaterally offer generous financial assistance, and apologies, to their accuser and their accuser’s family,” the complaint says.

The criminal charges stem from a woman’s accusation that he drugged and sexually abused her at his home in a suburb north of Philadelphia in 2004.

Judge McHugh concluded the proceeding after about 15 minutes by saying, “Good luck to you, sir.” He replied, “Thank you.” He will remain free on bail of $1 million.

Would the reaction be different were Cosby were known as a progressive, instead of as right-of-center by American Black standards?

  1. He has dodged, for decades, lots and lots of accusations and been shielded by the press and well-regarded by his peers and the public at large (if anything, he was a grumpy, but lovable, uncle), so I don’t know how much better could he have fared if his views were more agreeable to the Black mainstream. Say what you will about Woody Allen, he was never accused of abusing a dozen adopted sons or seducing a dozen girls adopted by a dozen different mates of his.
