Bill Cosby, Serial Rapist

I think it's pretty clear that he got away with so much for so long because he never threatened the white PTB, unlike so many black comics, and he even criticized "black culture", for brownie points.

Sure wouldn't look good for the "good guy black comic" to be such a nasty piece of work.

And though it is easy to say this is why Obama gets away with so much nasty shit (note, I am referring to his militarism and corporatism, not the idiotic right-wing critiques of him), I don't think it has to do with race, since the public put up with similar crap from white presidents and politicians.

For that matter, I'm not even claiming Cosby getting away with serial rape had to do with him being black. I think it was more that he was never really threatening to the PTB and he made white people feel good about their feelings about black people.

Ultimately, it was the media and power structure who refused to make an issue about Cosby, or Obama, or Bush, or 9/11, or any other number of outrage put over on the public-- because the media and power structure is composed of traitors and venal psychopaths.

To be clear, as well, there is a very ugly and persistent racism in the US too, and much of it is institutionalized, such as by the police.

Bill Cosby is a political conservative and card-carrying member of the 1% ruling class.

It's also helpful to remember that
November is a sweeps month,and nothing adds views, clicks etc. than stories about celebrities, drugs, sex, and the power of money.

but on the other hand there also seems to be a concerted effort on the part of the media to sweep instances of black on white violent crimes under the rug.
white on black violence = hate crime with offenders mugs splashed all across the media - "death to whitey!"
black on white violence = "oh the poor disadvantaged anonymous minority offenders had no other recourse than to beat and rape an old white lady - poor disadvantaged youths, it's all whitey's fault!"
