Everyone has an opinion about the George Zimmerman trial. Even Bill Cosby, of course.
In an interview with the “DomNnate Radio Show,” Cosby shared some interesting views on the issue of race.
“This racial stuff goes into a whole bunch of discussion which has stuff that you can’t prove,” Cosby said in an interview Tuesday. “You can’t prove somebody is a racist unless they really come out and do the act and is found to be that.”
Oh really? So the man who is always trying to put black people in their ‘place’, doesn’t seem to think the killing was racially motivated, or that Trayvon Martin was profiled by a wannabe cop?
Cosby’s take on the trial? “The prosecution did not tell the story well, and they lost,” Cosby said. When asked about racial profiling his comments were even more disheartening. “Let’s not go into a racial discussion unless we really have something there,” he said
Cosby also had interesting views on the media and the Casey Anthony case. “I found the media were jumping and had this woman guilty,” Cosby said. “I will never pay attention to information given to me by TV, radio or whatever about a high-profile case until the jury says what it says.”
Sigh. Sometimes I feel like a Cosby lecture. Sometimes I don’t. This is definitely one of those times. You can listen to the whole interview below.
