[su_right_ad]Scott Simon interviewed Bill and Camille Cosby on Weekend Edition and asked the question he had to ask.

SIMON: This question gives me no pleasure Mr. Cosby, but there have been serious allegations raised about you in recent days.


SIMON: You’re shaking your head no. I’m in the news business. I have to ask the question. Do you have any response to those charges?


SIMON: Shaking your head no. There are people who love you who might like to hear from you about this. I want to give you the chance.

    One would assume he would adamantly deny the allegations..
    Or say something like, my attorney advised me not to make any comments.

      Sad to think these allegations might be true

        I enjoyed his very early stuff, but when The Cosby Show came out, he always struck me as a little creepy. Too cute by half, as my mom used to say.

    From the white people that I have talked with about this subject who also doesn’t know Mr Cosby, they say he’s a bit of a snob. While others say he’s such a funny man that the accusations can’t possibly be true, the accuser obviously thinks this is her lottery ticket.

    I need to know more about this story that has absolutely nothing to do with me as much as possible. That way, I can know something about a person that I will never meet and hold an opinion about without actually knowing nothing about that person.

    From the article:
    “The charges have been public for almost a decade.”

    And no prosecution?

    Q: What do Tom Robinson (To Kill a Mockingbird), Herman Cain, and Bill Cosby all have in common?

    A: A white woman makes an accusation, a black man denies it, and many people instinctively find the white woman more credible.

    In the United States, white women have the lowest rate of incarceration, and black men have the highest. Whenever any black man is accused, he is fighting an uphill battle in the court of public opinion. I, for one, am withholding judgment.
