Bill Cosby’s legal team is playing the race card.

Bill Cosby’s lawyer said Tuesday that his client has been the victim of “racial bias and prejudice” as the sexual assault allegations against him have played out in the court of public opinion.

The statement —- which targeted lawyer Gloria Allred, who has represented some of the women who accused Cosby of sexual misconduct —- came as a trial date of June 5, 2017, was set this afternoon in the comedian’s Pennsylvania sexual assault case…


“The time has come to shine a spotlight on the trampling of Mr. Cosby’s civil rights. Gloria Allred apparently loves the media spotlight more than she cares about justice. She calls herself a civil rights attorney, but her campaign against Mr. Cosby builds on racial bias and prejudice that can pollute the court of public opinion. And when the media repeats her accusations — with no evidence, no trial and no jury — we are moved backwards as a country and away from the America that our civil rights leaders sacrificed so much to create.”

Allred fired back in a statement obtained by ABC News, in which she said that Cosby “appears desperate.”
