Actor Michael Jai White is furious with the defense of Bill Cosby and he’s taking to Facebook to vent his frustrations. White says people claiming Cosby is only being targeted because of his race are in denial. Cosby has been accused of sexual assault by over two dozen women, and recently was charged in connection with one of those assaults.

“I’m seeing countless posts on racism, Bill Cosby as well as racism connected with Bill Cosby and my mind is blown! There are so many posts devoted to proving racism exists that there is no energy left on focusing on the solutions … ‘They’ set up Bill Cosby! Oh sure. If he never drugged anybody he’s still the most self righteous, judgmental and biggest known serial adulterer we’ve ever known without relying on our creativity and analogy to paint him differently.

Being an Actor from NYC, I as well as countless others know how ‘busy’ Cosby was in the 80’s and believe me, ‘THEY’ knew it too but ‘THEY’ never came out with the headline ‘Americas Most Beloved Father Is Cheating His Black Ass Off,’ did THEY? If THEY wanted to take Cosby down wouldn’t that be the best time? I’ve identified this for years as the one double standard that Black men enjoyed over whites! Let Seinfeld be married and do that shit! Lol. Remember Hugh Grant was practically destroyed from one encounter with a hooker?”

From Cosby, the actor moved onto another topic he thinks the Black community needs to stop being so naïve about: infidelity. White, a husband and father of three, believes cheating is too often overlooked by people.

I’m a Black man who’s disturbed by the fact that we can have infidelity in our lives and it NOT BE A BIG DEAL! It’s like society is saying being faithful is above Black men and below Whites. MLK, Jessie Jackson, Cosby… the list goes on. Cosby stopped being a hero to me as soon as I learned he was living a lie as a faithful man, period.

What do you think of Michael Jai’s rant? Does he have a point? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.

Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
