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.
Halle Berry & Her Wig Return For L.A. Riots Drama ‘Kings’
We may know why Halle Berry had those trendils of terrors at last years Oscars ceremony … she was in character for her new flick Kings.
The trailer just dropped and Berry’s curly locks are pretty identical to the ones she infamously rocked at the 2017 Academy awards. Folks went in on the gorgeous beauty about her hair choice for the evening, but we think once people see the trailer they’ll give her a pass.
Kings tells the story of Millie (Berry), a single mother with eight children, and some of them aren’t even her own. But she takes it upon herself to give them the best home that she can, even if it brings a little craziness into her neighborhood and drives her next door neighbor Obie (Daniel Craig) a little crazy. But there’s turmoil on the horizon after the Rodney King verdict is announced and the riots begin, seemingly putting Millie and her family in danger on the streets.
Similar to last years Detroit the flick, directed by Deniz Gamze Ergüven tackles racial tensions between citizens and law enforcement. Kings received mixed reviews when it premiered at September’s Toronto International Film Festival, but audiences will get to make up their own minds about the hot-button race-relations drama when it lands in theaters on April 27.
