Bill Cosby And White Privilege

 Bill Cosby has been accused for raping for a couple of years and been called to court TWICE ( I think ) .

He was convicted yesterday!

I know that The majority of women in The U.S will expect me to cheer with them about The fact that he was found guilty .

And although I am a woman , I have no intention to cheer about this !

Bill Cosby has been accused by a lot of women for rape and he said in enough interviews that these women did not say anything or show any sign that whatever he did with them was involuntary .

I have no intention to get mad at him for what he said in these interviews .

But I also want to bring to peoples attention a few other celebrities who have went through either The same accusations or similar .

I know you should not badmouth The dead but I am trying to make a point here !

Michael Jackson was accused for years for molesting or raping children .
I think he was taken to court but not sure . But he was constantly in Thr media because there were more and more adolescents speaking up about The abuse they endured because of Michael Jackson .

Now we have Donald Trump who is The current President of The U.S and he has more women accusing him of rape in an hour than for any man who was accused of ANY crime in general.
Has he been to court ? Has he been convicted?

The answer is NO to both questions!

Now let’s take The famous and beloved actor Stephen Collins who is most famously known for his character as Reverend Kampden ( I apologize if I miss spelled The name !)

He is also white , He confesses to his wife and therapist AND The media that he molested a few pre- teen girls !

Has he been called to court ? Has he been prosecuted ? , Have these young women who been molested by him went to court or demanded justice for what he did to them ?

The answer to all 3 questions is shockingly NO !

AND to make this even more interesting, Stephen Collins is walking around like nothing happened !

Not sure if he still gets any roles or not , BUT he is free to travel wherever he wants to and people seriously forgot about him !

So saying that justice was served by convicting Bill Cosby is a joke !

So thank you very much to The Justice System AND The media for truly showing me what WHITE privilege truly means and or even showing that they pick favorites !

Partly Sarcasm And Partly angry !



Thank you for reading

  1. Reverend Camden was the Stephen Collins character, Dusya.

    And I think Jackson was called to court in 1993 - there might have been a settlement, though.

    "But he was constantly in Thr media because there were more and more adolescents speaking up about The abuse they endured because of Michael Jackson ."
