Bill Cosby resigns from Temple University Board of Trustees

The history of America is the crucifixion of the Black man, from the beginning until now, from the highest brother to the lowest. In the words of Rev. Cone, it is about the cross and the lynching tree. It is sad to see Bill Cosby go down the road of perdition, but sometimes we shoot ourselves in the foot. If any of these allegations are true, he has been a hypocritical devil, especially in his role as chief culture police of North American Africans. I am not a Cosby hater, he once used my writings in a concert and paid me for the use of my material. I would love to have use of his art collection now on exhibit at the Smithsonian, especially the pieces by Black Arts Movement icon Elizabeth Catlett Mora. The song says, "Don't mess wit Bill, leave my Billy alone...."

Bill Cosby Resigns From Temple University Board of Trustees

Bill Cosby Resigns From Temple University Board of Trustees (ABC News)
Days after resigning as fundraising co-chair at the University of Massachusetts, Bill Cosby has now resigned from the Board of Trustees at Temple University. 
Cosby attended Temple from 1961 to 1962, where he was a track and football star.
"I have always been proud of my association with Temple University. I have always wanted to do what would be in the best interests of the university and its students. As a result, I have tendered my resignation from the Temple University Board of Trustees," Cosby said Monday in an official statement. 

Temple University added, "The Board of Trustees accepts Dr. Cosby's resignation from the board and thanks him for his service to the university.”

The 77-year-old comedian had been on the Temple board since 1982.
With the number of sexual abuse accusers well above a dozen in recent weeks, Temple Board Chairman Patrick O'Connor told The Associated Press that Cosby does not want to be a distraction to the board. 

Temple University was actually at the center of the first abuse claim in 2004, when university employee Andrea Constand claimed the comedian drugged and assaulted her. Along with several women coming forward in the last month, a former NBC employee Frank Scotti told the New York Daily News that he paid off eight women on Cosby's behalf, allegedly sending thousands of dollars in money orders to the women to keep them quiet. 

With all the media buzz around the comedic legend, he's cancelled a number of stand-up shows and networks like TV Land have pulled reruns of "The Cosby Show." 

Last week, Cosby, who has vehemently denied the allegations all along, finally commented, saying, "I know people are tired of me not saying anything, but a guy doesn't have to answer to innuendos. People should fact check. People shouldn't have to go through that and shouldn't answer to innuendos." 

Cosby's lawyer Martin Singer has also spoken up for the comedian: "The new, never-before-heard claims from women who have come forward in the past two weeks with unsubstantiated, fantastical stories about things they say occurred 30, 40, or even 50 years ago have escalated far past the point of absurdity. 

"These brand new claims about alleged decades-old events are becoming increasingly ridiculous, and it is completely illogical that so many people would have said nothing, done nothing, and made no reports to law enforcement or asserted civil claims if they thought they had been assaulted over a span of so many years."

  1. We liven in a plutocratic white world everything white has an approval rating, people seek validation through white eyes. White supremacy is a collective conciousness white people developed from being in a position of power. They set the norm.for you. We need to define ourselves, refer to our culture, the cradle of civilization, their society is a subset of what we created thousands of years ago. They've twisted the truth with propaganda in their centers of dis-in formation they call schools. This is how white supremacy introduces the grand lie in society through indoctrination and the bile bull.
    The barbarian created a psychosis in the minds he wished to control, one of the methods of control is erasing your past,creating a zombie like corpse. We know and understand the sickness he perpetrated ,and move beyond the bestial prey. Harriet Tubman said she could have freed twice as many slaves; some of them didn't even know they were captives!
    The europeeon's game is predicated on power and dominance, this is why he have you jumping through the same hoops year after year. His biggest fear is losing power and have the people he's surpressed return the favor. He lives in a perpetual state of paranoia, the jailor is much more afraid than the captive. The unknowmn seed has been planted in his mind. He'll dream and have nightmares about it for the rest of his life. A suppresor is under pressure he has to maintain control of his captives or he loses all his powers. They create a buffer, false sense of power in minorities, things like a ceremonial presidency. The power structure of this country didn't change, power doesn't trickle down, that's a social myth. This is a plutocratic republic !The only thing that trickles down is piss!
    There has never been a melting pot, if so they certainly forgot the matches! The delusional integrationist have you believing you're blending in, you're not, the osmosis theory of you seeping through the crakas has been debunk . The unrest persist because the facade has been exposed, why do you think places like Ferguson explode when the vigilante cops blatantly murders a Black youth . We're sitting on a powder keg daily . The house is burning and you're pouring a glass of water on a forest fire. The lies are no longer working they got lost in miles of bile.
    Do you actually think white Afrikaners handed power to S,Africans ? All the ceremonial nonsense, parading Mandela around as a newly elected was nothing but a scam , the whites retained power, gave the Blcks the right to vote for the puppet governmentt in place. The craka tricknology never stops. Africans don't own any diamonds, gold or any other minerals in S. Africa. These are orchestrated psychological games to have sanctions lifted. The illusion of power is a very complex game perpetrated by white" europpeons" -they never lost anything they have a symbolic ruling body who looks Blck, they are the official ghost in power, a tragic joke if you asked me.
