Bill Cosby trial on sexual assault has been going on for several days in the past week and by Tuesday, after long hours of deliberations; the jurors closed the case with no verdict. Cosby is accused of three counts of sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his home some 15 years ago in his home.
Cosby is at risk of being convicted on three counts of drugging and sexually abusing Andrea Constand more than 13 years ago. The verdict on the 79-year-old well-known US entertainer could see the man be jailed for up to 10 years behind the bars together with a fine of $25,000 on each count of the assault.
About 60 women have recorded statements accusing Cosby in the past for being a serial sexual abuser who allegedly drugged the victims with sedatives before assaulting them sexually for a span of more than 40 years in various states within the US.
As Cosby’s trial for his alleged sexual assault of Constand comes close to an end, many people who have doubted the judgment are convinced that the entire ordeal is about the white Americans fighting the blacks.
Many people have criticized Cosby’s case including Kanye West who tweeted recently that Cosby is innocent, and Tariq Nasheed who convinced his followers of Twitter that the allegations are more of a ‘white supremacy witch hunt’.
Cosby has maintained that his sexual encounter with Constand was consensual. While most of his complainants are women of color, Constand is white. The narrative is that Cosby is a black man and yet he enjoyed sex with a huge number of white women, thus the unbelievable blowback on him.
Though there have been incidences of racism and unfair accusations of the American whites against the blacks, the Cosby’s case is different and there could be more truth to the story. The comedian is a rich and renown black American who could afford the defense attorney to bail him out of the case. Cosby has even confessed committing the crime. Many women who accused him pointed to his fame and money as the core reasons why they didn’t bring out the matter earlier.
