In an effort to change the narrative of the rape, sexual assault, and abuse accusations stacked against him by over 60 women, Bill Cosby has broken his silence in an interview with Sirius Xm. During the Tuesday conversation, Cosby blamed racism for the scandal that's driven his career into the ground.
"I just truly believe that some of it may very well be that."
His claim actually echoes recent comments made by his daughter Ensa Cosby who told radio host Charlamagne tha God of The Breakfast Club that she believed "racism has played a big role in all aspects of this scandal."
When Bill Cosby was asked by interviewer Michael Smerconish if he agreed with his daughter, the comedian said "...I just truly believe that some of it may very well be that."
Still, it hardly gives Cosby legs in his new claim.
Both Black and white women make up the 60 victims who have come forward to accuse Cosby of sexual battery, rape, drug-facilitated sexual assault, and child sexual abuse.
It's also an argument that not too many in the Black community will be willing to let him lean on, especially considering how unrelenting he's been about blaming poverty stricken African Americans for creating their own problems.
There's no doubt Bill Cosby has experienced racism in his life, however, it's an insult to those experiences to count these allegations as part of them.
