For weeks women have shared their horrid Bill Cosby stories. It seemed hard to believe that Cosby could have done this for years and the women committed to a conspiracy of silence. Some of the women are now in their 60s and 70s and they seemed to be sitting on a bunch of shattered dreams, but their stories seemed to similar to dismiss, but we just could not wrap our minds areound the kindly “Dr. Cliff Huxtable” engaging in this dastardly behavior. Huxtable is a fictional character. He is not the accused. Cosby is. Cosby the actor. Cosby the educator. Cosby the uplifter. Cosby the star, but we are talking about a man not a carefully crafted image. We have got to drop the blinders that trap us in the star’s glory days. When I read Beverly Johnson’s account I had to say I am starting to be a believer. I can no longer say this is not the Cosby I knew, because the truth is none of know him. He sits silently and that might be a sound legal strategy but it is not what we need. Cosby has talked us and lectured us for decades and now when he needs to speake he is mute. I believe Beverly Johnson because she has no reason to speak and so many reasons not to.
Beverly Johnson has no reason to lie on Bill Cosby
