Watching Bill Cosby’s perp walk was truly a sad sight. This is a man who has had a complicated relationship with the black community. On the one hand he gave generously to the education of millions of black students, but he was often critical of the lifestyle of urban America. He was simultaneously loved and reviled by the community, but now we are dealing with disquieting aspects of his life and that has led to taking sides. Over 50 women have said that he assaulted them. These claims go over a 40 year period. In America people are innocent until proven guilty except Cosby? Over the past few days his attorney Monique Pressley has been doing interviews in defense of her client and people are trashing her. Isn’t he entitled to a defense or should he just be sent to jail for the rest of his life? These allegations are ugly and if found guilty Cosby will be punished, but he is an American and he deserves an advocate who is there to defend him.

It is unlikely that you will ever meet Donald Trump, but one of his supporters might be sharing a cubicle with you. Trump has shown us that he is willing to say anything. If it keeps him in the news he will say it. So the outrageous has become commonplace, but when I see people aligning with him and saying that he is saying what they are thinking. That is more scary than he could ever be.
We are vulnerable. We live in a free society and with that comes peril. Yesterday, we saw a man and his wife kill 14 people and wound 21. The killers were killed in a shootout with the police. People you know it and I know it this was terrorism. So what do we do about it? We’ve got to go to work, school, church, but how do we stay safe. Some newspapers are saying prayer is not the answer but as believers we can not abandon prayer. We have to do more. Any ideas?
News outlets are reporting that Tom Joyner is being forced out of his job next year. The time coincides with President Obama’s exit from the White House.
