Bill Cosby, Show Business, and Drug Use
Mixing drugs and sex unfortunately is not uncommon in show business. Why is Bill Cosby being singled out for persecution? Janice Dickinson said that she had a threesome with Grace Jones and 'Rocky IV' Dolph Lundgren. Janice says, “People ask me what it was like... But I don't remember. We were so high” (on drugs). Dickinson also bragged to Howard Stern about having sex with over a thousand men (and a number of women).
Cosby’s persecution highlights a phenomenon in the U.S. where Black men are disproportionately accused of sexual assault. Some of the notable African-American men accused were jazz legend Charlie Parker, 2013 Heisman Trophy recipient Jameis Winston, Ceelo Green, Kobe Bryant, Michael Jackson, Lawrence Taylor, Jim Brown, and Tupac Shakur.
Journalist Iva Anthony found that 10 out of 15 celebrities she covered for charges of sexual assault were African-American men, even though Black men represent 6 percent of U.S.’s population. What is the cause for this statistical discrepancy?
