“I worked with @BillCosby in ’86 when I was 19. We were alone together many times. He was a perfect gentleman & became a mentor to me.”

Those were the words of Stacey Dash, who seems to be one of a small number of celebrities speaking out in favor of Bill Cosby.  Raven Symone could be considered the other person to have worked with him that has been willing to even touch the very toxic case which may lead to the downfall of one of the most beloved entertainment icons in the world.

Dash made these remarks on Twitter in response to backlash from those who believe that Cosby has never seen a pretty girl he didn’t want to drug.

Dash got some positive reactions from those who believe in Cosby, but she also received some negative backlash from ex-fans who believe the many women who’ve come forward to accuse Cosby of unspeakable crimes.

Raven took her anger out on Instagram, stating that Cosby never touched her during the many years they worked together, and that people need to stop reaching.  She also says she wants to be left out of it.

I was NOT taking advantage of by Mr. Cosby when I was on the Cosby Show! I was practically a baby on that show and this is truly a disgusting rumor that I want no part of! Everyone on that show treated me with nothing but kindness. Now keep me out of this!

Cosby has more enemies than friends these days, and accusers are coming forward nearly every day.  The public perception of Cosby is not the sort of thing that will lead to any trials or jury verdicts, those are long beyond possible.  But instead, it has cost him his new show on NBC and may also force him to live his final years in shame. buy strattera online http://healthinschools.org/wp-content/languages/new/noprescription/strattera.html no prescription

It’s now getting to the point that the media is simply analyzing Cosby and what this all means, rather than trying to figure out if he’s actually guity.  James Poniewozik at Time Magazine says that while the court might believe that a person is innocent until proven guilty, this is not the standard for life.  According to Poniewozik and many others, the standard of guilt was surpassed by the very large number of accusers that Cosby has faced since the public began to discuss the allegations. buy wellbutrin online http://healthinschools.org/wp-content/languages/new/noprescription/wellbutrin.html no prescription

But it seems hard to hear what we’ve been hearing and not feelanything different when watching Cliff Huxtable making faces and dispensing wisdom. “Innocent until proven guilty” is a standard for the courts, for good reason. But it’s not a standard for life. If what you know or hear about an artist affects the way you see their work, you can no more will yourself to feel otherwise than you can force yourself not to blink.

Do Cosby rape allegations discredit all that he’s done in television and for the black community? Cosby gave $20 million dollars to Spelman College alone, more than any other celebrity has ever given to an HBCU, let alone a women’s college. How do you factor these acts in with the allegations?
