Is There a White Aspiring Actress That Bill Cosby Hasn't Raped?
"Two more women who claim they were sexually assaulted by Bill Cosby spoke out at a news conference Friday, adding their names to a growing roster of accusers.
Margie Shapiro claims she was drugged and sexually assaulted by Cosby at the Playboy Mansion in the mid-1970s.
`He was inside me and touching me. I was so grossed out. I can`t find the words to express my disgust. Mercifully, I passed back out again,` Shapiro said.
Sunni Welles says she was just 17 years old when Cosby raped her."
Two more women have come forward to accuse Bill Cosby of rape; their accounts are strikingly similar to the dozens of women who have already spoken out. At this point you need a calculator to keep up with the legions of women who have accused the disgraced comic of sexual assault.
Like almost all of Cosby`s victims, the latest accusers are white. Imagine if a famous white celebrity were accused of raping dozens of black women over a period of decades. The serial rapist would be treated like a leper, and no venue would risk booking him. He would need an army of bodyguards, and he would keep a very low profile.
Sunni Welles was just 17-year-old when Cosby raped her, where is the outrage? Cosby has been met with protests at almost every stop during his comedy tour, but it`s not enough. We need to support these victims by boycotting every concert hall that hosts the serial rapist. As a society we must demonstrate that rapists and their supporters and enablers won`t be tolerated.
Cosby`s crimes are so egregious and so numerous that justice won`t prevail unless this tragic saga ends with the comic`s suicide or incarceration.
My rhetoric may seem over-the-top but rape is no joking matter, and it`s an outrage that Cosby is in the middle of a comedy tour with all of these credible allegations of rape swirling around him.
