Bill Cosby’s Star Should Be Removed According To Black Leaders In LA

Bill Cosby's Walk of Fame star in Los Angeles [Black Westchester]

imageAn entire alliance of African-American Civil Rights Leaders in Los Angeles are now calling for the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Leron Gubler to have Cosby’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame removed.

“Bill Cosby, by his own admission, obtained drugs in order to use (on) young women he wanted to have sex with. As far as I’m concerned Cosby is a serial rapist. Rape is rape and we should all understand the devastating and traumatic pain this does to a woman for the rest of her life. Nearly 40 women have come forth publicly over the years stating publicly that Cosby drugged and had sex with them without their consent. Which is rape.” According to Najee Ali, the director of Project Islamic Hope. “Cosby deliberately placed himself in a position of high moral standards and told the African-American community who they are to be, while he was cheating on his wife and drugging and raping women nationwide. This is the epitome of hypocrisy revealed. Cosby has been lying to his wife, family, loved ones, friends, colleagues, fans, the community of African-American students, and the entire African-American community.” Ali also stated.

Ali also had a lot to say about Whoopi who has publicly supported Cosby.. “Shame on Whoopi Goldberg and the other African-American Cosby supporters. Cosby did this to himself. Your continued support of a serial rapist is a major reason why women don’t want to report sexual assault because they feel no one will believe them. We are men against rape. These women have our full support. That’s why we’re calling for the Hollywood Walk of Fame and Hollywood Chamber of Commerce President Leron Gubler to remove Bill Cosby’s star from the walk of fame.”

Some say that it’s all apart of the plan being Cosby stood up to the powers that be and said things to upset people like Trump and many others while trying to buy a network. Also saying this just the backlash of who he angered and tarnishing his character would ensure he’d never step out-of-place again. No matter what you believe or what side you choose the damage has indeed already been done. Do you think Bill Cosby’s star should be removed?
