Somebody spiked my Jello Pudding Pops

Ya lie! Not Dr Huxtable! Dr Huxtable would never do that. Noooooooooo!

Seriously I'm in shock at the news that Bill Cosby admitted to feeling up the girl. O well sorry I don't know if he feel she up or not cause I wasn't there so I shouldn't sensationalize the story but the revelation that something did happen between him and the young lady was traumatizing for me. I also am not saying whether it was mutual or not, that is yet to be determined but Cosby's revelation that he did have some sort of sexual contact with her left me seriously shook.

Ok I mean yea this isn't the first time we heard about Cosby's little escapades before. We had heard about Autumn Jackson, his outside daughter, trying to extort poor old Bill a few years back because he had haddddddddddddd an affair or as Cosby called it a "rendezvous" with her mom in the 70s but that was ancient history. It was the 70s everybody was a player back then. lol. Cosby been big pimpin oh wait a minute he doesn't like ebonics so I should say he was living in a manner of finery and opulent wealth befitting a man of his status. Naa forget that nonsense! Bill been pimpin since been pimpin since been pimpin (If ya don't know ask somebody who watched How High) YEAHHHH!

Oh folks are going to have a field day on this one and I don't intend to be left out.

Now Bill, far be it for me to lay judgment on you BUT you got on your high horse earlier this year and had loads of talk for poor black folk. Yes I actually felt like you were attacking people I know personally although I know I am not any of those things you mentioned. Still seeing as where I am right now, I'm probably still like about one paycheck from the poverty I think I may have fit somewhere into your big all encompassing tirade. Oh ya didn't think I was going to forget what you said now did you?

Now I'm not claiming no ghetto, not claiming to be middle class either, and I'm not saying you were all wrong with your comments because you had some valid points and I commend you for mentioning them BUT the way you came off you know you do know that you were guilty of stereotyping a large portion of the race. You painted ALL black folk, who live in certain areas, or lack a certain wealth, or speak a certain way with the same broad brush. Shame on you Bill! You didn't say SOME try, or some speak good English or some come from decent homes, or are trying to get an education in a poor education system, or some are hardworking decent citizens or some are trying to stop the negative cycles or some are trying to better themselves but need the help of the brothers and sisters like you who've made it. Uh uh! NOOOO you decided you were going on a rampage. Why make it seem as if there was any good at all in poor black folk? Wouldn't suit your purpose would it? You said all the young girls have multiple baby fathers, don't know who the child's father is (been watching a lot of Maury in your spare time Bill?), give their kids ghetto names (I'm with you on that one by the way), the men are beating up the women and in general everyone 'be ebonically speaking', cant dress, wear hats backwards and oh no I know you didn't have the nerve to say this? And I quote "the lower economic people are not holding up their end in this deal."

Oh no Bill say it aint so? Tell me you didn't say that. Oh hell no! Well Mr Cosby from my perspective it doesn't look like your upper class economic ass is holding up your end of the deal either. Didn't W.E.B Dubois say that you talented tenth folk are supposed to pull the race up? Those lower economic folks cant pull from the bottom now can they? So while every one of us poor shiftless Negroes were on the corner, drinking forties, selling drugs, being promiscuous and wilding out not holding up our end of the deal you were up in the mansion setting this wonderful example for us by feeling on some booty. Some young booty. What are you like the R.Kelly of your generation?

If you want to be the moral spokesman for the race you really shouldn't go about it like this. Have we learned nothing from Jesse?

I mean seriously Bill talk to me. Come on now. You're 67, you're probably barely able to chew your jello pudding properly. Why you be messing around with a woman less than half your age? Ya like dem young fresh and green? She could kill you man. You could have a Fred G Sandford type heart attack up in here just by even thinking about trying to get with her. We could wake up to read that you rolled your eyes (like in the commercials) and uttered your last words "You remind me of my Jello pudding pops!"

Just because your name is Bill doesn't mean you have to try to be like Clinton.

And I don't know if she's black or white or whatever but can I just say this. Have we as a race learned nothing from Kobe? I mean Bill now you going to have to go out and buy a 4 million dollar ring for Camille and hold a press conference and generally just lose credibility. And no one listens to you once you lose credibility. Ask Jeese. And all because you copped a feel. Oh man!

Seriously though I'm in shock. Our beloved Dr Huxtable accused of sexual contact with this young lady. One of the coolest black dads ever. The coolest dad on TV. Its just not what I imagined. I mean did ya cheat on Claire too, Heathcliffe? No wonder Theo cant hold a steady job. Everytime I turn on TV he's on some other short lived series. Poor Rudy be all up Chingy's video nowadays half nekkid and oh yea Denise did that one movie where she was buck nekkid too and well I aint even going to talk about Vanessa. Its too painful man. What happened to our perfect black family?

But don't worry son, I got you on this one. We're going to go for the spiked pudding pop defense.

And if that doesn't work I think I'm going to need therapy.

It seems there is a blight on the Bills. Mr. Cosby, I'm still reeling from the revelation about the rendez-vous of a few years back. Course the lady in question is not realy a "youte" but still. J did you had me laughin' and thinking we really can't hold these people to be any sort of moral leaders....even if they think themselves to be.

4panist said...

I'm posting again! I just read the linked article and I did not know there was an element of drug play in the accusation! OK now I'm just mad. Its a woman's choice and level of readiness that can make her wait before bringing forward any plaints againts her assailant. That's it Mr. Cosby, you've gone from Tv's favourite dad to someone who had better either be innocent, or be getting ready to do some of that famous dancing between prison walls. Its got to be a crazy world that a person can be accused of drugging someone and the punishment does not include time in the slammer.

Oooohhh, now U done it! I'm a-tell Momma! (That's mi best Dee from What's Happenin!) Jdid, I'm not that surprised at Bill. He's only human. I'm hopin' he really didn't drug de accuser, 'cause THAT would be a shock to me. Yu mentioned Vanessa--what HAS happened to her? (BTW, ah heard that Dee from What's Happenin' is a vet, an' has a happy home life. That's sweet, but it calls to mind a line from some sitcom that says de natural order ov medicine is Doctor at de top, then dentist, then chiropractor, then vet, then masseuse, then prostitute. Ah know, it's awful!)

Anonymous said...

Actually, that order of medical smarts should be: Doctors are smartest, then Dentist, then Veterinarian, then Chiropractor, then Masseuse, THEN Prostitute!

Anonymous said...

Yeah JDid, Bill dropping down many points here (if he really guilty)....doh mek sense one coming across all clean if you have dirt unda you skin as well.

Indeed, we are all human, none of us perfect, but if you tainted then don't cuss others who do wrong also. Similar case to the Catholic Priests and the little boys!

Melody...me name Doc yes, but far as I see it, I nuh consider a Dentist any less intelligent than I may be. Dr. D.

nahmix said...

I'm not surprised one bit. That incident with his illegitimate daughter a few years back shed light on just the kind of man he is. Dr. Huxtable, jello pudding, Fat Albert, A Different World...I don't care. He is still a cheating ass bastard!

o said...

I'm in shock as well.

I think he should give himself a scolding, like he's been doing to the Black American community as of late.

And it just had to be a Canadian sista, heh? You done know she's a sista, she lives in Pickering! (LOL...I have relatives that live there, it's all good) We sistas want to be seen by the world, BUT NOT LIKE THIS!

Anyway, exceptional writing today, Meester J-did. I'm here making your Yahoo avatar to post soon nuff! LOL

Abeni said...

Say it eh so Mr Moral!When you taking all kinda shots at people you had better well make sure your own house in order.I can't wait to hear the comedians make fun of him.

Jdid said...

4panist I guess the lesson is we never know what skeletons these persons have. I also guess we have to see how the complaint plays out. All I know is Cos' wholesome credibility is shot regardless of whether he is innocent or not.

Melody ha ha ha, never heard that one about the natural order in medicine

Dr, yep bill dropping fast. Its really sad though because we all had this really great image of him

nahmix true that.

thanks soli, looking forward to seeing my avatar

Abeni neither can I especially since he was very critical of Wanda Sykes a while back.

Jdid said...

Actually thinking about it out loud. Cosby's dis of wanda sykes and the other black comedians smacks a bit of a colonial mentality. How so? He thinks they are somehow inferior because they speak ebonics. All quite interesting actually.

Anonymous said...

Cho Jdid, didn't you see the latest Chris Rock comedy show, I think it was on HBO? This thing with Bill was obviously orchestrated by George Bush! He wanted to distract our minds from the stuff he (Bush) had going on!
Poor Bill Cosby though. George done painted him with the same brush he used on RKelly and Kobe and...

Mad Bull

Scratchie said...

Hey JDid, The higher you climb the further you fall. I can't knock the man since he's human but don't lick out at everything around you cuz it gwine lick back. Man fi just cool imself iyah. Good post.

Sunshine said...

Hi Jdid-It's always the pious and self-righteous ones that are the biggest culprits of whatever they preach against. Him only human yes, but don't go around being so infallible and judgemental. He's not a god like some people think.

Shana said...

First Jesse. . .now Bill . . .can't say that I'm the least bit surprised. . . a man is a man regardless of what his position in society is. . .not saying that all men cheat. . .just saying that all are capable. . .

obifromsouthlondon said...

I think the good doctor is innocent. it's a setup a conspiracy.

Urban Sista said...

I'm shocked.

But I shouldn't be. We all think we know celebrities because of their image on TV. But this is just another wake up call to tell all of us (especially me, 'cause I love some Bill Cosby) that people are people. No better because they are on the big or little screen.

If this young woman didn't agree to any sexual contact with Bill, he should be ASHAMED of himself. And I'll say, like I said about Kobe, if he's guilty, then let him get the punishment he deserves.

As for Bill's rant, I agree with a lot of what he said, but yes, I will agree that generalizations aren't cool. The ghetto is where you come from, not who you are. Just 'cause you live in a bad area, doesn't mean you are doomed to a life of poverty and sadness.

JustMe said...

Jdid,

Excellent post. I must have been in Los Angeles when this report came out. I missed it entirely. Wow...so Bill's a freak, huh. Damn. Between him and Michael Jackson, I don't know what to say...
