The not guilty verdict of George Zimmerman has left our country divided on issues concerning gun laws, ‘stand your ground’ and of course racism. While the idea of a ‘post racial America’ is pretty much obsolete, Bill Cosby prefers that we keep skin color and the George Zimmerman ordeal as separate as possible.
In an interview with DomNnate Radio, the legendary comedian says until it is proven without a doubt, we can’t label Zimmerman as a racist.
“This racial stuff goes into a whole bunch of discussion which has stuff that you can’t prove. You can’t prove somebody is a racist unless they really come out and do the act and is found to be that,” he said.
“The prosecution did not tell the story well, and they lost. Let’s not go into a racial discussion unless we really have something there.”
He went on to say that he doesn’t pay attention to media when it comes to murder trials, citing Casey Anthony as a prominent example. ”I found the media were jumping and had this woman guilty,” he added.
What are your thoughts on Cosby’s stance?
