Joining former NBC player turned sports commentator Charles Barkley, actor and comedian Bill Cosby says that he agrees with the verdict in the Zimmerman trial. Cosby also questions the media’s handling of the shooting and the trial.
Cosby’s take on the trial? “The prosecution did not tell the story well, and they lost,” Cosby said.
His take on the media? Cosby was over the media after the Casey Anthony trial. “I found the media were jumping and had this woman guilty,” Cosby said. “I will never pay attention to information given to me by TV, radio or whatever about a high-profile case until the jury says what it says.”
Cosby also says race doesn’t belong in discussions of the shooting and the trial.
“This racial stuff goes into a whole bunch of discussion which has stuff that you can’t prove,” Cosby said in an interview Tuesday. “You can’t prove somebody is a racist unless they really come out and do the act and is found to be that.”
Cosby made his comments to DomNnate Radio, which will publish the full interview soon.
Neither Cosby nor Barkley make their living primarily by pushing racial divisions, whereas Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Eric Holder and Barack Obama, along with the entire Democrat Party establishment and many in the mainstream media, do.
