    The observation that the views of another famous person who has no expertise and no personal knowledge still manages to lend accusations more currency is a pretty interesting one.

    So, when did this "Bill Cosby talking down to the black community" incident occur...?

    Was it when he tried to encourage the black community to improve their manner of verbal expression...?

    I completely forgot about these rape allegations -- 1 or 2 accusations under unusual circumstances - yeah they might be looking for a payday, but 13+ women with the same basic story... Ug, another childhood hero down the drain.

    This is a typical attack upon a black man because his worldview does't line up with the status quo of his "people".

    He is still one of the top 3 standup comics ever. The timing of all this stinks and it should be obvious to anyone who isn't invested in the vocal mob's agenda.

    boooo! turrible

    Cosby is innocent until proven guilty. This reminds me of the Calvin Murphy mess. Not to mention, Burress has plenty of reasons why he would like to mention Cosby in his act. Guy is a hack, who wishes he had name recognition. That is what he trying to do by getting his name out there with these Cosby comments.

    Hannibal has been more relevant in the comedy scene in the past ten years than Bill Cosby.
