How is it, that 50 women, yes 50, can come forward with stunningly similar stories about how Bill Cosby drugged and raped them? It is not just the number of women, or the similarities in their stories, or even the span of years over which the stories are reported to have taken place. No, the worst thing about his reported actions is the network of enablers who helped Cosby get away with his crimes against these women. And it looks like, with today’s announcement, that Cosby won’t be going away anytime soon, that he just may have gotten away with his abuse of women.
And how is it, that a man who openly bragged about grabbing women by their private parts, because, you know, he is famous and can get away with it has been elected President of the United States?
And how is it that the man who founded Uber can openly call it ‘boober’ because ever since he became rich and famous through the company, he can have any babe he wants?
And how is it that a man, ‘Dr. Dre,’ can have a past littered with physical abuse of women, yet be very richly rewarded through his ‘musical’ and film ventures?
And the list goes on: Eminem, Semyon Varlamov, Michael Fassbender, Josh Brolin, Gary Oldman, John Lennon, Nicolas Cage, Sean Bean, Brandon Marshall… All men who have been accused and/or charged with domestic violence by girlfriends and spouses. All men whose careers and reputations (for the most part) have remained intact.
Well there is a reason, and that reason is because black, white, purple or green, men rule, still. Women are very much the second class, just ask Hillary Clinton.
Hillary Clinton has studied and worked her entire life to become President of the United States. She endured the realization that her husband Bill would have to run for that office, even though she was way more qualified for the job. She endured, as First Lady, her husband’s public affairs with women and the lawsuits that resulted. She finally got her shot to be one of the best and most prepared people to ever be president, and guess who took it away from her? A lazy, born-rich womanizer who knows nothing about how to govern, but hey, he’s a guy.
Happy Father’s Day.
