The fall of Bill Cosby is bad karma for the Black Comunity I held out in favor of Mr. Cosby until the evidence appeared insurmountable.

As Bill Cosby was hauled off to jail, far-left professors like Marc Lamont Hill of Temple University were celebrating. According to Hill, who is a rabid race-baiter, Cosby got what coming to him.

While Cosby may very well be a sexual predator, he also used to spout inconvenient truths about what was taking place in some urban communities.

Cosby goaded young blacks to get rid of the baggy, prison-style pants that gang members wear. He chided them for having children out of wedlock. He placed a lot of the blame for black poverty on them and their choices in life.

However true that may be, black left-wing academics like Hill accused him of beating up on poor blacks.

So is it karma that Cosby is now the one behind bars? I think its bad karma for young black kids that now have only people such as Marc Lamont Hill as role models.

I always respected Bill Cosby for the totality of his life.

When I was in college, my roommate was given to playing an old Cosby comedy album about his days at Temple University. It was, at the same time, clean humor and as funny as you could imagine. I began to associate Cosby with a small group of comedians that I thoroughly enjoyed – for being able entertain and be funny without being off-color (if you’ll excuse the term).

Long before “The Cosby Show” sitcom, (And the “Bill Cosby Show” and “Cosby”) I knew that Mr. Cosby had become the first black man with star billing in a major network drama – as he played the role of Alexander “Scotty” Scott in NBC’s 1965 espionage series “I Spy.” I loved “The Cosby Kids” as Mr. Cosby lent his vice to “Fat Albert” on CBS in 1972.

Three great shows. Drop-dead hilarious comedy. Conservative values. Somehow I knew it was too good to be true.

I believed with all my heart that Cosby was a treasure – not only for all Americans, but especially for young blacks in the inner city that need to lose the baggy pants and do something positive with their lives.

Cosby once said:

“Are you not paying attention? People with their hat on backwards, pants down around the crack, with names like Shaniqua, Shaligua, Mohammed and all that crap, and all of them are in jail.”

To me, Cosby had a point. I’ve always considered the concept of “black names” to be cultural – and understand that kids can’t help what they’re named. (My name is “Lynn” and I’m a guy!) But I think Cosby was simply saying that a kid with a more ordinary name might grow up with a better chance. I don’t know. I just know that he condemned the gangsta life and wanted black kids to study and do well.

To Marc Lamont Hill, Cosby was simply beating up on poor blacks. It’s “karma” that Cosby is now the one in jail. He said:

“[Cosby] made the decision to focus his attention on beating up on the black poor, on telling the world that black people were dysfunctional, pathological and undeserving of equal protection under the law. When somebody like that, who positions themselves as the moral authority of black America, gets called onto the carpet, you ain’t getting no breaks here. People are going to be frustrated.”

The sad thing is that no young black will get anywhere by listening to Marc Lamont Hill.

He is a professor and uses “hip-hop” culture to try to keep kids in school – so good for him. But unfortunately, he is a far leftist, social justice agitator and young blacks that follow in his footsteps should be warned.

Meanwhile, Cosby’s lawyers will face long odds in trying to free him.

Cosby’s lawyers are paid to try – but the 81-year old, legally-blind Cosby won’t be free for a long time, if ever. He may rot in jail. He may deserve to if the evidence against him is all true – as it seems to be.

But there are a few factors that stick in my logical mind. First, Bill Cosby’s body of work as a comedian and a TV star is exemplary. Second, his admonitions to young blacks were right on target and should be heeded. Third, Bill Clinton still exists in society as a free man.
