Thanks to The Cosby Show, Fat Albert and standup, Bill Cosby has become one of today’s most beloved public figures. Of course, mixed up in his celebrated entertainment career are over a dozen instances where Cosby allegedly drugged and raped various women — but that’s the part that most people would rather not talk about. Too bad for them, though, because Hannibal Buress is talking about it anyway.
god bless hannibal burress
I would say this ruins my Huxtable love but I’ve known Cosby was a piece of shit for years, and I only rewatch now for Lisa Bonet and Phylicia Rashad anyway (and Malcolm-Jamal Warner who I got to meet once and is actually amazing)
Anonymous said: can you elaborate on people "slipping" into aave?
train yourself to see it. look at these viral posts and think about
- what these people or characters are trying to portray and
- how the intended characteristics correlate to v specific antiblack stereotypes (the answers are at the bottom)
a) sassy, loud, hysterical, confrontational; b) vocally lascivious; c) animalistic, dirty, barbaric, savage, uncivilized, unsophisticated, unhygienic, rude; d) sexually predatory
this relates more than a little to the last post
