Bill Cosby Is An American icon, not just a black icon but an all American icon and there can only be one Bill Cosby to do what only he has done. He brought endless possibilities to what black Americans could achieve in life through simple television and psychological adjustments to the black family role. The Cosby show is said to have been the premier psychological surgery that reshaped the black image vs black stereotypes commonly associated with white/black television shows and or stereotypical black life. What were the black television shows prior to The Cosby Show? These shows, though strongly cultured, cast a very inferior and/or psychologically demeaning view of “African-American” life and occupation. The view was either extremely racist (or prejudice) or tried extremely hard to hide the obvious. There’s a simple explanation according to our host. He suggests the era’s expectations demanded certain characteristics concerning black life on and off screen. With the popularity of black power as the phenomenal pervasiveness of the 1960s and 70s black shows depicted this grim!
“Let’s have a look at some of the popular black shows of those periods and let’s examine the psychological affects these type of shows casted on people of color. Every black show without exception was degraded by Hollywood to be/appear inferior, The Cosby Show is the exception to this.
Have you ever considered why Bill Cosby is being attacked by white American media? There is an open assault on the character of Bill Cosby because he is a black male. What’s more he is seen by many black & white families, still, as a positive role model.
But make no mistake about it the positive black male image is being attacked by the power structure, the black male image is under attack! Bill Cosby is being attacked for two primary reasons. (1.) He is a popular black male image. (2.) He is a popular black male image lauded, love, and admired around the world. This is dangerous! In a sense, he is seen as not only the ‘black family father image messiah’ but the white as well, and The Western Global Power Structure can’t handle that!” Dr. Mauricelm-Lei Millere
