The new National Museum of African American History and Culture that’s set to open in September on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., will mention that he has been accused by scores of women of drugging and sexually assaulting them. This is absolutely necessary. Cosby has been able to chastise the black community in order to cover up and hide what he was actually doing, and yet, this museum attempted to allow his exhibit to go on with Trump-like propaganda.
Museum curators initially said that the comedian’s contributions to African-American history and culture should stand on their own, but after criticism from Cosby’s accusers and heated public debate about how the museum should address his legacy, the museum’s director said Thursday that it would include a reference to Cosby’s tarnished reputation.
“This is not an exhibition that ‘honors or celebrates’ Bill Cosby but one that acknowledges his role, among many others, in American entertainment,” Lonnie Bunch said in a statement. “Visitors will leave the exhibition knowing more about Mr. Cosby’s impact on American entertainment, while recognizing that his legacy has been severely damaged by the recent accusations.”
Just like the Alabama Governor, he is not living what he preaches.
