Does INDIAN COUNTRY remember when Bill Cosby stood up for disenrolled Chukchansi people? WE DO, we wrote about it in 2007 and a couple of times after:
Bill Cosby has canceled his Sept. 2 appearance at the Chukchansi Gold Resort & Casino because of a dispute between the casino and an outside group over the tribe's efforts to get rid of some members. That group wrote a letter to Cosby to explain how it is upset with the Picayune Rancheria of the Chukchansi Indians, owners of the Coarsegold casino, for removing people from its membership rolls. "The letter was written to stop these performers from coming and supporting the tribes for doing what they are doing to the people," says Laura Wass, a Fresno-based American Indian activist who is a member of the group that sent the letter. Wass says Cosby was not singled out for any particular reason. He is just the first of several performers scheduled to appear at Chukchansi who have been sent letters regarding the dispute.
Keep in mind Indian Country, that Cosby stood up where, Gabriel Iglesias, Johnny Mathis, George Lopez, Emmylou Harris ALL FAILED to stand up against Apartheid and civil rights abuses, while is some cases, like Lopez, standing for Cuban rights, but not the rights of Natives.....
Joseph asks, "HOW MUCH of his legacy are we allowed to celebrate?" Do we discard his wisdom?
Do we preserve what was good? JCP says Cosby's legacy will depend on WHAT HE DOES NOW.
I believe he should "confess or admit that what he did was wrong". What SAY YOU?
And please check out Joseph's page, I've linked it to his name above.
