Bill Cosby Gives First Interview After Prison Release


At a press conference on Wednesday, Cosby’s spokesman did all the talking after his surprise release from prison today was overturned by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. He served more than two years in prison for raping Andrea Constand.

Frankie Darcell, a Detroit radio host who spoke with the 83-year-old comedian after his release, interviewed him for the first time since he was released.

“There are a few people who follow the correct path but don’t join in. However, Frankie, here is what is clearly visible to you.

“As Frankie Darcell says: ‘It is not what they are doing to you, it is what you aren’t doing’ And when you are Frankie Darcell, and you face it, you are amazing. Use this opportunity to add something new to your repertoire, because your audience needs the truth, it needs clarity, and it needs guidance, and it needs to know where to go and what to do,” Cosby explained.

In Cosby’s opinion, the issue of injustice does not belong just to African-Americans – it belongs to all African-Americans mistreated in prison, regardless of race, colour, or creed.
