Most people have a distorted image of Bill Cosby. He has been a lifelong racist. His comedy has ALWAYS played heavily upon strong racial stereotypes. The only time he portrayed black people nicely is when he was blowing smoke up his own ass portraying the lovable, Mr. Perfect - Dr. Huxtable. Cosby often criticized black people and black culture..
Take a look at this compilation of Cosby's animated show. Do you think that this show could be aired on public television anymore? Is it not extremely stereotypical and racist? Notice that the only "normal" character in the show is "Bill" the character based on Cosby. The rest of them are an incredibly obese pig, and buck toothed fool, a slick pimp, an annoying midget, some Zulu who is dumb as dirt, and a moron whose head is covered by a stupid hat with his eyes poking through holes. This is hardly flattering to black people. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMx9mqyLQ-g
