In an exclusive phone call (from the jail) Bill Cosby shared his thoughts with BlackPressUSA yesterday afternoon.
In a telephone call, Cosby said he’s investing his energy educating and energizing a huge number of African American detainees .
The 82-year-old actor, best known (among boomer generation) for his 1980s-era sitcom, “The Cosby Show”was condemned to serve 3-to-10-years in Pennsylvania’s jail following his September 2018 conviction on charges of aggravated indecent attack.
Except if he gets alleviation from the state’s investigative courts, Cosby said he completely envisions carrying out his whole punishment, saying he’s not guilty and will never confess to something he didn’t do.
During the call he was in a good mood and ready to blame everyone else for his mistakes. In his words:
“I have eight years and nine months left, when I come up for parole, they’re not going to hear me say that I have remorse. I was there. I don’t care what group of people come along and talk about this when they weren’t there. They don’t know.”
He said his trials were a sham, unjust and not fair.
“It’s all a set up. That whole jury thing. They were imposters. I know what they’ve done to my people. But my people are going to view me and say, ‘that boy looks good. That boy is strong.’ I have too many heroes that I’ve sat with. Too many heroes whom I listened to like John Henrik Clarke, Kenneth Clark, and Dorothy Height. Those people are very strong, and they saw the rejection of their people. This is political. I can see the whole thing.”
“I am a privileged man in prison,” he stated.
