Here's my fury about Cosby. He pretended to actually care about the fate of poc. He doesn't care about black people. He never cared about us. He used it as a cover and prop to get away with his toxic behavior toward women.
Why can't he care about both? He's a sick man for sure, but that doesn't mean he didn't care about anyone/anything else, right? At the end of the day, he is/was a rich celebrity. I'm never surprised when a celebrity is as nasty as anyone else...

I'm with Kamms on the race card. What a ridiculous cop-out.

I do NOT approve of what he did, but there's got to be a hidden agenda(s) behind all of this. The stuff Bill Cosby did--and worse--goes on every day of the week in Hollywood.

I don't think the death of Ennis Cosby was a ramdom happening.

Just my opinion of course but psychopaths, which it seems he is, lack empathy and manipulate people for selfish ends.

I'd say he's more socio than psycho, especially considering his ability to charm America into buying his wholesome Dad image for so long, but otherwise agree. Whatever label you slap on the guy, he understands right from wrong and chooses to disregard it.

I'm not so versed wrt psychology but my understanding is sociopaths are less severe in their actions.

Being charming is part of the deceit psychopaths use.

You may be right regarding terminology, actually.

This is another sad part about this whole story. Some people will use anything to have and get their way.

I’ve read that sociopaths are more the result of their environment, like abuse etc. and have some degree of empathy while a psychopath is, from the get go, void and incapable of developing empathy towards people (and animals).

I would place Cosby at the psychopath level, but I’m not an expert.

I don't think "psychopath" nor "sociopath" are actual psychiatric terms. My understanding is the definitions of these words depends on who you ask.

Nonetheless Cosby's got issues and that's why he's in the replacement for Graterford. (do you guys wish the new building had the same name instead of being given the new name SCI Phoenix?)
