    Racists vs. Sexists, who wins in Bill Cosby trial?

    I have been predicting this for a long time, it's an inevitable outcome in a society where people are judged by skin color, gender or other physical attributes, rather than as individuals or by the "content of their character" as MLK said.

    This example is the trial of Bill Cosby - I don't want to post a URL, you can pick your favorite source. The New York Times article blames everything on Fox News!
    www.nytimes.com/2017/06/17/opinion/bill-cosby-and-the-year-of-the-hypocrite

    The black actor/comedian has had a long career but is/was (yesterday's jury decision was a non-decision, a hung jury) charged with using "date-rape" drugs on female(s). One woman, Andrea Constand, has come forward, then a crowd of others, claiming Cosby pulled the same "sexual assault" scheme on them.

    The same crowd that usually attacks the white male as being "racist" and "sexist" now finds itself split into two antagonistic camps - those who perceive this prosecution of Cosby as "racist" and those who see Cosby's activities as "sexist."

    The conflict is not about whether or not an individual committed a crime - it's more about what "group" will win - those who defend Cosby because he is black, or those who defend Constand because she is female.

    Moi, I can only laugh at this meltdown of a socially-engineered society built, not on individual ability or character, but on group identities - rich, poor, black, white, Hispanic, Asians, female, male, homosexual, heterosexual, etc. Justice is not based on the actions or crimes of an individual, but on what "groups" the criminal or victim belongs to, and the perceived historical injustices committed against that group. A society built, not on moral principles, but on an ambiguous and constantly-metamorphosing framework of ethics.

    Barack Obama was elected, because the implied accusation by the media was that if you didn't vote for the black man, you might be a racist. And many whites voted for him because they felt some guilt.

    Hillary Clinton tried a similar appeal: "Vote for me - if you don't, you're a sexist." But that didn't work.

    Is America now at a crossroads, where the socially-engineered, anti-religious, amoral society is being called into question? After Hillary, there was supposed to be a "Hispanic" president (far Left philosophy, of course), then a Gay president. etc...

    OJ Simpson, who obviously murdered two people in a fit of rage, was not convicted by a black jury, in the very epitome of racism triumphing over justice.

    And in Cosby's trial, Cosby was not convicted, against obvious evidence. But the DA has said he is not done yet, he will seek a re-trial ....

    So stay tuned for more thrilling episodes in the post-religious American saga - the continuing meltdown of the socially-engineered society!

    It took them what, 30 years or more to - remember their shame - and come forward? A little bit long in my opinion. One thing his for sure. You party with the rich and famous and want to be a part of them and be with the -in- crowd, it will be for sure no picnic from the Sunday school.

    That's Barack Obama's doing - on his first day in office, in 2008, he changed the statute of limitations on filing a "discrimination" lawsuit. It used to be you could wait for 1 year or so, I don't know, to file a claim. After that, too bad, the clock has expired. But Obama issued an executive order, putting no time limit on seeking redress. So now, if you feel you were discriminated against in 1965, you can file a claim today.

    This is great for the lawyers. The more lawsuits, the more class strife, the richer they get. I think there are more attorneys in Washington than in the entire country of Russia. Every tenth person in the DC metro area is an attorney, and about 50% of the Congress.

    I used to be a big fan of The Cosby show , very witty and charming. He admits to offering 'drugs' to women to calm them down and my understanding is that the main victim stated that she accepted them in good faith!
    So a young white woman accepts an invite to a much older black man's house and then accepts ' tablets' not having a clue what might be in them .......what was she expecting .......afternoon delights? I just don't know what to believe anymore

    Benny, now you've gone and given the girl an idea...

    Well, actually, she was clever to save the stained dress, and produced it after Billy spun, "Not me, I did not have sex with that woman!'

    All wrong, of course.
    -He did not sign an executive order, he signed into law a bill passed by both houses (in Senate, with some republican support). So it's the 'doing' of, well, the legislature and executive together.
    -it does not apply to all discrimination, only wage discrimination, so-called equal pay.
    -It did not institute no time limit whatsoever, it resets the statute of limitations from the time of the _first_ wage discrimination (i.e. setting the wage), to the receipt of the most recent _discriminatory_ paycheck.

    So the only way it applies to someone from 1965 is if the person is still working 52 years later in the same job. And case law is not clear, but the language seems to only apply to _discriminatory_ pay, so if the employer had fixed the wage difference more than a year ago (date of last disciminatory wage), likely would not face a claim.

    And no relevance whatsoever to Cosby case - unless he was paying these women a discriminatory wage.

    NO, it's not ALL wrong, it's 99% CORRECT.

    Before Obama, you had one year to file. After the racist president put in his racist makeover of the law, racists then had an UNLIMITED time to file their complaints of racism and sexism.
