News media blew up television and the internet a few days ago, over Bill Cosby’s sex scandal accusations from years ago. Yes, years ago. There are too many issues that are far more important right now.
I especially don’t feel like reading about something that Bill Cosby did before I was even born. The earliest year I read about, or watched on television news, was 1969. I mean, why bring it up all these years later? Was there a scheme brewing all along? To wait until his bank account was large enough for an enormous amount of hush money?
If the story would have broken years ago when I was a kid, I would have been like, “What? For real? Wow.” So when I learned about the accusations of 77 year-old Bill Cosby, all I said was, “Oh.” That’s because there are more important issues to be discussed at the moment.
Please do not call, text, email, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, or LinkedIn me anything about Bill Cosby right now. Instead, talk to me about any of the following:
- Preventing an Ebola outbreak in the United States
- Ferguson, Missouri. Discuss how we need to convince protesters to not destroy their own communities. Take it to Darren Wilson’s neighborhood, the police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown, an unarmed black male teenager, but was not indicted by the grand jury. NOTE: Okay, so the last sentence may sound mean, but I’m an African-American, so I harbor harsh feelings at times about certain situations. Seriously though, my feelings are the same just as they were with the Rodney King riots in Los Angeles back in the early 90’s. I feel, as hard as it may be, that there should be PEACEFUL protests, not violent acts.
- International wars. ISIS and other terrorist groups.
- How to convince NBC to not end season 1 of new TV show Constantine after only 13 episodes.
- How not to contract salmonella poisoning after eating that prime rib you like to cook for the holidays. I have read so many rib roast recipes, and they all made me nauseous. They want you to take the roast out of the refrigerator, and allow it to reach room temperature before cooking. Then you cook it in the oven for a specified amount of time at a high temperature. You turn the oven off and let it sit in the oven for a few hours because it’s still cooking. That sounds like food borne illness to me. I don’t let any meat that I cook get to room temp before cooking, and I don’t let it set in the oven cooking with it turned off. I slow cook at 200 degrees.
- Bullying in schools
- How to increase voter turnout, especially at mid-term elections
- Getting tech crazed people to realize that we will never live in a paperless society. Whenever the computer systems go down for routine maintenance, or whatever else reason(s) at my job, it’s back to paper. And a large amount of people, if not most, will always prefer printed media. I prefer to hold a book and/or magazine in my hands, rather than to read it digitally.
- VA secret list scandal. Why did it take so long for it to come to light?
- Bigfoot’s whereabouts. Okay, so I threw Sasquatch in there. It’s better than talking about Bill Cosby.
