Men and women cheat in relationships that is reality. My opinion in this present day mass-media driven “High Tech Lynching” of Bill Cosby is not the first time a high-profile / star status Black American was falsely accused by mass-media reporting crumbs placed by conspirators / hidden hands to attack, defame, and destroy an individual reputation and life works.
Let me count the ways.
During the Jim Crow Era of American races history. American justice turn its back on estimated 6000 Black men and boys lynched by White mobs. The White mobs justified their weekly devilish deeds on an average of two (2) lynchings a week, over a period 100 years. Many of these lynchings publicized and advertised, before they occurred, in local newspapers county-by-county in America Racist society.
Of course that was then and this is now where the 20th and 21st centuries American Black men of renowned fame and status become targets of destruction. Utilizing mass-media reporting false allegations. Many of these media driven devilish campaigns end in Black men names defamed, financial resources depleted, fighting false charges in courts of law, and professional careers destroyed. Resulting in time spent in prisons and more importantly their histories of good works fighting the good fight altered in the eyes of their admirers. These results of spreading mass lies and false allegations define the new age lynching called “High-Tech Lynching.”
Let’s continue counting modern day lynching of Black man in the American society…A picture is said to be worth a thousand words. Take a look at the photos below. What do they suggest about the many ways to lynch a Black man?
Just to mention a few Black men by name who suffer(ed) from Lynchings.
Marcus Garvey, was charge with trump up charges by the FBI then later deported out of America.
Martin Luther King was falsely accused.
W.E.B. Dubois was falsely accused of being a communist then forced to move and later die in Ghana.
Minister Louis Farrakhan lives today under false charges of being anti-Semitic.
Fred Hamilton of Chicago killed by Chicago Police, in a police raid under the guise of false allegations.
Huey P. Newton was set-up by false charges then sent to prison.
O.J. Simpson in my opinion, was lure to the murder scene by “hidden hands,” charged with the murders then proved his innocence in a court of law, but his reputation is ruin in the eyes of the society and his many previous admires.
Michael Jackson fought against false allegations and criminal charges which one accuser later recanted and stated his family and attorney’s co-hearse him. You all should know how that tragedy viewed by the eyes of the greater society.
President Bill Clinton was set-up through an act of consensual sex.
Presidents Barrack Obama falsely accused of every sin under the Sun.
Stevie Wonder career came under attack and almost destroy because he took a stance against South Africa Apartheid regime uniting other major entertainers not to play “Sun City”
Dick Gregory entertainment career destroy. Mr. Gregory used his fame, and fortune as a platform to advocate for American civil and human rights for Black Americans.
Even the well-beloved Jesus Christ, loved and worship by billions of people of all races today was falsely accused made to appear guilty of false charges. You all know how that ended for JC.
I’m sure many of you reading can add to this partial list of Black men falsely accused of perpetrating crimes and dastardly deeds on unsuspecting others. The charges do not fit their known public profiles which greatly differs with their professional careers especially when these people use their honorable statuses in the society and community as a platform to fight for, or speak on behalf of the poor and disenfranchised members of the American society.
Am I stretching my argument with examples of well-known Black men and others who worked and advocated for common causes to uplift humanity, group or otherwise, and correct injustices in our society to re-balance the scale of justice and equality statuses between the Elite and Common People?
I think not…
