Roland Martin talks to Monique Pressley, Bill Cosby‘s lawyer about taking legal action against the media and the news that Brown, Marquette and Fordham University have stripped Mr. Cosby of his honorary degrees.

Are Bill and Camille Cosby shocked by the latest news?

“I don’t think anything that can be shocked with anything being done. We see tremendous pressure being placed upon venues and universities and even businesses with murals.”

Will the attorney’s go after those who call Mr. Cosby a rapist?

“I think that anyone that is using wisdom on behalf of their companies and universities should think carefully and ensure that they’ve sought counsel before they say things. It’s obvious, that there is a free for all and to now think it’s appropriate to call someone a rapist.”

Should the universities that have stripped the Cosby name also rescind the money given?

“They don’t feel so dishonored that they return the millions of dollars. They don’t feel so dishonored or disrespected that they don’t know what to do with the millions…but there is nothing legally that can be done.”

    Bill Cosby is a serial rapist! No matter what color he is i can’t condone the damage that he has done to these women. I can give any sum of money to organizations that he wants to. The charitable contribution does not detract from the crimes. Black people should not accept this level of criminal behavior among our people just because the person is black and white people have done the same. As Bill said himself, we should hold our community to high standards and not accept any level of criminal behavior.

  4. You all are right, a lots of hypocrisy. If Mr. Cosby is all that the Universities, mass media, etc. believe he is then return every green back that was given to those Universities. Some Black people are always looking for white folks to validate them.

  5. I don’t know what went on but that’s has nothing to do with his college degree and give him back his money dont judge my Heavenly Father does that.

    • How do you know, or anyone else when you were not there? I can say you are a serial rapist, because I feel like it. This whole thing is a mess and I will be glad when it is over!

    You black men need to wake the f up and pay attention, while you’ll condemning this man (BC), if you haven’t gotten your n*gg*r wakeup call yet, just keep living…you will.
    And for you people who are not “taking a stand” it’s the same and falling for anything. Just Keep straddlin’ that fence.

    It’s men in Hollywood, from directors, producers, and actors who have been CONVICTED of abuse against woman, but still maintain their careers and dignity, TV shows and movies are still in rotation (Stephen Collins from 7th Heaven for starters) who admitted he molested a child. One even married his victim (Woody Allen). Oh I forgot they’re white and white is always right.
    In 2015 it’s still the stigma of black men being with white women in any sexual nature, and most all BC “accusers” are white, of course white America can’t have that. Look at Andre Romelle Young, you know him as Dr. Dre, he’s accused and convicted of beating a few black women, but did Apple sever ties? Answer HELL NO, these women were black not white. Did that school refuse his money contribution although he abused women? Again HELL NO.

    These schools & universities are only “stripping” these honorary degrees from Bill Cosby because he is black. POINT BLANK THAT’S IT. Thomas Jefferson owned slaves and presumably raped his slave/maid and fathered children, his honorary degree wasn’t stripped. These schools and universities are trying to say what Mr. Cosby was accused of goes against their stance of abuse against woman. However, no money was returned (even when they said they would). Are they going back through history to find others who have been not just accused of abuse but actually convicted and strip there degrees? Answer HELL NO! Let’s call a spade a spade.
    And also if they want to tell the story, tell all the whole story, including the ones of his generosity for students, male and female that he graciously stroked checks for entire tuitions because they couldn’t afford to get an education. Along with the millions in donations.

    Well that’s a good question are they ready to return the money? I think not. And let me be clear I am not taking a side in this IJS…………
