I spent my middle years watching the Bill Cosby show which depicted an ordinary Negro family as it spent their daily life. The show was funny, ironic, and just plain normal. The point of the Bill Cosby show was to prove to white America that a Negro family could be just as normal as the average white clan. Children committed normal acts of silliness and there was always dad and mom to correct them. The essence of the Cosby show is that normality was as normal among Negroes as among whites. Regardless of the problem, dad Bill had a solution that invariably entailed a humorous comment. So, the typical white family came to believe that Negroes were just like them.
Recent allegations of the sexual predator who is known as Bill Cosby are very confusing to the average American. He was such an icon of NORMALITY that to now know that he was a normal sexual nut case leaves one gasping for breath. Among the dozen or so women who now insist that he forced himself upon them, Angela Lewis charged that he forced his hand above her hand and made it rub his penis. He needed a massage. The statue of limitations has run out so Bill will not be compelled to be in a court defending himself. Such is life in America, where everything is now, NORMAL.
