You can get with this or you can get with that: Phylicia Rashad vs Andrea Constand

Back in the days there was a catchy rap song and the hook went like this “You can get with this or you can get with that.” We hate to compare people but this situation demands some critical investigation.  Above are two pictures of women. The one on the left is the beautiful actress Phylicia Rashad who worked with Bill Cosby on the most popular black TV show ever. Her role as Clair Huxtable on the sitcom The Cosby Show landed her an EMMY nomination in 1985 and 1986. Aside from acting Rashad graduated Magna Cum Laude from Howard University. With such an amazing woman around Mr Bill Cosby why would he not slip her a qualude and had his way. On every situation she defends him as a upright respectful man.

The woman on the right is the very manly Andrea Constand, an out LESBIAN ex basketball player from Canada. She accused Bill Cosby of drugging her with pills and sexually assaulting her in his home while she worked at Temple University. All criminal charges against Cosby in February 2005 were dropped due to a lack of evidence by Constand. When the criminal charges were not pursued, Constand launched a civil suit against Cosby in March 2005. Cosby settled that suit for undisclosed terms a year later. Andrea Constant is reported to have been living off that money she obtained from the settlement.

The logic doesn’t add up. Phylicia Rashad, the beautiful intelligent woman you are alone with for decades…no rape, no drugging, nothing but respect. But Andrea Constant, the manly not so attractive lesbian female jock, you drug, and assault? Cmon something doesn’t add up.

Here is a quote from Phylicia Rashad on ABC NEWS. “What you’re seeing is the destruction of a legacy. And I think it’s orchestrated. I don’t know why or who’s doing it, but it’s the legacy. And it’s a legacy that is so important to the culture,” she said. “This show represented America to the outside world. This was the American family. And now you’re seeing it being destroyed. Why?”
