Actor Bill Duke Speaks On Bill Cosby. Bill Dukes is a great director. And, his role in Predator was my favorite.
Is there some truth to what Bill Duke said?
Actor Bill Duke speaks on Bill Cosby. Listen, Bill Duke has been a beast behind the scenes. His work is remarkable, to say the least.
I could be biased, but Bill Duke in one of the best directors. During his interview with hosts O’God and SamAnt clearly Bill had the inside scoop.
Especially, as it relates to Bill Cosby. Is it possible that Bill Cosby has been treated unfairly? What Bill suggested happens to black actors vs. others is true.
In fact, it does seem as though black entertainers are targeted unfairly. It is almost like society winks at white entertainers crimes. But black entertainers careers are shattered.
In other words, black entertainers fate is inevitable. Whereas, some white entertainers such as Woody Allen and Harvey Weinstein allegedly are given a pass.
Of course, historically, this has been the case across the board. Blacks whether in entertainment, sports or other public arenas have been ostracized for any trouble with the law.
Furthermore, I am sure Bill knows first hand what he speaks about. This great actor/director has been in the entertainment business for over 40 years, as reported by Hollywood Soap Box.
Some of you may not remember this, but Bill was one of the actors in the original movie “Car Wash.” His character Abdul was impressive.
Not to mention, Bill starred alongside the late great comedian/actor Richard Pryor.
