Bill Cosby said the sexual allegations launched against him could be due to racism.
He made the comments during an interview with Sirius XM’s Michael Smerconish in which he referred to the racism comments made by his daughter, Esna.

“There are so many tentacles. So many different – ‘nefarious’ is a great word. And I just truly believe that some of it may very well be that.”
Ensa Cosby released an audio statement Monday that said “racism has played a big role” is her father’s sex scandal.
“The accusations against my father have been one-sided from the beginning,” Esna Cosby said.
“I’ve witnessed my father’s reputation and legendary works be dismissed without any proof.
Bill Cosby also questioned the timing of the allegations, claiming they were made all at once to sway public opinion.
“So, the piling on, so to speak is a way — and certainly an impressive, impressive way to get public opinion to come to the other side,” Cosby told Smerconish.
Bye, Bill. The interview airs Tuesday at 10 a.m. on Sirius XM’s channel 124.
