Racial Activist Calls Cosby Trial ‘White Supremacist Witch Hunt’

Amber Athey White House Correspondent

Author and “anti-racism strategist” Tariq Nasheed believes the Bill Cosby rape trial, which starts Monday, is a “white supremacist witch hunt.”

“The racially motivated Bill Cosby ‘rape’ trial starts today,” Nasheed tweeted Monday morning.

Cosby is accused of sexually assaulting more than 50 women, but only two will publicly testify during the rape trial. Many of the accusers say that Cosby drugged and assaulted them.

Nasheed followed up his race-baiting with another tweet alleging that the accusations are just a “witch hunt” propelled by white supremacy.

“When they put all the white female Bill Cosby “rape” accusers on the cover of NY mag, we knew this was just a white supremacists witch hunt”

The photo of NY Magazine that Nasheed shared cropped out two entire rows of victims which include several women of color.

Nasheed has tweeted his support for Cosby in the past.
