Comic Genevieve Joy, thinker/NY Occasions leisure author Lawrence Ware, and novelist Sarahlyn Bruck be a part of your host Mark Linsenmayer to debate how we as spectators cope with entertainers like R. Kelly, Michael Jackson, Woody Allen, et al. All of us watched W. Kamau Bell’s Showtime documentary We Have to Speak About Cosby, so most of our dialogue is round that.

None of us appear capable of separate the artwork from the artist, however this varies by artwork type, how a lot of the particular person’s persona and values went into the artwork, and the specifics of the alleged crimes or dangerous habits. Cosby presents such a dramatic, unambiguous case as a result of he was so universally beloved, and vitally vital to the black group, but his crimes had been so quite a few, heinous, properly documented, and completely undermine the picture that he sought to convey. Does our disillusionment with him maybe mirror not simply on rape tradition however the significance we placed on movie star itself that made Cosby for a very long time “too massive to fail”?

It’s high quality if you happen to haven’t seen the documentary. You possibly can expertise Bell speaking about it on WTF and in Slate. For in-depth information on the fees towards Invoice Cosby, attempt the Chasing Cosby podcast.

Observe us @CAtFightJOy, @law_writes, @sarahlynbruck, and @MarkLinsenmayer.
