For Harriett Writer On Monique Pressley, The Black Female Cosby Attorney
(One of the two or three medium to dark skinned black females with black features that Bill Cosby has been near in 5 decades)
"Could it be the Black community has so internalized the idea of Black Excellence as an exception—rather than the rule—that some of us are willing to settle for the likes of Pressley and Cosby? Black excellence doesn't always look like a well-educated, Black lawyer viscerally defending a Black man. Can we find Black Excellence in the Black rape survivors—the ones doing all they can to survive in a world that consistently blames, shames, and ignores them?"
