Rethinking the ‘problems of black marriage’ February 16, 2016

Interesting read, although I don’t agree with all of her conclusions.

As many have wondered why Camille Cosby continues to stand by her husband, Bill, in the wake of so many allegations of sexual abuse — including me — the comedian recently was defended by the woman who played his TV wife, Phylicia Rashad. And so was Camille. “This is a tough woman, a smart woman,” Rashad said of Cosby’s wife of 50 years. “She’s no pushover.”

Her comment of Camille as a “tough woman” could not have come at a more interesting time, as I had just stumbled upon a study, “Black Marriage Through the Prism of Gender Race, and Class,” by Kecia R. Johnson, an assistant professor at Florida State University, and Karyn Loscocco, a sociologist at the University of Albany.
