Quote of the Day: Evin Cosby on Privilege

- By Bossip Staff

Bill Cosby’s daughter on being privileged:

“My own people used to say to me, ‘You speak like a white woman,'” said the youngest daughter of Bill and Camille Cosby at her chic new boutique, PB & Caviar, in Tribeca.

“What does that even mean, anyway? Everyone has their way of speaking and living their life. No one should be judging and assuming that because I’m black, I have to speak in that hip-hop way. That’s something I prefer not to do.”

“I always went to private schools – Bank Street elementary, Columbia Prep – so I was surrounded by people like me. Not so much African-American, but privileged. I don’t really have a connection to other people who didn’t have my lifestyle. But my dad is very into helping people from his own community in Philadelphia.”

Wow, she sounds awfully ‘sheltered’. SMH at “I have to speak in that hip-hop way”. Mind you, this broad sells those little newborn stillettos at this store too.
