Bill Cosby Claims Racism Playing Role In Sexual Assault Allegations

Bill Cosby is speaking out ahead of his sexual assault trial in June.

In an appearance on SiriusXM, Cosby claimed that racism -- and not his actions -- may have played a role in the allegations.

The actor-comedian was asked about his daughter Ensa Cosby's comments that "racism has played a big role in all aspects."

"Could be, could be," Cosby said. "I can't say anything, but there are certain things that I look at, and I apply to the situation, and there are so many tentacles."

"So many different... 'nefarious' is a great word. And I just truly believe that some of it may very well be that."

When host Michael Smerconish pointed out that his accusers are both white and black, he replied: "Let me put it to you this way: When you look at the power structure, and when you look at individuals, there are some people who can very well be motivated by whether or not they're going to work. Or whether or not they might be able to get back at someone."

"So if it's in terms of whatever the choice is, I think that you can also examine individuals and situations and they will come out differently. So it's not all, not every, but I do think that there's some."

Cosby is facing three counts of aggravated indecent assault for allegedly drugging and sexually assaulting former Temple University employee Andrea Constand.

"If a jury says so forth and so on, there's still public opinion," Cosby said. "And if the jury comes for the other side of the so forth and so on, it's still public opinion. So I think it's something that you never will be able to satisfy all minds and all behaviors."

"I know the side that I'm on and the side that I'm hoping for."

As for whether he lost the support of his wife, Camille, during the scandal, Cosby said: "Never, never."
