    Bill Cosby isn’t anyone’s Dr. Huxtable anymore.

    The outspoken actor and activist recently compared today’s Republicans to racist segregationists for staying in their seats during the president’s State of the Union Address.

    During a discussion about the Voting Rights Act in a (debatable) post racial society on “Starting Point” with CNN’s Soledad O’Brien, he pointed to the prevalent racism of today.

    O’Brien gleaned to Cosby’s achievements in an intense period in American history and noted that it may have appeared to some that the nation progressed to a post racial society.

    “I read about you, at the same time the fight for rights in the South was going on,” she said to Cosby, “you were on the verge of winning an Emmy award. First black man – in 1966 you would win an Emmy award. And the show, ‘I Spy,’ was banned in the South.”
