Yes, I know I’m being totally “extra” right now, but it’s also totally warranted!
The reality is that the body of Christ is already a multicultural Church. We just spend so much time in our cozy subgroups that we’ve convinced ourselves that we aren’t diverse.

I am not here to put my two cents in on what Cosby may or may not have done. I trust the Lord will sort that out and work in our justice system as necessary. I am, however, glad to hear that there is a retrial on the horizon.
When I was a child I lived in a county where there were so many different cultures I never had the opportunity to see myself, or anyone else, as different.
