The allegations of rape against actor Bill Cosby have been in the headlines for the past few weeks. The newsworthiness of this story can be attributed to America’s obsession with celebrities and their ignoble scandals, as well as the renewed national conversation on rape and rape culture. Race even plays a part in Cosby’s saga, as he is one of the most prolific black celebrity icons of all time.
In 1983, both of my parents came from Colombia to the United States on student visas to pursue graduate studies at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Over the course of the years, they were granted legal residency and eventually became naturalized U.S. citizens.
