*Central State University in Wilberforce, Ohio has been covering up Bill Cosby’s name on the outside of its communications center ever since dozens of women have come forward to accuse him of sexual assault.

But the historically black college announced Friday it has now permanently removed the name Camille O. & William H. Cosby Communications Center. The building has been renamed the CSU Communications Center.

The school had been temporarily covering Cosby’s name since July while it made a final decision. Central State President Cynthia Jackson-Hammond had called circumstances surrounding the comedian’s situation “troublesome and disappointing to all.”

The Cosby family has donated more than $2 million to the university.

  1. Black men are being disproportionately accused and imprisoned for sexual assaults. African-American men, though 7.5 percent of U.S.’s population, are 65 percent of the people imprisoned for sexual assaults. And they are also 62 percent of the people DNA testing have exonerated from false imprisonment. The findings indicate that Black men are not disproportionately committing crimes, but rather are disproportionately imprisoned due to their being more fiercely pursued. Central State University should address this problem, not reverence the lynching of a Black man who has not been found guilty by a criminal court.
