Katie Couric: Muslim Cosby Show Needed To Fight Anti-Muslim Bigotry

Katie Couric has said that she thought of a way to end some of the hatred and bigotry in America – a Muslim equivalent to the “Cosby Show”.
Couric made the comment on her web show as she discussed the most significant issues of 2010 as it came to a close, including the huge controversy surrounding the mosque that is to be built around ground zero which she said created a terrible sense of racism and hatred towards Muslims.
Half-jokingly, Couric said that maybe what the country needs is a Muslim version of the Cosby Show to open up the eyes of those who are filled with nothing but blind hatred for these people.
The famed news anchor says that people need to change their attitudes about Muslims and a television show depicting what they are really like could do the trick for many.
Couric went on to say that in her experience many people become afraid of what they do not understand, and a Muslim equivalent to the Huxtables could be just what the country needs to stay all of this hate in its tracks.
The statement about the proposed show came when she was talking with Jonathan Martin as well as Sherlyn Huggins-Salomon and Mo Rocca.
