20 Years Later: Ron Goldman & Nicole Brown Simpson, RIP; How the Kardashians Learned OJ Trial Branding

By Debbie Schlussel

Twenty years ago today, O.J. Brown Simpson murdered Ron Goldman, a waiter, and Nicole Brown Simpson, Simpson’s ex-wife. Sadly, a mostly Black jury in his criminal trial acquitted the former pro football player, even with overwhelming evidence that he did it (and absolutely no evidence implicating anyone else or even showing a motive for anyone else). But America–and the Kardashians–learned from the O.J. trial and not in a good way. It was the end of telling the truth about race in America, and the beginning of the intensification of White guilt that paved the way for Barack Obama’s election.

OJ Simpson


Last night, NBC News “Dateline” had a two-hour special on the case, which was somewhat interesting in that it showed a lot of the screw-ups of prosecutors Marcia Clark and Christopher Darden, and a lot of the stuff the jury never got to hear. Most notably, the special featured a lot of insightful observations by the spunky then-LAPD detective Tom Lange. If you were murdered, you’d want this guy to be the investigator. But if you believe any of this–anything that wasn’t put forth at trial, and there was a lot that should have been–would have made a difference, you do not understand Black racism in America and the jury’s desire to “get Whitey” by allowing a rich, famous Black man to get away with the murder of two crackaz. That is where the NBC special failed (and wouldn’t dare tread). And while asking O.J. Simpson to try on the gloves–which he predictably faked and pretended did not fit (plus he was wearing surgical gloves underneath, so of course they wouldn’t fit)–was a mistake, the racist jury wanted this man to go free no matter what, and they were determined to make that happen. It was Rodney King-inspired revenge.

If you were alive and old enough to understand what was going on then, you remember the chase in the White Ford Bronco, in which O.J. Simpson had a disguise and cash. He was headed to Mexico and also wrote a “farewell note,” which was apparently a suicide or escape note. These weren’t the actions of an innocent man. Neither was his farewell note, which jurors weren’t allowed to hear about, thanks for attention-seeking, celebrity-wannabe Lance Ito, who had no control over his coutroom and bent over and assumed the position for the grandstanding O.J. defense team. O.J.’s army of competing egomaniacs–Johnnie Cochran, Alan Dershowitz, Robert Shapiro, and F. Lee Bailey (who was later disbarred in Florida).

Robert Kardashian–now posthumously famous only for being the dad of a porn star who has created a reality TV enterprise of nothingness–was also “representing” O.J., but hadn’t been a licensed attorney for some time and had to reactivate his law license, so that he could ostensibly “represent” Simpson. But, in fact, he knew a lot of stuff that implicated Simpson–and was believed to have helped Simpson dispose of evidence including Simpson’s clothes–and the law license thing was done so he would be covered by attorney-client privilege. Kardashian, by the way, read O.J.’s farewell note to the press, but the jury was never allowed to know about the letter.

And while Kardashian was on O.J.’s side (though he later expressed doubts and I believe he knew for sure O.J. did it), his ex-wife, Kris Jenner, mom/pimp of Kim Kardashian, was squarely against Simpson. She was a friend of ex-wife/victim Nicole and said the woman warned Jenner that O.J. was going to kill her. But Jenner learned something from this trial that would turn her and her kids into multi-millionaires: that interracial relationships were a big fascination with America. That Simpson was Black and his ex-wife White was the reason, ultimately, that everyone was interested in this trial. And, yes, his football fame was part of it, but the race thing was the bigger factor. At that time, interracial marriages and relationships weren’t as common, and people were curious.

I think Mrs. Jenner saw that interracial stuff got attention. TV attention. Eyeballs. Advertisers. Moolah. And 20 years later, she’s transformed the murder of her White friend by a Black ex-husband into a different spectacle: the White guilt-laden American public’s appreciation for all things interracial–Barack Obama, the porn movie Kim Kardashian shot with rapper Ray J and so on. And she found a way to make money off of it. Her daughter made the sex tape with Ray J in 2003, and it was “leaked” to the press in 2007. And the rest is pop culture faux-history.

Jenner turned the tape into millions for the whole family: reality TV shows, fake weddings, and so on. She saw that she could spin the interracial stuff into something of glamor, something that made her a high-tech, modern day Rumpelstiltskin (apologies to straw for the comparison with Kardashians). And so, today, we have America fascinated with Kim, Khloe, Kylie, Kendall, and their assorted relationships with Black men. Instead of murder, there are mergers. And branding. See, O.J. missed his calling.

And what of the participants in the O.J. trial circus?

* Johnnie Cochran–the Al Sharpton of trial lawyers–hung out with the worst Black racists and represented some of them. Though he is dead, he inspired a generation–actually a couple of generations–of demagogues-at-law working for Race, Baiting & Howe.

* Mark Fuhrman–because of controversy over tapes in which he used the N-word—asserted his Fifth Amendment rights at the trial and didn’t testify about any of the evidence he found, leaving the jury to believe he planted it (they said so on last night’s NBC special and Detective Lange lambasted Fuhrman for this absurd move). He was rewarded for this idiocy by FOX News which made him a paid contributor. And he had several book deals.

* Kato Kaelin, the Spicoli-esque pool boy, also didn’t help much and used his time on the stand to joke and audition for the cameras. It worked. He got multiple dopey reality TV show gigs and now has a clothing line. Who the hell would buy or wear that? But, then again, the Kardashians are a multi-million dollar brand.

* Denise Brown, Nicole Brown Simpson’s media whore sister, used her fame to make gazillions. She spoke out as an “expert” on battered women and, hilariously, appeared at the Muslim-dominated Arab Community Center for Economic and Social Services (ACCESS) agency. Cha-ching. The agency is well-known for helping import illegal alien Muslim men into the U.S. while they beat their wives. Oh, and for supporting aid to Hezbollah and HAMAS–organizations that I’m sure don’t have any wife-beaters at all because, hey, they love and respect women.

I guarantee you that Brown loved the cameras a lot more than the memory of her dead sister. And I also guarantee that not a single man stopped battering a woman because Denise Brown made a paid speech. She was the #BringBackOurGirls hashtag of the 90s. Brown got mad that Kris Jenner horned in on her O.J. trial money stream by writing a book about it. The cat-fight wasn’t that entertaining, though.

* Greta Van Susteren, the pro-O.J. liberal criminal defense attorney and apologist, was awarded a CNN show and then one on FOX. To date, I can’t name a single insightful or informative thing this New Age yakker has ever said.

* Ditto for Star Jones, the calorically gifted former prosecutor, who was awarded and then dethroned from her perch at ABC yenta hag-fest, “The View.” And, before and after, took every opportunity to serve as apologist for other Black murderers of White people, like Lemrick Nelson, who murdered Yankel Rosenbaum, the Chassidic Jew whom he stabbed to death, upon Al Sharpton’s incitement.

And, of course, there are the others. O.J. Simpson got his, even if it was in a different criminal case. He’s grown old in prison, and if and when he gets out, the Goldmans will be there to collect on the civil judgment they got against him.

In the end, the biggest victims here were Ron Goldman and his surviving family members–most notably his dad, Fred Goldman, and sister, Kim Goldman. They didn’t ask to be entangled into O.J. Simpson’s tragic, deadly world. We don’t know what Ron Goldman’s actual connection with Nicole Brown Simpson was (just a nice waiter walking her home or a nice waiter who would soon make contact with the biological disease machine that was Nicole Brown Simpson’s nether regions). But he surely didn’t expect or deserve his fate.

I don’t really feel too sorry for Nicole Brown Simpson, the football slut who got around (and also was, um, “dating”–euphemism–Marcus Allen, another Heisman winner). True, she divorced O.J., but still maintained a sexual relationship with him. In the end, we choose who we choose, and she chose a batterer with whom she chose to stay and continue to hang out because she enjoyed the glamor and trappings of the good life, just as her friend Kris Jenner does now.

And so America’s first interracial reality show celebrates its 20th. But, as Barack Obama told us, we are now in the era of post-racialism, and so if he had a son who was a Heisman trophy winner and NBC Sports commentator . . . .

To me, the biggest legacy of the O.J. Simpson case is that, now, other grandstanders and frauds, like Sean Hannity and Mark Levin, have adopted O.J.’s slogan about “looking for the real killers” when talking about other blatant murderers who got away with it, and whom they defend.

In any event, Ron Goldman, Of Blessed Memory, may you have some peace.

And to the rest of you bloodsucker participants in the O.J. trial, who did nothing to help lock him up or heal America from the racist decision of the jury, twenty years of your pap, reality shows, empty FOX News yakking, and clothing lines is enough.

America can’t forget about you too soon.

It’s time for you to shut the bleep up now.

Marcia Clark attempted to convert the entire case to digital format via some [boring] binary code-like story and the jury was instantly bored senseless. The moment Simpson was acquitted, Chris Darden broke out in tears like a big pussy. Today he is a law professor. Leadership by example? Simpson did everything but shoot a music video of the murder. Even on the audio tape in Vegas he is heard negatively referring to the Goldman family by calling them “The Golddiggers”. The asshole makes $50,000 per month for life from his NFL pension. But he didn’t want his memorabilia auctioned publicly, because Fred Goldman would take a chunk of the proceeds by virtue of the civil trial. Simpson is a pig and he sits exactly where he belongs.

#1 VATO on June 12, 2014 at 6:18 pm

Well, Deb, the facts are actually worse than what you have printed. According to Marcia Clark, she and her co-incompetent, Chris Darden, started having an affair, in the OFFICE, during the OJ trial. They should have focused on winning the case instead of screwing around. They left out so much damning evidence, and during the course of the trial, they should have demanded a mistrial for the stunt pulled by the defense counsel. In fact, they should have anticipated that move.

It does not surprise me that Chris Darden is a law professor. First, he is an incompetent not fit to practice law, like most law professors. Second, law schools, for the past 15-20 years, have been on a big push to hire minorities, left wingers, etc. Show me a conservative white male law professor and I will show you an antique.

OJ was tried after the trial, for two different assaults, including a felonious assault, until he pulled his crap in the state of Nevada, a state which does not tolerate criminality, except by Harry Reid.

Final Note: I had a next door neighbor, a black local anchor, who was happy that OJ got off. Why? Because he felt it was wrong for a white woman to take another black man away. And this was otherwise a very intelligent person.

Jonathan E. Grant on June 12, 2014 at 6:37 pm

    Excellent points.
    The assessment of OJ’s ex is brutal but accurate. Can’t argue with facts. It also highlighted some key subject matter for me to bring up to new acquaintances to see how much we agreed on. If they were not in agreement with me on it for the most part, I knew I didn’t want to have much to do with them and it was a little window into their mindset. So much white guilt. But I also realized I shared the world with even more idiots than I once thought.

    samurai on June 17, 2014 at 10:22 pm

Bob Shapiro was originally selected by Simpson as lead counsel. He was mainly concerned with the reality of a death sentence and was trying to hammer out a sensible plea. Early on, there wasn’t much doubt of who-dunnit you see. Also Debbie, it is hard for me to lump Bob Shapiro into that scrap heap, with all the other defense team shitheads. Shapiro and Bailey were best of friends, and Bailey was the Padrino of Grant Shapiro. The Shapiro kid sadly overdosed from methamphetamine a couple of years after the trial, and Bailey & Shapiro haven’t spoken since.

#1 VATO on June 12, 2014 at 6:40 pm

Two more notes:

When I did criminal law, the moronic defendants wore shirts saying, “free OJ,” (which did not impress the judges). Meanwhile, OJ never did a thing for the black community, and primarily hung around the white community, dating white girls, marrying a white girl, etc.

Second, note that not a single President has tried Simpson for the violation of Nicole Brown Simpson’s (woman) and Ron Goldman’s (white) civil rights violations. If the situations were reversed….

I can only hope that some of the jurors lose their loved ones in the same brutal way that the Goldmans lost their child.

Jonathan E. Grant on June 12, 2014 at 6:43 pm

It was BRENT Shapiro who tragically overdose on MDMA. Grant is his brother.

#1 VATO on June 12, 2014 at 6:52 pm

Once Mark Fuhrman’s racist rhetoric came out, Blacks became blinded with innocence. There could have been a camera crew filming OJ and the conviction would not have happened. Thats the reality of it.
Case point, ask Blacks now, or a year removed from the trial, we all say he was guilty as hell. Its just the reality, any hint of racism, using racial epithets, a rationale is lost. That is the truth.
However I disagree with this statement ” White guilt that paved the way for Barack Obama’s election.”
This statement is disingenuous to whites. As if the only reason why the whites voted for the prez, was out of guilt. That’s loony talk. Now I will agree that if Bush hadn’t made such a debacle of things, whites wouldn’t have easily elected the current pres, but after Bush, no way was a Repub getting back in there immediately. No way. Regardless of what you think of the president, the man interviewed very well for the job, interviewed damn well. Now job performance, that’s another topic.

BigD on June 12, 2014 at 7:06 pm

    Actually BigD, stupid as it sounds, I have met some whites who voted for Obama because he was black, saying that would “heal the nation” or show blacks that whites aren’t racist. Actually, it showed the opposite.

    Jonathan E. Grant on June 12, 2014 at 8:44 pm

    “Case point, ask Blacks now, or a year removed from the trial, we all say he was guilty as hell.”

    BigD, this is not so. Many blacks still think he’s innocent. Something like 43%.

    skzion on June 13, 2014 at 3:00 pm

I couldn’t watch … Sorry

Darrell L. Hicks on June 12, 2014 at 7:29 pm

And even if the mostly Black RACIST jury had seen and heard all the evidence that they didn’t get to read or hear, it still would never have changed their ignorant,childish,revenge-filled,racist minds.

CharlesMartel on June 12, 2014 at 8:23 pm

quite a show

budsuds on June 12, 2014 at 8:38 pm

This trial was really when America became a voyeur of its own destruction.
If you didn’t really care about the “football slut who got around” then you could pretend to care about her family.
What it meant for America.
What was being said about racism in America, about celebrity and on and on.

But this was never about anything except a woman who was brutally murdered and when America forgot that it took a walk down a very dark road that some have seen in their dreams.

People watched America sleepwalk along this path. It was impossible to stir her.

budsuds on June 12, 2014 at 8:39 pm

Does anyone remember when it came out that the parents of Nicole Brown, who was a waitress, let her move in with OJ Simpson and in return her father got an insurance agency courtesy of OJ and his contacts?

Jonathan E. Grant on June 12, 2014 at 8:47 pm

    I do remember something about that.
    Such a pimp. The decline of a country was in motion. I remember my own ex back then trying to get me to hang out with some of her old high school friends that were “partiers” and I wasn’t down with it. I was the bad guy.lol I didn’t want friends in low places.

    samurai on June 17, 2014 at 10:29 pm

“It was the end of telling the truth about race in America, and the beginning of the intensification of White guilt that paved the way for Barack Obama’s election.”

So prophetic and deep, Debbie. Great article.

I just pray that the idiot, guilty, white hand-wringers have had enough after 2016 of the idiot affirmative-action Presidency.

DS_ROCKS! on June 12, 2014 at 8:50 pm

I remember that day. I was at work and we had our radios on (back then we could) and when the verdict was announced all the black guys at work were hoopin’ it up and high fivin’ each other while the white folks looked on in total disgust. The few black gals we had at the place just kinda’ looked…surprised, probably unsure of what they felt.

BTW: Judging from the expression on that court cop’s face my guess is that he was thinking: “are you F***!n’ kidding me!?!”

theShadow on June 12, 2014 at 9:27 pm

Has it been twenty years already?

ebayer on June 12, 2014 at 9:28 pm

A few random thoughts from The Resident Dumb Blond(e).

The White Ford Bronco “chase” at 35 mph on June 17, 1994 ruined a fantastic NY Knicks playoff game for me, as the network switched almost exclusively to the dumbass “chase.”

The Oprah had already captured the minds of many in white America, weaving her part of the web of New Age Slavery as I began calling it at the time, incorporating phenomena occurring in all areas of society.

The Reign of The Great StainMaker was well under way, and it was around the time of the verdict, on October 3, 1995 or shortly thereafter, that I began using the phrase “Demmicans and Republicrats,” seeing that we had already been sold out by our “employees.”

Indeed, October 3, 1995, the date of the acquittal, became one of the darkest days in American judicial history, as that day the general populace officially cast off all restraint with regard to any sense of justice and dignity among themselves. I literally witnessed jubilation break out across NYC, people dancing in the streets, exclaiming joy wherever you went.

The stage was set for many negative things in America, such as the acceptance of any and all forms of behavior by any and all people who should rightfully serve as role models. Athletes, politicians, public figures of any stripe, they all need to comport themselves in a certain way, whether they like it or not. But the public gave the green light by caving its collective character on the O.J. case, and thereby ushered in the idea that we could be made easily in to pawns. And so we are.

The O.J. case also begat the phrase “if it doesn’t fit, you must acquit,” which gave way to a form of speech used to make a point by speaking in the same rhythm and timbre.

‘The plan we’ve baked, is to let ’em eat cake.’ Just as an example. Not so funny.

And this particular nation shaping event began 20 years ago today.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on June 12, 2014 at 9:29 pm

read the tell all book by OJ… I fckn did it

HK on June 13, 2014 at 12:31 am

I am convinced that prior to the jury’s not guilty verdict OJ admitted at least twice to having committed the crime. Originally I believe he did this to his first lawyer, Howard Weitzman (who was also John DeLorean’s lawyer). When I saw Wietzman say on TV that OJ would be getting another lawyer I was convinced that OJ had confessed to him and at that point Weitzman told him to get another lawyer and not to confess to that lawyer lest it potentially hurt that lawyer’s ability to defend OJ.

The second time was in Prison. One of the prison guards heard OJ yell something during a meeting OJ had with his lawyer. The Prison guard submitted an affidavit stating what he heard. Lance Ito refused to admit it as evidence, claiming it was a violation of the attorney client privileged.

The problem with the privilege argument is that the Prison guard was not doing anything to Eavesdrop. He was performing his normal duties and was located where he was supposed to be. If OJ had spoken in a normal voice the Prison guard would not have heard him. However Lance Ito ruled that since the court and the state where responsible for setting up and forcing the environment where the meeting took place it would be a violation of privilege to allow the affidavit in as evidence.

I_AM_ME on June 13, 2014 at 9:29 am

    In fact O.J. confessed when he was first interviewed after the chase; however, no defense attorney was present, and therefore, under the Miranda exclusionary rule, the confession was not admissible.

    Trust me on June 14, 2014 at 10:17 pm

134 days if media masturbation.

When Ito allowed the proceedings to be telecast he started the whole circus.

Having recently served on a jury (Federal DUI case on a military base) I was the only juror that believed three (3) cops testimony that they smelled alcohol on the accused breath. She refused a sobriety test. The rest of the jury wanted to go home and watch “I Love Lucy” reruns. She was acquitted.

P: But if you believed she was guilty, why didn’t you hold out and cause a hung jury? How was she acquitted, unless you went along? DS

In the Simpson case, I believe the uneducated racist jury, did their job. I am sure they did not understand DNA evidence at all. After all they reached a decision in only about 4 hours.

Debbie, you are right this was the start of the political process to seek election of a black for president. Also, pay back for Rodney King three (3) years earlier.

Panhandle on June 13, 2014 at 11:20 am

    I based my giving in on the Judge saying to the jury after about 3 hours, that this case had been adjudicated before (I read at least once) and the government did not want to incur more costs. I guess I should have held out, but I considered her comments. Probably a mistake.

    Panhandle on June 16, 2014 at 4:47 pm

“White guilt” as generated by the aftermath of these murders (and the O.J. verdict) was only a part of the process that led to Obama’s twice-over election (there are other reasons which I’ve expounded on in Comments sections of other articles on this site, so I won’t bring them up here), but an important one nonetheless. But I have another perspective to bring up from the time: Not long before the murders, a NYC-based cable access show hosted by a group of Jewish activists had proclaimed race to be the true “third-rail” of American politics, and for all the reasons (and more) that have been brought up here. After O.J. committed the dastardly deed (and got away with it), it has become even more so. In this time, we saw the toxic results in the reaction to the George Zimmerman imbroglio (and the support for “victim” Trayvon Martin), for example, or the agitations that led to the election in NYC of openly Marxist, criminal-coddling, Islamo-terror enabling Mayor Bill de Blasio (and the rise in violent crime there that we are now seeing to levels not seen since another disaster, John V. Lindsay – never mind the uber-high murder rates under David Dinkins).

And Bob Shapiro has gotten rich hawking the do-it-yourself legal document service “LegalZoom” on TV (he was also one of the company’s co-founders). Other than that, though . . .

ConcernedPatriot on June 13, 2014 at 12:23 pm

The last two comments are from complete noodle quacks. Oj and the Obama link. Ha ha ha. People are getting nuttier everyday.

@ J.E.G. That is crazy that people admitted that to you. Their thinking was severely flawed and a disgrace

BigD on June 13, 2014 at 12:40 pm

This was set up for acquittal from the beginning. Gil Garcetti, the District Attorney for the County of Los Angeles had the trial moved from Santa Monica (which had jurisdiction as the crime was committed in Brentwood) to downtown Los Angeles. His reason? Because “an acquittal from an all-white jury wouldn’t be credible.” As if there were no black people living in Santa Monica/Brentwood to participate in the jury pool? Hello???? OJ lived there. And if memory serves me, there was another prosecutor (who had a better track record and was much more competent) who started the case but had health problems or something and was replaced with Clark and Darden.

Janne on June 13, 2014 at 12:42 pm

    That first DA, who came up with a mystery illness and was replaced, hired a jury consultant who advised against putting ANY blacks on the jury. He was fired and the jury was packed with blacks and women. Case closed! They didn’t want a conviction.

    Tommy Thomas on June 13, 2014 at 3:27 pm

I keep seeing these posts by people I presume they are white, saying things like, “oh it was payback” “oh the trial was set up for aquittal” as if some conspiracy was at play.
Even though We Blacks are not a Monolith of thought that is connected to some Big Black Brain that does all the thinking for us, I will iterate again, that once Furman’s racial epithets came out, there could have been a camera on OJ doing the act, and we would have thought it was a set up. I remember that was all that was talked about amongst blacks. Rationale was gone. Done. Blinded, like a woman in love. Can’t think straight. Furman lost the damn case. Period. Furman’s remarks coupled with Los Angeles police dept shady past, conviction wasn’t happening. Blacks were too damn suspicious. Thats the reality of it.
It amazes me, because its been 20yrs, I it still gets people s blood boiling, yet OJ is gone bye bye. Did Blacks give a rats ass, this last go around? NO. Nobody cared about the big dummy.
He was aquitted only because of the perceived racism of the trial i.e Furhmans comments.

BigD on June 13, 2014 at 1:38 pm

    @Big D….I’m trying to understand your mo….to simply blame the acquittal on Fuhman’s racist remark is ridiculous. Jurors are supposed to cut through this bs. This isnt a schoolyard he-said she- said. Disappointed that youre absolving any American , black or white, of their essential responsibility. The whole world knows OJ did it. He told us. In written words and by his actions. Those were the actions of a guilty man. He was begging the world to convict him on that torment ride with his buddy Cowlings. The verdict proved America cant trust black Americans. It proved black racism is more dangerous to America than white racism. It proved, and I hate to say it, the average black American is weak,dumb and not part of what America should be about…justice and truth. A core facet of our nation died with that verdict that day.

    HK on June 13, 2014 at 2:17 pm

      HK says that the OJ case “proved, and I hate to say it, the average black American is weak,dumb and not part of what America should be about…justice and truth.”

      Huh??? So what is your view on the predominantly white jury that let Casey Anthony off? What’s your view on the all-white jury that convicted Michael Morton, an innocent white man, for the murder of his wife for which he served 25 years in prison? Or the all-white jury that convicted innocent college student Timothy Cole of rape, and he died in prison before his acquittal? I could go on with case after case….would you say these white juries weak and dumb and not part of what America should be about…justice and truth???

      As that Jewish carpenter said a couple thousand years ago, let he among you who is without sin cast the first stone…

      Frankie on June 13, 2014 at 4:19 pm

        They were weak, dumb and stupid too.

        HK on June 13, 2014 at 5:05 pm

One note I will make. If OJ was some poor black guy who was not a celebrity, he would have been convicted. Robert Blake was also found not guilty of murdering his wife.

Of course, in California, there was a guy charged with murder in which there was no evidence against him, not even a blood stain in his car or his wife’s car. Nothing. Zilch. They tried him for murder on the basis he was a bad husband and he was found guilty and given the death sentence. Anybody remember this guy’s name?

Jonathan E. Grant on June 13, 2014 at 1:43 pm

Scott Peterson. There was so little actual evidence, very, very little. Much less than in the OJ case or the Robert Blake case.

Jonathan E. Grant on June 13, 2014 at 1:45 pm

What made the OJ case notable was the overwhelming number of black people cheering for him. I will never forget the celebrations I saw on television of all of the black law students at American University, Washington College of Law, celebrating OJ’s acquittal. Would they have celebrated if a white man had killed two black people? I doubt it.

I am suspicious of any black lawyer or law student who celebrated a murderer going free.

Jonathan E. Grant on June 13, 2014 at 2:14 pm

And let’s not forget Ms. Resnick and Ms. Barbieri in this circus, also.

Rg on June 13, 2014 at 2:27 pm

I was at a Starbucks near Beverly Hills in the late 1990’s. I saw a complete stranger ask another complete stranger for an autograph. The guy later acted as if he had an album signed by all four Beatles, holding it up for all to see. It was Fay Resnick. The whole scene made me cringe.

#1 Vato on June 13, 2014 at 3:15 pm

@ HK, I’m not absolving any American for their responsibility, but to hammer a point, that once racism or bigotry is introduced within any core issue regarding blacks, all rationale and sensibility is lost. Its lost.
I.E. Donald Sterling-( I know its not tantamount to murder) but when the tapes first came out, Blacks seen RED. Now as time passes, logic sets in, oh we start to fear the precedent it sets. Blacks come out defending him, but first, people wanted his head on a stake.
That’s my only point, Blacks were convinced that it was a setup, all behind Furham’s bs. I’m sharing what was discussed ad nauseum in the hoods. I’m not defending it, just discussing reality. Hence, the cheering. No one actually gave a sht about O.J, but perception was racist white cop set him up. White vs Black. Sht was crazy from what I remember, just crazy.

BigD on June 13, 2014 at 4:52 pm

yes, I understand… however, with furhman as with sterling, you had knee jerk reaction, then time to consider. the oj trial offered enough time for “logic to set in “, but it never did. By the way, oj was being cheered during the white bronco ride, which was well before furhman’s remarks. also, whether its dumb blacks, or dumb whites, dumb is dumb. essentially, I see your point.

HK on June 13, 2014 at 5:16 pm

On the gloves, if I remember correctly, he also stopped taking his arthritis medicine before trying them on. That would have swelled his knuckles up somewhat, and made fitting those gloves incredibly hard.

    That’s so ridiculous, why even bring it up? Everyone knows that dried, stiff gloves are going to be hard to put on, plus, as Debbie pointed out, he was wearing rubber gloves, thus making the task of feigning great difficulty while trying them on even easier.

Mark Furhman was right to take the 5th Amendment. He was later charged with perjury and lost his pension for not mentioning that he used the N word years earlier. When Fuhrman became a detective, he put his career at risk and got a wrongly imprisoned black man released. Some racist.

My father and I were watching a pretrial hearing where Vannater was testifying. His body language made it obvious to us that he was lying. We believed at that time and continued to believe that OJ murdered both of them but we were also convinced that Vannater was lying.

OJ got away with murder. I blame the judge and the prosecution team. And the jury. But I don’t blame the defense team – they we’re doing what they were paid to do.

Exposed the evil depths of black racism fueled by their envy. Not just back of the bus racism, but celebrating the freeing of a brutal murderer who nearly decapitated the mother of his children. This is a deeper type of racism brought out by an inferiority complex coupled with envy.

“…but celebrating the freeing of a brutal murderer who nearly decapitated the mother of his children.”

Exactly. And you see guilty, white apologists condoning this type of behavior.

DS_ROCKS! on June 14, 2014 at 4:38 pm

cjk is a fool.

On another note whats up with this Democrat Ellen Birnbaum and her bigoted remarks. Has this gotten any press. I just discovered this news. Hmm a Democrat being racists, hmm

BigD on June 14, 2014 at 4:50 pm

    Truth hurts to the heart for a real racist like you big-dope. LOL!

    cjk on June 15, 2014 at 12:21 am

Big D
I am curious, did you ever study men like George Washington Carver and Elijah McCoy who were inventors in the Black Community. Elijah McCoy died with 50 patents to his name. My point to you is to get off the RACISM thing and all of this other nonsense.
How about giving the Honorable Jonathan E. Grant some patent business and have your name go down in history positively.

The Confederacy on June 14, 2014 at 5:16 pm

@ Confederacy, the answer to your question is yes.
My question to you, is, What racism thing. This isn’t my blog. Have you read the above comments in regards to this article.
You have me confused with confusion, I discuss the matters at hand. Gave my viewpoint, impartially.
The reason I asked about this Democrat senator or whatever she is, is that Repubs always get hit with that label (racist) and here we have a prominent Democrats talking about her behind, with no coverage. I find it interesting.

BigD on June 14, 2014 at 6:20 pm

    From the racist above: ‘This isn’t my blog. Have you read the above comments in regards to this article.’
    My question to you: Did you see the reaction of a racist people to a racist jury letting a vicious murderer walk free?
    Far worse than your back of the bus racism, but you won’t face it because it violates your religion of PCism. People like you are evil because you deny the truth and blame others, disgusting.

    cjk on June 15, 2014 at 12:32 pm

    BigD, I notice that you ignored my short refututation of your claim about blacks now agreeing that OJ did it. You used that to defend your claim that “Once Mark Fuhrman’s racist rhetoric came out, Blacks became blinded with innocence.” Evidently, decades later, after the Fuhrman business, not that much has changed based on this indicator.

    However, even if blacks had “returned” to a sane state this wouldn’t explain why one bit of (apparent) racism should trigger mass psychosis. I suggest that this could happen because blacks, as a group, had been developing a psychological basis for this outbreak for decades.

    Now, you don’t much like to engage regulars here very seriously, but I’m wondering if you have any comments to my points.

    skzion on June 15, 2014 at 3:54 pm

      Notice that BigD is nowhere to be seen. He doesn’t seem to want to answer my questions.

      skzion on June 15, 2014 at 10:00 pm

@ Skzion, Ease up Pilgrim, I’ve only now seen your comment under J.E.G’s.

Yes I seen some poll they put up on t.v I don’t buy that poll. I can tell you, being black and have discussed this some in the past, ( this isn’t a topic that is just harped on, I’d say in the B-community) Blacks admit he did it, or was there. People still struggle with how he killed two people simultaneously, but they admit it.
As far as “Developing a physiological basis for years”
You’re right, its called Latasha Harlins, Rodney King, and all the other racially charged incidents in Los Angeles that happened by Los Angeles police. I can’t recall are of their wickedness, but its a lot. I just mentioned two poplular ones.
Do I condone this, am I making excuses, no, just agreeing that that this psychosis has been developing for years, so when Furman injected his b.s, it set the tone.
Keep B.U.A.N out of your mouth if you are just going to disparage it, like a dolt.

BigD on June 16, 2014 at 4:17 pm

In Fact Skzion, I’m going to go downstairs and talk to the Black Security guard at the bank next door, who always talks sht about whitey and how bigoted he thinks you all are, I’m going to ask if he thinks O.J did it. (he’s older to i’d say in his 50s) let see.

BigD on June 16, 2014 at 4:24 pm

    BigD, I’m sure that asking one fellow easily surpasses the methodology of the survey we have both heard about. Lol. I’m interested in seeing a better refutation of that survey.

    But then I made a later point that you handled in a startling manner:

    “As far as ‘Developing a physiological [Sic: PSYCHOLOGICAL, it’s an important distinction.] basis for years’ You’re right, its called Latasha Harlins, Rodney King, and all the other racially charged incidents in Los Angeles that happened by Los Angeles police. I can’t recall are of their wickedness, but its a lot. I just mentioned two poplular ones.”

    Oh, you’re really going to trot out Rodney King, whose own actions were manifestly illegal, and whose associated riot occurred because the court system couldn’t be railroaded into a criminal conviction for the cops involved? Eventually, a bogus “civil rights” lawsuit only managed a 50% conviction rate (two cops). And THAT lawsuit was as political and rigged as things get. Note that King did the same kind of crap later on as well. I have no idea about the chick, but your own response regarding King so undermines your credibility that my investigation of her would be pointless.

    In fact, black lawlessness had “blossomed” only after the Civil Rights movement had implemented special rights for blacks, including quotas.

    The black behavior regarding R. King is of a similar kind as for OJ. In both cases, a built up black (nigga) racism is given the green light. But hey, I thought you opposed niggas? You see, BigD, that’s why I think you’re a big fraud.

    skzion on June 16, 2014 at 8:48 pm

@skzion: You forgot Travon, the innocent 12 year old who was hunted down by a white hispanic.
Also think just how big-dope thinks about blacks; they are so stupid, childish, and just so morally bankrupt as to close their eyes and put their fingers in their ears over a single investigator of the case using a word regardless of how derogatory??????
I would be ashamed of any behavior to allow a murderer to walk. Is that what he really thinks about blacks? If so then he has just confirmed the thoughts of the most racist people among us.

cjk on June 16, 2014 at 10:43 pm

    cjk, I was responding to BigD’s examples. However, your reference to Martin–whom BigD supported–shows that despite his pose IN GENERAL, he seems always to defend niggas. That’s why I mock his for his group BUAN (Blacks United Against Niggas).

    skzion on June 17, 2014 at 1:16 am

@Skizion- I take you to be a much smarter guy than taking some garbage poll cnn or fox puts up. Just as I expected the old black security guard believes O.J did it. So yes when I can go out and ask an older black male who is suspicious of white people and validate my argument that Blacks now admit that O.J did it, instead of quoting some lame poll as you did, I know I’ve won the argument.

I give you too much credit though, you are quite inept in comprehension. You bring up some argument about Black Psychosis has been in play for years, and I brought up events that happened in Los Angeles that help build that psychosis. You are a blind bigot if you think he should have gotten beaten like that. GTFOofhere. At any rate, my point went right over your head. You focus on irrelevant b.s. Which is apparent by you even quoting somee cnn/fox poll.
You are unable to follow points and then throw accusations and now you have some white bigot puppet following your every word in cjk, who I’m not even going to address.
Trying to have a logical sensible discussion with you is futile and pointless. Don’t address me, if you are just going to ramble of nonsense!

BigD on June 17, 2014 at 1:43 pm

    BigD, your opinion about my intelligence has the same importance for me as it does for other regulars here: zero.

    Your response to the first point regarding the poll in question is laughable–and your alternative “methodology” is hilarious. Why should polling organizations (including serious academic ones) bother with all that money for research when they could go out, find one guy in person, and ask him a question? This proves that you are a willful ignoramus.

    Your response to my second point is almost as ludicrous (nothing could be as ludicrous). Unlike you, I write grammatically. You simply REFUSE to comprehend my point. I said, “In fact, black lawlessness had “blossomed” only after the Civil Rights movement had implemented special rights for blacks, including quotas.” In other words, how the R. King case was handled by the po-lice could not explain typically racist and riotous black behavior because this behavior began to occur well before the R. King case.

    Blacks have increasingly resented whitey openly and more violently as the law has increasingly pampered them. The police in LA, who are largely untrustworthy themselves, responded, finally, with beatings of the kind that happened to King. I am fully willing to mistrust the police. But the police are not the ones who are creating criminal habitats in formerly safe neighborhoods.

    I will keep this link so that the next time you blather here I can direct participants to it. I will let them decide which of us is capable of following and responding to an argument.

    Finally, your responses remind me of those who are against government spending but like all their special government-provided treats. You claim to oppose the niggas, but in every particular you support them. Willfully. Then you blather as if I were the one would could not understand the outpouring of your great intellect.

    skzion on June 17, 2014 at 3:12 pm

      There is no need to save the the link. bigotD will repeat himself like he always does. What were the lyrics to that song, bigot?

      nadie on June 17, 2014 at 9:35 pm

Don’t talk to me!

BigD on June 17, 2014 at 5:47 pm

Notice how big dope can’t answer or even respond to my accusations?????
Come on big dope, I kick your azz every time with the plain clear TRUTH!

cjk on June 18, 2014 at 1:10 am

LOSER, RACIST that you really are, I mean you reallly are you FU#KI!

cjk on June 18, 2014 at 1:12 am

Sorry I mean evil. Godless FU#K

cjk on June 18, 2014 at 1:13 am

I am really so sick and tired of these true racists like big dope and those who give him a pass!! I swear, I swear that I would say it to his face even if it meant a beat down because this cowardliness is destroying my country and my culture which so happens to be the apex of human advancement to date. I love truth and they hate it and deny it because it just doesn’t fit what they want, well FU%K them and everyone who enables them.
God is alive and God loves truth and I would rather die than accede to their lies. So call me a racist, you racists because God knows I ain’t one, my accusers are the real racists.
Long live the truth and God will eventually judge all these hypocrites.!!@
Now do you want to know how I really feel? LOL!

cjk on June 18, 2014 at 1:24 am

Please drop the anti-conservative digs and just talk about the case already.
You have good information, but demonize half the population, and you cut your # of viewers in half.alf. You have something to say, but your manner here against me does you more ill than it does me.
