"Those who feel that his acquittal was unjust, or that the members on the jury were racially motivated should realize that if true, it would not be the first time. There have been hundreds perhaps thousands of trials where the accused walked free because of their race. Of course all of those with the exception of OJ were White men.
The examples of this are legion. For instance four years prior, the officers that were video taped beating Rodney King were all acquitted of any wrong doing. All were White as were all the jurors on their case. Even with video evidence of the beating all four officers were acquitted. I don’t think I have to example any more because we all know that White men being acquitted of crimes, especially those committed against Blacks, by all White juries, is a fairly common occurrence. Well since 1865 or so, prior to that Blacks in America had no rights regarding life, liberty or the pursuit of happiness, no rights at all.
Its very telling that in 25 years this case is still fretted over. Those still bothered by OJ’s acquittal must look at the race component because that’s the only unique thing about this case. Robert Blake, a White celebrity acquitted of killing his wife ten years after the OJ trail never gets mentioned. No one seems the least bit concerned or surprised by his acquittal. The only difference is that he was White."
