Dr Boyce Watkins: What the OJ Trial taught me about white people, black people and America

Post By RelatedRelated Post

by Dr. Boyce Watkins

I remember 20 years ago, waking up from taking a nap.  I was dating a really horrible woman at the time who shall remain nameless.  But then again, I probably think she’s horrible because she dumped me for a better-looking man, so just chalk it up to my being a hater.  But anyway, the woman in the previous sentence said “Hey Coco (that was my nickname when I was young), look at this.”

I woke up and looked at the television to see this really slow, awkward police chase, where a white Bronco was driving down the freeway with about 20 police cars right behind it.  I then saw that one of the occupants of that vehicle happened to be the “great” OJ Simpson.  I’d thought about Simpson only two days earlier when I was checking out of a hotel and happened to see a news segment announcing that his wife and her friend had been found murdered.

The television headline I saw in the hotel that day was one of those things that you expect to ignore, since dead people are in the news all the time.  But I remember doing a double take on that one, thinking, “Wait.  That could be a bigger story than most.”  Little did I know that it was going to lead to what some considered to be the most closely-watched trial of the 20th century.

  1. What did you say – OJ learned that you can never be a white man, no matter how hard you try? I agree with you and that should be a lesson to the following: Allen West, Herman Cain, Michael Steele; Deneen Borelli. You remember when Allen West was TP rep said Blacks, not him, belonged to the plantations; Cain called us brain-washed and Koch Brothers are his brothers from another mother; Michael Steele campaigned against Obama in 2008. Steele was booted out when Obama won. Deneen Borelli thinks her position at FoxNews is her education not that FoxNews hired her as show! I know we Blacks and Whites should aspire to live as one Nation. But we should not forget there elements in both that hate the other for no reason than difference in color.

  2. Overall, the whole event was used as a massive distraction.
    Black’s overall should have been spending all their time and that energy organizing and really dealing with this new world order genocide, population control agenda being used against the poor black people in this place now.
    That is one lesson that not to many black people seem to understand as we look back in history.

  3. Do you know FoxNews came to life when it glued to air OJ case? That is when we heard about Bill O, Greta and many others at FoxNews. One Black prosecutor, I cannot remember his name, got a professor job at one conservative university – just because he was Black prosecuting OJ. It was a sad but interesting case.

    • Christopher Allen Darden was his name. I was so disgusted with his bent over crying performance because OJ was acquitted. Not only was I angry I was embarrassed and so should every black (women) person should have been that this man was crying over the white woman. I believed and Johnny Cochran and his team proved that OJ was innocent.

    • Christopher “Dum Dum” Darden. Bill O was well known when he was a reporter for KMGH news in Denver.

      Dum Dum is not a very good attorney. I think he was passed though law school like a problem child the school wanted to get rid of.

      He fathers a baby out of wedlock, marry someone else and then refuses to pay child support.

  4. Brother OJ should have dissapeared and not let anyone ever see the dust he left.

    • I with you Haile agree 1000%. He should have made a brief appearance at the Million Man March and publicly that Minister Farrakhan. Why? Many people do not know that during the trail the Browns and Goldman’s were allowed to park their vehicles at the court house parking lot for free and were escorted in by the sheriff department. OJ’s mother in a wheelchair pushed in by his sister had to park across the street. Pay. Walk in alone unescorted. Minister Farrakhan got wind of this and sent brothers from the Nation of Islam to escort OJ’s family in. This would have been a very powerful moment at the Million Man March. Then disappeared again: Trust me he would have been in a better position today.

  6. If there is ONE case that demonstrated the absolute stupidity of white people going down the road of forced integration with the black race (a race that built no industries, no tax bases, no political systems, no urban housing, and did not EMPLOY one white person between 1900 & 1964)…it BE the OJ case.

    -17-year-old w/f was RAPED on her first date with OJ
    –Oj beat her often and savagely
    -can take a black man out of ghetto but not the ghetto out of a black man
    — Ron Goldman’s blood was found INSIDE OJ’s Bronco
    –And just who other than OJ could hv been behind his guest houses around the murder time/
    –trail of blood led up Oj’s home stairs and into his bathroom

    –OJ had cuts all over his “knife” hand

    Simpson was guilty has H*LL

    OJ be Black man trying to live in a white community with a white female. Where did ALL his $$ come from? White people. Black man is the white man’s MENACE. ALWAYS HAS BEEN. Blacks need a homeland in America…so white people can get him off the white man’s nipple.
    -

    • If OJ was guilty: How did he get off?

    • Nicole Brown was pimped out by her parents. Nicole was a adulterous w-h-o-e and so is her drugged out sister Denise. It is Nicole’s fault that she is dead not O.J.

      Participating in the drug community and performing o-r-a-l s-e-x out in the open where her children could catch her is not the standard for a mother who is supposed to have some morals.

      BTW, the man whose lollipop she was sucking on was a white man.

  7. OJ “got off” because the black jury “nullified” all the evidence against him (there was one tag-along white female on the jury). It was a despicably racist thing to do (oh, and remember, this case was 3 years after the black racist riot in LA in ’91) It also showed the whole world just how stupid it is to create a multi-racial political/judicial/economic system. A white jury in Santa Monica did the right thing and found dopey Simpson guilt in a civil case.

    Blacks need a homeland in America. White people MUST get out of this forced integration system

    • Stop following us A-hole.

  8. There are some people you just can't help. They are so into their Stockholm Syndrone they can never come out of it. OJ is one of those people. After meeting him personally, I didn't like him so I was waiting for them to do to him what they had always done to Black males in this situation. I was Mr. Cochran who impressed me. His excellence in his field was awesome. He made them do what they are supposed to do "prove their case beyond a shadow of a doubt". No.1, OJ wasn't smart enough to engage him in the beginning. It wasn't until Cochran was interviewed by a TV show that he became involved in the case. Through that entire trial, OJ sat there and never learned one thing about this system. He left that courtroom as dumb as when he entered. Being stuck on stupid, he never even thought that they were just waiting for him to make one false move and they would get him for the crime they could never prove. And there we have it. You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink. I am still in awe about the defense Mr. Cochran put up to save a fool. May he rest in peach.

  9. Now I believe OJ is a POS…but it has come out that someone else admitted to this crime….some redneck, who didn't even know who OJ was at the time….he would just call and write home that he was doing a lot of work for this woman Nicole Simpson who used to be married to some Black guy who used to play football….And in a conversation with his sister he told her that Nicole was rich and he was work her for every dime he could. By the time the murders took place he left the area and continued on his country wide crime spree…he said in an open letter to a journalist that he eventually met OJ and he paid him to kill Nicole but that boy showed up so he had to kill him too…..dude is still on death row for all the other murders he committed…but no one believes him…he even had his mother wear a piece ok Nicole's jewelry during his trial and people confirmed it belonged to Nicole…..SMH

  10. OJ did NOT kill those people. Anybody who actually WATCHED the trial each and every day like I did, knows that.

  11. Overall,back then and like now. Glad I never saw the chase and never watched that twisted trial and then that big verdict.
    It was just another media distraction designed to sell white owned newspapers and get many to tune into this crap.
    Back then black’s were all united in being for this guy and what happen to the unity after the verdict.
    Things went right back to the usual divide and conquer twisted behavior.
    Even after all these years there are many people holding these deep seated feelings and hate for this guy,the verdict and other black people.
    What they refuse to see or maybe admit. The media is owned and controlled by white people period.

  12. Its not thousands but hundreds of thousands think about it there r over 2 miion black men alone not counting women and children.

  13. We black western new yorkers [buffalo bills running back OJ Simpson i.e.] remember the 'Juice' well, he didn't give a rats arzz about us !!! But that being said I don't think he morphed into OJ 'Juice' Ninja with skills to dispatch his wife Nicole [she's from the Buffalo area] and her male companion Mr. Ron Goldman [he himself is a alleged black belt martial artist whatever that means] with a 'butcher' (or was it a hunting) knife!!! Since it was one of him against two of them !!! Damn !!! I don't mean to make light of the death of two persons, but isn't that somewhat incredulous !!! I think in his last days with the SF 49er's he suffered a career ending hip injury didn't he ??? Yet he was able to 'jump' around and with the skill of a knife ninja kill these two poor souls all by himself. Black folks can do all things but succeed in America, Bull………

  14. I remember walking into the house and seeing my ex husband sitting glued in front of the tube Little did he know I was hipped to his secret affair with a white woman I remember just walking pass him looking at the dumb *ucker!
