What can one say?

If you're over a certain age...he was the greatest guy in the world in the Seventies and Eighties. Good looking football star turned movie and TV actor.

Then all non Black Americans became convinced that he was a murderer.

Then gradually and quietly Black America came to accept that too. Fame followed by infame.

The original trial (still an embarrassment to the California justice system)made great "reality TV".

A nostalgic look back...

It didn’t fit, they did acquit.

I still remember when SNL wouldn't stop making sketches about OJ and they were terrible. If it wasn't OJ, it was sketches about the Monica/Lewinsky scandal, which were also terrible.

The "real killer" was probably one of those MAGA guys...who beat up on Jussie Smollett...who doubtless belong to the same "small foreign faction" who killed Jon Benet Ramsey, and who also stole the 2020 election from Trump.

A lot of people considered his acquittal revenge for the Rodney King fiasco a few years earlier. His passing has been quite bittersweet here in Buffalo as most people here believe he was guilty but still fondly remember his time with the Bills and how good of an ambassador he was for the city after he retired :P

Interesting fact: Ron Goldman was a contestant on Studs, hosted by Mark DeCarlo, who was a big winner on Sale of the Century.

I wonder how much of the settlement the Goldmans actually received.

If only Simpson had faced justice in this life. Well, at least his life became sh*t afterwards.

Could't have happened to a nicer guy..

..also; at least OJ can rest easy knowing that his wife and her partner's killer is dead.

The Rodney King and LA riots controversy played a part in influencing the acquitting of OJ. At least, that's what mom believes.
