No,society has not”moved beyond all that”.Lots of these old angers just fester and marinate until the appropriate time when they explode with vehemence.
Here is the irony of the whole OJ phenomenon-many blacks,especially black women,were angered by his obvious attraction to white blonde females.He was seen as a joke in many quarters of the black community.Yet when he got into trouble he had no problem playing the race card!
Personally,I felt little emotion at the acquital.Reason-I was just not too sympathetic toward the whole Brown-Simpson crowd who seemed like a bunch of drug taking,hedonistic selfish boors.Not that I believe that justifies murder but violating basic moral principles can often lead people to do things once considered outside the bounds of civilized behavior.

Me either. I was surprised but that’s about it.

“No,society has not”moved beyond all that”.Lots of these old angers just fester and marinate until the appropriate time when they explode with vehemence.”

Seems extremely one-sided. Besides, what “old angers” does anyone under the age of 60 really have? A few white guys got away with murder 50 years ago? When can we expect these “old angers” to subside? Ever?

I’m sorry but that’s just a lame excuse for acting in a hateful manner.
