What i'm saying is that everybody is making a HUGE deal out of something that isnt important compared to the rest of the world. Great, one guy gets off for muder, and since its televised for 9 years, everybody cries about it. What about the other murderers who are let off as innocent, nobody cries about them. What about the people who were proved innocent AFTER they served their death penalty, nobody even knows they exist, and some even claim stuff like that has never happened. I'm just saying our attention is focused in the wrong place, lets pay attention to something that really matters.
Yes, there are many more horrible instances of death occuring around the world today. O.J. does not represent genocide, he does not represent a chlorea outbreak, he does not represent famine, but what he does represent is someone who still murdered two people, with a mountain of evidence against him, yet still managed to get off free thanks to his fame, money, and (ironically in this case) race. The jury was completely black, and I am not sure how something like that could have happened in the post-segragation 90s.

It is not just completely about him, but what he is a symbol of. He is a symbol of what Americans hate, someone who manages to literaly get away with murder because of how much money he has. He is an uncomfortable reminder that everyone really is not equal, that money and power really can free you from things, and that race still is a factor in how you are perceived by others, even though we are taught evry day that because this is America, we are all somehow equal, which we are not.

It's the same thing with any major public figure. Even though I am sure that no one really likes President Bush as a person, or a leader (myself included), he still needs to be protected from assassination, because of what he represents. I'm sure you would not feel sorry for him if he was shot in the head, since he is white and powerful and lives comfortably, but because of the position that he holds, and what he represents, he needs to be protected..... but after january 2009, that doesn't really matter anymore.

I was very bemused as a youngster watching the Golden Girls when Blanche said she was going to "spank her fanny" I had visions of a geriatric vertical bacon sandwich red and bruised from being disciplined!!!
