OJ Arrested!: Damn DAMN DAYUM!

OJ Simpson was arrested today in connection with a hotel room robbery in Las Vegas. He apparently is denying the alegations, saying he went to the room to retrieve some things that belonged to him. It is still unclear what he as been charged with, but according to the New York Times, “another person connected to Simpson was accused of storming the room at the Palace Station Hotel-Casino was charged with two counts of robbery with a deadly weapon, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery and burglary with a deadly weapon, Lt. Clint Nichols said.”

Really OJ? I hope he’s not guilty of this. Either way, I wish he would just stay out of the press. It has been 15 years of OJ embarrassment for Black people, and we really just don’t need anymore! We already have hip-hop, Ward Connerly and BET to contend with. Can we catch a break?

All Black people know what I am talking about. Not only with OJ, but anytime you watch the news and hear about a crime committed by somebody Black. We tend to have the following collective response:

  1. There are white folks who’ve been going without sleep for the past 15 years waiting for this moment. Regardless of the outcome, they’ve now got another 15 years of material to chew over.

  2. Kenyon, I hate you! LOL. I was going to blog about the same thing. But this posting is better than anything I could have ever thought of. Keep it coming.

  4. OJ is an embarrassment to all of us; not just black people.

    I am white and if there ever was a total breakdown of our judicial system it was with OJ.
    I am not a racist and believe in a justice system fair to all – unfortunately, today I don’t think that is what we have. If you have money, there are a different set of justice systems in play.

    Seems that laws enacted today by our elected officials are written by lawyers who then argue the “merits” of the particular law, enriching themselves in the process.

    No, it’s not fair and I for one am fed up with it.
