Today Andrew gives Gus G a refresher on the O.J. Simpson trial and they both discuss how certain people love to always bring it up. Be sure to keep leaving us messages at (323) 389-RACE.

black kids beat me up for saying OJ was guilty in 6th grade and wrote BLOOD across the piece of tape that had my name on it to mark my classroom cubbyhole, for no reason at all, there's a reason white people remember the event/that trial

When my white friend's dad said OJ was guilty a mob of black people hanged him in the town square while the all-black police force watched and distributed free drinks. The same thing happened to his grandfather when he said OJ was guilty 15 years earlier, and his great-grandfather before that. It wasn't really that long ago that white people who thought OJ was guilty weren't even considered real people and lower than even animals.

It's amazing, in this day and age, to think that as recently as 1973, white people who thought OJ was guilty weren't even allowed to vote.
