Now for the people talkin this stuff about how OJ couldn't "lay low". How many times has britney spears been in trouble, this year alone? This could be said about paris, lindsay, or any amount of these hollywood party types. Why can't they learn how to "lay low?" Better yet, you ever notice how when the black celebrity's get in trouble, it always seems to be less forgivable than the white celebrities?

I agree. They all should lay low and act responsibly and not commit crimes. If ANY of them do commit crimes, they should be punished. Unfortunately, all of them including OJ get special treatment because they are celebs.

I have not noticed that is less forgivable for black celebs. Please site example.

As an example, Bill Belechek coach of the NE patriots, was caught violating NFL rules, and cheating. But was he suspended for any games? No...he has to pay an incredibly small fine (250k is dog poop to him), and the team will get a small fine, and penalized a draft pick or 2. Rather light sentence for breaking NFL's own rules don't you think?

There is a HUGE difference between violating NFL rules and committing murder, kidnapping, armed robbery, assault and battery, etc...

Please site which Federal, State, or local law, Mr. Belechek violated.

Now look at micheal vick....Granted, funding a dog fighting ring is messed up..but the man was suspended indefinitely without pay, for violations committed outside the league. Furthermore, vick is looked down apon like some monster..yet Bill Belecheck, a PROVEN CHEATER, is still a hero. You saying that these 2 men aren't receiving different treatment? You seriously expect me to belive that race isn't playing a factor, in how the media is portraying these 2 men?

Are you seriously attempting to equate cheating in the NFL to torturing and murdering animals for sport??
Vick is looked down upon as a monster because he tortured and murdered animals for FUN !!! He is a monster.
Of course they should receive different treatment because one only broke game rules the other violated many federal laws.
Race play absolutely no factor in Vicks treatment and there is absolutely no reason to think otherwise.

Let me say this again, Vick TORTURED and MURDERED animals for fun and profit.
Belecheck cheated as part of a football game.
There is absolutely no comparison to be made here.

Now lets look at OJ carefully since he was acquitted. He for the most part tried to be a quiet guy, and take care of his kids.

OJ does interviews all the time.
He's always out and about in the public eye.
He has gone out of his way to try and sneak out of the Goldman judgement.
He has been arrested for kidnapping, robbery, etc.
He has written a book entitled, "IF I did it". Are you kidding me ?
He filmed a porn movie.

That's quiet huh?

Look, I know there is racism in this country. I don't think any rational person would disagree with that. But ALL ethnic backgrounds have been discriminated against including caucasions. I can site example after example of how I personally (I'm caucasion) have been discriminated against because of the color of my skin.
Spawnn, you are making it sound like white people are trying to keep black people from bettering themselves as a whole and that is simply not the case.

OJ did it !
If OJ were white, you know what I'd say?

One last point.
The aryian nation is a group of ignorant individuals who believe they are superior because of the amount of melanin in their skin. Just so we're clear, they are not superior, they are actually inferior because they have no concept of what makes an intelligent person intelligent. I would be shocked if anyone in this thread actually believe otherwise.

As to why Robert Blake didn't receive the media attention of O.J. Simpson...
Well he was no where near as big a celebrity as O.J.

It would be like comparing a congressmen to a local township administrator. The name recognition is nowhere near the same. I barely remember the whole Baretta thing but I remembered O.J. Simpson was a football hero.

Regarding the parallels between OJ and the Jena 6 and the question as to whether or not they were treated fairly.

We've already discussed OJ but
regarding the Jena 6,
Did they deserve the initial charges of 2nd degree attempted murder? I'm not sure but I do know that 6 people attacked and beat 1 person. That was a very violent CRIME regardless of ethnicity.

I saw signs at a jena 6 protest that read "FREE THE JENA 6" just like at the OJ trial. Free them? Just let them go? Wait a minute... 6 people assaulted and beat one person almost to DEATH and there are individuals out there even suggesting they should be freed?
How is that logical on any planet???
Shouldn't they at least face assault and battery charges???

Shouldn't those protest signs have said things like
"Let the punishment fit the crime"
"send them to prison for assault instead of attempted murder"

I find it interesting that people are claiming the jena 6 were discriminated against upon arrest but the white person that was beaten almost to death wasn't? Wasn't what happened to that 1 person a HATE CRIME?

Some are saying the person who was beaten may have said some racially derogatory comments. Sorry but BOO HOO!! If he did that means he's a racist, ignorant jerk but that doesn't give any one person the right to beat him mercilessly let alone 6 people.
I have been called a lot of really nasty things throughout my life and NOT ONCE did I assault someone over it.

So maybe they were charged with more then they deserved and the charges should be reduced. Maybe OJ was charged with more then he deserved and they should also be reduced. If that is the case, justice should see to it quickly and without bias. But, please keep in mind that these individuals put themselves in that situation. They need to take SOME responsibility for what happened but for the most part, the protests aren't asking for fair treatment but special treatment.

If there's any conspiracy concerning OJ, I think it's more likely that Johnny Cochrane was whacked out with the brain cancer for things he knew regarding the real reason OJ was found innocent.

I think he was found innocent on purpose and I think it had something to do with the PTB wanting to spark yet more racial division and hatred.

That wouldn't surprise me a bit, and I think that the whole Jena 6 thing is much along the same lines. Seems to me that the races are getting way too friendly for the divide and conquer crowd’s liking.
