Get and read this book. It has more than enough of the mountains of evidence that O.J. murdered Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman and got away with it because the jury was 75% black.

Christopher Darden is an extremely competent lawyer who has been turned off by the legal system that failed to convict O.J. He mostly blames Johnnie Cochran for inventing and promoting the double murderer as the victim of a racist culture that got O.J. off and Darden blames the overwhelmingly black jury with eight black women, one black man, two white women and one Hispanic male for the acquittal.

Those are correct conclusions. Darden however  missed completely the blame of District Attorney Gil Garcetti who decided to put Marcia Clark in front of the jury. Marcia Clark who failed to placate the jury so they could exercise their reason instead of their emotions.

Marcia Clark is almost impossible to like. She’s extremely competent. She did the standard things a great prosecutor would do but IMO not only was Marcia Clark not liked by the jury she seems hard to like for most people. That isn’t her fault. Nature installs attributes in people and nature wasn’t kind to Marcia.  

Books lack sight, sound, touch and smell. That’s part of the problem with “In OCntempt”. The voice of the reader is what the reader hears in their own mind as they read a book so they cannot hear how harsh is Marcia Clark’s voice. Readers cannot see or hear Marcia in action. The O.J. jury saw, heard and was turned off. Why?

What turns off people? Many things but there are also attributes which people in general like such as a soothing voice. The total of the attributes of a person make up their public persona, their public personality.

When movies became able to add sound, some actors had to quit because their voices were not good enough to carry off the image in the movie. Sound is important. It conveys and embroiders the images reported to the brain by the sight. Marcia had an OK appearance but nature gave her a rather strong but not appealing voice. Coupled with the incongruity of a female whose characteristics are usually soft and soothing compared to her commanding presence she was off-putting to the jury.

The invisible and important dynamic underlying the prosecution was a Jewish woman prosecuting a black man. Females are not usually in positions of power over men. Both men and women use stereotypes but Marcia Clark was in strong opposition to the stereotype of men in command, women serving man. Yes, it’s wrong. Yes many of us have advanced far beyond the ideas of the renaissance and accept the idea of strong, dominant women but it runs counter to a sort of inbred expectation that orders are given by and prosecutions are made by men.
In addition to the other problems created by O.J.’s lawyer Johnnie Cochran, the race based defense that the white police were prosecuting another innocent black man and that the black jurors fell for the argument, Marcia Clark and the prosecution were victims of the anti-semetic dynamic of a Jewish prosecutor.

Take a poll in the black community. There is attitudinal anti-Semitism. Approximately 12 percent of Americans hold deeply entrenched anti-Semitic views, according to Anti-Defamation League polling, which uses an 11-question index to measure anti-Semitic opinions. Respondents are asked if they agree with such statements as Jews have too much power in America, Jews are more loyal to Israel than to the United States, and Jews have a lot of irritating faults. (Some critics have noted that some of these statements, such as one about Jews sticking together more than other Americans, also could be answered in the affirmative by respondents who admire Jewish cohesiveness and success rather than harbor genuine anti-Jewish attitudes.)

The proportion of Americans who hold these viewpoints has held relatively study in recent years, at 12 to 14 percent. In 1964, by contrast, roughly 30 percent of Americans held such views.
Among those with anti-Semitic attitudes today, African-Americans and Latinos have disproportionately high numbers – above 30 percent. Foxman attributes the persistence of anti-Semitism among African-Americans to denial of the problem and a dearth of black leaders speaking out against anti-Semitism.

“Anti-Semitism has had a long history among African Americans. In the 1920s, for instance, the “buy-black” campaign of the black-nationalist leader Marcus Garvey was explicitly targeted against Jews, and Garvey later spoke admiringly of Adolf Hitler.

“In February 1948 the black writer James Baldwin acknowledged how widespread anti-Semitism was in his community, writing: “Georgia has the Negro and Harlem has the Jew.” Baldwin later succumbed to such views himself when he wrote that while Christians made up America’s true power structure, the Jew “is doing their dirty work.” He went on to denigrate Jewish financial support of civil rights organizations as mere “conscience money.”

“Malcolm X, too, was a vociferous anti-Semite both publicly and privately. According to author Murray Friedman, when Malcolm met with representatives of the Ku Klux Klan to solicit their support for his project of black separatism, he “assured them” that “it was Jews who were behind the integration movement.”

A notorious anti-Semite Nation of Islam spokesman Khalid Abdul Muhammad came to speak at York College, a branch of the City University of New York in the impoverished neighborhood of South Jamaica, Queens with a student body that is more than 60 percent Black. The date was November 7, 1995, the college’s annual Black Solidarity Day, and the school-under pressure from the CUNY administration to bar Muhammad from campus-had denied a student group’s request to bring the NOI speaker to York, citing incomplete information about the event and lack of time to make proper security arrangements. That morning, York’s administration stationed about 120 New York City police and CUNY officers at the school’s three gates. Dressed in riot gear, they were instructed to keep out everyone except faculty and students.

Referring to the assassination of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin three days earlier, Nation of Islam spokesman Khalid Abdul Muhammad said to the crowd of 200 to 300 students, “I cannot be sad when my enemy is struck down.”
Touching on the trial of O.J. Simpson for the murder of his ex-wife, Muhammad said, “I want to tell the Black woman, ‘Stop running around with a blonde wig on your head.’ If you believe that blondes have more fun, ask Nicole Brown Simpson.”

Al Sharpton is another prominent African American whose anti-Semitism has frequently been on public display. In 1991, for instance, after anti-Semitic riots in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights section had erupted in response to a Hasidic Jew’s accidental vehicular homicide of a black child, Sharpton organized angry demonstrations and challenged local Jews –– whom he derisively called “diamond merchants” –– to “pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house” to settle the score. Stirred in part by such rhetoric, hundreds of Crown Heights blacks continued rioting for three days and nights, killing an innocent rabbinical student named Yankel Rosenbaum in the process.

Four years later, Sharpton led an ugly boycott against Freddy’s Fashion Mart, a Jewish-owned clothing store in Harlem, New York. The street leader of the boycott, Morris Powell, was the head of Sharpton’s “Buy Black” Committee. He and his fellow protesters repeatedly referred to the Jewish proprietors of Freddy’s as “the greedy Jew bastards [who are] killing our [black] people.”

Anti-Semitism helped O.J. beat a double murder rap where mountains of evidence proved he did it.
