To those perhaps 25 and older, where were you when the OJ Simpson verdict was read on TV?



I was in the 6th grade and we all gathered around my PE teachers car to listen to the verdict. reaction was mixed. Where were you?

And if you weren't born yet or were too young to remember, how do you feel about the OJ trial?

  • I can't remember where I was exactly but I remember living during that time right in the heart of it and just becoming an adult.

    Just a few years before OJ, I watched LA Riot over the Rodney King verdict. I watched a media try to explain away a white man being pulled from his truck and almost being beaten to death because he happened to be on the wrong street at the wrong time. I watched society become a mob and what that means and how people tried to justify it... like there is justification for losing your mind and joining a mob. lol!

    A few years later with OJ, I watched the power of suggesting a mob and what it does to reason. It may even influence a jury... or so history may prove...

  • I remember actually. I was a little kid about 8-9-10 can't remember exactly and I was with my family and we were overseas.

    I was in some kind of sugar high or something and I was just cracking up at the seriousness of the broadcast and my dad was telling me to shut up

  • I was 10 years old and can't remember that much. Our teacher asked us to vote on whether he was innocent or guilty and I voted guilty cause my parents said he was guilty and a black girl accused me of being racist cause I voted him guilty.

  • I don't remember where I was. At the time I thought the hoopla around the case was bizarre and I didn't pay much attention to it. I have a better understanding of the racial narratives and why it was important case to some now. I still think it's kinda weird that people where so invested in the case and unfortunate that social issues put pressures on the case in general.
