Do serial killers become more of a threat to society if they are African Americans Is a murder less vicious if it was done by a White person Do you think that Orenthal James Simpson would have been accused of a lesser crime if he was White Todays society is not one that is racially balanced but I feel fairly confident that murder is still murder no matter whom it is performed by I realize that in our nations history certain races were not given equal rights and I dont oppose those who state that society still doesnt balance on a fulcrum of equality Nevertheless I do feel that racism at least from where I stand is less I believe that racism is a pendulum swinging to both opposites before finally settling somewhere in the middle To say that racism didnt play a part in the OJ Simpson trial would be ignorance However I do believe that racism wasnt the primary reason for the hype that surrounded the most controversial trial of the century OJ Simpson was a model not only to the African American race but also to all people involved with the media He broke racial boundaries on and off the football field and established himself as a media icon It was this reason that the media first became introduced to the Simpson trial It wasnt until after a possible suicide note and a four-hour police chase that premiered midway through an NBA playoff game that brought not only media coverage but also the publics attention to the situation It was the intrigue of a public hero that possibly turned vicious killer that grasped audiences attention An athletic superstar who had won the Heisman trophy and then accusedly conspired to kill his wife and her lover brought OJ Simpson to the headlines To assume that the reason for the publicity was due to OJ Simpson being of African American descent
