They were both acquitted! And both of their public images suffered! What are you talking about?!?! Public opinion is one thing. But we are discussing what happens in the trial, what influences verdicts. "Not that guilt-by-accusation schit that american society postures itself to embrace whenever a rich black has a trial." That is where I mentioned that race has nothing to do with these verdicts when there is someone rich.

Brotha, are you even reading my posts?? I'm the one who said money was the central issue.

Race is certainly significant, but being rich will 9 times out of 10 trump everything else. How many times have you heard the phrase "Oh he's not reallyBlack, he's just Will Smith/Michael Jordan/whoever?" You cannot possibly think people immediately think Black man when they think Michael Jackson. He is right in the aforementioned category, even before his face matched that thinking.

That is the flip side of exactly what I said previously. If the rich get off, the poor obviously go down in flames.
