The Context of White Supremacy hosts the second study session on Jeffrey Toobin’s The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson. This 1996 New York Times bestseller enjoyed two different waves of success. It was critically acclaimed during the initial mid-90’s publication, and it found re-newed success following the wildly successful 2016 FX miniseries – which is based on Toobin’s work. Toobin enjoyed three glorious decades of journalism, spawned from his coverage of the Simpson trial. He wrote beloved books on the Supreme Court and authored a scathing indictment of President Donald J. Trump. Things were triumphant until the year of the rona. While participating in a live Zoom conference with prominent White journalists, Toobin exposed his penis and began masturbating. He was initially suspended by the New Yorker. After a weeks of investigation, Toobin was fired. We’ll keep this in mind while reading Toobin’s account of the most well documented, most watched court trial of all time. During last week’s session we learned how the police discovered the bodies of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman in June of 1994. They leave the murder scene to notify O.J. that his ex-wife has been murdered. When police reach the Juice’s residence, Mark Fuhrman finds specs of blood on a vehicle and decides O.J. may be injured or worse. Fuhrman scales the gate, allows access to the other officers present, and proceeds to find a bloody glove on the property. All of this with no search warrant. One huge deviation between the miniseries and book is that the show opens with footage of the 1991 Rodney King beating and subsequent rioting. The book opens with a poorly spelled love letter from O.J. to Nicole.
