The Context of White Supremacy hosts the 3rd 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 terminated. We’ll keep this in mind while reading his account of the most well documented, most watched court trial of all time. During last week’s session we learned about Simpson’s youth and rise to gridiron stardom at the University of Southern California and in the National Football League. Toobin explains how The Juice married his first wife, Marguerite Whitley, before committing adultery with an 18-year-old Nicole. Toobin details years of alleged domestic abuse – including one 1989 incident where Simpson sped away from officers as oppose to being arrested for spousal abuse. Interestingly, the only reason Simpson was prosecuted for this episode is because of a letter written by detective Mark Fuhrman. While documenting the days in 1994 leading to Simpson being charged with double murder, Toobin alleges that the L.A. Sentinel’s Danny Schatzman, lead journalist of the SoCal black newspaper, wrote reports that dictated how black people would think and speak about the Simpson case for the next year. Inexplicably, Toobin makes this claim while acknowledging the Sentinel was a failing publication with fewer than 20,000 subscribers.
