The Context of White Supremacy hosts the 6th 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 enjoyed re-newed success following the wildly popular 2016 FX miniseries – which is based on Toobin’s work. Toobin compiled 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 brandished his penis and began masturbating. He was initially suspended by the New Yorker. After an 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. Last week’s session examined initial charges that the defense would play the so-called “Race Card.” Toobin describes his July 1994 interview with Robert Shapiro, where Simpson’s attorney explained that they would pursue the professional record and Racist activity of detective Mark Fuhrman. Toobin and Simpson’s defense unearthed public records documenting Fuhrman’s failed attempt to secure an early retirement because of alleged racist thoughts and behaviors he devolved being an officer. Johnnie L. Cochran Jr. joined the Simpson defense later that summer. Tobbin’s account of this hire emphasizes OJ’s intellectual inferiority, crediting Shapiro with Cochran’s acquisition. Cochran’s autobiography describes “ritual” phone calls and pleads from OJ, where the jailed star maintained his innocence and begged for legal assistance.
