Mainstream White America loves Trump, and still hates OJ - both those two facts speak World Book Encyclopedia volumes about this empire.

The love for Trump is simple: he is the “great White hope,” “the Chosen One” who will take back “their” America and make it 1954 White again. They are him, he is them baby!

Quite apparently, mainstream White America doesn’t see a wicked, corrupt, morally and ethically, if not also financially bankrupt 77-year-old man-cub. No, instead they see a strong, tough, “real” man willing to tell the Niggers, Spics, Chinks, fags, Dikes, etc., etc, etc., to kiss his White ass and go to hell.

Yes, grow up, these are the “terms of endearment” MAGA true believers call Americans of color behind their closed doors, and would love to say to our faces and suffer no consequences or repercussions.

They want to return to 1952.

And isn’t that exactly how White America spoke to us all until about 50 or 60 years ago when they began to, not develop a conscience, but instead realized how they treated Black folks looked and sounded barbaric and uncivilized to a world of color? A world in which they depicted themselves to be the most evolved, elevated, and esteemed race of humans on the planet.

Any comparison of Trump and OJ illustrates, in the most graphic and highly defined technicolor fashion, the intense and unquestionable differences between “of color” and White folks all across these undeniably divided States of America.

It doesn’t get more polarizing than these two men, right? Put an “OJ didn’t do it” sign in your front yard today, and put a “Trump for President” sign in your yard. An “OJ is an Innocent” T-shirt, a “Trump 2024” cap - and see how far you get through the day without a confrontation.

Polarization is not what these two men reflect and embody. America is more than polarized; there are many sub-groups self-divided into opposing groups and most of these groups have a legitimate and sizable beef, complaint with… White folks. And their top witness is any “K through College” US history textbook.

If there’s anything outside and beyond the golden gridiron career Simpson carved out, we can thank OJ for, it is that his murder trial shined a spotlight on the racial Grand Canyon that stands between White Americans and Black Americans. It is so graphically and dramatically illustrated, in stark black and white - that we see the world around us in extremely contrasting ways.

OJ was a living and breathing riddle wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma, a puzzling conundrum tucked into US History. “The Juice” became the ultimate cultural/racial litmus test of his era. You could ascertain a lot about an individual based on their answer to: Did he do it?

Black folks used it to determine if you were a good white person, while White folks used it to determine if you were one of the few good negroes - and I’d suggest not much has changed since 1994.

White folks loved OJ, he was the conforming and docile flip-side of aggressive Jim Brown and arrogant Ali, he was the moderate Black guy, one of the few “good ones.” So much so that he was allowed, permitted if you will, to marry the Blonde bombshell, because he had transcended “Black” and was just OJ.

Orentrhral James said: “I’m not Black, I’m OJ…”

Think Tiger Woods before the golf cart incident and the womanizing revelations.

These are the only Black men I can recall who were granted “Honorary” White guy status. Maybe Jordan?

That’s a significant part of why White Americans lost their minds back then, they felt so very betrayed and conned by both. Recall how with Tiger, after the golf cart incident the jokes were - “So he committed adultery, yeah he must be Black.”

Similar to how Bill Clinton was deemed Black because he went on Arsenio Hall’s show in Ray Bans” and blew the sax like a blue-eyed soul singer, but most important to determining his genuine and authentic blackness was the fact he was unfaithful to his wife - so the pre-MAGA folks branded him the first Black President.

Keep up, read a little bit, you’ll figure it out.

OJ did transcend race - he was allowed, permitted to do as he pleased, but had a conflicted relationship with mainstream Black America, folks contended like so many superstars, he’d sold out, talked White, acted White, and left that sister, Margarita for that White chick… who he later nearly decapitated.

Nevertheless, an all-Black South Central LA jury was not about to convict this brother of killing a Negro-loving White woman, in order to satisfy and please a racist White America. White people, Please!!!

They acquitted him of murdering a Nordic Princess and Jewish prince, Ron Goldman, and the LAPD were exposed for planting evidence - Mark Furhman. Black America erupted, not in euphoria, but satisfaction, because for the first time, a Black man bought his innocence. It was like - every dog has their day and now White folks knew what it felt like to watch a man get away with murder.

OJ got “White folks justice,” just look at Trump now, a 100 counts and he won’t do a minute behind bars!

Black folks had seen this sad scenario play out a gazillion times. Look no further than the hundreds of thousands of Black folks spread all across US History who were killed for looking at a white woman!

Back at the end of the 20th century, and even still today, White America almost demanded Black folks see OJ as the devil. But we don’t.

Why? Because it’s complicated, as complicated as: the enemy of my enemy is my friend.

Now today, Black America regards Trump as the face of good old, good ol’ boy racism and sexism, yet mainstream White America is dismissive if not oblivious of his obviously odious and bigoted beliefs. He will be White America’s voice and soulless soul, they could give a damn about the highly offensive innuendos, slights, and insults he’s leveled at Black people.

Instead, most of White America loves the man. He is their “great white hope” and savior from the dreaded diversity, inclusion, and equality monsters who are at America’s door, banging on it, demanding fairness and justice, demanding Democracy.

We gain and broaden our perspective of America when we analyze and examine our reactions to OJ and Trump. Since so many White folks, the mean and nasty ones in particular, love Trump, I understand as a black man he must embody both all they love and hate.

Trump is for a lot of white people what O.J.’s acquittal was to a lot of Black folks ― you know it’s wrong, but it feels good,” Obama reportedly said.

OJ and Trump… the enemy of my enemy… is my friend.
