Birth of a Nation'hood: Gaze, Script, and Spectacle in the O. J. Simpson Case
Write a customer review. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. This is required reading for anybody interested in understanding the circus around O. Simpson's trial, in particular for liberl whites who pretended to have felt betrayed. The essays hardly deal with questions of guilt or innocence although I got the feeling that most authors did believe in O. Essays are somewhat uneven, but in general very good and enlightening. Disappointing for me, of course were Ann duCille with her pre-digested Marxism, and Claudia Brodsky Lacour, who spoke more of Kant than of OJ, with a Baroque and convoluted style, quite appropriate for the Enlightment but hardly for the subject at hand.
Birth of a Nation’hood
A question that came to my mind was why white Liberals tend to believe that African Americans should be forever grateful when a White Liberal treats them as equal. And then, they feel betrayed when their white hands are not licked in gratitude. After all, it is not a favor. Mind you, I happen to be what is normally known as white.
In summary, excellent collection, to be highly recommended to objective people trying to understand the bitterness of African Americans in today's America.
Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I love Toni Morrison. The essays in this book hysterically negate the dead body of Nicole Brown Simpson, not to mention the friend who was returning her glasses. The essays reek of bad faith, and try to obscure the reality of the crime with the historical racism of America, in order to make people feel sorry for O.
Simpson, a goal that was not realised with this reader.
Gaze, Script, and Spectacle in the O. J. Simpson Case
One author suggests that Nicole's family didn't really love her, because if they had they would have hired a professional killer to kill O. The fact that they didn't proves his innocence. I'm not kidding - a close reading of this book will find sustained faulty logic and a delusional hysteria which reflects very poorly on the book's famous editor, a writer for whom I used to have some respect.
