You had me until you brought in OJ’s acquittal.

I felt as you do for the past 20+ years until earlier this year when I viewed the remarkable ESPN documentary, “O.J.: Made in America,” directed by Ezra Edleman (not to be confused with the contemporaneously broadcast docu-drama, Ryan Murphy’s The People v. O.J. Simpson.) I cannot recommend it highly enough. Nowhere does it even begin to suggest that O.J. was not guilty of the murder of Nicole and of Ron Goldman, but it nonetheless embeds you deeply enough in the racial turmoil of 1990’s LA to at least understand in a real sense the jury’s verdict and the reaction to it. I guarantee you’ll not regret the time taken to watch it, should you choose to do so.
