NAACP Calls for OJ Comeback
"O.J. Simpson was never convicted of anything, yet society has ruthlessly excluded him from his chosen professions as a sports analyst and an actor," said White.
"Yesterday, I said that we should all aid Michael Vick in his rehabilitation and welcome him back into the community after he serves his time. Well, the same goes for Mr. Simpson."
White said Simpson was a victim of the same sort of "rush to judgement," that Vick recently faced.
"A jury found him not guilty in the regrettable stabbing deaths of his wife and that other guy and yet 12 years later Mr. Simpson is still vilified and prevented from making the sort of living to which he is entitled," White said.
At the same press conference, White also called for Ms. Crystal Gail Magnum, the accuser in the Duke lacrosse rape case, to be reinstated in her job at Jiggles Strip Club and for her corporate sponsors to immediately reactivate all her endorsement deals.
