I am not an American.

But how those seminal trials effect the pyche of people everywhere. Especially the Black male psyche

I cant remember the trial of the officers who beat Rodney King. Perhaps my Mother protected me from seeing that on the news. I do remember seeing the European Football championships the same year so its not as if we lived in a cave. I like to think she shielded me. I cant ask her now. She died 18 years ago

I can remember the OJ trial. Regardless of what we now know, at that time, we wanted him…
