Just wondering. Don't White people ever have their "civil rights" violated. Seems that the only cases tried by Feds are if a minority doesnt like the outcome of the case. Why wasn't OJ tried for Civil Right's violations?

Yeah! And why don't we have a "White History Month"? Boy for unfair!! Joe, here's a newsflash. The game has been rigged for white people for 300 years in this country. 200 years of slavery followed by another 100 years of Jim Crow. It's only been in the last 50 years that anything has been done to increase equality. And no magical thinking is going to change the effects of 300 years of white supremacy in 50 years.
