That black support for Simpson is more than three greater than white support for him has nothing to do with skin color per se. It’s the consequence of an unfortunate belief–ideology, if you will–in the acceptability of killing white women that just happens to afflict blacks more than it does whites, you see!
The poll portal is accompanied by text describing the sex differences in favorability. It notes that men have a more favorable opinion of Simpson than women do.
The black-white gap is 2.5x the sex gap. Simpson is obviously bad news, though, so pointing out that blacks are fonder of him than whites are would be poor form. Better to portray women as the ones with good sense and men as the troglodytes.
While 2 out of 3 black women view Simpson unfavorably, a majority of black men like him. Pointing out that most black guys approve of a Big Man who pounds a mudshark before murdering her is doubleplus poor form. As such, I sure as hell won’t mention it here!
