Obama Advisor: OJ Simpson ‘Represented the Black Community’ Because He Killed ‘Two White People’

Former President Barack Obama’s White House Senior Policy Advisor Ashley Allison has made shocking statements about the late O.J. Simpson’s alleged links to the “black community.”

As Slay News reported, Simpson’s family revealed Thursday that he died at age 76 on Wednesday after a battle with cancer.

The death of the former Hollywood actor and NFL star has garnered mixed responses, however.

Some remembered the controversial figure for his achievements in sports while others focused on his murder trial in the 1990s.

Simpson was famously charged with the murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman in 1994.

However, he was acquitted of the charges in a long and controversial public trial, as most will likely remember.

The decision divided public opinion at the time and the debate is still raging on in the wake of his death.

During an appearance on CNN, ex-Obama adviser Ashley Allison commented on the controversy during a segment on “Remembering O.J Simpson.”

However, Allison shockingly claimed that Simpson “represented something for the black community” because he killed “two white people.”

Allison noted Simpson was not a civil rights activist or “a social justice leader.”

However, she then continued by alleging:

“He represented something for the black community in that moment, in that trial, particularly because there were two white people killed.

“And the history around black people persecuted during slavery,” she added.

Allison then alleged there was racial tension during the O.J. Simpson trial which still exists in America today.

She said the racial tension can’t be fixed until America has an honest conversation about black citizens.

The former White House advisor then warned that more “moments like O.J. Simpson” will manifest until that happens.

Meanwhile, the co-host on ABC’s “The View” also weighed in on the debate following news of Simpson’s death.

Just minutes after the news broke, the hosts said there was a great sense of “injustice” that Simpson died without being convicted of murder.

“Who doesn’t remember the trial of the century?” Hostin said

“You know, I mean, it was an 11-month-long trial.

“And the Bronco, and I think it’s one of those questions, where were you at when OJ was in that Bronco?” she asked, referring to the infamous slow-speed “white Bronco” chase as Simpson was pursued by police in a car driven by Al Cowlings.

“I remember it and I also remember feeling a great sense of injustice happened, and it’s one of the reasons I became a prosecutor because I remember watching Chris Darden and I remember watching Marcia Clark.

“I remember watching the late great Johnnie Cochran and just the masterful job that I thought everyone did,” Hostin continued.

Co-host Joy Behar asked Hostin what the “tragedy” for her was and Hostin responded with, “the injustice.”

“The criminal trial, the fact that he was not found guilty,” she continued.

“But he was found liable later, civilly.”

Behar chimed in and said, “Like Trump was found liable for rape.”

“Everything goes back to Trump,” Hostin quipped.

“Until he’s gone, I will not rest,” Behar vowed.
