    University of Southern California cornerback Josh Shaw is a real American hero. He’s currently sidelined with two high ankle sprains after jumping out of a second story window to save his drowning cousin who was in a pool but couldn’t swim, according to ESPN. “I would do it again for whatever kid it was, it did not have to be my nephew,” Shaw told ESPN. “My ankles really hurt, but I am lucky to be surrounded by the best trainers and doctors in the world.

  • A Black And White View Of The O.J. Simpson Case 20 Years Later

    The Simpson murder trial exposed many painful truths. None hit harder than the idea that white and black people often look at the same facts and see different realities. Today, 20 years after the case captivated and divided the nation, few opinions about the saga have changed. Despite two decades' worth of increasing racial acceptance, the Simpson case still reflects deep-rooted obstacles to a truly united America. Most people still believe that the black football legend killed his white ex-wife and her friend, polls show. But for many African-Americans, his likely guilt remains overwhelmed by a potent mix: the racism...

    Seventeen years after her brother Ron’s brutal murder, Kim Goldman wrote to O.J. Simpson in jail. “I’m sure it’s really weird to be getting a letter but you’ve been on my mind recently,” Goldman, 42, wrote in 2011. “I realize our few interactions have not been great — but I am wondering if you would grant me a visitation, to let me get to know the real you.” It was a stunning act of forgiveness, and it was just that — an act. Her real goal was to savor the sight of the disgraced gridiron great humiliated in prison, she...

Many admitted it openly then, and still do today. But that was the last time a trial held such attention for such obviously racial reasons. The celebrations when OJ got away with murder...

On Monday, the former football hero returns to Clark County District Court with a different set of lawyers hoping to convince a judge that Galanter shouldn't have been handling his armed robbery-kidnapping case — that the lawyer who was paid nearly $700,000 for Simpson's defense had a personal interest in preventing himself from being identified as a witness to the crimes and so misled Simpson that the former...

Yes. 9 years for this particular crime is enough.

    America’s self-anointed food police have a new punching bag in their obesity crusade: fruit juice. We’re not making this up. The Los Angeles Times reported yesterday that a growing number of dietary do-gooders are now pointing their fingers at juice as a culprit for fattening waistlines:The inconvenient truth, many experts say, is that 100% fruit juice poses the same obesity-related health risks as Coke, Pepsi and other widely vilified beverages. … [I]t's time juice lost its wholesome image, these experts say."It's pretty much the same as sugar water," said Dr. Charles Billington, an appetite researcher at the University of Minnesota....

    It seems O.J. Simpson is a master of race relations. Earlier this year, the double-murder acquittee had an ill-matched cellmate at Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada, where he's serving 33 years for kidnapping. "The guy's a white supremacist," Simpson's daughter, Arnelle, griped to a spy at the time.

    Christie Prody was a faithful girlfriend to O.J. Simpson for 13 years, even as her family members questioned why she would date a man who many still believe killed his ex-wife and her friend. But now Prody said that she often feared for her life during her rocky relationship with the former football star. She says she believes Simpson killed Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman in 1994, a belief that's based on comments Simpson made to her during their relationship. "It took me many years to realize and face that hard, terrible truth," she told "Good Morning America." "Things...

    A memorabilia dealer who claims he suffered four heart attacks after O.J. Simpson robbed him at gunpoint is suing the imprisoned NFL star in civil court in Las Vegas for assault, battery and other charges. In a complaint filed Friday in Clark County District Court, Bruce Fromong’s attorney asked for a jury trial to collect damages of at least $30,000 each from Simpson and six other men involved in a September 2007 confrontation in a low-rent casino hotel room. Fromong and another dealer went to the meeting at the Palace Station casino prepared to sell collectibles worth $100,000, including footballs...

    No, I don't think Obama is another OJ Simpson. The two men could not be more different. It's a common marketing strategy that links them. White guilt and that ache for black vindication were a huge part of OJ's celebrity campaign. That's also what got Obama elected over Hillary and then McCain. David Axelrod as a PR maven had obviously studied the opinion polls about black celebrities. They knew that a black man who looked and sounded good on TV could roll over the opposition; the media wouldn't dare to examine his background. OJ had demonstrated it, along with Oprah...
