CUNY professor Marc Lamont Hill says OJ Simpson killed 2 people, but his acquittal was 'correct' and 'necessary' to fight racism

The professor made the comments on Thursday after Simpson's death.

CUNY Professor Marc Lamont Hill posted on Thursday after OJ Simpson's death, saying that his acquittal for murder "was the correct and necessary result of a racist criminal legal system" even though he "killed two people."

Hill posted to X, "OJ Simpson was an abusive liar who abandoned his community long before he killed two people in cold blood."

"His acquittal for murder was the correct and necessary result of a racist criminal legal system. But he’s still a monster, not a martyr," he added. 

OJ Simpson died on Wednesday at age 76 after battling cancer. 

Hill is a long-time left-wing activist and has been a political commentator for CNN. In November of 2018 he was fired from his position at the network after saying that justice requires a "free Palestine from the river to the sea" in a speech to the UN.

Hill also told people his thoughts online in a YouTube livestream on Thursday and said Simpson should not have been found guilty even if he committed the crimes because of a "racist police officer" involved. 

Hill further added that the police officer in the case Mark Fuhrman would say the n-word and lie, however, to fight the racism of the justice system, Hill added that OJ Simpson should not have been found guilty of any crime even though the deceased football player killed people in cold blood. 

“He abandoned his community, he terrorized his wife, he abused his wife, he murdered his wife and her boyfriend in a rage of jealous anger,” Hill said.  

Adding, Hill said that despite these actions, Simpson “should have been found not guilty” and was a “referendum on the system” that had a “racist cop" at the time.
