Differences in opinions about the facts in the Simpson trial itself continue to divide whites and blacks. Regardless of the verdict, most whites believe Simpson was guilty of murder; most African-Americans say he was innocent. Two-thirds of all African-Americans think that there was a conspiracy to frame Simpson for the murders; six in 10 whites don't believe in such a conspiracy.
And both groups suspect that racial issues continue to tint the other group's view of the case. Sixty percent of all whites believe that blacks who think Simpson is innocent hold that view mostly because of Simpson's race. Among African-Americans, 58 percent think that whites who maintain Simpson is guilty feel that way mostly based on Simpson's race.
