  • "We didn't clap when the acquittal of Simpson came for O.J. We were clapping for Johnnie," the Rev. Al Sharpton told the packed West Angeles Cathedral, drawing applause from a throng that ranged from the Rev. Jesse Jackson to Michael Jackson and his attorney Thomas Mesereau Jr.

    "We were clapping because for decades our brothers, our cousins, our uncles had to stand in the well with no one to stand up for them. And finally a black man came and said, 'If it don't fit — you must acquit,'" Sharpton said, referring to Cochran's famous quote from Simpson's trial about a glove found at the murder scene.
