The author shares his thoughts on his life with Nicole Brown Simpson, his children, the media, the judicial system, spouse abuse, religion, racism, and his innocence of the murder of his wife

Blackwell North Amer
In this book, O. J. Simpson speaks out for the first time since his arrest for the deaths of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman in June of 1994. I Want To Tell You is an emotional and factual self-portrait of O. J.'s mind at this critical time.
As O. J. waits to be judged by a jury of his peers, his commentary, thoughts, and reflections are juxtaposed with letters selected from the more than 300,000 he has received from people across the United States, since being incarcerated at the Los Angeles County Jail.
At last, and in his own words, O. J. talks about: his innocence, his life with Nicole Brown Simpson, his kids, the Media, the Judicial System, spousal abuse, religion, and racism.
Here is the real O. J. Simpson, the human side of the athlete and public figure who was an American icon long before the events of last June brought him under the scrutiny of the public eye. Today O. J. sits, confined to a five-by-eight-foot jail cell, a man deprived of his most basic freedoms, awaiting his trial and the future.

This book was written before the trial. O.J. states the proceeds are to support his defense. At $23.95 CAN in 1995 for this fancy work of fiction. He claims he had school children sending in their weekly allowance to support him. Some of these letters I cannot believe how gullible and silly people are. They state they "know" him, that he would never murder someone. People who have never met him before in their lives or simply briefly in passing at an event will support a murderer with a history of violence toward their former partner ignoring a strong chain of evidence. Boggles the mind. He does print some outright hate mail he received along with letters on non-support who's writers rely on the facts at hand and not blind faith to form their opinion of likely guilt. O.J. states "once again they don't sign it". How many sane people would sign a letter of non-support to a suspected homicidal maniac with power? O.J. claims he will not respond to unsigned letters as the writer lacks "conviction and integrity" and he wont "increase their presence" by replying. "One can only question their true faith". The ones calling him out with facts and evidence are the ones he suggests have questionable faith-all because they don't sign their letters. He's really laid thick the religious play for support in the book. So many letters from supporters giving religious references and so sure of his innocence. I would not doubt if he began to believe himself as a Deity. Being found "not guilty" in a criminal court is entirely different than being found innocent. He was never found innocent. Celebrity and the race card, can get you away with double homicide in the first degree. This is a very evil man.
