“My identity is very clear to me now.

I am.... A BLACK WOMAN.

I’m Free.

I no longer have to be a "Credit"

I don’t have to be a "Symbol" to anybody.

I don’t have to be a "1st" to ANYbody.

I don’t have to be an imitation of a WHITE WOMAN.....

that Hollywood hoped I’d become.

I’m ME...and, I’m like NOBODY else.”

"MICHAEL JACKSON"

Mr. Jackson struggled desperately with THIS Planet...

 

It's NO Debate that he was THE MOST Famous Human of the "20th & 21st" centuries

and, arguably the most famous to have EVER walked this earth

 

Earthlings should've known from his "Artwork" alone....that he wasn't like the average human

 

THIS was his "FIRST" Gift :

"Vision"

Let's Be REAL...

Michael Jackson was the 1st & only Negro in Rotation on MTV....

MTV was pressured to play MJ's "Billie Jean"  

Which I'm sure was the Primary reason for that album's success.

 

ed & MJ.jpg (44843 bytes)

 

It's deep when "Ed Sullivan" can put MJ on at 11yrs. old...

And, they...  ( MTV ) had a problem with it 13yrs. later ?

 

So much so..that the president of CBS threatened to snatch

"ALL" of their artists ( Journey, Men at Work  etc. )

If MTV didn't play MJ's video ?!?!

 

*CBS / Columbia had more than 90% of all MTV's most popular artists & vids at the time*

 

Note: "MJ" also serves as a euphemism for BLACK ARTISTS in general...

 

I hope they'll allow him to Rest....

But I have ZERO FAITH
