19 yrs ago today, I was in labor!
My heavenly father gave me the most glorious gift I could ever receive.
A Baby girl on Christmas!
( just hours B4 her passing )
I got a chance to play....
While he watched from the side of the stage...
I can move on now......Hahaha

My identity is very clear to me now.
I am.... A BLACK WOMAN.
I no longer have to be a "Credit"
I dont have to be a "Symbol" to anybody.
I dont have to be a "1st" to ANYbody.
I dont have to be an imitation of a WHITE WOMAN.....
that Hollywood hoped Id become.
Im ME...and, Im like NOBODY else.

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 :
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.
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
Bless His Life
