    Michael Jackson and the Black Nation of Islam

    When Michael Jackson wrote the lyrics "But if you're thinkin' about my baby/It don't matter if you're black or white" in his hit single Black or White, he could claim significant expertise. Jackson has had a fair crack at being both. First there was the African-American child star from Gary, Indiana - which became the most segregated city in America - who was the ethnic and aesthetic antithesis of the white-skinned, white-bread Osmonds.

    Brother Uzoka ... Thank you for sharing, but posting entire articles without the owner's permission is against our forum rules. I've edited the piece above, leaving a few sentences and links to the sites the article can be found on. It was a little difficult getting to the article on Mathaba.net but i did a search and found it on Guardian's web site, and linked to it also.

    Again, thanks for sharing.

    :heart:
