    Were you one of the 27.1 million viewers watching our Brother?

    Do you think he'll really air his own version of that video!?

    You can also read the 1993 court document first accusing Michael of child abuse (so the site claims). I thought that deal was private, confidential??

    What is up with our Brother?! :(

    :heart:

    Micheal is as psychologically normal as the next man. He has problems (Who doesn't). They are a whole bunch of leeches (media, Martin Bashir) on his nizzuts. l feel like he's just a different individual. Nobody was hatin' when thriller came out and you had the glove and red jacket and the curl doing the moonwalk in the mirror :D

    our brother has many problems at hand with all the hype about
    his children and the secret of his life he pose this man is no
    different then the next .... just a bit confused
    j'h is right nobody hated when he was thrilling , moonwalking , hollin' beat it !
    it's become more then a myth today for many media , press. all
    dem others who silently roam him for a break through

    Mr.Jackson need to come out the darkness and into da light....
    he's confused in many ways
    what he is not what we wanna be
    what he become is more then he can handle

    I agree that he has problems... I agree that he was used... but MJ is not my brother... he has never really wanted to be my brother; and now that the majority is doing to him, what they do to so many--- he is my brother; I think not.
    Micheal Jackson, like so many in the African-American community; when they feel that they have "assumed" a certain level of economic or social acceptance... they forget from whence they came; and certainly those they are akin to...
    Micheal has gone so far as to try to make himself a white person; because as far as I am concerned; he is no man - and something that Af-Ams should shield their kids from; especially black males...
    my brother does not try to make himself white; my brother (whatever his socio-economic status) forget that I am here or help in destroying my existence; my brother does not go out and pay for white kids to call his own; and my brother surely doesn't use problems, like racism, that I have to live with and fight every day to tear down the barriers... to bolster his own agenda.

    Hey Happy ... good to be reading you again, welcome back. :)

    I couldn't disagree with you more. My brothers have done many things, including all you say Michael has done. Some have done much worse, killing, stealing, other forms of self hate manifesting itself in their lives ... but they are still my Brothers. The same holds true for my Sisters. No matter where life takes her, she is still my Sister. I don't think we can afford to throw any away, regardless of how hopeless they appear. Many are suffering the effects of self-hate to some degree or another, manifesting itself in a variety of different ways ... Michael's came out like this. He's still my Brother.

    :heart:

    I stand by my contention Destee... We, in the African-American community have to stop being the shoulders to cry on for everyone in this society when it hits the fan for them; It is like a mantra... "catching hell, go get some black folk!"

    Even if I felt a small shred of sympathy for MJ; and I don't, I still could not call him my brother... he is not a man!

    If White America takes him back into their fold; he'll be back to his normal self; or rather "abnormal" self...

    I love my people, and I am willing to take the good with the bad... even when the bad sometimes seem to overwhelm... but my love comes with a price tag, and that is reciprosity (sp. ?)...
    We have given it so much to others, we don't know how to give it to ourselves or each other.... well, I want/ do / and will continue to give it.... but damnit, it is no longer for free, or to be spent in places where I ain't gettin' none... and Never Never Land, ain't where I'm looking for it either...

    Peace Sister (hope that is okay); and thanks for the welcome back.

    sir Jackson need to understand that the right help is
    out their and indeed he feel the change but by that
    art of his own request he's our brutha but far off base
    lost in da ulgly sad life he been down roads many of
    our children before us and after gone through
    the greatest love is lovin one self which he lack in for self hate
    the man is moonwalking in his own pitty
    he need to check self and be whom he is.....

    happy69, understand 2 things.

    How could you reform him by not first accepting him as your brother?

    Some of our peeps catch madd drama (O.J, M.J, J.J :D ) and then decide to run back to their community. Good!
    l see it as a chance for reform, reminder, etc....

    If God penalized and turned away from you for your actions as you have done Micheal Jackson, you wouldn't like it.

    Look at how the man (he is a man by the way) grew up and have more understanding about the roots of his problems instead of neglect.
