Funny, in a sad and rather pathetic way that people are still fixated on race, no matter what your race is.
Forget all the weirdness and allegations surrounding Jackson's life.... His fan base was likely the largest ever... GLOBALLY!
People from all walks of life, all races and all over the planet were fans of his music and talents.
They didn't seem to care what color he was, nor did he try to appeal to any specific race.
Jackson's transformation was not a turn on his own "race"
When he was going through his adolescent period he suffered from acne, his father ridiculed him, and joked about the size of his nose... He admitted
that he felt ugly, and from that time until his death he continued to feel ugly in his OWN skin... It is a tragic story of very low self esteem taken
to a far extreme.
The black race has no more claim over Jackson or his legacy than any other race does. He was a human being, talented, very troubled and no one ever
tried to save him from himself.
What race are YOU?
Is it really possible to abandon a race?
If so I'd like to leave the human race, there has got to be a better race out there somewhere.
