black people don’t give enough credit to michael jackson
This is not gonna be a long detailed post, I’ll go more in-depth at a later time.
-Off the Wall was a big success, but Michael felt slighted at the 81 grammys and was determined to do better
-Broke barriers with Thriller -revolutionised the music video. Showed people music videos could have concepts, storylines, special effects, STRUCTURE. Black people weren’t getting rotation on MTV, they did after Thriller.
-The most successful album of all time was by a black man!
-Won 7 grammys in 1984, his determination paid off.
-Then Michael took it up a notch in business and shitted all over the music industry and his close friend Beatles member Paul McCartney. Bought the Beatles music catalogue. He owned it and continued to own alot more songs of various artists in the future, building an empire. Apparently Paul McCartney confronted him and Michael just replied, ‘well, thats just business’. xD
All I’m saying is after MJ achieved so much with Thriller, its like it touched a nerve with these people and they conspired against him. The rumours started in the late 80s; buying the elephant mans bones, sleeping a time chamber, ALL FALSE. But this was how his image as a powerful black man who reached heights, which no other black artist was able to reach, slowly started to become ruined.
Michael was vary aware of our white supremacist system and how it oppressed black people. He talked about it in songs like They Don’t Care About Us and D.S -a song about that racist white man Tom Sneddon who was responsible for the 1993 allegations and later for the 2003 ones.
His fight against Sony in 2001 was a racial one -he reffered to Tony Mottola as a ‘devil’ (LOL, black people love calling white ppl devils) and a racist. I don’t want to go into it but what Sony tried to do to him was fucked up. Do your research! Find all the speeches he did during that era.
I believe he never got enough support from black people and I know it happened as soon as his skin started changing. You all know that was vitiligo and there is an extensive amount of proof all over the internet. Its just a shame he had to have it.
Theres alotttt more things to say, more in depth too but its far too long
The adrenalin as the ride takes you through loops, twists you, jerks you, catapults you, throws you in the air.. Blood rushed to my brain and I screamed so loud I got a sore throat. It was such an experience that it actually affected me psychlogically. After leaving the amusements, I closed my eyes and still felt like I was on a ride lol. Even had dreams. Proof that theme park rides can actually really affect you subconsciously. The adrenaline and feelings of euphoria are not just temporary; the high feeling is still present many moments later.
I spend most times feeling confused and out of place. Incomplete. I felt like I moved forward, but did I really move anywhere at all? I have never felt so many hands holding me back than I do now. Where are these hands from and how do I get rid of them? I cannot see them but I know that they are there. I feel them; their grip, their force and their movement. They are demanding to not let me go. Fucking hands.
