Black or White
This just in - Michael Jackon is acquitted on all accounts!
Many of you don't know me, but those of you that have actually known me in person and not just in the blogosphere know that at many weddings and social gatherings I do a Michael Jackson interpretive dance to his song - Black or White.
Just last weekend the dance was requested for a wedding and due to the controversy I only did part of the dance and it wasn't a solo performance - I invited everyone to join in and do it with me.
Each year at work we have a diversity talent show and for the past 2 years I have done my Michael Jackson dance and it has been a hit - now I can keep dancing my Michael Jackson dance, I can keep moonwalking, I can keep grabbing my crotch and kicking and spinning and yelling out "sha-mon" without ridicule.
All along I felt that the parents should be the ones prosecuted in a trial like this. They should be prosecuted for allowing their children to stay overnight with Michael. Would you entrust your Jack Daniels to an alcoholic and then when he drank it run to the police? It's not shame on the alcoholic - it is shame on you!
As much as I have loved Michael over the years, I think that if he did indeed do anything inappropriate with children that he should serve time like anyone else. I can't imagine a jury letting Michael go unless there was a shadow of doubt - I mean how could you live with yourself if you let someone go that abused children? Could it be that the children made the stories up?
I will say this, I have known people to make up far worse stories for far less money. What would really be criminal would be to have to go through all that Michael has gone through if he really didn't do anything at all.
