2 Comments on "The Michael Jackson Tapes Review"

  1. Dear Sister Alberta Parish,

    I was very happy to see you put your own “abuse” challenges out there during you discussion of Michael Jackson because for me, that gave your opinions more validity than any research articles. I also believe that your “abusive episodes” that took place at age five are still challenging you today. It's so believable that you have problems trusting “Men” based on your negative engagement with them. Based on the picture I see of you, you're a very attractive Sister and I believe you would have no problem attracting a top notch man to be your partner and or husband if things went that far! Give yourself an opportunity to be happy with a man that meets your concept of what is good for you. Life is short and you deserve as much happiness as you can get! Don't let what I perceive as insecurity deprive YOU of Love with a good Brother.

    As for the long time accusations that Joe Jackson mistreated and abused all of the Jackson Children is something I'm not totally in agreement with! Why? I'm a “Baby Boomer” and I came up during the Michael Jackson and The Jackson Five era. What “We” today call abuse was well documented discipline in many families in the Black Community. If we're going to talk truth to power, we have to look back at the Times and Era that the Jackson's Family were raised by Mr. & Mrs. Jackson. Mom had something to do with the discipline because she was the other adult in that family. Being truthful with the very conservative life style of Black Folks during the growing up years of the Jacksons was a tough of Children through discipline and all of Us from that time know exactly what I'm talking about.

    In concluding, I believe based on growing up with Michael Jackson from Indianapolis to Motown fame shows that the great entertainer needed pschological and physical help from Doctors. Michael realized his atypical personality at a very young age, but the family didn't see it because Michael was on Stage making money and his illnesses were never dealt with in a forthright manner. I place his “drug dependency” as a full blown addict at the top of the list of things that no one in the Jackson Family dealt with. I include his siblings, Joe Jackson, his mother, and not one of the paid physicians he had on staff at some unusually high salaries. We can't continue to look the other way about how Michael Jackson paid large sums of dollars to take care of his addiction right in front of our colletctive faces. One thing Michael is one hundred percent correct about and that's his statement that everyone around him only wanted what he could do for them. That interprets into getting money from Michael to do every and anything Michael wanted. Yes, Michael Jackson story is tragic, but Michael participated in the addiction part because he used drugs to avoid dealing with His Truth!

    Finally, I'm a fanatic when it comes to the music genius of Michael Jackson. I love the fact that he was one of the greatest entertainers of all time and he showed it through every step on stage. His lyrics indicate his love for women and that is directly opposite to how he felt that he couldn't trust women. The truth is right in front of us and all we have to do is listen to the lyrics of the songs Michael Jackson made worldwide anthems! I'm missing Michael Jackson and The Jackson Five right now! Long live the legacy of Michael Jackson, but let's tell Our Story because we lived with and through the legacy of the greatest entertainer of our times!

    Peace and Blessings,
