There are so many things wrong with Michael Jackson gracing the cover I can’t begin to count. On the plus side is is racially inclusive that Ebony magazine is now featuring white people, and it’s kind of opening up a new audience for their magazine. Just think of all the Catholic priests, white people, circus animals, and his few million crazy fans will read the magazine for the first time.
Michael Jackson’s Thriller Album cover from 25 years ago. Back then the both the albums and Jackson were black and now neither of them are.
I’m not totally certain whether or not Michael Jackson was the first white person on the cover or not, although I could find that scary looking guy who was trying to sell me a subscription door to door though. In 1998, Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison called Clinton “the first Black president,” saying “Clinton displays almost every trope of blackness: single-parent household, born poor, working-class, saxophone-playing, McDonald’s-and-junk-food-loving boy from Arkansas,” and comparing Clinton’s sex life, scrutinized despite his career accomplishments, to the stereotyping and double standards that blacks typically endure. That’s cool I now have way more black friends than I knew.
This new photograph proves several things (aside from the obvious fresh coat of skin, new hair, nose and mouth). Michael Jackson may never have been molesting young boys – he may simply have been sucking the very white out of them. In any event whatever came out was that color anyway – I guess you are what you eat if nothing else.
This could actually explain most of Corey Haim’s problems…
