Michael Jackson – Guilty till proven innocent

Filed under: Music,Opinion — Randomizer @ 6:02 am

I’ve been like the biggest fan of MJ, at least amongst the ppl I’ve met in my life so far, for as long as I can remember. Following his career from the Jacksons 5 till his last album, ‘Invincible’, I’ve seen and heard it all… and most of all , loved every bit of it.

I think the world as of today is divided into just two simple categories: The people who love him, and the people who absolutely detest him. I’ve hardly ever come across someone who’s had “no opinion” of him. The child molestation accusations have, through the decade, been a further catalyst for the haters to detest him even more, and the fans to rally in his side and vouch for his innocence.

MJ’s had his childhood stolen away from him because of his celebrity status. In an effort to relive his childhood, and be forever young, he created the Neverland ranch, a magical land with a theme park and tours , almost like a mini-Disneyland. In all his albums, he has at least one song dedicated to the plight of children in the world, or making this world a better place. While there was “Main in the Mirror” in the album Bad, there was “Heal the world” in Dangerous, “Earth Song”, “Childhood”, and “Little Susie” in HIStory , and finally “Lost children” in his last album, Invincible.

It is unfathomable for MJ’s fans including myself, who have taken the time to read his lyrics, hear his songs, and follow his charity, to even dream that MJ could be such a cold-blooded hypocrite and have molested little children. It is a shame that people judge others by the way they look, and not take time to try and learn more. So what if he was black, and is now white ? So what if he’s had plastic surgery on his nose?

When a father sleeps with his little kids on his bed, do people stone his house and claim that he’s had inappropriate contact with his kids? No, it doesn’t even cross one’s mind. That’s the way it’s been for Michael. In his world of innocence with little kids, the adults of the world have let him down.

I know that the people who were prejudiced enough to label him a molester even before the beginning of the trial still believe he’s guilty .. and will continue to hate him as they did before. I cannot comment if he has or hasn’t molested any children, for proving such a case would be extremely difficult.

However, I conclude that regardless of the verdict, in the case of Michael Jackson, the good old saying “Innocent till proven Guilty” was not only blatantly ignored, but turned the other way round into “Guilty till, and even beyond, being proved innocent” .
