However, a number of Michael Jackson fans are upset that he wasn’t included.
One person tweeted, “There better be a full-length version of your video that includes Michael Jackson, the greatest entertainer who ever lived, an innocent artist and activist for the Black communities, for the innocent, for justice, for equality, for the entire planet.”
What a joke! Black history without Michael Jackson? There is no black history without the blackman who is known in the most remote parts of the planet! Pathetic this is!
