Empress,
From what I understand, MJ had deep problems with his self-image because of years of vicious mistreatment and criticism by his father. These were deep psychological scars with which I can very acutely empathize. People who have imputed to him some dislike of his color or African features have failed to consider & understand how deeply hurt the man was by his father's ridicule. He was trying to run away from an image that his father mocked in an effort to pursue (in futility) an essential paternal approval that was missing from his life. Very sad (i.e., having multiple plastic surgeries to try to become someone his father would accept & to distance himself from a self-image he felt was partially responsible for his father's rejection), but definitely nothing to do with some personal aesthetic rejection of African in favor of Caucasian -- I think that's just something the public projected onto him speculatively because of his fame & prominence. Ironically, just one more way in which MJ, despite his incredible talent and wealth, was the victim of a tragic life.
While I was never an MJ fan, I became awed at his one-of-a-kind talent & creativity as an all-around entertainer near the very end of his life when a family relation of mine, who tutored MJ in specialized dancing, recommended that I take another look at his unique talent. I also felt that his dedication to charitable causes was admirable.

PEACE & INITY

My mother was a fan of MJ and Ini do recall her saying that his father was not good to him. A sad story and goes to show money and fame can't buy happiness. Ini would not deny his talent.
Love and Ini ty :)

"goes to show money and fame can't buy happiness"

Ain't that the Truth! But Babylon's still got a whole bunch of people chained up thinking that they can....

Couldn't get me to trade JAH LOVE for any pile of gold no matter how big

Jah love protect us.

Beautiful, positive vibrations. Empress. Thanks for that.

I just came back from borrowing some Coca-cola from my neighbor to see if it will help my wife's upset stomach (a couple of swigs of coke for an upset stomach is an old family remedy). He grabbed a coke, gave it to me and said "hope she feels better". As I walked back home it occurred to me that such simple actions of one person instinctively helping another is how we bring down Babylon in our own lives ever day. Also with kind words such as yours here.

JAH LOVE

The Irie vibes and feeling contentment within the fullness of Jah light is contrary to what Babylon wants, it depends on a dissatisfaction that breeds constant want and a certain emptiness. 🙌;;💟;;
InI pray for the Sistren and hope she has found relief. Ini can't touch soda, prefer a ginger tea for the belly ailments, but if it works it works! Praise Jah 👑;;
Positive vibrations
Jah love

She got better. Thanks, sister. The coke didn't help, so she ended up drinking some tea brewed with leaves from a local tree here (i don't know the name). Some traditional, natural cure (they have a lot of those here). It did the trick.

PRAISE JAH
