When Denver's Josh Gaffga, left, was growing up, he and his brothers put on "Thriller" lip-sync shows for neighborhood kids while wearing their vintage Michael Jackson jackets.

You claim to be African-American, yet you hate own your own people?
You are a disgrace, period.

Go back to being a slave. You have the proper mentality for that. Forget about what sacrifices were made so that you could be free, and have any semblance of equality.

Does the term "uncle tom black" have any meaning to you?
Or how about "aunt tom black"?
How about "a black sell out"?

Martin Luther King Jr. died so that we could have people like Michael Jackson. You insult Michael Jackson, then you insult the African-American struggle to overcome racial bigotry. You insult all your fore fathers who were raped, butchered, falsely accused, hanged, and all the rest of the horrible atrocities again African Americans in this country.

And, you have the gall to question my allegiance to my people?

where's that gay guy gone? He didn't come back here once I showed him that a white person can look like Planet of the apes. Must be ahsamed because I showed him up to be a racist who thinks black people look like monkeys. What a horrible way for a black person to think. He is so racist against his own people that he has made me feel sick and now he's on some other discussion trying to tell me to think about what race is. I know what it isn't and that's about human beings looking like animals.

1983, I was 6 years old that time, It`s almost midnight..my parents go to the Party and I remember I was sitting alone in the kitchen when I saw Thriller Video on TV.

That was the most Incredible Music Video I`ve ever seen in my life.
That moment happen almost 30 years ago..but it feels like it was yesterday.

I was so lucky to be alived in the same era with the Most Incredible Singer of All Time.

Michael Jackson's Thriller has been surpassed in total sales by The Eagles Greatest Hits and is the only one best selling albums he has in The Top 25 Albums Of Time list. His tarnished legacy has been reduced to a long list of low selling post-death compact discs of Sony remixes and demos that are getting zero radio play. People have moved on to hip hop, modern dance club pop artists of the new generation of youth. Michael Jackson is very old school and is rapid fading into the past as the dead tabloid character, "Wacko Jacko" that died nude in his bed full a feces, slobbering to his doctor to pump him up with drugs to sleep. A disgraceful has been pedophile like Gary Glitter.

Professionalism does not equal 100 percent lip sync on this is it tour or missing rehearsals

Amen to that. His album now turns 31 this year the last day of November. He had a really good imagination and he could envision how to present his own songs and design the whole video and everything. He had talent in abundance. Like all men he was a mixture of positive and negative attributes. So naturally, he wasn't sainted. But he will be ever missed and loved. Cheers!
