The headline of this article is political. Many Democrats, including me, oppose this resolution. Even Nancy Pelosi will not debate the ammendment.
This is not about an entainer....it is about a "black" entainer and is racist in nature...just like Sheila Jackson Lee. She would hide the fact that he was a pedophile because it is in her own political interest.
After all, she is a "Queen" and a Congresswoman, in her own words.
The black community has many decent hard working heros who deserve the honor much more than Michael Jackson.

i agree and i have to be honest that MJ was less deserving than most to be honored. i could not ever bring myself to celebrate a man who did what he did to children. i mean where is the black community on this and why are they not telling sheila jackson lee to stop acting as if she speaks for all AAs. the "queen" need to get a reality check on life
