For an 84 year old Joe looks sharp and in good health. His musical dynasty's rise to fame will be interesting coming from the perspective of a fourth generation descendant from slaves. It was a very hard road to the top.

All the years of beating the clown with belts and whips kept him strong and healthy. Old Joe keeps bagging those young bimbos.

Most parents and adults were hard on children back in those days. Joe must have done something right for his family to turn out mega rich and famous without crime.

The Jacksons are a very respected music dynasty.

Joe a black man during the time civil rights movement - accepting and taken on responsibilities of supporting 9 kids and a wife. I think that says alot for his character ! Times were tough back then -alot of descrimination. Anytime is tough if your sole supporter of yourself and 10 other people!

Oh really?

On "The Brady Bunch" Mr Brady never beat his kids...

The show was on between 1969-1974. You act if it were the dark ages.

Parents should never beat their children.

Papa Joe mentally ruined Michael for life and you respect him?

I've read that, but in the day..."The Brady Bunch" was a family show.

No one knew about what was going on behind the scenes with the kids.

Robert Reed was in the closet and was gay in real life.

I had absolutely no clue about his personal life growing up.

But none of those kids claim that he abused them or did anything.

The actors personal lives had nothing to do with the show itself.

It had a good message and a lot of kids grew up watching it.

What does it have to do with Joe Jackson beating his kids?

Especially, Michael who was treated like shit and beaten to perform.

The show was a great escape from reality. It was a bit like what Bollywood movies are to Indians. A fantazy. Wake up Mr Gullible.

I admire Joe because he is very grounded.

Very much like fake Jackson family was a myth, right?

Papa Joe never had to beat Michael for him to achieve stardom.

He never even told Michael that he loved him.

There is a reason Michael left the bastard out of his will, you know.

Besides, Mr Brady didn't beat his kids on the show.

What's your point?

Not all parents beat their kids in the 60's and 70's.

It wasn't the dark ages.

Joe Jackson wasn't a very good father to The Jackson kids, was he?

Of course, Michael got it worse than the others. MJ said that he did.

Why are you making excuses for Joe Jackson? He's a low life animal.

Joe Jackson is a sick bastard.

I'd admire Michael before I'd admire that low life father of his.

He really did a lot of damage to MJ in which he never recovered.

Sorry, Papa Joe and Mama Jacky are the source of what went wrong.

They treated Michael like he was a slave to make them endless money.

Even in death, they want to make more out of him. Some parents...

Unforturely, the whole Jackson clan are the same.

A lot of teachers and parents beat kids during the 60's and 70's. It was accepted behaviour. Joe Jackson did his best for his family. MJ left his will for his children. It is rare for children to leave wills to their parents because they aren't meant to die before their parents.

The Jackson 5 were a better message to the public than the Brady Bunch because they were a real family.

I was disciplined by my father by spanking paddle or belt. I couldnt see myself doing that if I had kids though.I also had teacher who told me to turn around and not look out window~so then I was looking out window again and teacher came over and grabbed me by my hair lifted me up and spun me around! That teacher was a mean S.O.B

It was his choice to have nine kids. It doesn't mean you beat them.

I have no respect for Joe Jackson.

Bull.

MJ did the right thing leaving some for his children.

Mama Jacky was in the will. MJ knew she'd still be alive to collect?

I understand what you are saying and I would say they had a hard time. I just have one question- Why would a loving father not want his children to call him daddy? I never have understood that one. I am sure he supported the family.But, I am sure the children never went out and performed for free. So, I would say they to helped support the family. No matter how hard someone has it that does not give them the right to beat their children. You would think a loving father would be proud for his children to call him daddy. I wonder why he never told his story when Michael was alive?

Joe Jackson has right to tell his story and defend himself against all attacks against his character.
