and thriller era

“Michael Jackson wanted to be white.” “He bleached his skin.”
Bet.👌🏾 His autopsy report confirms he had vitiligo, a skin disease that strips the skin of its pigment, and there are plenty of photos where you can see his skin patching as early as his childhood. Here’s one pic from the Bad era (1987-1992). Even if MJ bleached his skin, he more than likely did it to even out his new skin tone. I wouldn’t even be mad at that. Michael Jackson was a proud Black man. Throughout his music, he filled those dance rhythms and music videos with political charged lyrics and visual messages. After all, it’s no coincidence that at the end of the “Black or White” video, he turned into a Black Panther.
