Im gonna tell you somethin coming from someone who lives in the South. People are prejudice. No matter how much they want to act like they are not, i think naturally we all are in some way. Not saying that people didnt like him white for racists reasons but that could be a possibility.
When his skin began to lighte thats when people began to think of him as being "odd" like "OOh michael jackson wants to be a white guy hes weird and stuff he bleaches his skin" blah blah blah but what people failed to do was accept him for who he was-no matter what his skin color-and appreciate him for bringing so many good things and changes to the world of music. People will forever be prejudice and judgemental and MJ had to get probably the worst of it in his lifetime. I can imagine him, his poor soul, wondering WHY people stayed judging him for stuff he couldnt help. Whether he had vitiligo or purposely bleached his skin is no one's business. We should judge him based on who he is as a person, his accompishments, and his humanitarianism. But of course not everyone out there is like us fans who love him for him. no matter what color his skin.
first of all he is not white he is still black he just has vitiligo and it gets worst in the 2000's and i think people started to not like him before the 2000's they are just hater's " haters are confused admires"
Maybe because they don't like the way he looked or acted? I personally don't see anything wrong with him in the 2000s, I still think he was a genuine, amazing guy. It's all their choice though, it doesn't bother me.
I liked him either way. The only thing that truly matters was the he was still Michael. Most ignorant people refuse to get past that. He was still a human being and the one that we will always love and miss.
I think people thought Michael got a bit weird,lots of my family thought that he 'bleached' his skin,but it was actually because of his skin disorder.But lots of people thought that hes black,-so people automatically thought that he didnt want to be black and started hating him. And also again for the court charges in 2003,the people all believed in what the media was saying,because apparantly its there 'gospel',its so supid though.
His fans know the real him,i know we all love him black and white after all he is the same person nothing changed in that:)xxx
Because they believe that he didn't like his skin color and wanted to change it or any fuck...and they don't like his nouse! i think these people are stupid!they judge him before they know him...they only look at his outside okay maybe he was not sooo goodlooking in 2000s but he was still the same person!!
i love him all the way & he looked always perfect!!!
I think a lot of people dont like him or think he was weird in the 2000s cuz #1 the media, they put all this crap out talking bad about him, calling him weird and saying he was trying to turn his skin white (the same gossip sites, news channels & people had the nerve to say "its a big loss" and "he was amazing" and "we'll miss him" after he passed). And also sadly his appearance made some people turn their backs on him, for some people he wasnt the same Mike who they grew up watching in Thriller or during the 70s, when Mike was 'the best he ever was' so they stopped liking him. Some people think he was just going crazy and because of that everything said about him was believed... I was born in 92 and the Michael Jackson I saw on TV was when his vitiligo had changed him a lot, like in Jam & Scream, but his skin has never bothered me, I never wondered. I always knew he was Michael Jackson when I watched Thriller or BoW or You Rock My World or any video... He was all the same amazing singer & dancer to me.. also it hurts me to even type this but some people think he looked 'hideous' in the 2000s because the change from his younger days to the "now" looked so dramatic, so when they looked on the outside they assumed what was happening on the inside... I think he was gorgeous and beautiful his whole life... If people looked on the inside first maybe theyd realize too.. I mean everyone has opinions but Ive never considered him ugly or bad looking :/ im not saying every adult or every person feels that way or whatever.. im just saying, some people do feel that way. I feel he was ALWAYS Michael Jackson no matter how he looked or how old he was
