All comments on Jackson spot on...

This new aged black rappin' "celebrity" community disowned Jackson long ago, which led to his early demise and sad misery he must have felt everyday..that drove him to what led to his tragic loss.

Wow Ray, in one sentence you really brought a whole different issue into this, and you're right on the money. I never thought of that. The people grieving that night at the BET Awards may very well be partly grieving for disowning Michael Jackson. They say they loved him, but how much love did they SHOW him in the last 10 to 15 years?
