What Michael Jackson Taught Me

Being a black bloke, and in middle age, I remember when I started going off Michael Jackson, some years after Thriller, after the Bad album came out. Even with Thriller his musical style had changed, going from the African-American soul music we expected like in Off The Wall, to a harder-edged rock, which to seemed to made for its appeal to whites. It wasn't the stuff I as a black person expected, and he has also began to appear tough, challenging and snarling and Bad in his music and videos, as the album name suggests.
