Transcript: Black or White by Michael Jackson Biographical-Historical Approach to Literary Criticism Michael Jackson grew up under the constant expectation of success, which was very difficult for him. While starting in the Jackson 5, not very many places would let them perform because of their skin color. Furthermore, when they did get gigs, it did not pay very much. Even so, they continued on, and gained fame, but Michael Jackson acquired more fame solo then he did with his brothers. He used is fame to convey posotive messages in songs like "Black or White", and "Beat It", since he grew up in those types of neighborhoods. There are multiple examples to show the same social injustice, which is racism. In the song, the lyrics in the chorus state that "it doesn't matter if you're black or white," which shows how Michael thinks that race shouldn't be a deciding factor in anything. He also states that he "ain't scared of no sheets," which is a direct reference to the KKK, who are known for wearing white sheats on their heads. The morphing faces sequence was a huge deal at the time. Not only did it show that everyone is equal in race and your race doesn't judge you as a person, but it was also a new idea and very expensive. Thanks for listening!

Legacy and influence The King of Pop Transformed the art of music videos Paved the way for modern pop music. Daily Telegraph writer Tom described Jackson as "extremely important" and a "genius" Steve Huey describes Jackson as "an unstoppable juggernaut, possessed of all the skills to dominate the charts seemingly at will: an instantly identifiable voice, eye-popping dance moves, stunning musical versatility and loads of sheer star power" BET described Jackson "as quite simply the greatest entertainer of all time" and someone who "revolutionized the music video and brought dances like the “moonwalk” to the world. Jackson's sound, style, movement and legacy continue to inspire artists of all genres.” Jackson said, "Music has been my outlet, my gift to all of the lovers in this world. Through it, my music, I know I will live forever." Michael Jackson is a black. His skin gradually became white in the past 20 years. Most people probably did not know how it was and guess that he went whitening and bleaching. In fact that he had Vitiligo. Vitiligo patients are very difficult to become white evenly. The question is why Michael Jackson was so good-looking white? we think the most likely way is makeup. [L. T.
