    I think I'm just taking a slightly different view because after last year, I'm glad that a publication like the Guardian is saying *anything remotely positive* about MJ's music, even if the comments on the music are laced with 'allegation' references.

    My different take on this is that anyone who likes MJ's music 'casually', will probably read the article and realise that (despite LN) this writer accepts that MJ's music is not 'media- / public opinion-cancelled'. And 'haters' will read that too, and maybe accept the fact - and hopefully stop complaining to radio stations/ DJ's etc when his music is played.

    And very importantly on social media if anyone says 'yes, but *the allegations*', articles like these give fans a chance to respond and give more information to show that LN was indeed trash. And so by very small 'baby steps', fans can push back, minute by minute and day by day. Like a glacier, the sheer relentlessness and weight of fan's opinion (backed by evidence and by sharing important information hidden by the media) will (and is already) carrying the truth to a wider audience.

    So while I can thoroughly disagree with the way an article like this (in the Guardian) is written, I'm content to use it as a platform from which to engage with people who may not be members of the fan community on social media, and who need to see the real truth. (Even if they don't like that truth).

    (Edited to add...And as a general point, anyone who likes a particular song usually finds it hard to dislike the singer. A love of MJ's music is the surest route to a curiosity about and a love for the true MJ himself).
    To me it's just them admitting defeat on the "cancel MJ's music" field and moving on to plan B. Now you're graciously allowed to listen to his music without having to justify yourself to the public (thanks Guardian), but slow down there, it doesn't mean he's, like, innocent and we were wrong on the whole cancelling thing. Just listen to the dance man's songs and don't think about them too much. Accept our, I mean the public's verdict on him as a human, and ignore those crazies with their court transcripts, dates and stuff. We therefore absolve you of any guilt and lift the obligation to dedicate time and effort needed to form your own opinion.

    ^ Thanks for these posts. That’s what I was trying to say.

    It’s a new way of trying to put MJ “back in his place” as a song and dance man. Be extremely careful with these people. They’re more dangerous than the obvious liars we had to deal with last year.

    Just quoting from an article here - for 'Irony' re. HBO....
    What happened to Black justice where MJ is concerned? There are more ways of 'killing' a man than kneeling on his neck.

    Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, HBO and Other Hollywood Players Take a Stand in Support of Black Lives Matter Movement Amid George Floyd Protests

    A number of other entertainment brands have followed suit on Saturday night, as protests gained momentum throughout the nation. HBO, HBO Max, TBS, TNT all changed their Twitter handles to #BlackLivesMatter and posted statements of support.


    #BlackLivesMatter

    @HBO
    “Neither love nor terror makes one blind: indifference makes one blind.” — James Baldwin

    We stand with our Black colleagues, employees, fans, actors, storytellers — and all affected by senseless violence. #BlackLivesMatter

    Everything is just a self-publicity campaign to these two grifters (Robson's blog and Safechuck's insta. today). Quoted for irony.....

    I see that TDCAU didn't make it on to the Spotify 'Black Lives Matter' Playlist. I wonder why not.... (It includes Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Bob Marley, Nina Simone etc, so it's not related to new songs vs old). John Legend made the cut though.
