    Default They Don't Care About Us

    Do any of you have the original release of the History album on CD or Cassette, before the controversy about that one line in They Don't Care About Us, which forced Michael Jackson to go back in the studio and redo it? If I remember correctly, Jackson had all remaining unsold copies of the History album pulled out of record stores everywhere and returned to the supplier, and then the History album got re-released with an edited They Don't Care About Us.

    What do you think? Do you think Michael Jackson should have stood his ground, kept the song and album as is, and maintained that it wasn't racist, and that he was talking about himself as the victim, as he told Diane Sawyer? Legally, he didn't have to do anything. There is fredom of speech. The album would have still been in stores the way it is and selling. They could have put a parental advisory sticker on it I think.

    Would it have effected the rest of his career if he had not made the changes?
