    Thumbs up from me.

    Yes, it’s a bit disappointing that he didn’t use film footage, but we can’t know the reasons for this. I like the edit. I hope it goes viral and inspires the protests worldwide.

    And an unexpectedly bold move on the part of the Estate, I must say.

    Spike understands the message of TDCAU as much as Michael. This new video delivers that message to a modern audience as the old ones did back in the 90's.


    Great video and thank you Spike,

    Great video and thank you Spike,
    I fully agree!

    Quality issues aside with some of the shots, I really enjoyed this new take on an old video. Am I right in saying some of the footage of Michael at the end is previously unseen?

    This time even if Spike haven't used the film source the video quality is pretty good anyway.

    It seems to be a touch out of sync here and there. Wasn’t sure about this at first, but I noticed it the second time around.

    But anyway, the message gets through, and I think the news footage that Spike chose is perfect.

    I don't know if officially connecting Michael Jackson's short films to the BLM movement is a good idea. This is getting too political. To be honest, I don't know if Michael would even support the BLM movement if he were still alive.

    Black Lives Matter is a global human rights movement. I’m sure Michael would support this, along with Spike Lee, Rev. Al Sharpton, Martin Luther King III, and Bernice King – to name just a few.

    What MJ has been through and how he has been mistreated and falsely accused, yes he would.

    Why wouldn’t a proud BLACK MAN support a movement that brings awareness to INJUSTICES of black people. Let’s not ever forget that Michael was born a black man and died a black man. He was against racism and bigotry. The way he was treated was based on jealousy and RACISM and that’s the bottomline.

    Equality is not political—unless fascism is involved—it's just basic human decency. Why would Michael oppose a movement that wants equal rights and treatment, for anyone, let alone his own race?

    I think Spike Lee did a good job with the video and I commend the Estate for endorsing it.
