America at Large

The Jackson Theory

They have been the African-American versions of the Kennedy family in America for years, and now, with the fate of one of it's most famous family members in the hands of jurors; a disturbing end is near.

You're probably wondering why is this a segment in America At Large: He's a part of American History.

Michael Jackson - The "King of Pop" has been in the headlines for months now in regard to alleged molestation charges and others. His career is at a state that can only be described as a "sideshow." He's becoming the Mike Tyson of music, only being used to bring in whatever money he can. His music, overshadowed with the contradictions of his life, and a generation that laughs at his dance moves.

His maintaining of respect in the music industry - Let's see, he performed music from R. Kelly, who would later end up in court himself for alleged indecent liberties with a minor ... the luck.

This is so unfortunate, and I would hate to be on that jury. Who will be the person to be part of history that names, "The people who brought down the King of Pop."

Let's see: When the cameras go away, the book deals are done, and security goes away. You're alone ... this jury will have a battle between convictions, facts, and reality.

The convictions: If he did it beyond a reasonable doubt, send him to jail.

The facts: IF the evidence shows beyond a reasonable doubt that he is a sexual offender, put him in jail.

The reality: Sooner or later, you're going to get pointed out as "the person that put Michael in jail."

I know they have to be thinking about it.

Then you gotta look at everything Michael has not only done for the U.S. but for the World. Will his work be shadowed in doubt now? Will everything he has done involving children be left to history books as ploys for sexual misconduct?

Unfortunate.

But what do I think? Nah, I don't think he did it. I cannot see a person like Michael doing that. Call me a fool, but I see a person that has been carried throughout life continuously trying to catch up with everyone else - mentally.

But if he did, I'm gonna call it down the middle: Confined to Neverland Ranch not to be released for 10 years w/Maximum Security. Will have the opportunity to still make music (The rappers do it all the time in prison).

Or to a maximum security prison, not to be mixed in with the population.

If found innocent, he will spend the rest of his life trying to regain his royalty in music.

I've been a Michael Jackson fan since my mother first played the "Thriller" record for me. And after I heard his previous music, hook line and sinker.

Michael's music, unlike the music we have today, had the thought of hope and love. Though some of our artists maintain these standards, they're will never be another Michael Jackson.

So if this is the end, Thanks Michael, thanks for the good times.

If it isn't - Well, I'll be waiting for the next album to drop.

I am not bitter, are you interested? Email me at navjoallen@yahoo.com and I'll be sure to reply in my next column. Good or bad, I welcome it all.
