Question
Hello!! :)

I have about the Black or White music video in school.
I have about the symbolism.
I just wonder what is you opinion about it.
And what does "no more wet backs", "nigger  go home" and "hitler lives" mean? and why does he use it in the video ?

Hope you can answer! <3

Answer
Helene,

I believe that the panther was simply Michael's way of showing his animal side, the kind that wants to growl and lash out at people when angry, whereas he is normally calm and tolerant of people.

As far as the "no more wetbacks" and "nigger go home," and "hitler lives." This is his way of showing his anger for these ideas. He lashes out at these written statements in the video and basically unleashes his frustration toward them.

It's simply all symbolic and his way of demonstrating his frustration with the world and the hate within it.

Jackson, Michael

I can answer just about any Michael Jackson question. I will say this because I've been having problms with it....if you are asking a question like...did michel like popcorn?...unless he said he likes popcorn in an interview or somewhere there is no way to know for sure if he liked popcorn. Some questions are based on opinions and educated guesses. We as mj experts are not psychics who know what no one else knows. Please keep that in mind when asking questions because I have had people give me bad ratings for not having a positive answer to things I couldn't possibly know for sure. Other than that ask away!

Experience

I have been a fan of Michael Jackson for many years and have done extensive research on his life as I am currently finishing a book on him.

Organizations
United States Air Force.

Publications
I have written a book on Michael. It's called "Through a Fan's Eyes: A Journal on Michael Jackson." It is meant to be facts about his life, quotes from fans and has a creative twist. It is just what it's called. The book is full of interesting facts and opinions on controversial topics, including input from fans around the world. The book includes creative writing like poems inspired by Michael and short stories with characters based on his life. It ends with touching farewell messages from fans that we only wish he were alive to read so that he could know just how strongly he is loved.

Education/Credentials
I have self published a Michael Jackson tribute book.
