Sharpton told the crowd that Jackson "broke down race barriers." He and Director Spike Lee urged the audience to revel in Jackson accomplishments and disregard what they characterized as negative news coverage of the star.
"Michael made young men and women all over the world imitate us," Sharpton said. "Before Michael, we were limited and ghettoized. But Michael put on a colorful military outfit, he pulled his pants up, he put on the one glove, and he smashed the barriers of segregated music."
Sharpton then showed his own colorful dance moves to the crowd, dancing up a storm with Lee, DJ Chub Rock, and another woman while Jackson's music blared. -CBS 2 News This Morning
I was wrong. It looks like Michael Jackson was the real Chocolate Jesus the whole time. Now that he has passed, his freakish behavior will be crucified through sycophant fan worship. Michael Jackson will rise again, as a black Nubian prince... A Pharaoh.
A leader of his people.
Before there was Obama. Before there was Tiger and Oprah. There was Michael Jackson. The first man to cross-us-over to... Never Never Land.

"Shade, or even suppress..."
Holy pot calling the kettle black, Batman! Holy throwing stones at glass houses, Robin! Holy hypocrisy and double standard, lefties!
Oh well, a top Republican senator has ordered an investigation into the Environmental Protection Agency's alleged suppression of the report that questioned the science behind global warming.
I wonder? Will the Obama administration be... transparent?
