Michael Jackson

This month’s song and artist will be a nostalgic step back in time to celebrate our wonderful endless diversity as one species on this pale blue-dot we’ve always called home… sung by one of music’s most creative, boundary-breaking late artist.
There are two play modes:  the long YouTube version or the non-video just audio short version right below.

I took my baby on a Saturday bang
Boy is that girl with you
Yes we’re one and the same

Now I believe in miracles
And a miracle has happened tonight

But, if you’re thinkin’ about my baby
It don’t matter if you’re black or white

They print my message in the Saturday Sun
I had to tell them I ain’t second to none

(Get up and dance!)

And I told about equality and it’s true
Either you’re wrong or you’re right

But, if you’re thinkin’ about my baby
It don’t matter if you’re black or white

I am tired of this devil
I am tired of this stuff
I am tired of this business
Sew when the going gets rough
I ain’t scared of your brother
I ain’ts scared of no sheets
I ain’t scared of nobody
Girl when the goin’ gets mean

Protection
For gangs, clubs, and nations
Causing grief in human relations
It’s a turf war on a global scale
I’d rather hear both sides of the tale
See, it’s not about races
Just places
Faces
Where your blood comes from
Is were your space is
I’ve seen the bright get duller
I’m not going to spend my life being a color (mic drop)

Don’t tell me you agree with me
When I saw you kicking dirt in my eye

But, if you’re thinkin’ about my baby
It don’t matter if you’re black or white

I said if you’re thinkin’ of being my baby
It don’t matter if you’re black or white

I said if you’re thinkin’ of being my brother
It don’t matter if you’re black or white

Ooh, ooh
Yea, yea, yea now
Ooh, ooh
Yea, yea, yea now

Black or White by Michael Jackson, my epic February 2019 artist and song.
