Trivia

The video received controversy for its final four minutes, in which Jackson performs suggestive dance moves (including grabbing his crotch and unzipping his pants) and breaks windows. He apologized for the video. See more »

Goofs

When Michael is dancing with the lady in the middle of the street, he holds a sheet from a newspaper. He then scrunches it into a ball and throws it away. It blows away, but then the newspaper suddenly appears right by his foot again, and is now flat and intact. Then in the next shot it has vanished again. See more »

Man, do I remember the controversy
20 October 2004 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

I remember, I was like 7 years old when this came out. I've been a Michael Jackson fan since I could crawl. So naturally my mom and I watched this together when it was first aired on ABC. When the ending of Michael's solo dance came, I looked at my mom and she had this look of shock on her face. I didn't get why. I now watch the video and get it.

Although "Black or White" isn't one of my favorite MJ songs, it was a very creative video. I will admit that. And it was one heck of a risk for Michael. I give him a lot of props for what he has done. So, for the famous "Black or White"...

9/10
