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
