  1. I am glad our black magazines have decided to come out with a commemorative issue on the King of Pop. Other special issues on MJ have been produced with mistakes and with pics of the wrong people. I am waiting patiently for Ebony’s issue because they will show Michael in all his glory and with people who truly knew him with respect and love! Not with malice and hate and calling him a “freak”. I must admit, I previously bought two issues before with Michael in them for 9.00 dollars each including Rolling Stone’s issue. I felt they were nothing more than a waste of money because of the constant use of the term “freak” and using pictures to degrade him instead of praising him for his influence on pop culture. Negative words and misinformation all done in a haste to make a fast buck to sell magazines. With Ebony I hope we as black people and other races will learn the truth about Michael Jackson through his humble beginnings to the superstar icon he has become known for and loved by fans. No one will ever replace him. RIP Michael I love you. “With a child’s heart”
