To honor the memory of the "black" and the life of George Floyd, Prince Michael Joseph Jackson borrowed iconic words from his father Michael Jackson's song "They Don't Care About Us."
Michael Joseph Jackson, 23, didn't have to look far to find inspiring words to support the Black Lives Matter movement. "Beat me … hate me … You can never break me." - words from a famous song by his father Michael Jackson, "the late pop icon's son said on Instagram, quoting his father's 1995 anti-racist ode" They don't care about us. However, the borrowed lines ended there, because the Prince wanted to "speak from the heart" to his almost 700,000 subscribers after the death of George Floyd, which the Prince shared under the photo. The death of an unarmed black unarmed George led to the indictment of four fired Minneapolis police officers, one of whom - Derek Choven. The white officer who pinned George to his neck with his knee is now charged with second-degree murder.
“We wouldn't be here without black culture. Black culture is power. Black culture is persistence. Black culture is resilience. Black culture is a call for change,”wrote the prince under the signature to the painting. For the prince, "change" is not about difficult negotiations, but about effectively eliminating systematic racism. “No more promises from politicians. No more talking. No more cycles of racism, abuse and pain,”he continued. “The system must listen to the cries of the community - now. The system must change forever - now."
Then the prince gave his advice. “The system can do a lot for you, but when you give up, they win. Don't let the system hold you back. Like a poet Dylan Thomas once wrote: "Do not fall into a good night." Whatever they throw at us, let's support each other and don't let us break. For now, the best way to heal and move forward is to help each other. We will always be stronger together,”he wrote. You can read his final thoughts above.
