◆Michael Jackson Memorial Service - Rev. Al Sharpton

Michael Jackson Memorial Service - Rev. Al Sharpton


All over the world today people are gathered in love viduals to celebrate the life of a man that taught the world how to love.


People may be wondering why there’s such an emotional outburst. But you would have to understand the journey of Michael to understand what he meant to all of us. For these that sit here as the Jackson family - a mother and father with nine children that rose from a working class family in Gary, Indiana - they had nothing but a dream.


No one believed in those days that this kind of dream could come true, but they kept on believing and Michael never let the world turn him around from his dreams. I first met Michael around the 1970 Black Expo, Chicago, Illinois. Rev. Jesse Jackson, who stood by this family till now, and from that day as a cute kid to this moment, he never gave up dreaming. It was that dream that changed culture all over the world. When Michael started, it was a different world. But because Michael kept going, because he didn’t accept limitations, because he refused to let people decide his boundaries, he opened up the whole world.


In the music world, he put on one glove, pulled his pants up and broke down the color curtain where now our videos are shown and magazines put us on the cover. It was Michael Jackson that brought Blacks and Whites and Asians and Latinos together. It was Michael Jackson that made us sing, “We are the World” and feed the hungry long before Live Aid.


Because Michael Jackson kept going, he created a comfort level where people that felt they were separate became interconnected with his music. And it was that comfort level that kids from Japan and Ghana and France and Iowa and Pennsylvania got comfortable enough with each other until later it wasn’t strange to us to watch Oprah on television. It wasn’t strange to watch Tiger Woods golf. Those young kids grew up from being teenage, comfortable fans of Michael to being 40 years old and being comfortable to vote for a person of color to be the President of the United States of America.


Michael did that. Michael made us love each other. Michael taught us to stand with each other. There are those that like to dig around mess. But millions around the world, we’re going to uphold his message. It’s not about mess, but it’s about his love message. As you climb up steep mountains, sometimes you scar your knee; sometimes you break your skin. But don’t focus on the scars, focus on the journey. Michael beat ‘em, Michael rose to the top. He out-sang his cynics, he out-danced his doubters; he out-performed the pessimists. Every time he got knocked down, he got back up. Every time you counted him out, he came back in. Michael never stopped. Michael never stopped. Michael never stopped.


I want to say to Mrs. Jackson and Joe Jackson, his sisters and brothers: We thank you for giving us someone that taught us love; someone who taught us hope. We want to thank you because we know it was your dream too.


We know that your heart is broken. I know you have some comfort from the letter from the President of the United States and Nelson Mandela. But this was your child. This was your brother. This was your brother. This was your cousin. Nothing will fill your hearts’ lost. But I hope the love that people are showing will make you know he didn’t live in vain. I want his three children to know: Wasn’t nothing strange about your Daddy. It was strange what your Daddy had to deal with. But he dealt with it…He dealt with it anyway. He dealt with it for us.


So, some came today, Mrs. Jackson, to say goodbye to Michael. I came to say, thank you. Thank you because you never stopped, thank you because you never gave up, thank you because you never gave out, thank you because you tore down our divisions. Thank you because you eradicated barriers. Thank you because you gave us hope. Thank you Michael. Thank you Michael. Thank you Michael!

◆マイケルの手袋の始まり(証言)

マイケルの友人で有名な女優のCicely Tysonは、2009年にCNNでDon Lemon に次のように語りました。

彼女は1980年代にマイケルと同じファッションデザイナーを使っていました。あるとき、そのデザイナーが突然に彼女に言いました。「マイケルのためにこの手袋を作っているんだ」マイケルは白斑を発病していて、それは手から始まりました。手袋は白斑を隠すためでした。そうやってあの手袋は始まったのです。彼女は、デザイナーが手袋を作っているときその場にいたので、噂なんかじゃないと語っています。

On july 9, 2009, a famous American black actress Cicely Tyson, a friend of Jackson's, said the two [Cicely & Michael] shared a fashion designer in the 1980s.
"All of a sudden, he said, 'I'm doing this glove for Michael,'" she said. "Michael was beginning to develop the vitiligo and it started on his hand. The glove was to cover the vitiligo; that's how that glove came into being." The glove design and reason for it were not just hearsay for Tyson, she said. "I was there when he was creating it," she told CNN's Don Lemon.

◆Patrick Treacy on Michael Jackson on June 22, 2011

Patrick Treacy, Irish doctor, Michael Jackson's friend, said:

アイルランドでマイケルと親しくしていたDr.パトリックが、6月22日にマイケルの母校であるあのハリウッドのガードナー・スクールで感動的なスピーチをしました:

マイケルは飢えた子どもたちのために悲しんでいましたが、アメリカ人がマイケルに対する不正義に無関心であったことにも同様に悲しんでいました。(注: 2005年のまったくの冤罪による裁判と、その完全無罪判決後にもマスコミが相変わらず嘘を垂れ流して反省をみせなかったことなど)

マイケルはある時期、わたしの故郷・アイルランドで亡命者のように寂しく暮らしていました。困っている人々のためにあれほど尽くした彼自身があのような目に遭うとはなんという皮肉でしょうか。彼はこのことを時にはわたしと話し合いましたが、たいていのときは話したがりませんでした。わたしも、彼の想像を絶する苦しい思い出については、触れないようにしていました。

'Michael Jackson felt that pain, not just for for the hungry children, but for himself when the people of America remained indifferent to the injustice that was perpetrated upon him making him a virtual prisoner in his own land, causing hi...m to flee to the Middle East and eventually find solitude in Ireland, my home. What an irony that someone who cared so much about the rest of humanity was rejected by his own. It was a pain he felt deeply and one that on occasion he discussed with me, but mostly he did not want to talk about it and I never opened those painful memories, being like him exiles beyond the norm'.
