Youth and Civil Rights Leaders Call on Jackson Memorial Ticket Winners to Give to Jackson Supported Causes


Leaders Will Announce the Organizations That Jackson Urged Donations For


A broad coalition of youth and civil rights leaders will publicly call on Jackson Memorial Ticket winners to donate to the list of needy organizations and social causes that Michael Jackson supported during his career. Jackson had an all consuming passion to aid and support programs and organizations that furthered human betterment. Toward that end Jackson gave tens of millions of dollars to social and children’s causes and charities.

“Jackson Memorial ticket holders can show their appreciation of Jackson’s monumental humanitarian work,” says Hutchinson, “By donating to the specific causes that Jackson held near and dear. This will be the best and most fitting way to celebrate and pay homage to the humanitarian spirit of giving and help that Jackson dedicated his life too.”

Here's some news for you, Earl: Obama IS a socialist. The people are waking up and realizing it. Don't you think it's high time you did as well?

Not only is he a Socialist, but he is a Racist also. I wish you LIBS would quit your bitchin. We had 8 years of some of the most vile things said about our POTUS. So please shut up, because we never heard you ONCE complaining about the things said against Bush.

You sir are a hypocrite !! I'll treat YOUR President with the SAME respect YOU showed MINE. You and your ilk used Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals" to get that Socialist elected, we will use the same methods to get him kicked out of office. You were great teachers, thanks for the lesson !!!

I dont' recall you speaking out against the vile portrayals of such people as President Bush, or Governor Sarah Palin. Could it be that you, and your ilk, find it just fine to lambast certain groups of people but not others? Wait a minute; isn't that prejudiced? Biased? Hypocritical? You see, sir, you must either speak out against ALL such vile portrayals, or NONE. As soon as you begin to take such programs as Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show, with then host Jay Leno, and others who make folly of vilifying those who are conservative, then "we" will be happy to listen to your outrage. Not until then though, you may be sure.
