New Video: Michael Jackson – ‘They Don’t Care About Us (2020)’

Published: Sunday 30th Aug 2020 by Sam

In commemoration of Michael Jackson‘s 62nd birthday, the singer’s estate teamed with Spike Lee to unleash a new version of the King of Pop’s ‘They Don’t Care About Us’ music video.

Timely, in light of the rifeness of social injustice, the refreshed version of the visual spotlights the Black Lives Matter movement and more.

A life long philanthropist and social activist, Jackson used his platform to propagate the need for equality. Hence, it’s fitting that said sentiments are being continued posthumously.

Speaking on the release, Lee (who directed the 1995 original) said:

“Great Protest Songs Can’t Get Old, Stale Or Nonrelevant Because The Struggle Still Continues. That’s Why THEY DON’T REALLY CARE ABOUT US IS The Anthem During This Chaotic, Pandemic World We Are All Living In. To Celebrate Michael Jackson’s Born Day, We Have Made The THEY DON’T REALLY CARE ABOUT US 2020 Short Film To Continue The Struggle For Equality For All. That’s The Truth, Ruth. Be Safe.”

    MJ was too white in that video tho. Its pretty awkward and ironic for representing BLM

      How is it awkward when he was still a black man regardless of his skin condition? Idiot.

    MJ wanted to be white so bad

    If you feel like the original message has similarities with today’s BLM movement, that’s fine, but please don’t go and make videos that interpolate Michael’s work with BLM. Professional athletes are on TV literally crying about how tired they are from police involved shootings, but they never once took a knee and refused to play on any day that black lives were lost to violent acts perpetrated by other blacks. Chicago reached more than 400 homicides over the summer, scores of black lives lost, while athletes everywhere were shouting “Let us play!” Too many of us only want to stop things and print t-shirts to march in when a white man is holding the gun. The result for all of us, unfortunately, is that BLM is ensuring Trump’s win in November.

        He definitely will win. No one expected him to last time either.
