The latest example is the woman pictured below, one Dr. Tricia Rose, whose entire body of scholarship is about blacks and women in the 20th century.
As chair of the university’s Department of Africana Studies (as opposed to “African?”), she caught the attention of the loony lefties who run MSNBC, and they can’t get enough of her explanation of Michael Jackson. Not content to call this pedophilic self-mutilating drug addicted hermit freakazoid a “hero,” she said to call Michael Jackson just a popular entertainer is like calling Jesus a carpenter.
Christian readers – please let Dr. Rose know what you think about that at Tricia_Rose@brown.edu
Amusingly, she also spoke of his influence on modern stars like girlfriend-abuser Chris Brown and accused (and acquitted) child rapist R. Kelly, who got off, so to speak, only because a jury couldn’t tell whether the person he was videotaped was actually 15.
And don’t forget Stevie Wonder and all the other stars in the entertainment firmament who publicly wept at the loss of a person they could have saved at any moment by being his friend before he died.
