    Please Do A Piece on Michael Jackson Hi, I’m writing to you because Last Week Tonight as opposed to other such shows actually cares about issues rather than chasing the headlines. It has been 11 years since Michael Jackson passed away yet to this day what the common consensus is that he is a taboo subject for many. I recall you guys once did a piece on Public Shaming. Michael Jackson was a genius, an abused child. He was strange. He was one of the few major stars from the 80s who came out of the 80s without a heroine addiction. He in his own way did many, Many strange things, but so do most other superstars. And more than others he actually cared. About children, about the earth. About the issues we are discussing to this day. While Icons like Freddie Mercury, Elvis Presley, Prince, Beetles and many more are known for their good works, Michael is known for the something which he has repeatedly been acquitted for. It’s the truth that anyone looking for will find instantly but due to the “where there is smoke there is a fire” narrative, even 11 years after his death, the new media treats him like a criminal. All his trial pages are open for the public to read. He WAS weird. Making a ranch called neverland, hanging out with children. Trusting people he shouldn’t. But I urge you please cover him, hear beyond the noise like you guys often do. The most successful African American Artist of all time was a humble man child, who respected women, loved children and cared about our environment. He was not a heroine junkie, a private man who did not share his disease even all the way back in 1993 even though he was accused of wanting to become a “White Man”. He was eccentric. Hanging out with animals and caring about them. theobjectivestandard.com/2020/02/justice-for-michael-jackson/ This article covers multiple sources, some of which I had read previously. Michael Jackson was a multi talented millionaire pop star, who was not an alcoholic, was a caring father, a filial son, Treated women with respect, cared about the planet and it’s beings. The press that constantly kept DASHING him, had found a way to subvert their guilt. All those years of calling him a “Jacko”, “monkey” and many more hurtful things was justified if he was a paedophile. They NEEDED him to be guilty. Such a man cannot exist in Hollywood. Such public shaming had allowed and to this day allows Michael to be a victim to all this slander. Please do a piece, if not one that exonerates him then one that once and for all cements the fact the Michael Jackson, the greatest pop star, the first African American Idol was a paedophile. Not through unknown sources or flimsy headlines but through concrete proof. A news echoing in a closed chamber will not reach anyone, most fans who what to know the truth know it, other people will read the headlines but not the explanations. It’s about time the general public knows. Please do a piece on Michael, the blatant mistreatment by the media, The systematic racism he faced during his trials. Please don’t let the first African American Singer be remembered for the things he did not do, He was weird, weird enough to annoy Freddie Mercury with Bubbles feedbacks, weird enough to let kids crack raw eggs over Michael Jackson, Weird enough to play water balloons with children. But he was not a paedophile and the world needs to acknowledge that. He was in no way a “Perfect Human” but he tried his best to live right and we should not punish him for doing that. On this year please exonerate this Black man, the Justice System has done it two decades ago, it’s about time everyone else does. Please do a piece on Michael Jackson.

    Want to help save the planet? Here are 6 things every individual can do to save the Earth: 1. Go VEGAN (food, clothes, accessories, toiletries, furniture etc.) 2. Consume products LESS and become an INFORMED consumer. - Don't buy anything new (except if necessary, like medicine or contact lenses). You can buy basically everything USED or make it yourself. - Do your RESEARCH before buying anything. Many products are destroying the environment via the extraction of raw materials, the production process, transportation etc. Also production lines are full of human labor abuses. Do your RESEARCH if you must buy something. Remember, your purchase of a product acts to support that company and everything that went into that product. - If you don't know 100% how a product was made at each and every step, then do NOT buy the product. You could be unknowingly supporting the extinction of orangutans in Indonesia (ex. palm oil) or the destruction of the Amazon Rainforest (ex. beef). No joke. Stop buying products unless you are 100% informed. Don't be selfish. You don't need most products. Buy it used at eBay/Craigslist/Goodwill or make it yourself instead of contributing to the destruction of the planet. - Check if the product has any certifications, such as: RainforestAlliance, FairTrade, RSPO - Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil, USDA Organic etc. - Stop buying via Amazon!!! It has rampant human rights abuses that have been clearly reported on many times, including abuses and neglect during COVID-19. In addition, despite some of its 'climate pledges', Amazon has a terrible negative impact on the environment. Think factories, energy-usages, packing for all of those boxes, carbon emissions for the trucks that deliver them etc. If you buy via Amazon you are supporting human rights abuses and environmental degradation. Do you really need that product? Just buy it used or at least directly form the actual company. Don't be selfish, be responsible. 3. Go plastic and packaging free. Don't buy anything with non-compostable packaging, or that's made of non-environmental material. If you do, make sure it's recyclable and recycle it properly. 4. ADOPT and REDUCE family sizes. Humans have overpopulated the world and are destroying the environment as a result. The human population is almost at 8 billion. We need to intelligently and voluntarily work to get our numbers down to at least half of that. It is a very personal issue, but please consider adopting children instead of creating new children. If having biological children, consider smaller family sizes. - Donate money and/or volunteer at organizations that support women's rights and literacy. On average, women's illiteracy rates are inverse to the number of children they have. I.e. the number of children a woman has decreases as she becomes literate and more educated. Here are some ideas: Room to Read, World Literacy Foundation, Malala Fund, UNICEF, Campaign for Female Education (CAMFED), Afghan Institute of Learning, Invest in Girls, Educate Girls, AGE Africa, Asante Africa Foundation, She’s the First, Forum for African Women Educationalists (FAWE). 5. VOTE and become politically informed. Make sure to stay politically informed and pressure your local, state and national representatives to support issues and legislation that save and protect the environment and species. VOTE during elections. 6. Use only RENEWABLE energy and use LESS of it. - Stop flying unless absolutely necessary (and buy carbon offsets if you do). Walk, bike, ride a velomobile, use public transportation instead of gas-powered cars. - See if your energy company has an option for you to buy green energy or support green energy initiatives. - Install your own renewable energy sources, like solar panels. - Be conscious throughout your day and use as little energy as possible. Ex. instead of turning on the heat, just wear a few more layers and close the windows. We can save the planet if everyone just does their part. Everyone please act!
