After receiving many angry phone calls and letters of protest, the later showings of this video removed the scene where Micheal Jackson smashes a car with a crowbar, smashes a window by throwing a garbage can at it, and grabs his crotch while dancing. See more »
When I first saw 'Black or White' I was amazed at all of the effects, costumes, sets, dancing and the overall feel of the video sends a good message. My favourite part was when Michael started doing the ethnic dances which shows how versatile he can be as a dancer and performer. However the panther section was under a lot of controversy over whether it was appropriate or not. I've seen that part and all I can say as, this is Michael Jackson dancing, moving and expressing himself just like he always has. I don't know how something like that can cause so much controversy when all the music videos nowadays are 'sexed up' and are 10 times less appropriate than anything before 1995.
Many people judge Michael as 'Thriller' being his peak but I disagree because albums like 'Bad', 'HIStory' and 'Dangerous' (which Black or White is off) provide a wider source of brilliant songs to his catalogue. But here you have the greatest entertainer/performer of the modern era with an amazing video that captivates audiences of all ages that can't take your eyes away from the spectacule.
