    Maybe it's the years of MTV that have portrayed these stereotypes, "cribs" "pimp my ride" are all offenders in this one articles eyes from what they were saying.

    I find it hilarious, it's no longer an issue of race, it's just being stereotyped in general!

    I'm white and have long hair, mock me!

    Which beings me to a random point, why doesn't this forum have a Movies sub forum?
    Urgh if it hadn't been for the sub standard humour that film may have been good, was infantile most of the 1 liners that were coming out

    Yeah same as the first film sadly, but more so. It's becoming a sadly common theme with summer actiony movies. Same with Star Trek.

    You can inset comedy that all the family can appreciate without it being infantile, look at Shrek

    Wait were getting off topic
    I agree with rolfa that he deserves respect for his music but morning especially this hyped stuff is more media fuelled than anything else and if people want to publicly morn they should do it on the jacko site so his relatives and others with a simler feelings can all see it. and I dont have problem with people that are morning just the fact it is everywhere.

    Look, you can all say what you want about jacko - but, he always slowed down when going past schools.

    Your integrity just left, you might like to go after it.

    The media is a world apart from 'fans' mourning what they consider a great loss.

    The intolerance of some is unbelievable. The man has only been dead 48hrs or so - what do you actually expect the media to be doing? Reporting on stolen ducks from a village pond?

    Will you be jumping on the Farrah Fawcett bandwagon too?

    I have not got a problem with people feeling sad about Michael Jackson, and as someone who REALLY grew up to his music (and you have to be at least 45 to say that, I reckon), I shall be sorry that such a good musician lost it all - for whatever reason.
    What I don't appreciate is people going on about what a 'genius' he was, and how he will never be forgotten - what, like Shakespeare or Da Vinci?
    I know that the media will be full of stories about him for the next couple of weeks - what I fear is that it will go on and on and on.
    Maybe it is because I am English but I am really uncomfortable with this wailing and moaning and gnashing of teeth that some of the so-called fans are demonstrating - what will these people do if someone really close to them dies?
    You cannot truly mourn someone you didn't know.

    Exactly, I've got a serious problem with anyone equating fans doing their thing over this with people mourning the death of someone with whom they had a real reciprocal relationship.

    Ok it's the media, sorry, but Janice Turner was spot on in the Times today: [unlike a mother] "fans have no investment in a star’s fate. It is win-win either way. If he lives, it means, perhaps, another album, a few more weekly mag exclusives of his loucheness, pet collection, addled decline. But if he dies, they have conspiracies to tweet about, a myth, a shrine to visit and vandalise with tea lights and kisses, like Jim Morrison’s raddled grave at Père Lachaise."
