Michael Jackson: “the Frankenstein of white America”

Very interesting comments by Kwame Kwei-Armah, the actor and playwright, on Sky’s Sunday with Adam Boulton. He said that in his youth, he always regarded Michael Jackson as a good looking black man but was dismayed when he appeared to have morphed into a dodgy white woman. He said that as a black man this was a slap in the face and that it had suggested to him that there was something fundamentally wrong with being a black man. Jackson, he said, had become the Frankenstein of white America.
