I grew up believing so many lies, but here is the one that probably hurts me the most. Rather than what we were told to believe. Michael actually loved being black and he was proud of his race. the words coming out of his mouth would confirm it.
VITILIGO is a disease that causes the loss of skin color in blotches. The extent and rate of color loss from vitiligo is unpredictable. It can affect the skin on any part of your body. It may also affect hair and the inside of the mouth. Michael Jackson was diagnosed with vitiligo in 1984. He came public with the condition in 1993 on the Oprah Winfrey Show. He started growing paler in the mid-1980s without going public with the skin condition that saw him applying makeup to hide his disease from the cameras. The media widely covered rumours that he didn’t like the colour of his skin and this hurt him.
in the late 80s/early 90s, as his looks changed, his critics were quick to accuse him of “bleaching” his skin and wanting to “become white”. The singer finally addressed the issue for the first time in an interview in 1993. At first, he covered the patches on his face and hands with make-up, but when they became too extensive, he had to undergo a special treatment. Where Dr. Arnold Klein, his dermatologist, confirming the diagnosis and explaining the treatment.
