Why is Michael Jackson White?

11 07 2009

You’ve seen all the media coverage. It’s been impossible to miss. Television, newspapers and the Internet have been covering Michael Jackson’s death nonstop since the day he died.

The question that seems to be on everyone’s minds is that why is Michael Jackson white???

Some say its a disease. Some day its cosmetic surgery. Some say he’s Caucasian.

As usual, AHR digs deep to find out the rest of the story…


Jackson’s skin had been a medium-brown color for the entire duration of his youth, but starting in the early 1980s, it gradually grew paler. The change gained widespread media coverage, including rumors that he was bleaching his skin.

The Diseases

In 1986, he was diagnosed with vitiligo and lupus; the vitiligo partially lightened his skin, and the lupus was in remission; both illnesses made him sensitive to sunlight. The treatments he used for his condition further lightened his skin tone, and, with the application of pancake makeup to even out blotches, he could appear very pale.

AHR: It is widely stated that Michael Jackson had vitiligo, and thus the reason for his skin lightening is the skin condition that results in a random loss of melanin-producing melanocytes in the skin. He would have patches of completely white skin, where the melanin was missing. It would not, however, be a consistent and complete lightening from head to toe, as Michael Jackson appeared. No case ever documented has been that severe.

The Surgery

The structure of his face changed too; several surgeons speculated that he had undergone multiple nasal surgeries, a forehead lift, thinned lips and a cheekbone surgery.In 1979, Jackson had his first rhinoplasty after breaking his nose during a complex dance routine. However, the surgery was not a complete success, and he complained of breathing difficulties that would affect his career. He was referred to Dr. Steven Hoefflin, who performed his second rhinoplasty as well as more throughout his career. Jackson had his third rhinoplasty in 1984, another in 1986, and had a cleft put in his chin.

AHR: Thus the rumors that he had had bleaching seem to have some merit. Otherwise, Michael Jackson’s skin color would have been the same color as an albino. There are many methods to lighten the skin that range from chemicals to laser treatments, although no one knows if Michael Jackson did officially “whiten” his skin. And if he did, no one knows the methods he used to do so.

The Kiddies

Another groundbreaking…well possibly just plain obvious discovery is that MJ’s kids are white. And MJ is black.

AHR: Hmmmmm. If they’re his kids; then he’s white. If he’s not white, then they’re not his kids.

and ofcourse…the Egyptian Pharaoh

With the 24 hour coverage of everything related to MJ; at the end of the day..its up to you. You could be a Jackson lover, a Jackson hater…or just give a shit. The questions posed here today might never be answered; as it seems that MJ took them to his grave.

You guys swear you are experts your ***uckin stupid and ignorant. he had vitligo but since hes a performer he didn’t want to have discolored patches of skin so in order to uniform it he had a depigmentation procedure that would make his natural skin color (brown) match the color of the vitiligo maybe he didn’t have to keep getting it done and let it be shown so ignorant news sources like yourselves would know or maybe you don’t want to know. Also his son has vitiligo on one of his hands if you search it you’ll see and because vitligo is genetic the odds are hes the father. and stop flattering yourselves trust me nobody wants to be white.

This is one of the most misinformed articles on Michael Jackson that I’ve ever read. I’ve been a Michael Jackson fan for almost two decades and I’ve never heard the assumption that he’s Caucasian. That’s hysterical!

Don’s picture link is amazing, but his comment about “nobody wants to be white” is just plain racist.

There are pictures here that prove Michael had vitiligo: http://inrepair.net/2007/12/18/vitiligo-more-than-skin-deep/

This is the most misinforming MJ articles I have ever read. Don’s picture showed that there are cases just as bad, if not worse, than Michael’s. And that “Possible MJ Look Alikes” was just plain mean. Sure, he had a rhinoplasty or two (in fact two exactly) doesn’t mean you can go making fun of him for it. He obviously had vitiligo and lupus, which your assumptions of skin bleaching and whitening was low class. And as Don said his son has vitligo which is hereditary. Prince and Paris look like Michael, and his kids were white because his wife was white! Sometimes the gene in the female is more dominant than in the male, his kids are a perfect example of this. I swear this would break poor MJ’s heart if he saw how he was treated on this website. He didn’t have thinned lips, or a forehead lift, or cheekbone implants. He only had two rhinoplastys. And a cleft put in his chin in 1986 (as he said in his book Moonwalk). Before you go posting wrong information why don’t you do some research and think about who you’re hurting. It’s sad how he was treated, and after his death too! Sad, just absolutely sad.
