Michael Jackson got acquitted on all 10 felony charges today. I’m so glad that another stupid showboat celebrity trial is done. However, I think this acquittal once again underscores the deep racism inherent in our social structure. It’s obvious he was acquitted only because he is white.
There are some celebrities that it’s hard for me not to feel sorry for. Michael Jackson is one of them. Britney Spears, the Olsen Twins, Ashlee Simpson, Hayden Christiansen, all of the guys in Friends, and Ben Affleck are also on the list. Most of these people suck, but I think I’d feel better if everybody would stop saying they do. I guess that would include me.
