Dr. Murray As 'Inspirational' as Michael Jackson

2/10/2010 2:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

One of the members of Dr. Conrad Murray's legal team says he's not concerned about the possibility of a downtown L.A. jury dominated by African Americans, because "Dr. Murray is as much of an inspiration as Michael Jackson was."

Dr. Murray As 'Inspirational' as Michael Jackson

J. Michael Flanagan tells TMZ Dr. Murray is a man of "humble means who became very successful" and a jury will appreciate that.

Flanagan also told us the defense team has received a summary of the official investigation, but he says the L.A. County District Attorney's Office has informed Murray's lawyers it will take several weeks before the D.A. gives them a copy of the full file.

Black people are stupid. Michael Jackson did not want to be black. He was ashamed to be black. That is why he only wanted white children, white wives, white skin, houses in white communities, etc. Michael Jackson even expressed reservations about having a black doctor but eventually accepted Murray because he couldn't find a white quack doctor. Almost all the dancers in This Is It are white. Every now and then he'd toss a bone to blacks and they still worship him. Blacks will vote "guilty" on Murray because they feel they are avenging Michael's death. Blacks feel this pseudo connection to Jackson.

Liars Oops, I meant lawyers will tell you anything to get your money. REMEMBER THEY GET PAID WEATHER THEY WIN OR LOOSE.

MJ Has inspired billions & billions all over the world for 40 years. He's been in the Guiness Book of World Records for the entertainer who's given the most money to charity.

A killer is a killer is a killer is a killer.

White, black, asian, latino is does not matter.

This man needs to know what time it is, and I just hope the jury is wearing a watch.

KILLER. The Jackson's old man needs to shut his pie hole also. Is there anyone left he has not tired to sue. Karma coming back to bite him in the ass.

I don't understand the question. Both men are black, so why would either have an edge with a black jury? What exactly are you trying to learn by asking this question???? Are you implying that black people would have a preference for one of these men because of their skin color? I find this post quite insulting AND disrespectful to black people, Michael Jackson, and Conrad Murray. Why would you even post anything about a doctor who was basically a hired drug pusher being inspirational to black people? Is this the kind of information considered relevant/informative/entertaining to TMZ? If so, I think I'm really going to have to rethink my coming to this website, and will have to encourage others that I know to do the same.

If Tiger Woods wouldn't have sex with children then neither should Iraq war veterans. But somehow Michael was different! We love you until you drop a pass like Hank Baskett.

Justice should be the mantra here; not race. What Murray did was inexcusable. Not even people who are living out their last days are treated like that. MJ's choice of lifestyle is a personal choice. All races know that. He certainly did not put up barriers to anyone who wanted to achieve. He achieved what he wanted to achieve; others have the same choice - he, personally, did not stop them.

Well yeah, the man is trying to brainwash people. Ain't gonna happen tho'. Anybody with half a brain KNOWS Murray sold out for the almighty dollar and got complacent after a week or two of Michael surviving Murray's cr@ppy, unmonitored administration of propofol.

The man has a history of irresponsibility and defiance of the law and laws of common sense and decency.

Here are some of them

Seven children by six different women.

Living well beyond his means and simultaneously not paying his debts and child support.

Failure to appears in court when summoned.

There's more but my fingers grow tired at the thought of all of his indiscretions.

if we see this situation thru murrays eyes we will all get infected by his low self esteem, he must of been at his wit end to have left this man to die while on a phone call to a patient on the other side of the map

I don't think a person who causes the death of another through gross medical malfeasance as inspirational.
