Jackson Brothers Tour

Jermaine Travels Alone

7/27/2012 3:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0728_jacksons_video_launch3
The Jackson brothers are NOT living up to the name of their "Unity" tour -- despite continuing to perform together -- because Jermaine just arrived to the airport on his OWN in Los Angeles.

Tito, Jackie, and Marlon arrived together shortly afterward -- telling us they're happy their mother has finally returned home after disappearing for over a week in Arizona.

Interesting that Tito and Jermaine have agreed to work together -- considering Tito TURNED on Jermaine (and Janet, Rebbie and Randy) and denounced the plot to overthrow the MJ Estate.

TMZ broke the story ... the living members of the Jackson 5 are performing together tonight in Saratoga.

Should be an interesting show.

The concert tonight in Saratoga was fantastic and the audience was on it's feet the whole night dancing and singing. Mrs. Jackson was there and received a standing ovation as she was seated. Unity

TMZ did not "break the story" about the Jackson's preforming in Saratoga. LOL....I get that source credit must be given/taken when reporting, but very funny how this was worded. Ticket holders likely knew a while back.

Jermaine needs the money to support the kids he had withnRandy's ex-wife. This whole thing is like a real life soap opera.

Jermaine is aggravating, in any of Michael's books it is well known that they, No he always had a rivalry with Michael. Remember he left them to be with his first wife, turned on his family & brothers! Worst part is he CANNOT sing & has minimum talent. I wish MJ had never left his children, his family is not capable of removing fighting or greed out of their lives!

I'd be a little more leary about Randy than Jermaine. At least Jermaine is making a little money by peforming with his other brothers. Randy doesn't do anything but stir up sh!t and spew lies. He is the ring leader in all of this and truely the one that is hurting the most financially. He is the one that is screwing it up for the rest of the family by dragging the other family members into his whoa is me, how can you let them do this to me, to us, mentality. They feel for their little brother and want to help but it has only hurt them in the long run by the way they went about it. It's too late for the backtracking now for everyone saw what they did. Back off and learn how to be family again, if that is possible or just leave the children alone and don't come around any more if you can't stand the them. For they will always be a reminder of the failed kidnapping attempt and the lost money.

10.) ROAD HAZARD

Nose jobs and skin bleachings - The Jackson family trademark

=====================================


and do you KNOW why they had the surgery and skin alteration......because the dawn of the 1980s introduced the call for racial assimilation and inclusion, a false ideal promoted by the establishment, encouraging premier black musical acts to alter their appearance in order to appeal to a white audience, an audience brought forth by the establishment, and more than likely, it was their record label that introduced them to the world of plastic surgery

but we are so conditioned to look at the present moment w/out considering the cir***stances that led to it.....

they are all victims of a racial antagonistic society that strips people of color of their self worth....

that encouragement has led to the chaos that we see today.......

so I call out all of you, and everyone else involved responsible for the predicament for if people accept others in their natural state, we wouldnt' have witnessing this.........

dee    

blah, blah, blah..........even I a Jackson fan is tired of their drama. And without Michael.............its really tired.
Grow up Jackson clan! MJ didn't put you in the will for a reason. Get out and work and take care of your children and yourself (Randy, Jermaine and whoever else). You made big money, but obviously did not invest it wisely..... Get out and work and do what is best for the kids..............

Jermaine tweeted, 'Correcting @TMZ... I didn't travel alone to Saratoga for tonight's show, I flew with my brothers. I will now repeat what I told fans from the stage tonight... You all have families. Sometimes it gets complicated. Whatever happens, whatever is said, we are family, we are one, we will heal. ' just a few hours ago.

bringing brighter days,

Here we go with excuses again. Stop blaming others for the choices you make. You are your own keeper, YOU decide what you choose to do and be. No one is keeping you down. You are basically putting down all the blacks that have made something of themselves, and there are many. So stop blaming the white man and start looking at your own behavior and attitude. Act like a normal human being and you will be treated as one. Blaming and cutting down other races or making up sh!t that isn't true only makes you look bad. If all black entertainers went and got a nose job then I would look into your accusations. Look at the Kardashians, they all got nose jobs. Did they also alter their appearance in order to appeal to a white audience? Kim only dates black guys and she isn't in the music industry, what's her excuse going by what you said? It's all about vanity and nothing else. Stop turning everything into a race issue.

because it IT a race issue.....and it was a race issue from day one...THAT'S what is lost in all of this....

Michael Jackson's fan base prior to THRILLER, 90% of his fanbase was black (because of the original support from the very beginning of his career)

and no sooner than the day the BAD album was released, this context of his audience changed overnight where the majority of his fanbase was white....and that's point blank fact.....

the recording industry took this guy after reaching the pinnacle and eventually turned him into a racial neutralzing presence w/the notion that he could sell even more records than he already did w/THRILLER and it never worked, it never happened...

even w/THRILLER, the majority of people who bought that album in the united states were black because when the album was first released, r&b radio supported the album before pop radio did

even w/the debut single THE GIRL IS MINE, they were playing that song on black radio before pop radio tagged along....and not until Billie Jean set the world on fire did Pop Radio rallied behind Michael w/fervor....Billie Jean hit #1 on r&b before pop radio


I suggest you get a book called THE HITS JUST KEEP ON COMING, THE HISTORY OF TOP 40 RADIO by Ben Fong-Torres

http://redroom.com/member/ben-fong-torres/books/the-hits-just-keep-on-coming-the-history-of-top-40-radio

this book delves deep into the history of pop radio and during the 1970s how pop radio segregated its airwaves and then a new movement was introduced to the musical landscape that would foster the crossover phenomenon of the early 80s which gave way to the pop music identification going full bore


then I suggest you grab another book called NILE VALLEY CONTRIBUTIONS TO CIVILIZATION written by author Anthony Crowder written in 1992. There's an entire section speaking on the entertainment industry...from pages 235-239 speaking on how premier black entertainers were encouraged to alter their look (mainly by having nose jobs and slight skin complexion alteration)...I'm talking about amazing talents such as Patti Labelle, George Benson, Stephanie Mills, we can go down the line, this began in the early 80s.....see, this is bigger than Michael Jackson, it was a systematic approach permeating throughout the entire industry, w/an attempt to exploit the talents of these people by appealing them to a commercial audience, but they did it in a way which alienated them from their original support....since Michael Jackson was the leading voice, the most influential voice, he underwent the greatest degree of change..........he was reconstructed, but the whole thing blew up in everyone's faces, and those who encouraged this guy to obliterate himself, they flew off and left him hangin, and he was all alone to fend for himself because by that time, he was seperated from his family and everyone else of importance....

I'm not blaming the WHITE MAN as much as I am the establishment itself, the system of things and how it strips you of your dignity and self worth....

I don't have to make up anything.....I've spent over 30 years of my life, every since I was 10 years old just watching everything unfold, and took down notes, and read tons of literature rather than participating in the madness

we've all been so conned we can't even see it....

Michael Jackson was already destroyed by the time the 90s had arrived....and thru song, he was already sharing w/the world what the pop ascension was doing to him.....listen to those lyrics for songs like WILL YOU BE THERE, SCREAM, AND STRANGER IN MOSCOW...

I'm not putting down anyone, I always love to witness great things, but Michael was robbed of his essential goodness because he was not allowed to be black, and the impact of that restriction has directly affected the way his family has functioned since

racism is the most dysfunctional activity that permeates to this day, and we all better wake up because if we don't, this country will be finished...it's already heading down the path to self destruction....

by the time people like Kim Kardashian took on plastic surgery alterations, the culture had already become impressioned with what was projected to them from the previous generation, so the novelty of undergoing plastic surgery has waned, but the damage carrying the same measure of consequence years down the road

the pop ascension movement is the greatest illusion in the history of music, built on the themes of conformity rather than genuine acceptance, so much damage has been done, what we've seen this week involving this family is only the tip of the iceberg

the first thing that's going to be revealed is the fact, which most of the public viewing body already knows, Michael is not those 3 kids biological father...it's only a matter of time...

Why should it matter if they bleach their skin or not? Millions of dollars every year are spent by white people to darken their skin. No one makes a big deal about that so why is this an issue? Many people get nose jobs too. Why are either of these things an issue at all?
