Do they care about us?

"They Don't Care About Us" (Michael Jackson)
Skin head, dead head Everybody gone bad Situation, aggravation Everybody allegation In the suite, on the news Everybody dog food Bang bang, shot dead Everybody's gone mad All I wanna say is that They don't really ca re about us All I wanna say is that They don't really care about us Beat me, hate me You can never break me Will me, thrill me You can never kill me Jew me, sue me Everybody do me Kick me, kike me Don't you black or white me All I wanna say is that They don't really care about us All I wanna say is that They don't really care about us Tell me what has become of my life I have a wife and two children who love me I am the victim of police brutality, now I'm tired of bein' the victim of hate You're rapin' me of my pride Oh, for God's sake I look to heaven to fulfill its prophecy... Set me free Skin head, dead head Everybody gone bad trepidation, speculation Everybody allegation In the suite, on the news Everybody dog food black man, black male Throw your brother in jail All I wanna say is that They don't really care about us All I wanna say is that They don't really care about us Tell me what has become of my rights Am I invisible because you ignore me? Your proclamation promised me free liberty, now I'm tired of bein' the victim of shame They're throwing me in a class with a bad name I can't believe this is the land from which I came You know I do really hate to say it The government don't wanna see But if Roosevelt was livin' He wouldn't let this be, no, no Skin head, dead head Everybody gone bad Situation, speculation Everybody litigation Beat me, bash me You can never trash me Hit me, kick me You can never get me All I wanna say is that They don't really care about us All I wanna say is that They don't really care about us Some things in life they just don't wanna see But if Martin Luther was livin' He wouldn't let this be. The vídeo with subtitles: What could you comment about the message of this song?

A min o video transmíteme que Michael que decir que todos somos humanos e hai que tratarnos ben mutamente.Hai que darlle unha segunda oportunidade a quen fixo algo malo porque todos nos equivocamos e temos dereito a unha segunda oportunidade.TODOS.
RIP

If I understood this video, I think that these thing are happening in many countries around the world. Although I think it's not for our country, it's really true. Too many people is in these conditions for absurd reasons. As the song says: "for being Jew, for being black, etc"
That's stupid and we must open up our mind!
Great song to talk about the human rights.

I have liked very much this good video in general, all or almost all the Michael Jackson's songs I am charmed with it. Good initially of this song a few children of color appear, and it is comom to say that we should be since should be we have to accept ourselves mutually.

I think that the video is very good 'cause it shows really things of life.In my opinion people black children have a bad life because they are descriminated 'cause of there skin colour.People in jail also have a bad time 'cause they can't see there family or friends.I think that this video is a very good example to show that not all people have got human rights.Michael Jackson is the best!!!!!!!!

Este video trata de la cruda realidad de como los policias que estan en la carcel maltratan a la gente que esta encerrada. Mucha gente que esta en estos momentos en la carcel no tiene culpa ninguna.

Este video aparecen imaxes de rapaces de africa e eso non me gusta por que eses nenos estan moi pobres e non teñen que comer.Polo demais e moi interesante.

Me gutó mucho el video y la canción. Me dio mucha pena algunas imagenes del video, ya que en uno aparecia un niño pequeño solo y llorando, era muy triste. No me gustan las canciones de Michael Jackson, la única que me gusta es esta.

Marcos:A min o video gustoume moito porque fala das pobrezas do mundo e dos malos tratos, por culpa da razas do mundo e racismos.

persoas que estaban na carcel,había guerras, estaban dando visión de que os negros principalmente eran maltratados.
