  1. I don’t understand why Barbara Walters had the NERVE TO SHOW UP AT MICHAEL JACKSON’S MEMORIAL!! SHE DID NOT LIKE HIM AND SHE NEVER HAD ANYTHING NICE TO SAY ABOUT HIM WHILE HE WAS LIVING. I WAS BLOWN AWAY WHEN I SAW BARBARA WALTERS AT THE MEMORIAL ON TV AND, SHE SAT NEAR THE FAMILY!!! WHAT IN THE WORLD WAS SHE DOING THERE!!

    JUST TO LET YOU KNOW BARBARA WALTERS, I KNOW WHO YOU ARE AND I KNOW HOW JEALOUS YOU WERE OF MICHAEL JACKSON! YOU HELPED TO DESTROY HIM!!

    TO BE SPECIFIC, I REMEMBER THE TIME WHEN MICHAEL SAID THAT HE HAD A BILLION DOLLARS!! Barbara Walters made sure that she refuted his allegation by saying,”HE DOES NOT HAVE A BILLION DOLLARS!! HE IS NOT A BILLIONAIRE!! BARBARA WALTERS NEEDS TO SHUT UP AND SIT DOWN. SHE IS A RACIAL PROBLEM IN THE WORLD!! SHE IS ONE OF THE PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT READY FOR AFRICAN AMERCANS TO BE SUCCESSFUL!!

    My message is, “The world is changing whether you like it or not! You cannot and will not keep power in the palm of your hand!! I KNOW YOU AND I AM WATCHING WHAT YOU DO!! WE KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!
