Michael Jackson States He Would not Want a White Person to Play him in 1993 Oprah Interview (video)

This is actually a really good interview from 23 years ago with Oprah Winfrey and Michael Jackson. Jackson at the time granted Winfrey an exclusive interview to ask the questions so many people had speculated about, including his skin tone, his relationship with his father Joe and growing up in Hollywood without a childhood. Around the 23:50 mark, Michael admits that he would never want to have a white person play him in a movie. Unfortunately, a white actor, Joseph Fiennes, has been cast to play the late superstar Jackson who died in 2009. The movie is based on a comedy about Jackson, Liz Taylor and Marlon Brando getting stuck in New York during 9/11.  Comedy? About 9/11? The film was cast by a company in the UK but fans worldwide went ballistic on the social networks expressing their dismay over the casting. See vid below.
