Michael Jackson is seen to be either a pedophile by the ignorant, or a child trapped in a man's body by the psychological analyzers.
Sadly, Michael is now more well-known for his personal life rather than his extraordinary achievements in the entertainment business.
Common misconceptions include:
Michael hates his initial race, so he bleaches his skin.
Michael is a pedophile who likes to touch little boys.
Michael is now a woman.
All of these are simply the press taking advantage of a mega-celebrity. Michael has vitiligo, a disease that affects the pigmentation of one's skin and causes bright white spots to appear in random patches all over the body.
If one were to read the reliable information available regarding the molestation court case, one would realize that is wasn't even remotely possible for MJ to be guilty of the crimes which he was accused.

Michael is a compassionate human being whose sincerity has been misinterpreted as inappropriate.
