When Michael sings on the Statue of Liberty torch, he wears a sleeveless tank top and a white long-sleeved outer tee-shirt. In one shot the white tee-shirt is hanging down by his elbow so part of his arm is exposed, yet in the next shot the shirt is pulled up on his shoulder so the arm is no longer visible. See more »
On the Dangerous DVD Release, the end of the video has been slightly changed. On most releases Jackson just smashes the windows, but in this version there are racist coments on the windows that he smashes. This helps make sense of this scene (Jackson wasn't going on a rampage, but rather trying to destroy all the hate in the world). It was then latter removed for the HIStory DVD (for some unknown reason), which contains the scene without the racist comments. See more »
When I first saw 'Black or White' I was amazed at all of the effects, costumes, sets, dancing and the overall feel of the video sends a good message. My favourite part was when Michael started doing the ethnic dances which shows how versatile he can be as a dancer and performer. However the panther section was under a lot of controversy over whether it was appropriate or not. I've seen that part and all I can say as, this is Michael Jackson dancing, moving and expressing himself just like he always has. I don't know how something like that can cause so much controversy when all the music videos nowadays are 'sexed up' and are 10 times less appropriate than anything before 1995.
Many people judge Michael as 'Thriller' being his peak but I disagree because albums like 'Bad', 'HIStory' and 'Dangerous' (which Black or White is off) provide a wider source of brilliant songs to his catalogue. But here you have the greatest entertainer/performer of the modern era with an amazing video that captivates audiences of all ages that can't take your eyes away from the spectacule.
