Sheryl McCarthy of Newsday writes, “I don’t want to hear anybody else claim that Michael Jackson’s arrest on child-molestation charges was part of a conspiracy to destroy the singer’s career… It won’t wash. Anyone who’s tempted to dismiss last week’s events as part of an Establishment ploy to bring down a successful black man should back off.
