They don’t really care about us!

1001 and 1002 students voted for this song by Michael Jackson! So, ‘They don’t really care about us’ is the winner for both groups!

In general terms, what’s the main focus of this song, people?

“They Don’t Really Care About Us”

Skin head, dead head
Everybody gone bad
Situation, aggravation
Everybody allegation
In the suite, on the news
Everybody dog food
Bang bang, shot dead
Everybody’s gone mad

All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us

Beat me, hate me
You can never break me
Will me, thrill me
You can never kill me
Jew me, sue me
Everybody do me
Kick me, kike me
Don’t you black or white me

All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us

Tell me what has become of my life
I have a wife and two children who love me
I am the victim of police brutality, now
I’m tired of bein’ the victim of hate
You’re rapin’ me off my pride
Oh, for God’s sake
I look to heaven to fulfill its prophecy…
Set me free

Skin head, dead head
Everybody gone bad
Trepidation, speculation
Everybody allegation
In the suite, on the news
Everybody dog food
Black male, black mail
Throw your brother in jail

All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us

Tell me what has become of my rights
Am I invisible because you ignore me?
Your proclamation promised me free liberty, now
I’m tired of bein’ the victim of shame
They’re throwing me in a class with a bad name
I can’t believe this is the land from which I came
You know I really do hate to say it
The government don’t wanna see
But if Roosevelt was livin’
He wouldn’t let this be, no, no

Skin head, dead head
Everybody gone bad
Situation, speculation
Everybody litigation
Beat me, bash me
You can never trash me
Hit me, kick me
You can never get me

All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us

Some things in life they just don’t wanna see
But if Martin Luther was livin’
He wouldn’t let this be, no, no

Skin head, dead head
Everybody gone bad
Situation, segregation
Everybody allegation
In the suite, on the news
Everybody dog food
Kick me, strike me
Don’t you wrong or right me

All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us

All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about
All I wanna say is that
they don’t really care about
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us

Acho que em alguns trechos ele quis passar algo como um alerta, nos fazer pensar talvez no comportamento humano, tipo, veja o que está acontecendo conosco! Em outros mostrar muito pré-conceitos, pré julgamentos, rótulos que foram atribuídos simplesmente por aparências, coisas superficiais. E o que me chamou mais atenção, particularmente, foi o titulo que se repete várias vezes na música, “Eles não ligam pra gente”, é infelizmente a realidade de muitos, pessoas apenas julgam, apenas apontam, mas não se importam em buscar a verdade, não se colocam no lugar da outra, o que pode trazer injustiça, tristeza, opressão…

Você disse tudo, Stephany!

Professora eu gosto muito dessa musica, e na sua aula aonde dialogamos sobre a letra da musica, esclareceu mais minha mente, aonde vemos os preconceitos sofridos por partes da sociedade e também como a stephany disse: um alerta sobre o comportamento humano..

Pena que não conseguimos ouvi-la direito…

Professora gostei muito de ter trabalhado com uma música em aula, a gente poderia fazer isso mais vezes! Curti bastante!

Faremos, Victoria!

Essa música nos fazer pensar na maneira em que agimos. As pessoas são muito preconceituosas e julgam demais as outras . Isso muitas vezes acontece pelo simples fato de alguém não possuir a aparência os as características dentro do padrão da sociedade. Ninguém é obrigado a ser igual, todos possuem liberdade para serem como quiserem. Porém, não devem ser julgados por isso. Ser diferente não é motivo suficiente para ser desmerecido ou desrespeitado.
