After Diana Falzone, FoxNews.com contributor, wrote an article concerning Prince Jackson’s appearances on Entertainment Tonight, I received an inquiry from a justice advocate as to whether Cadeflaw was going to post a response. After researching the article myself, I thought it was not an unreasonable question, yet I was vexed in my spirit about the article and whether I should post on behalf of Cadeflaw.
DarkChild the fan may have jumped at the chance. DarkChild is a fan moniker so who would care, no one will know who I’m representing. DarkChild could easily be anyone. I had to think on this one long and hard. Of course I did read the article, but since I didn’t have a great feeling about it I decided to sleep on it.
Why was I so vexed about posting? And why the photo of Michael if this is about his son, Prince? Actually I included the photo as a reminder of what my real assignment is. Secondly, I asked myself what would Michael do and what would he want his supporters to do? If truth be told, I could have answered that before I went to bed. The answer was simple; do nothing. More importantly, he’d want me to think it over carefully and be led, spiritually.
I got up this morning and not only did I have one reason to not post but I had ten reasons and they all made sense. When we make decisions in haste and without proper guidance we make foolish mistakes. I have many trophies and tee shirts I’ve won for following the crowd, in haste, instead of following my own learned wisdom; that is, wisdom from God. How many fans and nonfans don’t know about the term “Jacko” given to Michael Jackson by haters and fans? I added fans because it has been written and reported that the term was originally supposed to be a term of endearment, although I don’t know that for sure. Another source for this “Jacko” idiom, and I quote an online UK news source “The Telegraph”: “Michael Jackson’s often wildly eccentric behaviour earned him the nickname “Wacko Jacko” in the tabloid press.” Source Well, that is the opinion of “The Telegraph” but Michael didn’t like it and he said so here: “Michael Jackson – ‘Don’t Call Me Wacko Jacko’
We have kept our hands to the plow going on four years now. We’ve fought and fought about the use of the term “Jacko” and some media sources along with many questionable others who continue to use it with every opportunity possible. Many will continue to use it just to make us angry; many will use it because that’s how they really feel and online news sources will use it to get hits to their sites. The same reason CBS hired young Prince Jackson, for ratings. We can not stop people from exercising what they call their “First Amendment Right” or from free speech. They can say, write and publish whatever they choose. What we have to do, as a team, is get a legislator to push the Anti-Defamation Legacy Law and get it passed.
Now, we get to the rational reasoning for not posting:
- Prince Jackson is NOT deceased. Cadeflaw’s goal is to protect and preserve the legacies of the deceased.
- Prince Jackson chose to enter into an agreement with CBS. The sixteen-year-old Jackson has just been hired by “Entertainment Tonight” as an on-air correspondent. He made a choice. Key word here is “Hired”. Source
- Prince and Paris Jackson, I’m convinced, have been advised by some relatives to stay children and away from the media as much as it is feasible. However, I think they will do whatever is pleasing to them. We’ve all had to learn that with decisions come consequences, some consequences extremely unfavorable.
- Prince and Paris Jackson should NOT follow the guidance of their father’s fans. FANS are not familiar with the inner workings of the family. The Jackson’s are a family unit.
- If we play with fire we are bound to get burned. A relationship with the wrong media outlets can be the beginning of a fire that will burn out of control. Prince Jackson is mature enough to be acquainted with this. I would wager he has been schooled well.
- By now the older children and perhaps “Blanket” have some knowledge of how their father was treated by the media.
- The Anti-Defamation Legacy Law Advocates have to keep some distance from sources who may be considered to be a bit too challenging or by what some deem to be, “fanatical”.
- Cadeflaw’s approach to this concern is a global one and especially to law makers. Attacking the media or people who don’t like Michael, his children or his family will not get our purpose accomplished. We need that law as a means for the family members of Michael and other deceased persons to bring reasonable complaints in opposition to those who defame and slander their deceased family members. Perhaps, with the law, the families can prevent some of this thoughtlessness.
- It’s very difficult to go out on a limb for people who have made up their minds to do what they yearn for. Apparently, the Jackson family has made a decision to support young Prince with this endeavor. Who are we to interfere in that? It is my opinion that young Prince Jackson is not STUPID.
- It is the desire of the Cadeflaw Group that legislators take this initiative serious. CADefLaw’s name posted on every article, of which we estimate to be negative, printed or published about Michael, Whitney, Trayvon or Lance Corporal Snyder may dub the members to be seriously psychologically challenged or prejudice; and that is not the message we wish to convey.

Can we take our eyes off of whom we don’t like or who is not doing as we say and come together for the betterment of the legacy of those we say we love and still have great respect for? The Jackson children don’t need us to fight their battles. I’m sure there are plenty Jackson’s to get that job done. What we can do, together, is support the great humanitarian causes we have in the community. You don’t have to like me to know that this law is a good thing and it will impede some of the things we know to be incredibly iniquitous.
I am positive that this will not be well received, with some, in the Michael Jackson fan community, but it is necessary. The Cadeflaw Group will continue to support those persons or groups who are positive influences and who are in fact striving to make a difference, and at the same time promoting peace. Too many supporters have left the community because of the unrest. There seem to be an excess of bullying in the Michael Jackson community. The Michael Jackson who inspired this initiative is one who promoted TRUE “Peace” and “Unity”, not STRIFE. Together, we can accomplish many wonderful things if we would just “Come Together”. Together, we have and can accomplish much but apart we will accomplish nothing that will last.
Can we do it? Yes, we can. I wish young Prince Jackson the best in whatever direction he choose to travel. I believe he will be given the tools he need to endure whatever may come. This law will be for him and his siblings. They will be the ones to make the real difference. Together, let’s make this LAW a reality.
WISDOM IS dependent upon knowledge. Where there is complete ignorance there can be no wisdom, no knowledge of the right thing to do. Man’s knowledge is comparatively limited and so his wisdom must be small, unless he can connect his mind with knowledge greater than his own and draw from it, by inspiration, the wisdom that his own limitations deny him.
Only God knows all truth; therefore only God can have Real wisdom or know the right thing to do at all times, and man can receive wisdom from God. Wisdom is obtained by reading the mind of God. – Wallace D. Wattles, “The Science of Being Great”
