Michael Jackson's brother Marlon on US President: I fear for kids with Trump in charge
Брат Майкла Джексона Марлон об американском президенте: С Трампом у руля я боюсь за детей

Jackson Five star Marlon believes that the outspoken tycoon's election makes the world a 'far worse place'

There's a message in a Jackson Five song one of the famous pop family is desperate for Donald Trump to heed.

Before it’s too late.

In their huge hit Can You Feel It? the boys sang “all the colours of the world should be lovin’ each other wholeheartedly”.

Yet nearly 40 years on, Marlon Jackson tell Sunday People he suspects those words have fallen on deaf ears.

Today many fear the work done to rid the world of prejudice and hate is being ­unravelled by the new US President.

As Trump vows to ban Muslims, build a wall to keep out Mexicans and boost America’s nuclear arsenal,the worried singer tells the Sunday People: “If I could speak to him it would be about unifying the world instead of dividing it.

“I’d tell him we spend more time studying war than we do studying peace.

“He needs to understand the power he has been given.”

Asked if he felt Trump ­understood the responsibility of that power, Marlon replied “No”.

As a member of an iconic African American family, he hears people say Trump’s victory has set US race relations back decades.

It is 50 years since Marlon, Tito, Jermaine, Jackie and the late great Michael landed their first ­recording contract – in the midst of the civil rights battle and a year before the 1968 assassination of Martin Luther King.

Yet Marlon says: “The world was a far better place when we started than it is today.”

And he believes it will get worse. The star’s fears have grown after Trump’s victory ­appears to have ­galvanised white supremacists.

The tycoon has not always had an easy relationship with African Americans.

He once infamously declared “laziness is a trait in blacks”.

And on the campaign trail he said: “It is a disaster the way African-Americans are living, in many cases.

“We’ll get rid of the crime. You’ll be able to walk down the street without getting shot.”

His comments sickened Marlon.

“That was almost stereotyping the African American race – that in the neighbourhoods where we grew up there is so much violence and gang violence and shooting. That’s not the case,” he says.

Marlon, who has three children with his wife of 41 years Carol Ann Parker, is now worried what kind of society his five grandchildren will grow up in.

He’s also concerned for his two-month-old nephew Eissa Al Mana – son of sister Janet, 50, and her husband Wissam Al Mana .

“He’s the latest generation of the Jackson family,” says Marlon.

“And I wonder what type of world that generation will be living in 25 or 30 years from now.”

Janet’s husband is a Muslim.

When asked if she had converted to Islam, which Trump has been accused of targeting, Marlon said: “I know she practises the religion. But the way I see it is that it’s like any other religion I see in life.

“We were all created by the same creator and it’s not about teaching such things as hatred against other religions, its about coming together.”

The father of three says his own faith helped him come to terms with superstar brother’s Michael’s death at 50 in 2009.

It was a loss all the brothers felt greatly – and made all the more raw last month when Michael’s daughter Paris, now 18, claimed she thought her father was murdered.

The teenager told Rolling Stone she doesn’t believe her dad died from an overdose of anaesthetic drug propofol given him by his doctor Conrad Murray, who was convicted and sentenced to two years for ­involuntary manslaughter.

Instead she described his death as a “set-up”, saying: “It’s obvious. All arrows point to that (him being murdered).

“It sounds like a total conspiracy theory and it sounds like bulls***, but all real fans and ­everybody in the family knows it.” She added that “a lot of people” wanted her dad dead.

But Marlon says: “I am not going to drift down that lane for a few reasons. It’s pretty painful for me. I’m not really for sure what took place… I’ll leave that in the hands of the Lord and know the he will do the right thing.

“What I will say is that I do miss my brother.”

The family are always ­protective of Michael’s ­memory – and Marlon says he welcomed the decision to pull a controversial Sky Arts comedy after it cast white actor Joseph Fiennes as his brother.

Urban Myths depicted Michael, Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando taking a road trip after 9/11.

But a trailer revealing Fiennes wearing a ­prosthetic nose and ­geisha-white makeup caused a storm.

Paris said it “made her want to vomit” while Marlon branded the show an “insult”.

He says: “To do something like they did was ­disgusting and disrespectful.”

The Jacksons will particularly feel Michael’s loss when they return to the UK this summer for a series of concerts, including one at Blenheim Palace, a stately home in the Oxford countryside.

Marlon insists his little brother will be with them in spirit.

“He is always on stage with us in our hearts,” he smiles. “The ­audience doesn’t see him but we feel him.”

Britain has always held a special place in the hearts of all the Jacksons, especially Janet, who ­recently made London her home.

Marlon recalls the heady days of the group’s early fame – and being blown away when they came to Britain. “London has always been a special place for us to perform because the fans are so dedicated,” he says.

“Once, when we came to the UK in the early 70s, we were getting ready on the plane and we were about an hour out.

“The pilot came on the ­loudspeaker and told us there were 10,000 fans at the ­airport waiting for us. “This was at 5.30am.

“When we got there it was crazy. There were so many fans they ­nearly turned over our limo. They were shaking it back and forth. “London still has that fixation.” Jackie, the eldest member of the Jacksons, is 65. But Marlon – once nicknamed the “danciest Jackson” – insists age has not slowed them down on stage.

Laughing, he says of his ­current moves: “I can only can tell you what they tell me, ‘You haven’t lost a step.’

“I don’t think about it. I just do it, because if I thought about it I wouldn’t be able to do it.

“We have fun on stage. It lifts us all up. And it is amazing now to think some of the fans weren’t even born when we were starting performing.”
