OSMONDS BETTER THAN JACKSON 5, WHY?

jackson 5
OsmondsJuleah Richards,
Chippewa Falls, WI.

BORN IN 1960; ST.PAUL MINN. LIVED IN WONDERFULLY MIXED NEIGHBORHOODS IN SOUTH MINNEAPOLIS UNTIL I WAS 10YRS OLD. MY MOM MARRIED A FARMER FROM RED RIVER VALLEY. WE MOVED TO SPOT 10 MILES FROM NORTH DAKOTA AND 90MI FROM CANADA. THERE WERE ONLY SCANDINAVIANS AND FRENCH FOLKS. NONE OF MY PEERS HAD EVER BEEN “EXPOSED” TO ANYONE WHO DID NOT LOOK LIKE THEMSELVES. I ADORED MOTOWN MUSIC (MY SIBS MUCH OLDER) AND THE JACKSON 5 WERE WHO I DANCED TO…WELL, MY NEW FRIENDS THOUGHT I WAS VERY EXOTIC WHEN I SHOWED THEM HOW TO “BLACK DANCE” – (FOURSQUARE ANYONE?). AT 10YRS OLD I WAS TAUGHT A BASIC TRUTH. PEOPLE FEAR WHAT THEY DO NOT UNDERSTAND.
