They Don't Care About Us Maxi-CD CoverThey Don't Care About Us (Maxi-CD)

'They Don't Care About Us' is the third single from Michael Jackson's album 'HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I', released on May 15th, 1996 in the USA by Epic, fourth single in the UK.

The song was written and composed by Michael and chosen for single release by Michael, ahead of Sony Music’s preference, 'Money'.

Lyrics deemed 'anti-Semitic' by Jewish groups:
Jew me, sue me, everybody do me;
Kick me, kike me, don’t you black or white me.

Michael, who insisted it was a public awareness song, responded by releasing a statement that read:

'The idea that these lyrics could be deemed objectionable is extremely hurtful to me, and misleading. The song in fact is about the pain of prejudice and hate, and is a way to draw attention to social and political problems. I very much regret and apologise from the bottom of my heart if I have hurt anyone’s feelings in conveying my own.'

Michael further stated he would re-record the song, changing 'jew me' to 'do me' and 'kike me' to 'strike me', and that apology stickers would be affixed to all existing copies of 'HIStory'.

New pressings of 'HIStory' in 1996 saw 'jew me' changed to 'chew me', and 'kike me' changed to 'hike me'.

'I'm talking about myself as the victim,' Michael later explained. 'David Geffen, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Stephen Spielberg, Mike Milkin – these are my friends. They're all Jewish, so how does that make sense? I was raised in a Jewish community.'

The maxi-single CD contains the single version and 5 remixes of 'They Don't Care About Us' made by Charles Roane, Dallas Austin, Love To Infinity, Track Masters. 'Rock With You' remix are made by Frankie Knuckles and 'Earth Song' remix are made by Hani. Last there are 2 interactive videos on this maxi-single CD that you only can play with your PC.
