They Don't Care About Us (The R&B Mixes) [Promo 2] Maxi-Single CoverThey Don't Care About Us (The R&B Mixes) [Promo 2 - Maxi-Single]

'They Don't Care About Us' (The R&B Mixes) promo maxi-single of Michael Jackson's album 'HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book' was released in March 1996 in the UK (pressed in Holland for the UK market) by Epic and made available to radio stations and nightclubs.

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.'
