Skin head, dead head
Everybody gone bad
Situation, aggravation
Everybody allegation
In the suite, on the news
Everybody dog food
Bang bang, shot dead
Everybody's gone mad

All I wanna say is that
They don't really care about...

    YO BRO., or YO MAN! DON"T ''JEW ME'' DOWN. This was a street term used regularly against ''anybody'' , Jew or non Jew when trying cleverly to negotiate the deals going down. I think the term came about, 'cause many Jewish people were always known to be good Merchants and smart Deal Makers, like The Money Lenders, The Money Holders, Lawyers, etc., that sometimes got accused of lying and cheating somebody down. Maybe by this Michael became a little paranoid to protest defensively and thinking that it may be still in THEIR [that became ours] bloodline that needs to learn the ART OF THE DEAL, playing the game of deal making to become the individual you wanna become. This learned tool might have been even in the Talmud that was used in the old days. Obviously, on the overall Michael became disillusioned and angry of what was happening in his life, feeling so isolated and illuminated the wrong way in and by The Music Industry that he rebelled against the lack of care and what was doing to US[the artists and musicians] that have been affecting his fans as the people, but it was not meant to be Anti-Semetic that sometimes he was accused off.

    I guess Michael Jackson felt he was being ''manipulated,used and cheated'' by The System and then ''They'' in The System became jealous and angry with him if and when he tried to outsmart them. So, I can only think by Michael using the street term like in the old days to say YO DON"T ''JEW ME'' BRO., by this I don't believe he was being anti-semetic towards Jewish people or any other groups of people personally. Michael was just saying ''They' don't care about us'', meaning the System's power Elite that has may connections to each other by the names used like [The Government, The Illuminati Communists, The Zionist Nazis, The KKK, The Masons, The Media, The Paparrazi, etc.,] who don't really care about us, unless we are at their service and work for them and if we don't agree or much worse to cross them in any serious way ''THEY'' can put you out of buisness and even capable to having GOD's Words twisted and burn down His church.

    After he sings 'I'm here to remind you"- he then sings, actually he screams: "don't you let that infect your babies!!!!!"

    Michael sings this song with such passion. He isn't afraid of them.He is standing up to them and warning everyone within earshot of his voice what is happening to him, and others.In the "ad libs" He implores us not to let them "infect " us. He even talks to us through sign language, to get the message out...They don't really care about us.

    self explanitory. "they dont care about us."
    in a generalized summary i would assume this is targeted towards the media, government, police, and every hater mj had, they do not care about the stress they have caused on his life with all this contoversy. such as false alligations, and yes partly also racisum too is another factor. now he is gone. listen to the lyrics. if you just speak it, not sing it... it sounds similar to a preach, or a form of poetry. lyrics are everything

    I think They Don't Care About Us is about the hard times on African-Americans.It talks about racism which Africans faced.It also talks about the violence that happen on the streets as well.

    "Beat me, hate me
    You can never break me
    Will me, thrill me
    You can never kill me
    Jew me, sue me
    Everybody do me
    Kick me, kike me
    Don't you black or white me"

    It can mean a million things in my opinion, it could be about raciel injustice or athourity's allowing abuse like a teacher ignoreing a bully. It could mean something about corruption, and abuseing ones power for thier enjoyment. Like i said, it could have a million meanings, and a million point of views.
