Michael Jackson: Rev. Sharpton wants a commemorative stamp

The Rev. Al Sharpton said yesterday at a church in Los Angeles that he is requesting that the U.S. Postal Service issue a Michael Jackson commemorative stamp, E! Online reports. The USPS typically requires a five-year waiting period after a death before issuing stamps. Sharpton also called for a national day of mourning, urging people to gather in schools, community centers, and churches to pay tribute to the singer on Tuesday, when a public memorial service will be held at L.A.'s Staples Center.

    Thanks Al. Thanks for getting as much face time as you can when somebody dies. We really appreciate all your help.

    I can just see it. MJ walking hand-in-hand with a little boy. So touching….in all the bad places.

    Hey, i see nothing wrong with Michael Jackson getting a commemorative stamp. I think he should. Lucille Ball,Marilyn Monroe and most other legends have. Also,why couldn’t the United States give Michael Jackson a national day of mourning, the world was shocked when finding out Michael Jackson died. I know i was and still am. I grew up listening to my sisters “Ben Album”.
    I stand behind Al Sharpton all the way on this one and i am a white women. Doesn’t always have to be a African American person supporting Al Sharpton.I think most white people would think the same way..
    Good Luck,
    Al Sharpton

    Sharpton has as much class as you bashers.

  • WTF

    Al Sharpton is a media whore and needs to go away… forever…followed by Jessie Jackson … I agree a stamp is a good idea, but not because Al wants it..

    The Rev.S want a day to honor an entertainer, how about Bob Hope. He entertained thousands of our fighting men over decades while MJ entertained little boys at sleep-overs!! Enough..

  • Michael Jackson Fan

    Elvis married a 13 year old and had numerous relationships with underage girls. I never witnessed the outrage over the media glorifying him. I wonder why…

  • Ellen

    Yeah, and Bob Hope got a huge amount of coverage when he passed, but that was quite a while ago, and this is now, and this is Michael Jackson. Having said that, although the death of Michael Jackson has hit me a lot harder than I would have expected, you can’t expect everyone to have the same response, and a national day of mourning is silly. The memorial service is enough for those who want to to have a chance to say goodbye. I’ll be watching it but that doesn’t mean that I think everyone else should as well.

    What? During his life, enough people didn’t lick Michal Jackson’s backside?

  • JT

    The things he’ll do to stay in the media. Times are tough now we have a black president, cries of racism don’t have the same punch.

  • Yay!

    Boy lovers of the world get their own stamp!
