Michael Jackson was NOT the first black artist to have a video played on MTV. Several other black artists had videos in rotation on MTV years before Michael Jackson. They include...Tina Turner, Eddy Grant, Musical Youth, Joan Armatrading, John Butcher Axis, The Bus Boys, Donna Summer, The Pointer Sisters and PRINCE !!! This is a huge misconception...check your facts !

It was actually Micheal Jackson.MTV was getting criticized for not featuring black artists.Not only was he the first featured,he also had the largest rotation of his video for Billie Jean aired out of any artist at that time.
