Today Marks 10 Years Since Michael Jackson's Death

It was 10 years ago today that the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, died of an overdose at the age of 50.

Now, a decade later, after persistent claims of sexual abuse, many struggle with how to view his legacy. conducted a poll to find out how we're feeling about Michael these days. Here are the results:

28% of people think Michael's legacy took a hit from the child molestation allegations. But 44% think it stayed about the same . . . and 12% believe it GOT BETTER. 

Do we BELIEVE those allegations? Well, 39% of us do. But an even larger number, 41%, say they DON'T KNOW. And 21% say they don't believe he's guilty.

Now if you break it down between black and white people, you get slightly different numbers. 45% of white people believe Michael did it, and 15% say he didn't.
