Michael Jordan supports racial equality
By Jerry Brownstein
Michael Jordan, regarded by most experts as the greatest basketball player of all time, recently pledged $100 million to improve “racial equality, social justice and greater access to education.” This came in the wake of protests over the murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer. “We have been beaten down as African Americans for so many years. It sucks your soul. You can't accept it anymore. This is a tipping point. We need to make a stand. We've got to be better as a society regarding race.” The six-time NBA champion hopes that his work will help people take a deep look at themselves to see what they can do to help curb racial inequality in the US.
