Tuesday, July 26, 2016

Michael Jordan has been receiving backlash over the years for not lending his voice and money for causes to help African-Americans who spend millions on his sneakers every year.


Michael has heard your concerns and decided to help big time.

Michael Jordan says he’s “deeply troubled by the deaths of African-Americans at the hands of law enforcement” … and is donating $2 MILLION to try to make a difference.

The NBA legend penned a statement for TheUndefeated … saying he’s also angered by the “cowardly and hateful targeting and killing of police officers.” and can no longer stay silent — and is using his money to make a statement.

Read his statement when you continue...




“I am making contributions of $1 million each to two organizations — the International Association of Chiefs of Police’s newly established Institute for Community-Police Relations and the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.” 
“Although I know these contributions alone are not enough to solve the problem, I hope the resources will help both organizations make a positive difference.” 
“We need to find solutions that ensure people of color receive fair and equal treatment AND that police officers – who put their lives on the line every day to protect us all – are respected and supported.”
