Michael Jordan published a statement on George Floyd’s situation. He says there is a need for change, but it is up to everyone to achieve it. Here is his statement below:
“I am deeply sad, really tormented and just angry. I see and feel the pain, indignation and frustration of everyone. I stand by those who proclaim deep-rooted racism and violence against colored people in our country. We have enough.
I have no answers, but our collective voices show strength and inability to be shared by others. We have to listen to each other, show compassion and empathy and never turn our backs on senseless brutality. We must continue to act peacefully against injustice and call for accountability. Our unified voice must put pressure on our leaders to change our laws, or we must use our voice to make systematic changes. Each of us must be part of the solution and we must work together to ensure justice for all.
My heart goes out to George Floyd’s family and the countless others whose lives have been brutally and senselessly taken from racist and unjust acts. “
