#1 "You will stand in lines for my shoes, but you wont stand up for yourself"
Said Former NBA Star Michael J Jordan after he finally broke his silence about the recent killings of black men. As a proud American, a father who lost his own dad in a senseless act of violence, and a black man, I have been deeply troubled by the deaths of African-Americans at the hands of law enforcement and angered by the cowardly and hateful targeting and killing of police officers.
#2 “I am sad to say this but my shoes are part of the problem”
Today’s statement is something of a public milestone for Jordan, who has been criticized over the years for his low profile in political and social advocacy, glad he has stepped up to make a change in whats going on in our crazy world.
