More current and former athletes, especially from the United States, have joined the movement that launched the racial assassination of Floyd George in Minneapolis, which has sparked violent protests and unrest across several cities in the country. The legend Michael Jordan also announced his opinion. He issued an official statement saying he was sad, hurt, but also furious.
“I am really very sad, I am in pain, but I am also totally angry. I see the pain, the rage and the frustrations of the site. I call for an end to racism and violence against people with black skin on our skin. That was enough.
I do not have all the answers, but our collective voice shows enough strength that we cannot be separated from anyone. We have to listen to each other, show empathy and turn our backs on mindless violence. We must continue to fight injustice peacefully and seek responsibility. We must work together to ensure justice for all. My heart is with George Floyd’s family, as well as with all others who have felt the brutality of racism and injustice,
“Jordan said in a statement.
