The Jordan Brand announced on Friday that the brand and Michael Jordan have pledged to donate a whopping $100 million to assist in the fight against racial injustice.
They announced that the donations will take place in phases over the course of the next 10 years and shall be made to those organisations that strive for social justice and equality. The statement reads in part, “Black lives matter. This isn’t a controversial statement. Until the ingrained racism that allows our country’s institutions to fail is completely eradicated, we will remain committed to protecting and improving the lives of Black people.”
Michael Jordan made a statement a week ago after the murder of George Floyd, “I am deeply saddened, truly pained and plain angry. I see and feel everyone’s pain, outrage and frustration. I stand with those who are calling out the ingrained racism and violence toward people of color in our country. We have had enough.”
