All well and good saying that he cannot keep silent but it is just nonsense yet again
Michael Jordan has "some" good points.
But imo, it won't be easy to stop these shootings unless young people, of all races, are taught to respect police officers...
...and if they are told to raise their hands and don't move, they have to do so.
White people also get shot for not following the directions of police officers.
BTW, I also wonder what sort of solutions Michael Jordan has in mind are necessary.

The people that hate him the most are the families of the victims who were beaten and/or killed in pursuit of his shoes, also because he was such an inspiration to many of them in their childhood as well. At least he is returning some of that blood money , I suppose that deserves a mild, barely sincere clap of the hands.

If this country tries to heal in separation it won’t be real healing.
This statement is quite eloquent and brilliant as well -- thank you!
As a leader Jordan proved more tormentor than mentor. Many Washington players got the business end of a Jordan harangue, but he designated second-year forward Kwame Brown as the whipping boy, referring to him, as reported by The Washington Post, as a "flaming faggot." A source told SI that Jordan ritually reduced Brown to tears in front of the team. Brown, whom Jordan took with the first pick in the 2001 draft, showed flashes of brilliance, but his confidence was lacerated by a player who was once his idol. "Michael was tough," Wizards assistant John Bach tells SI. "But that's just who he is, attempting to make [his teammates] better."
The day before game 4 of the Bulls Suns finals with the Bulls leading the series 2-1. Michael and Charles Barkley went golfing. They played 48 holes of golf. And Michael bought Charles a $20,000 diamond earring. Johnny asked MJ, “what did you do all that for?” Michael responded, “he won’t get in my way the rest of the series, what’s $20,000 to me? Charles thinks we’re great friends. I hate that fat #.” Jordan dropped 55 in game 4 and Barkley never touched him once.
When Johnny was coaching with the Hornets in 1995 they had a good team. Glen Rice, Mourning, Johnson. Series was tied at 2 and Hornets had a chance to win game 5 in Chicago. On the biggest possession of the game, Mugsy had the ball with the Hornets down 1. Jordan backed off of him and told him: “shoot it you f—ing midget.” Mugsy shot it, didn’t come close. A year later Mugsy actually told Johnny Bach that he believes that single play ruined his career. His shot never recovered.
