Michael Jordan announced on Friday that he and his Jordan brand will donate $100 million over the next ten years to improve "racial equality, social justice and greater access to education." The move came after George Floyd was murdered by a Minneapolis police officer.
"We have been beaten down [as African Americans] for so many years. It sucks your soul," he said according to The Washington Post. "You can't accept it anymore. This is a tipping point. We need to make a stand. We've got to be better as a society regarding race."
Jordan condemned the murder of Floyd in a public statement on May 31.
