• Michael Jordan speaks up against racism and injustice
  • Michelle Obama in pain and exhaused over the issue of racism
  • Chrissy Teigen donated $200,000 to bail out George Floyd protesters

Michael Jordan is one with the people who are seeking justice for victims of racism and violence.

The NBA legend has joined the long list of celebrities who are speaking up against racism following George Floyd’s death. The former Chicago Bulls’ shooting guard and small forward took to Twitter to share his thoughts about the incident.

“I am deeply saddened, truly pained and plain angry,” Jordan wrote.

“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.”

Jordan continued that he doesn’t have the answers to the pressing issues the people are facing right now. However, he believes that the collective voice of the people shows strength and unity. Thus, he encouraged everyone to listen to one another and show compassion and empathy and end the senseless brutality.

He also discouraged violent protests by campaigning for peaceful expressions against injustice. Moreover, he asked for accountability.

“Our unified voice needs to put pressure on our leaders to change our laws, or else we need to use our vote to create systematic change. Every one of us needs to be part of the solution, and we must work together to ensure justice for all,” he continued.

Jordan is only one of the people of color who have spoken up about Floyd’s death. Former first lady Michelle Obama also took to social media and shared an artwork featuring Floyd.

According to the ex-FLOTUS, she is also one with the many people affected by Floyd’s death. Obama said she was “pained by these recent tragedies.” She added that she was also “exhausted by a heartbreak that never seems to stop.”

In related news, Chrissy Teigen donated $200,000 to help bail out some Floyd protesters. Meanwhile, Beyoncé encouraged her followers to sign the petitions seeking for justice for Floyd.
