Michael Jordan Speaks Out After George Floyd’s Death

This was originally posted on https://www.essence.com/celebrity/michael-jordan-george-floyd/ along with the image used.

Michael Jordan, who has famously been silent regarding racial and social issues—during and after his career—has finally had enough.

The NBA legend provided a lengthy statement regarding the ongoing protests following George Floyd’s death

“I stand with those who are calling out the ingrained racism and violence toward people of color in our country,” said the basketball Hall of Famer and owner of the Charlotte Hornets Sunday. “We have had enough.”

White Minnesota police officer Derek Chauvin murdered Floyd, a 46-year-old Black man, in broad daylight as three other responding officers watched on. Although Chavin was charged last Friday with third degree murder and manslaughter, protests still raged on throughout the weekend.

“I don’t have the answers, but our collective voices show strength and the inability to be divided by others,” Jordan said. “We must listen to each other, show compassion and empathy and never turn our backs on senseless brutality.”

In his statement, Jordan also encouraged the “peaceful expressions against injustice” from those marching in the streets. “Our unified voice needs to put pressure on our leaders to change our laws, or else we need to use our vote to create systemic change,” he added. “Every one of us needs to be part of the solution, and we must work together to ensure justice for all.”

This statement come as a welcome surprise to Jordan fans as they’ve long criticized the MVP for his lack of action and support of issues impacting the Black community over the years.

In a recent episode of ESPN’s The Last Dance, Jordan explained why he remained silent, saying: “I do commend Muhammad Ali for standing up for what he believed in, but I never thought of myself as an activist. I thought of myself as a basketball player. I wasn’t a politician when I was playing my sport. I was focused on my craft. Was that selfish? Probably. But that was my energy. That’s where my energy was.”

This was originally posted on https://www.essence.com/celebrity/jay-z-statement-george-floyd/ along with the image used.

Jay-Z may be the greatest rapper in history, but he also holds a higher title — Dad.

Amidst nationwide protests demanding for racial justice, Jay-Z has now publicly responded to George Floyd’s vicious murder at the hands of now-charged Chauvin.

“Earlier today, Governor Walz mentioned having a human conversation with me — a dad and a Black man in pain,” the rapper wrote. “Yes, I am human, a father and a Black man in pain and I am not the only one.”

During a press conference, Walz revealed on Sunday that Jay-Z called him personally, not as a musician and celebrity, but as a father. “It was so incredibly human,” Walz recalled. “It was a dad—and I think quite honestly a Black man whose visceral pain of this that he knew. His words summarized that justice needs to be served here.”

Like many Black people around the nation,Jay-Z is hurting at the tragic news of the recent deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor.

“Now I, along with an entire country in pain, call upon AG Ellison to do the right thing and prosecute all those responsible for the murder of George Floyd to the fullest extent of the law,” Jay-Z added in his statement. Saying that this was “just a first step,” he declared, “I am more determined to fight for justice than any fight my would-be oppressors may have.”

“I prevail on every politician, prosecutor, and officer in the country to have the courage to do what is right. Have the courage to look at us as humans, dads, brothers, sisters, and mothers in pain. And look at yourselves.”

Jay-Z and Beyonce have quietly been working behind the scenes for years as not only philanthropists, but as activists as well. Their long list of efforts has included bailing out Black Lives Matters protestors, funding families of African-Americans killed by police and demanding prison reform.  

Over the weekend, Beyoncé also added her voice to the calls for justice for Floyd in an Instagram video in which she said: “We need justice for George Floyd. We all witnessed his murder in broad daylight. We’re broken and we’re disgusted. We cannot normalize this pain.”
