    He waited, and waited, and waited to take a political stance on anything. Now that he’s old and out of the game, Jordan wants to talk about policing? Get out of here.

    On Monday, Michael Jordan decided to break his
    Clarence Thomas-like silence on race relations in this country to denounce the killings of unarmed black men, women and children at the hands of police. In a piece for The Undefeated, Jordan also condemned the killings of cops and donated $1 million each to the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund and the International Association of Chiefs of Police’s Institute for Community-Police Relations.


    It’s with great thought and all due respect that I say, “F–k Michael Jordan.”

    Even if Michael Jordan put up 2 mill to an effort to resolve the differences between the two camps, I might see him differently. But, what he has done is given one mill to one side, and one mill to the other side, effectually cancelling each other out....he's done nothing, as usual, IMO.

    He has not taken a stance!
