Michael Jordan and the Jordan Brand have donated 100Million toward fighting systemic racism over the next 10 years.
The NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund and the Formerly Incarcerated and Convicted People and Families Movement are both recipients of $1 million in support from the Jordan Brand. The Black Voters Matter Fund will receive $500,000, People reports. 
“I’m all in with Jordan Brand, the Jordan family and our partners, who share a commitment to address the historical inequality that continues to plague Black communities in the U.S.,” Jordan said in a statement. “There is a long history of oppression against Black Americans that holds us back from full participation in American society. We understand that one of the main ways we can change systemic racism is at the polls.”


“We know it will take time for us to create the change we want to see, but we are working quickly to take action for the Black community’s voice to be heard,” the NBA icon added.
The three groups who received funds were chosen “based on their ability to take action that can create impact now.“

“The $100 million commitment was just the start. We are moving from commitment to action. Our initial partners can directly impact the social and political well-being of the Black community,” Craig Williams, President of Jordan Brand, said in a statement. “We will have a disciplined focus on social justice, economic justice and education, as the most effective ways for us to eliminate the systemic racism that remains in society.”

They are doing what they are told by white people, all those years you have been donated to white charities who do not need the money we still had those issues you never cared, but hey if its going to help go right ahead, but what if you guys put all that money together and open businesses in the community or fund small black businesses, it would be much better
