A black man from Minnesota was brutally executed by white police recently, leading to heated debate in American society, US media reported. Today, Hornets boss Michael Jordan made a statement.
“I am very sad, very painful and very angry now. I see and feel the pain, anger and frustration of all of you, “Jordan said.” I support those who are calling for the elimination of violence and racial discrimination against people of color in the United States, which are deeply rooted. We’ve had enough! ”
“I don’t know what the answer is, but what we all want is strength and unwillingness to be separated. We must listen to each other, show compassion and empathy, and never turn a blind eye to those outrages. We need to continue to express our resistance to injustice in a peaceful way and demand accountability. ”
“We need a voice of unity and pressure on our leaders to change the law, or we need to vote to change the system.”
“Each of us needs to be part of the solution, and we must work together to ensure a just environment for all. My heart is with the family of George Freud and with the countless people who have suffered a cruel life. ”
In fact, after the violence, many NBA teams and players spoke about it. Before Jordan, LeBron James, the first NBA player in active service, expressed his thoughts on racial discrimination through social media. We are concerned about the developments in the United States caused by the death of George Freud, “the lives of black people are also lives, and their human rights must be guaranteed.” Zhao Lijian said that racial discrimination against ethnic minorities in the United States is a chronic disease of American society. “The current situation once again reflects the seriousness of racial discrimination, police violence and law enforcement in the United States, and the urgency of solving relevant problems.”
Zhao Lijian called on the U.S. government to take practical measures to fulfill its obligations under the International Convention on the elimination of all forms of racial discrimination and safeguard the legitimate rights of ethnic minorities.
