Malawian Newspaper Uses ‘Crying Jordan’ For MJ Story
On Tuesday, Chicago Bulls legend and hall of famer Michael Jordan did what most have wanted him to do for years, and that’s use his voice to speak on social issues that affect so many.
“I can no longer stay silent,” Jordan wrote in a first-person piece published by ESPN’s TheUndefeated.com.
“I was raised by parents who taught me to love and respect people regardless of their race or background, so I am saddened and frustrated by the divisive rhetoric and racial tensions that seem to be getting worse as of late,” Jordan wrote. “I know this country is better than that, and I can no longer stay silent. We need to find solutions that ensure people of color receive fair and equal treatment AND that police officers – who put their lives on the line every day to protect us all – are respected and supported.”
His comments made headlines everywhere around the world, including Malawi, where one particular newspaper used the ever-popular Crying Jordan photo for the story.
