Carmelo Anthony Michael Jordan

Michael Jordan finally got down off his stack of millions and said something about the police brutality that's weeping America.

Jordan, 53, is often criticized for raising the prices on his iconic Air Jordan basketball shoes that are so demand, criminals commit murder to own a pair.

NY Knicks superstar Carmelo Anthony held a Q&A session following his town hall meeting at a Boys and Girls Club in Los Angeles, Calif., on Monday.

One of the questions raised came from a participant who wondered how Anthony felt about Jordan finally speaking out about race relations in post-Obama America.

Anthony praised the aging basketball legend for finally “putting his money where his mouth” is, and speaking out for black men who are losing their lives at a frightening pace.

“I thought it was brilliant, and about time that he stepped up, said what he said,” Anthony told the media afterwards. “At the end of the day, amongst us, he is our face. He is an African American, a very powerful African American, so for him to step up in the midst of these times right now was very big on his behalf.”

    I'm just trying to figure out why the oppressors were given $1 million as well when they are the problem.

  • ShelbyMoore

    I don't buy Jordans for any of my nieces and nephews....no way my money is going to go into his yt wife's pockets.

  • yoni

    That nigga didn't really "speak out". He tossed some hush money (read: coins) in the NAACP's direction and went back to his yt woman.

  • yoni

    See. That money he "gave" was a write-off.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Many will disgree with me, I was to reach out to a Rose about this and having a shoe drive and reach out to him.

    Bottom line is folks do with there money what they wish to do, speciallficaly when they ware wealthy. You don't like it, don't support it.

    Don't support him, but support another shoe made by a white man, and it's whites dollars. Don't suppport White shoes makers and supoort the brothers and sisters below.

    Here a list

  • Alisa

    As many young people hell people in general spend their last dimes on some "Air" and Jordan has been nothing to me but a man enjoying the fruits of his labor & not feeling the least bit obligated to be a voice to issues in the world. Sad a man known worldwide is not more vocal. It would be great or should I say humble of him to lower the damn prices of his brand. The cost of Nike shoes is outrageous!! He just wants to golf & gamble. I used to love me some Jordan

  • Finding Forever…

    ~~~~~~~~~~
    Some would beg to differ, sir...some would beg to differ. Now he speaks? I don't think injustices against African-Americans have just started in 2016, but yeah...okay. I've NEVER purchased a Jordan & ISH like this makes me HAPPY that I haven't.

  • YaYa

    will he continue to speak out? continue to give money?

  • LibraGirlonly

    Praise my arse. He only did it because Nike told him to.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    *Jordan voice* Okay, I don't really care about the situation, but since you care about a meaningless statement from me, here it is......I don't like the killings of blacks by officers and I don't like the killings of cops by blacks ( which btw was only 2 alleged incidents, Dallas, and Baton Rouge vs the countless times they murdered us) so I'll give a million dollars to the NAACP (wtf are they gonna do....s - - t that's what) and I'll give a million dollars to the people that is killing black men.....now will you all finally leave me alone and stfu. (he walks off to his chauffer driven maybach, with his beige wife greeting him with a kiss to his full of s - - t, sweaty bald head, then he rides off into the sunset preparing to release the next version of those ugly azz Jordans) The End!!!

  • shun king

    Company told him he might start getting wispers of they might stop buy his shows so they suggested he give a vague statement

  • Jusstlookn To Stay Woke

    That's why I'm say much...Cause folkd really stan for MJ and it is what it is. Folks spend there money where they want and he does what he wanna do, when he wanna do it. PERIOD

  • ShelbyMoore

    You forgot to say, "fawk his Steve Harvey jeans". All that money and he's still dressing like it's 1995. FOH. That yt woman won't even tell his as$ to do better.

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    SR
    I read that he rented (IONO the correct word to use?) a full page of a newspaper.

    Can you post his full page? ?

  • SaltineCrackers

    Who cares what Micheal Jordan has to "say"? I don't.

  • ShelbyMoore

    Right!! It was probably Nike's money too. This jackas$ doesn't give af about black folks. He realized that black people are boycotting everything yt and back to school is coming up shortly and he doesn't want the stock on those over priced, shatty, as$ shoes to fall.

  • Buttercup

    Meh

  • LibraGirlonly

    Hey Mike can you address the issue about the people who stand in line to buy your sheity sneakers getting the police called on them?? Why is that? Is it to keep the folks in line? Literally and metaphorically?

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    People can buy his shows if they choose ?

    I met his chef who says he's a class act! I'd like for him to be more vocal

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Exactly. After all these years, he has seemed to only care about his coins.

  • LeBrick James

    Better late than never, I guess. But it wont really make a difference.

    Cops are not going to stop profiling and shooting unarmed black men just because Michael Jordan made a statement.

  • Nikki Benson

    SMH THAT MICHEAL JORDAN IS WHITE POLITICIAN who invest in private prisons..smh some of ya need to do some research ..micheal Jordan donates a lot he just doesn't do It in the limelight ..he damned if he do , damned if he don't ...

  • Nikki Benson

    im wit you ...but again folks need to research this man does a lot!!!! just doesn't do it in the limelight

  • Jusstlookn To Stay Woke

    SAY IT BREN, THE TRUTH

    oh and HI

  • Angela

    I can't stand Michael Jordan, his funky, too expensive kicks or his shiny, ugly black bald head..He doesn't give a darn about the Black community, only that we purchase his stankin kicks..

  • http://Copblock.org Brenden’s Back #BlockDeez?

    Ive met him myself, allegedly. There's nothing classy about a fifty year old multi millionaire who uses the Nword. Nothing...I'm not his nigga, not your nigga,,,I could say other things as well, but, meh...I'm not a fan, bottom line??

  • NegroDamus

    I'll be honest. I could care less if Jordan ever responded to any social injustice. He filled my childhood with wonder and amazement when he stepped onto the court. I emulated him when i played ball, up into high school. After that he was just a legend still selling sneakers in my opinion. Although i still revere him as an athlete, i never looked to him as a freedom fighter for social injustice.

    As a business man, you can't take anything away from him, and being a black man doing it the right right (so to speak) makes us look good as a people. I think MJ's way to fight the injustices he may have faced in life was to be a beast on the court, and command as many dollars as possible.

    yall can thank me for breaking that up and making it readable..lol

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    ???Nobody's gonna call out Melo rocking the Madonna(Who's that girl?)/Lisa Bonet HAT?!?! ????

  • kennedy campbell

    well i have met a few people that have never heard of michael jackson ...had a girl in my choir in college that hadn't heard of mariah carey..i was like what? you sing though? anyway she was only exposed to non-secular music and tv..so it's possible..i'm not into sports so i had no idea his wife was wife was cuban/white whatevere...never even knew the man was married..

  • Nikki Benson

    nike didn't tell him to speak out ...the bottomline is the folks that buy jordans will continue to buy them rather he spoke or not ...he hasn't spoke out in all they years and his shoes continue to sell out

  • http://Copblock.org Brenden’s Back #BlockDeez?

    And I totally agree with this comment. Tacky! Did you roll your eyes?!

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    They choose to stand in line no one forces them to rob and or kill for his shoes. It isn't his fault poor people idolize him and want to be like him so they buy his $200 sneakers that aren't worth more then $30. No they're poor criminals and Jordan's a capitalist, a business man thats offering a product to the American people. It's just business. It's the American way. FYI I'm being sarcastic , but there are people that feel this way. In my opinion he's a despicable human being and a poor excuse of a black man. Who doesn't having a problem profiting off of the ignorance of his own people. You can't get a pair of his shitty shoes on the release date with out entering a raffle or lottery.

  • Nikki Benson

    that's marketing ......supply and demand ..release a limited amount and folks will do what they have to do to get them ...#idiots

  • Nikki Benson

    that Michael Jordan that invest in prisons is a white politician nobody bothered to fact check that when they started that rumor smh

  • Auditor

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    Okay let's say he drops his prices, do you think that he would sell more or less?

    AND if you'on feel like fonting? Just say the word ?

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Yeah, he does look like a heavy drinker.

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

  • http://Copblock.org Brenden’s Back #BlockDeez?

    Ohhhhhh I'm sorry. Responding from disqus. I've never heard anything about Melo? I've been told countless times that he and I look alike? Mostly by White folks? I always told myself I would tell him that if we met. Meh,,,I've also been told I look like Obama, 50cent,,,I mean damn...I swear man. Sometimes I don't know how I maintain my calm demeanor?

  • NegroDamus

    how so???

    Mind you, late to the party or not, it is nice he said something. I may not like him but it is what it is. People need to come together and be united.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    I'm a sneaker head I'm into the culture so I under stand it. Jordan set the bar for over priced sneakers. If he were to lower the prices by even just a little I'm sure other brands would follow suit. Jordan's don't have to cost 200 bucks , that's way way too much for a few pieces or rubber and some fabric. There are other brands that offer cheaper sneakers that look just as good and even better than Jordan's. Take the Jordan brand away from the shoe and you left with shoe that looks like every to the shoe out there. That's my beef with him he can offered to lower the prices on his shoes and still make his money. I have a lot of his sneakers and the release are nothing like the originals. So whomevers buying his sneakers now isn't getting the same quality shoe from decades ago.

    There are countless stories of Black women and children who have been victimized by the police (see #Sayhername for references,) yet the narrative always focuses on Black men. Black women have blindly offered our support to Black men, yet rarely is it every reciprocated. While I'm happy to see athletes step up and out, I'm dismayed because Black women continue to be forgotten. Until this changes, I have a hard time cheering when we are routinely excluded from these discussions. If they believe that Black lives matter, then that should include Black women's lives as well.

    Never ever, EVER thought I, Kdub would cape for Mike. Ever.

  • Fendi

    I agree wth you. I posted something on IG about Jordan and Oprah recently. People love to drag wealthy Black folks. They forget that when you engage in philanthropy, you probably won't broadcast it. It isn't for others to know how you allocate your resources.

    Phil Knight is worth more than Michael Jordan. I never see Black folks asking what HE has done for Black people/to further Black causes, considering the billions of dollars Nike earns from Black consumers. But I'm shleep!

I stand most times, alone. But me, nor you liking him cant again, negate facts. Us not liking him is personal. Him employing black folks for the past 25 years within Nike? Facts babe

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    I will never understand the idiots that spend $400 on Jordan's. Now the irony is they're only spending so much, because the shoes old and no longer available for sale in stores. That same 400 Jordan's was $120 in the store but online its $400. Mind boggling! At retail Jordan's aren't more the $200 bucks max. It's the reselling on sneaker sites like flight club that jack up the prices. So in my opinion he can afford to lower his prices by 10% at least. I don't think that would hurt the value of his shoes, nor the brand. Besides not all Jordan's are coveted and overly priced. Only the really popular ones are. The other ones rot on the shelf until the prices are lowerd.

  • LeBrick James

    True. And I dont particularly care about him commenting on these various 'social issues'... but would have been nice if he had just once over the years spoken up about how crazy it was to rob and kill people over his [overpriced] sneakers.
    His voice would have carried a lot of weight (and possibly saved some lives) if he'd spoken on that. But he never did.
    So when people drag him for his silence on that issue, I cant blame them.

    No, not at all. If you choose to spend 1,000 on a pair of 12's or 11's that's your business. I'm my opinion if your going to drop money like that on shoes, at least make sure the shoes are well made with real leather, fur etc . I don't see the point in spending that much money on a pair of sweat shop sneakers. If you're dumb enough to drop $400 on a pair of $120 sneakers that are going to be re released be my guest. Funny I'm wrong for how I feel but let the topic be about child support or baby mamas and all hell breaks loose. Whatever.

    That has nothing to do with how people spend their money.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    My point is Jordan's are overly priced and cheaply made now. They're no longer a quality shoe, so their prices should now reflect that. I noticed the difference and I don't like his politics so I no longer buy his shoes. Everyone likes a bargain , even the big spenders. That 10% may get spent some where else or it may not that depends on the person.

  • Loyal Lifestyle

    I feel you. Not one more of my hard earned pennies are being spent on supporting someone's product, who don't even support their own race. MJ can forget it.

And what do his shoes have to do with anything? It's not like he's dealing drugs. Do you criticize high-end auto manufacturers for the criminals who steal cars and run the chop shops? We could do with a little less finger pointing, and a little more self-motivation, IMO.

  • yoni

    See, straddling the fence. Doesn't want to burn bridges with either side. So he sides with BOTH as to not offend. Tosses "leave me alone, go'ne git, scram" money their way, but recoups it off the pockets of black folks. Now don't get me wrong, black folks DON'T HAVE TO buy the shoes..............but they do.

    "Jordan just happens to do this "black thing" in a way that has been different. Quiet. Subtle. And no one gets it. His contribution to the race has been by providing power but not by voice. Most blacks aren't used to that. We want our leaders and heroes to make noise. Instead, Jordan has had more black people employed and upwardly moving through a $2.5 billion shoe brand for years. And now he's carrying that same process over to franchise ownership."

    He was very political in his wording and those donations. He wants to say and do something but he is also about his legacy and coins so at the end of the day he decided to pander to both sides. I think he wanted to feel better so that's the goal he accomplished.

  • mela.reign77

    I'm sorry if I am less than thrilled about Michael Jordan speaking out. I mean people are acting like he's some sort of God or something. Don't get me wrong he was and still will always be a great basketball player but I'm not jumping for joy about a statement or ghost written statement that was submitted on his behalf. I will always say that it's always an angle for some and maybe with him it's to sell more of his high priced sneakers. Which are scheduled to drop sometime this week, go figure. (I'm just saying) But who knows but we as a people are already aware of the events and horrific acts by the police department and are not giggling cookies and milk cause he decided to just now acknowledge that we have a problem.

  • LibraGirlonly

    There are articles out there about the investment in prisons.

  • LibraGirlonly

    I just skimmed over the article about it. It is this one.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    No one called me a hater directly but for some reason, how I feel is wrong to some and I shouldn't care how people spend their money. Ok fair enough. That still doesn't justify why Jordan a black man feels its ok to sell his people cheaply made sneakers at outrageous prices. Then someone said black folks stand on line for IPhones too. True,but I don't see anyone holding iPhone lotteries or raffles . I'm sure apple doesn't ship out small quantities of their products to incite violence on the release date either. Which is why raffles and lotteries are now held for Jordan's. Nike/Jordan would purposely ship out small quantities of their shoes on the release date, which caused utter chaos. So if you didn't get said shoe the day of you'd have to wait for it or go to a sneaker site where whomever runs the site bought large quantities of said sneakers and are now selling them for a jacked up price. Now these same sneakers are still in stores you'd just have to wait for the end of the week or the following week to get a pair. I worked in retail for years. I overstand the ins and out of the game that's why I'm so pissed off.

  • Fendi

    Because they have families to feed. I've never been impoverished, but I can only imagine that once you dig your way out of poverty, you probably don't want to return to it.

    Michael Jordan isn't oppressing anyone. Racism is a system of oppression. I doubt seriously that he condones racism, but people look to him to implement changes that aren't within the scope of his reach.

    Dr. Dre was just handcuffed in Malibu yesterday, in front of his own damn home because he asked a trespasser to move their car from his driveway. Said trespasser decided to call the police and lie, saying Dre had a gun when Dre had a phone, recording the incident. Even when you have money, if you're Black, you're subject to discrimination. Dre is close to a billionaire with a net worth hovering somewhere around $800 million. No one ever looks to billionaire Jimmy Iovine for donations to stop the perpetuation of violence in underprivileged communities, yet Iovine profited from gangster rap. People love to mention the rock groups he signed, but Death Row Records put that man over the top. Meanwhile, when Death Row was sold, it was sold in a fire sale for a mere $10 million. Same shit that was done when Jay-Z sold Rocafella. That label was sold for $10 million. We know damn good and well Death Row's catalog is worth a small fortune, but anything the Jews can do to steal from the Black man or woman, they're on it.

    That's the type of shit we need to focus on. That, and the fact that everytime a Black person makes a move to start his own distribution company, he is murdered. The reason Suge, J. Prince, Irv Gotti and Dame Dash were blacklisted is because they were moving to start a distribution company. They are our generation's Sam Cooke and Otis Redding. File it under the truth that folks will only tell on a Black blog.

    I agree. I love shoes, unusual shoes, heck I even make shoes and sandals when the mood hits and I want something unique. BUT I do not spend big money just for a name. That shoe would have to be well made by hand by some little old Italian man in Italy. I did not have an appreciation for very well made shoes until I went to Milan. Now at the time I also didn't have any coins but I did learn to appreciate a well made shoe even though I couldn't afford them. LOL

    Numbers may not have been her thing. Psychics don't see all, necessarily. I know people who can tell you whether or not you're able to reproduce. They don't need a doctor to test you. My grandma knew my mother was pregnant before my mom told her she was pregnant, and she knew my gender. (Mom wanted a girl.)

    I am late yet again on a post.

    I get it. 100. Like we should be grateful he did donate from his mansion with his Ofay wife sitting on the couch looking down at his cell phone moving swizz to do the 2 mil. But truth is, Mike ain't been black since he had EJ.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

  • Howard Alum ?

    And I get all of that, I am simply implying that athletes don't have to be silent. They can and should speak up more. Ali consistently spoke up about the injustices that plagued blacks. Why can't the LeBron James and et al, speak up. That could be there child, cousin, brother, ect.
    That's all I'm saying.....at one point in our history, people were not afraid to speak up, even if it meant losing their lives.

  • Li

    Frankly, I don't think athletes or artists "speaking out" make any difference at all. In Chicago, the body count is continuing with black-on-black crime. Michael was in Chicago during the Bull years and I don't recall him speaking out then, asking people to put the guns down. He DOES have a charitable foundation that does good.

    Why are these athletes coming out NOW? when this has been going on for decades!
    The difference is going to come from Congress and legislation and that's where the athletes should direct their money and their comments. Trying to talk to people who are killing people only partially works.
    As for the police on black shootings -- I would much rather they talk about young black boys self-esteem and why they're killing each other.
    It's literally a carnage out there. Look at what happened to Florida over the weekend.

  • Li

    He doesn't depend on just his brand shoes for money. The man is filthy rich. They would have to boycott his shoes AND his team, and all the other investments he has.

  • Li

    He gives a LOT of money through his charitable foundation. He works in the background.

    Nah, he doesn't need the shoe money. It's a large part of his revenue stream, but if he closed the shoe company down tomorrow he would still be filthy rich.

  • whitty hutton

    Articles on BLOGS not based on facts. He is not the Michael Jordan who is employed with the Oregon department of prisons. That WHITE Michael Jordan propositioned Nike to move some of their manufacturing operations from Indonesia to Oregon where the prison workforce could produce the shoes. Nike declined the offer. End of story. FACTS, not speculation. Neither Michael Jordan, Black or White, invests in prisons.

  • whitty hutton

    You're wrong...flat out wrong. Research facts not articles on blogs. If the Black Michael Jordan invested in prisons, it would've been discussed ad nauseum on ESPN and other reputable journalism outlets...not on a blog.

  • Li

    Somebody said there was a boycott (by BLM) against his shoes. And honestly, I don't think it would work or matter. blm would have to go to all the NIKE stores and stop customers from going in and/or stop them from buying online.
    I see more Jordans on feet than probably any other shoe, and the boycott would only cause the demand to be higher.

  • Li

    Rev. Jackson tried to boycott Nikes some years ago....and lo and behold he was wearing Cole Haan's shoes which is owned by Nikes.

Why then do AA men not break the mindset of what he has been "taught" over loyalty... to demonstrate and execute LOYALTY to the women of their culture that share their SAME SKIN COLOR, SAME EYE COLOR and SAME HAIR TEXTURE. I thought they were well educated and highly aware of their past and determined to disregard what they have been taught in wake of what their TRUTH really is. ?

  • Emily post

    Its amazing to me how loudly the females scream out for the aide to the men. Black females are unapologetically loyal but they dont receive that same loyalty from males. Yet no one makes a sound for their pain. They will make a MEME to Mock a black female but no one will raise a fist or lift a hand to help them. The same people who will say black lives matter will turn a blind eye to the oppression of the Black female.
    You cant yell about your sons mattering and ignore your daughters. IMJS... It troubles me that the main people speaking up and out are Women.
