Killer Mike, Michael Jordan*Killer Mike has shared an open letter to Michael Jordan, in which the rapper thanked MJ for his $2 million donation to help improve police-community relations divisions. He also urged the basketball legend to deposit profits from the “Olympic” Air Jordan 5, which drops August 20, into a black-owned financial institution.

Jordan is notorious for having very little to say about social justice issues within the black community, so he shocked all when he spoke out after the recent police shootings of unarmed black males. In his letter, he denounced police violence and  Jordan pledged $1 million to the International Association of Chiefs of Police’s newly established Institute for Community-Police Relations and the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.

But Killer Mike is calling on Jordan to do more.

“On the behalf of black people and cops (I have loved ones who are both) thanks for the million dollars to the NAACP [and] police [organizations],” Mike wrote on Instagram Aug. 7. “Now we [would] like to challenge you to send the profits of this Olympic Jordan Drop into a black financial institution.”

Mike goes on to write that Jordan’s example will encourage other players to follow.

“I’m sure Jim Brown, Kareem [and] Bill Russell will agree. Love ya man. [You] truly were/are the greatest,” he wrote.

Killer Mike then urges everyone to support black-owned banks. Read his full letter below.

Now we wud like to Challenge you to send the profits of this Olympic Jordan Drop Into a Black Financial Institution. We know that with your example other Players will follow. I’m sure Jim Brown, Kareem & Bill Russell will agree. Love ya man. U truly were/are the greatest. *********************************** Black People and Allies of black people instead of buying this or any shoe. (1) Start an account with a black bank or credit union. (2) Save 300 bucks and get a secured credit card (#citzenstrustbank has a good one). (3). Charge these or any shoe, pay your bill on time building your credit. This way u r fresh as u wanna be, saving your actual cash and building your credit score. That way these shoes are a tool for your empowerment and not something that chains you into poverty. ************************************* I hope MJ and Us, Do The Right Thing!
