Michael Jordan joined coach Roy Williams and other North Carolina basketball luminaries in a video posted Monday condemning systemic racism and police brutality against Black people.
"Systematic racism has to stop now," Jordan said in the video. "We must take the time to listen and educate our family, our friends, our children on social injustice and racial inequality. Black Lives Matter more now than ever before. We have to get this right, so please take time to educate yourself and improve the lives of many people, many Black people. Thank you."
Other former Tar Heels -- among them James Worthy, Luke Maye and Sam Perkins -- echoed his message.
"We have to change," Wayne Ellington said.
