Breaking News

Michael Jordan says he's "deeply troubled by the deaths of African-Americans at the hands of law enforcement" ... and is donating $2 MILLION to try to make a difference. 

The NBA legend penned a statement for The Undefeated ... saying he's also angered by the "cowardly and hateful targeting and killing of police officers."

MJ says he can no longer stay silent -- and is using his money to make a statement. 

"I am making contributions of $1 million each to two organizations -- the International Association of Chiefs of Police’s newly established Institute for Community-Police Relations and the NAACP Legal Defense Fund."

"Although I know these contributions alone are not enough to solve the problem, I hope the resources will help both organizations make a positive difference."

"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."
