Based off an interview I watched with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. The topic of discussion was sneaker violence and Micheal Jordan’s relationship with the black community. “You can’t be afraid of losing shoe sales if your worried about your civil an human rights.”, Kareem says. “He took commerce over conscious.” Roland Lazenby, author of “Micheal Jordan: The Life” counters saying “ I say that MJ's story is a black power story, not the black power of protest and politics, but the black power of economics.”Lazenby continues, “his contributions to black issues are greater than perceived.” I painted Jordan shrugging to imply that he may not care. I mean do we even care? We still buy his shit.
