NBA icon Michael Jordan decried “ingrained racism” in America Sunday as the sports world’s reaction to the death of unarmed black man George Floyd leapt leagues and continents.

“I am deeply saddened, truly pained and plain angry,” Jordan said in a statement Sunday, as protests over Floyd’s death on May 25 spawned violence and looting. “I stand with those who are calling out the ingrained racism and violence toward people of color in our country.

“We have had enough,” said Jordan, who was famously reluctant to comment on social issues during his playing career.
