The past few months have shown it is virtually a civil war going on right here in America. With more and more laws being passed about reducing gun control, people are going crazy. When there aren’t mass shootings, there are gang killings in Chicago and police killing minorities.

It is very heartbreaking to witness this in the home of the free, the principles of which America was founded. Because of the amount of minorities killed by the police, many believe it is a race thing. What else would people believe?

#BlackLivesMatter has become the movement in protest to what is going on. Many celebrities, of all races, have spoken out about what is going on. Now, Michael Jordan has finally broken his silence with a statement, saying he can no longer sit back and watch in silence, so he has made a $2 million donation, surprising many.
