Michael Jordan said he used to be racist
May 8 , 2014
Michael Jordan's great-grandfather used to be a culinarian at a whites-only hunting club. After his death, Jordan's schoolmate referred to him by the n-word, so, he "threw a soda at her."
The legendary basketball player mentioned in his biography entitled Michael Jordan: The Life, that he was "really rebelling," adding that he thought he was a racist since he didn't like white people.
Jordan was suspended from the school following this episode, according to media reports. Another highlight in his biography talks about how he struggled with baseball when he was a child and his career in the sport was a "failure."
