Recently African American NBA Legend Michael Jordan broke his silence about the police shootings in communities. People were given the opportunity to respond to his comments through a social statement. (You Got 99 Words) I chose to use the (You Got 99 Words) as an opportunity to offer my idea. This is what I wrote.
Thank you Michael Jordan for speaking out, donating funds, and creating a shift. My idea is (fans respecting other fans) FROF – use it as a marketing tool to represent people respecting other people, police officers, sports teams… The idea is to give (humanity) a chance to learn and laugh about opposing fans. America needs a whole new approach to dealing with our hate. Hope this helps. All I know is if MJ puts in the effort to this situation like he did for his basketball career then this ignorance is removed from our planet in a month. Game On!
Regardless if you think my idea sucks or is genius I wanted to take it a step further and follow up the response with a possible video to further the idea. Remember: FROF is Fans Respecting Opposing Fans. Which I think is a good place to start due to the backdrop of how certain fans feel toward other franchise fans. Like the San Francisco Giants fans vs Los Angeles Dodger Fans. If we can get these two baseball franchises to show respect for one another than maybe we can branch off into other areas of communities that exhibit no or little respect.
A Jet fan in awe says: Every adversity, every heartache carries with it the seed of a greater benefit.
The tag line: You never know who someone is till you take the time to find out. So take the time to find out. FROF
