RANGERS OWNER DOLAN SENDS SECOND EMAIL TO EMPLOYEES TO CLARIFY HIS STANCE ON RACISM

Earlier, we brought you a story regarding Jim Dolan, the owner of the New York Rangers and New York Knicks, who was facing some backlash from employees for not issuing a statement condemning racism in the wake of the death of George Floyd. The email, which had been obtained by a reporter, stated that "we are not any more qualified than anyone else to offer our opinion on social matters. What's important is how we operate. Our companies are committed to upholding our values, which include creating a respectful workplace for all, and that will never change." According to SNY, Dolan has issued a second email to employees clarifying his stance on racism.
Yesterday, I made a sincere attempt to provide my perspective on a very difficult issue, one that has no easy answers. I know how important this topic is to so many, and I do not want there to be any confusion about where I as an individual, or we as a company stand. So let me be clear: we vehemently condemn and reject racism against anyone, period. It is against every value that we hold dear.

My point yesterday was about actions, and the importance of living your values. At Madison Square Garden, we have worked hard to build an environment of inclusion and mutual respect and those are the values that we try to live every day. Racism is born of ignorance and it's up to each of us to understand that the person working beside you is your equal without regard to color, or any of the other qualities that make us diverse. And any injustice to one person is an injustice to everyone.

This is how we at MSG fight racism. We start with ourselves, and through our actions, we define who we are. That is how we can be an example to the wider world. That was the point of my message yesterday.

I am proud of the environment you have created here. I know that this is a difficult time, and that we will always need to communicate with one another on the hard issues. I will continue to do as much as I can to help make our community even better. I know you will also.
Dolan’s second email came after a report that disgruntled employees of Madison Square Garden were planning to hold a meeting without him in attendance to discuss their concerns over the lack of a response from their employer. Whether the second email is enough to alleviate their concerns remains to be seen.
