You mean to tell me this is our society now when people are rioting over some SNEAKERS????
The videos of mobs of people trampling others, breaking down doors and fighting over the New Jordan XI Concords is beyond believable. I can’t explain this sneaker fetish as I have never been emotional about a pair of sneakers. And in saying that I don’t have a problem with people who lineup for hours (some over-night) to ensure they get cop the new Jordan, LeBron, or Kobe kicks. But I do have an issue with folks, namely Black folks on the verge of killing each other over some sneakers.
In the midst of a recession people want to fight over some over priced sneakers ($180) when they should be fighting to get their finances in order or even better fighting to make sure their kids are getting a proper education.
How many of these parents who are lined up outside of shopping malls waiting to buy the new Jordans will lineup outside of their kid’s school demanding a good education??
We need to get together folks, our priorities are all screwed up!
“It’s worth getting trampled over to get them what they need…”
When did Jordans become a necessity?
SMH, I wonder what Michael Jordan thinks about this?
If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!
This is a really messed up situation.
