Possibly the most ignorant thing I have seen in a while. Black’s going ‘hog-shit-ass crazy’ over a motherfucking shoe. Excuse my English, but it is one of the worst stories I have ever heard and really is a testament of where my brothers and sisters heads are now that they have a black man in the oval office.[joke]
Seriously though, this video is proof that the ignorance is far from gone within the black culture.
Now, as everyone already knows (if you have any hip-hop/sports friends) Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player of all time. He is a mogul and a sort of evil genius for being the first NBA, NFL, or any other sports player to market himself and his brand so well. He has been retired from the game for at least 10 years and still, his merchandise (mostly shoes) bring him a gross income that easily puts him in the top 2%. Even after everyone gets their slice (including the poor ass 3rd world countries who make the damn things). So, it goes without having to mention that he is a very popular brand.
I don’t consider this man human, he is a legacy and a brand, nothing less, but sadly nothing more. I know nothing about him except for that gambling problem he was accused of having (we all got our poison).
Anyway, the problem isn’t with Michael Jordan. As a huge fan of the game and of the player, I understand the history of this “legendary purchase”.
However, I never owned a pair of Jordan’s and while all my friends wore them and chastised me for not being able to afford them (and later in life not giving-a-fuck-enough about a pair of shoes that cost more than an entire outfit) I never understood the importance of the shoe (or of any shoe for that matter).
Nowadays, most kids who wear the shoes aren’t even athletic. They wear them simply to say they have a pair (or 5 pair).
This is why I claim to hate capitalism so much, because it does something ugly to blacks and lower class, urban culture. It makes material, god-like. These people grow up not knowing what to think about for themselves because constantly others (including the media) have told them what to think, how to feel, and what to like and not like. It is so ugly to watch this as a black man. Ugh!
The lady at the end says that it was worth the wait, the fight, and the price to get her children the “things they need”.
THEY DON’T NEED NO FUCKING JORDAN’S!
I really hope she has that great attitude with her children’s school.
I can’t help but to ask if that were a book, or something useful to our children would there have been news coverage of it? Would people be in line and step on each other to get it. I’m afraid the answer is “NO, only for a pair of sneakers!”
