New Air Jordans Cause Shopping Frenzy Across U.S.
FOX ^ | 12/23/11 | swampsniper

Posted on 12/23/2011 1:02:13 PM PST by SWAMPSNIPER

The release of Nike's new Air Jordan basketball shoes caused a frenzy at stores across the nation Friday as scuffles broke out and police were brought in to stamp out unrest that nearly turned into riots in some places.

Shoppers stood in long lines through the night to get their hands on a retro version of one of the most popular models of Air Jordans ever made. The fights were reminiscent of violence that broke out in the early 1990s on streets across America as the shoes became popular targets for thieves.

The veneer of civilization is pretty thin in some areas of the country.Like paint over dirt.

So, we can expect a resurgence of murders of middle school kids, FOR THEIR DAMNED SHOES, whose parents have no better sense than to buy into this BS marketing crap from NIKE! These people haven’t a clue. No wonder they stay down on the plantation.

To be honest, if your COULD get your hands on a few pair...and kept them in the box and never wore them...you could probably make a pretty penny off of them. The MJ "limited editions" have gone way up in value over the years. I read where some of these new ones are already advertised on EBay at $399.

Regrettably for all the decent folks who happen to look like them, the demographic in the videos appears to be as expected.

For sure. The decent blacks will be tarred with this brush. It makes you want to go out with a 2x4 and smack these people in the head, first to get their attention, then to insert some sense into them.

I was talking to my brother earlier & he said that mini riots were breaking out in Charlotte, NC.

On a side note I always sooooooooo wonder what the comments said that were removed by the moderator.
