In case you missed it over the Christmas holiday season, there was another glaring example of the failure of and continued demise of Black culture when tens of thousands of black people lined up outside of malls and shoe stores across America to buy a limited number of $180 Michael Jordan basketball shoes.
The first incidence I read about was here in Austin, where a police officer was beat down to the ground and then punched and kicked by a mob of black people waiting to buy a pair of the Nike shoes:
At least three people were injured, including an Austin police officer, at area malls last night as crowds gathered to be among the first to buy Nike shoes that were released overnight.
In what police described as a “chaotic” scene, up to 2,000 people were reported each at Barton Creek and Highland malls, police said. Crowds were also reported at Lakeline Mall. By 10 p.m., sales were canceled at all three malls, an Austin police official said today.
At Highland Mall, an Austin police officer was pushed to the ground, and then kicked and stomped intentionally about 9:30 p.m., Assistant Police Chief Sean Mannix said. Other officers used pepper spray to disperse the crowd and get the officer to medical assistance, he said.
Everybody wants a nice pair of shoes. So much so, that when the new Nike Air Jordan’s went on sale this morning, people were willing to fire off weapons to get to them.
The SFist reports, around 6 a.m. this morning, shots were fired at the Hilltop Mall in Richmond, where around 3,000 were people were waiting in line for the latest Air Jordan 11 Retro Concords.
If you show up to a mall, where you know there are less than 100 pairs of an item for sale and there are already more than 100 people in line for that product…why would you get in that line? Especially if there are already 1000 or 2000 people ahead of you? The reason is that these are not logical people, and — more importantly — they are not law-abiding people. They knew the line meant nothing. They knew that there would be a race, brawl, and riot to get to those shoes. They also knew that they could simply break down the doors to the mall and rob the place, as they tried to do in Detroit.
What most of the news reports won’t tell you is that the tens of thousands of people who lined up to buy shoes that most of them couldn’t afford were almost entirely black. And as I’ve said repeatedly, the best way to avoid violence is to avoid places where black people congregate en mass. To include malls (like the day after Christmas at the Mall of America in Minneapolis, where blacks rioted and brawled because of rumors of some rappers who were supposed to be there but weren’t. Or something.
Black culture has created a class(less) group of people who are hostile and easily provoked because they feel entitled. Generation-after-generation of blacks teach their kids how to manipulate the system and they are experts at it. Most of them think that society owes them something and that it should provide for them.
How many of those black people in line thought they would be able to use their EBT cards to buy their new $180 shoes? How many of them have no job and live entirely off the government teat — yet still have the means to buy status symbol shoes?
Ironically, those lucky (or violent) enough to get the shoes can look forward to being robbed and or shot for wearing them in public.
Tens of thousand of blacks lined up to buy $180 shoes they neither need nor can afford, but you know what you won’t ever see black people lined up by the thousands to buy: work boots.
