We could stop these senseless shootings, assaults, fights and riots if we simply outlawed the timed release of these shoes. They should be announced by the manufacturer as being out 'sometime in March" or whatever month it is and the various stores should be able to sell them as soon as they are delivered. Don't let the stores advertise their availability until they are truly on the shelf so no one lines up to get them.

They're shooting people over athletic shoes. We could control this with common sense laws.

No one but professional athletes require Air Jordans. At the very least, there should be a ten-day waiting period before you can purchase them.

That is a good idea, take a deposit and set up a waiting list. When your size comes in they call you. No lines in which to start shooting people.

Yes, certain people should get them first, professionals like basketball players who need shoes like that for their jobs.
 
2013-03-16 08:26:11 PM  
Look, let me state the obvious: shoes don't kill people.  People who want shoes kill people.

There should be a background check and a "cooling off" period before buying Jordans.  If you cut off the supply of Jordans to convicted felons, then we wouldn't have these problems.

There are never lines for work boot sales. They are not hyped in the media like these sneakers are. The media in cahoots with the Nike PR machine, a key player in big footwear, gin up these things and cause these incidents to happen.

Common sense laws prohibiting these 'grand unveiling' events is all we need. They're shooting children over sneakers.

I don't see where anyone said that. I got his point to be that the PR machine of big footwear maker Nike forces its retailers to hold back stock until a certain time to create a buying frenzy. The target market happens to be urban youth, but if Naturalizer (another big footwear play - Brown Shoe Co. is huge) did the same thing with the elderly and they were hitting each other with canes there would be calls to make it stop.

Have our legislators given up on the young black men and women in our country? Why are there no calls for action to stop these tragedies?

I suppose that's what accounts for all the Republican/racist jokes about the president.

Republicans/racists just don't seem bright enough to realize that because a behavior is exhibited largely by a specific demographic does not mean that people of that specific demographic largely exhibit that behavior.

I mean, other than abject racism, why would anyone believe that President Obama was likely to modify presidential vehicles with "spinners" or oversize wheels or such?

Other than you two, I don't think anyone thinks that our president would do such a thing. Why do you have pictures like that, does it excite you to look at them and be racist in private, while putting on the concerned liberal face in public?

Like Chris Matthews bringing up the birther nonsense asking why people keep talking about it when he is the only one talking about it. You seem intent to paint everyone as racists. I think it might be because you feel guilty for being a racist.

So you think it is OK that our elected officials aren't doing enough to stop the violence in our black communities?

Your Boobies was about not knowing about Air Jordans, then immediately went into 'everyone is a racist but me' mode. Of course you know about Air Jordans, you have internet access, you can't miss the hype about these shoes.

You're the one posting racist pictures of the presidential limousine. You start throwing out accusations so fast because I think you fear people will find out your own racism.

There seem to be two camps of contributers to this thread, those who are concerned a little girl was shot while waiting for overhyped, overpriced shoes, and those who think anyone but themselves are racists for even mentioning this story.

One camp suggested not hyping these shoes (like a new Harry Potter book) and letting the stores sell them when they arrived, or taking deposits and making a waiting list. You just insinuate or explicitly call everyone in the deliberative, lets find a solution camp a racist.

People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. You start yelling racist because you're afraid we will learn about who you really are.

What is your proposed solution to this problem? Calling everyone a racist doesn't solve anything.

They never have a point. They just like to call people who are concerned about the problems affecting all communities, including the black community racists. They don't want solutions they want to divide the nation by name calling, it makes them feel better about themselves.

If they wanted to help the black community they would stop labeling anyone who proposes a solution a racist. They have a deck full of race cards and they are always looking for a game to play them in. They are really just Jokers.

Not sure if serious, but in case you are, you're suggesting limiting free speech and imposing unreasonable restrictions on commerce.

Maybe the government could issue ration cards for shoes too. Heck, the government could even take over the shoe industry and make sure everyone had access to more utilitarian, but cheaper to produce footwear.

feckingmorons: The media in cahoots with the Nike PR machine, a key player in big footwear, gin up these things


Yes, hype sells and I wouldn't doubt if there were some sort of quid-pro-quo between Nike and mass media. What next? Outlaw sponsored links on Fark? (While some people may like that, the government shouldn't enforce it).

and cause these incidents to happen.

Second, I didn't claim that "everyone is a racist but me."  Seriously, what are you basing that on?

Happy Hours: Not sure if serious, but in case you are, you're suggesting limiting free speech and imposing unreasonable restrictions on commerce.


Sure hype them up, but set up a waiting list, or let the stores sell them as the UPS guy delivers them and not hold them back until some kickoff event which has time and time again been violent. Manufacturers have to be responsible too.

Free speech can be limited to protect the public's safety. Commercial free speech is much less protected than individual free speech.

I mean we can add more restrictions to guns - those are in the Consitution too just like free speech - to keep our communities safer, can't we ask for a little cooperation from shoe makers? Can't we have some common sense laws to address this tragic violence that is reported each time a new Air Jordan comes out? How many more people have to be injured or killed because of sneakers?

eraser8: feckingmorons: Why are you harping on this, why do you want people to find racism.

It isn't my place to either encourage or discourage people from looking for racism.  But, YOU implied something about my facility for finding these images.  YOU were the one who asked, "Why can you find these racist images so quickly? Are they on your hard drive? "

I offered my procedure to thread as a whole to prove that local storage of these images isn't necessary.  Are you now willing to admit that these images can be found exceedingly quickly, without art?  Are you willing to admit that simple searches bring return these images in large numbers?


So your point that racist images can quickly be found on the Internet because you do it frequently and time it with a stopwatch is what exactly?

All I can gather is that you like looking at racist images. I'm sure you'll find plenty, but remember you're judge by the company you keep.

Is there some reason it's the responsibility of government to stop the violence in black communities?  Are you suggesting black people lack the desire, motivation, or skill sets to stop murdering each other in their own communities.  Are you suggesting that black people have lived off government largesse for so long they are incapable of independent thought or action without some Uncle Tom taking them by the hand? There is no room for such racist thought, sir.

They should be announced by the manufacturer as being out 'sometime in March" or whatever month it is and the various stores should be able to sell them as soon as they are delivered. Don't let the stores advertise their availability until they are truly on the shelf so no one lines up to get them.

Yeah, we have to make laws because low class blacks get in fights over low class shoes.

You're the one with a 'procedure' to find racist images, not anyone else in this thread (as far as I know) .

Don't you understand what false concern is? You pretend to be concerned about people on Fark being racist, but you spend time looking for and scoring how long it takes to find racist pictures on the Internet. I don't think you're truly concerned, but embarrassed or guilty that you enjoy reading racist things and looking at racist pictures.

It is like the preacher who spends Saturday night looking at dirty pictures, and Sunday morning giving a sermon about the evils or pornography.

The first question is: why is important to you to point out the perp is a black dude?

Second: there's nothing wrong with recognizing that certain behaviors or offenses are overwhelmingly perpetrated by people of one particular demographic group.

What's racist is assuming that most people of a particular demographic group are likely to exhibit behaviors and commit certain offense.

That's why I pointed out the insanity of making "jokes" that President Obama would plant a watermelon garden on the White House grounds or put enlarged tires and/or spinners on the presidential limousine.

Yes, that is exactly the point, yet there are several people who insist on calling everyone a racist when we try to come up solutions. Sure the shoes are popular in the black community, but anyone can buy these shoes - we are in a free country!

So, the only way to not be racist is to ignore racism?  I've always thought the Republicans making that argument were a bit nutty; but, you've explained their position quite well: they're insane. I mean, by your reasoning, ignoring murderers will end murder.

Do you not have any?

Do you only have venom and racism to spew?

We thought so.


Serious answer?

First, the culture needs to change.  People are using status symbols to define themselves.  I'm not sure how you'd go about changing that, but it has to go.

Second, I blame Nike and Michael Jordan.  They're maximizing profits with artificial scarcity.  They know that leads to shootings and stabbings.  Assholes.  Simply make enough for everyone.  It's not like Nike is short on labor, materials, factories, distribution, etc.  They would have to sell at a lower price but would probably make it up in volume.

But is there not a branch of science devoted specifically to that exact thing. Don't epidemiologist use race when compiling statistics about disease, and suicide, and homicides? Don't social scientists use race and gender when predicting where you're more likely to be a victim of a violent crime.

They are valid measurements and can be used to create hypotheses, but I don't think anyone but you suggested that correlation is causation. Yet you keep implying that we're all racists because we draw the same conclusions that the Department of Justice, the National Institutes of Health,and even the Urban League draw.

We're discussing the issue and proposing solutions, you are just calling people racists.

I'll ask again, do you have a solution to propose?

It is important to me because there's an obvious problem with violence in the black community, especially with younger black men. When 15% of the population is responsible for almost 50% of the crime, you're damn right we need to start pointing the finger. Calling that racist is pure farking ignorance.

His point is that all black people are criminals.

I don't see where anyone said that. I got his point to be that the PR machine of big footwear maker Nike forces its retailers to hold back stock until a certain time to create a buying frenzy. The target market happens to be urban youth, but if Naturalizer (another big footwear play - Brown Shoe Co. is huge) did the same thing with the elderly and they were hitting each other with canes there would be calls to make it stop.

Have our legislators given up on the young black men and women in our country? Why are there no calls for action to stop these tragedies?


I'm sorry, but that would be farking hilarious to watch... A bunch of oldsters shouting at each other, whacking each other with canes, ramming each other with mobility scooters... How awesome.

I think most of the people who fight over these shoes are not intending to wear them-- They're intending to sell them for a profit. We see the same profiteering bullshiat with video game consoles, hot Christmas toys, concert tickets and collectibles.

I used to work at a store where they had "Hot Wheels events" which are sponsored by Mattel. They send boxes of toy cars, and some of them are exclusives. The event is MEANT for children, but they've had to impose rules to make sure parents stay back and don't coach the kids to get all the collectible stuff they can flip on ebay. After the kids get the first pick, the adults can come clean up the rest.

You wouldn't believe how nasty, pushy, and sometimes violent these Hot Wheels guys get. They're jerks of the highest order. They fill their cart with as many as they can get their pudgy hands on, and then they steal from each other's carts! They buy HUNDREDS of them at one time. And they will argue with each other over the dumbest damned things... And pretty much all of these guys are white.

I've seen Black Friday violence that would make most people think twice about even going outside on the day after Thanksgiving.

It's not about race. It's about greed and ignorance.

That isn't my issue.  My issue is the temptation of the racist to extend demographically isolated incidents to all people of the same demographic.  As I said, there is NO reason to "joke" that the president will plant a watermelon patch or modify presidential vehicles with spinners/large diameter wheels/etc. other than naked racism.

If they are not shooting each other in line they will shoot each other in the street. This is a cultural problem, not a gun problem not a shoe problem. As long as they have a culture of violence and greed and no responsibility this kind of stuff will happen. 

I would bet that an infinite number of Amish waiting in line for an infinite period of time would not produce a shooting over a pair of basket ball shoes.

In case everyone hasn't figured it out now shoe laws are as absurd as banning high capacity magazines or guns that look scary and are called assault weapons.

Criminals will be criminals, there is little we can do about that. Sure, they should probably hold down the hype for these stupid shoes, but even if they took waiting lists some loser would probably shoot the guy with the list and add his name to the top.

You'll always see a few people on Fark who live for the opportunity to call someone a racist. Yet they're the ones posting the racist pictures.

The people that said criminals - of every race- are the problem are spot on. We don't need more laws to stop crime, we just need to put the criminals in jail and enforce the existing laws. We don't need new gun laws or new shoe laws. We have plenty of laws, and too many criminals We need to use the laws we have to reduce the criminals we have.

Look, I think you're a handwringer who looks to call people racists simply because you enjoy it. You guys never call a spade a spade or a criminal a criminal you blame everyone else. You're trying to absolve the gunman by calling us racists.

Let me clear it up for you, the Bureau of Justice Statistics shows that the majority of the violent crimes in this country are committed by black men. Does that mean every black man commits a violent crime, no of course not. Nobody here suggested that it did. That doesn't stop you from labeling everyone a racist though.

There is no other reason.

Other than you two, I don't think anyone thinks that our president would do such a thing. Why do you have pictures like that, does it excite you to look at them and be racist in private, while putting on the concerned liberal face in public?

Like Chris Matthews bringing up the birther nonsense asking why people keep talking about it when he is the only one talking about it. You seem intent to paint everyone as racists. I think it might be because you feel guilty for being a racist.

I was defending myself against a charge that, because it was so easy for me to find racist imagery, I MUST have kept these images locally on my computer.

My point was to show that saving such images is completely unnecessary.  A simple GIS search will return them in droves.


And you have a procedure - methodology perfected by continuous searches for racist images and the timing of the searches - just so you can tell us about it.

feckingmorons: eraser8: feckingmorons: Why are you harping on this, why do you want people to find racism.

It isn't my place to either encourage or discourage people from looking for racism.  But, YOU implied something about my facility for finding these images.  YOU were the one who asked, "Why can you find these racist images so quickly? Are they on your hard drive? "

I offered my procedure to thread as a whole to prove that local storage of these images isn't necessary.  Are you now willing to admit that these images can be found exceedingly quickly, without art?  Are you willing to admit that simple searches bring return these images in large numbers?

So your point that racist images can quickly be found on the Internet because you do it frequently and time it with a stopwatch is what exactly?

All I can gather is that you like looking at racist images. I'm sure you'll find plenty, but remember you're judge by the company you keep.

Criminals will be criminals, there is little we can do about that. Sure, they should probably hold down the hype for these stupid shoes, but even if they took waiting lists some loser would probably shoot the guy with the list and add his name to the top.

You'll always see a few people on Fark who live for the opportunity to call someone a racist. Yet they're the ones posting the racist pictures.

The people that said criminals - of every race- are the problem are spot on. We don't need more laws to stop crime, we just need to put the criminals in jail and enforce the existing laws. We don't need new gun laws or new shoe laws. We have plenty of laws, and too many criminals We need to use the laws we have to reduce the criminals we have.

Calling everyone racist is not a solution, it just makes the hand wringers feel better.

ferretman: New Air Jordan's and a black gunman....is anyone really surprised?



HEY!

This is America, gawdammit!

Roughly half of all shooters (and shootees) in any given year are black.

And that's a statistical factuality, right there.

No, you've refrained from accusing him of anything, which as I said is a credit to your patience.  He has entirely done this to himself.

Also, since that last link failed, I'll just post it here:  http://i.imgur.com/D3lTC.gif

I guess you didn't see the Republican/Racist comment he made, or the 'What's your point?" comment when I noted they don't have shooting as unhyped boring work boot sales. He didn't use the word, sure (well except where he really did) but he sure insinuated it.

Try to get those statistics from BJS and it will tough. You have to use an FOIA request because they don't like to put those things online.

That data is collected, but they are loathe to share it.

Of course you can look at the prison population as compared to the population of the country, but the handwringers will tell you that one group is imprisoned disproportionately. They'll tell you they are arrested more frequently. They won't tell you that it is because they commit crimes. If everyone that committed a crime were arrested there would still be a skew greater that two standard deviations when compared to the population of the nation as a whole.

Of course, the solution is to enforce the law, but we're not keen on doing that because it affects the statistics. We need to enforce existing laws, get rid of silly laws that should be civil infractions (like having a small amount of marijuana) and put the hard core criminals in prison. Let the bad check writers go on probation with a bookkeeping class, let the no driver license people pick up trash from the median for a couple of days, but put the people shooting one another over shoes in jail. Race is not involved at all, just criminality. When it sucks to be a criminal, people will stop being criminals whatever box they check on their Census form.

The handwringers don't propose solutions, they just complain about the problems.

I don't really consider the whole "urban thug" thing to be a racial/black thing anymore. It's certainly a stupid, ignorant, artistically retarded, violent, misogynist subculture that adds nothing to humanity, but its filled with ghetto white trash just as much as ghetto black trash anymore. I guess I'm saying that ghetto trash is ghetto trash.

So, I'll continue to go ahead and denigrate ghetto trash and feel good about not being racist, thanks. Until my black friend gets here and we throw on the Kyuss cd's =p

What racism in the article or the comments? He wasn't pointing out racism he was calling anyone who wasn't a handrwinger a racist?

Tell me your first thought was not 'Oh, no not this black people fighting over expensive sneakers shiat again'. If it was a story about two dudes beating each other with canoe paddles of a catfish you'd think redneck too.

Try this one where it is clear that the father, Jonathan Watkins belongs to a gang and has a long criminal history. If he wasn't targeted because of his previous criminality and gang affiliation that girl would be alive.

Why was he not in prison? He is 28, if he has that much of a criminal history why is he out and about. The politically correct handwringers ignore the problem and call people names for wanting the law enforced and criminals - real violent criminals- imprisoned.

What really needs to be done is give away free Jordans from rafts a quarter mile off shore from south central LA, say El Segundo beach by LAX, and another one by Oakland in the bay, one in Lake Michigan off of the south side of Chicago and then all along the Gulf Coast and Atlantic Seaboard. Of course there'd be one in the Detroit River too. Everybody would have to swim there and back. It would be fairly cheap compared to a life time of welfare and incarceration and some people might even get some new shoes. It would be much kinder than the current methods of crack, heroin and MD 20/20 which are just as effective but take so long to work.

ZeroCorpse: Now, this is not a race thing. This is an ignorance thing. There are plenty of white trash kiddos beating each other up over Air Jordans and other athletic shoes, as well as other kinds of bling/swag.

It's about upbringing and personal responsibility. Race is not an automatic indicator of idiocy.



Oops, you outed yourself with that qualifier, racist.

They'll tell you they are arrested more frequently. They won't tell you that it is because they commit crimes.

Yeah, the handwringers do complain that blacks are disproportionately targeted for arrest and disproportionately convicted of ALL classes of crimes, and while I'm sure that there is some truth to that, murder is a bit of a conundrum, as there are actually dead bodies lying about, and often witnesses.

Crime is a very serious plague to society at large, and to the black community in particular. Society and the media can pretend it's a non-issue or point the finger of "racism" all day long, but that isn't going to help the kids whose father is in prison (or murdered), and the fact that a yong man is unemployable due to an extensive criminal history isn't going to feed his family - it's going to drive him to more crime.

Self-perpetuating CULTURAL problem - started by do-gooder liberal policies, and perpetuated by tolerance of criminal behavior among the black community - where thuggery is regularly accepted, and even celebrated.

Very odd, you see Republicans want to reduce the size of government, reduce the number of laws that constrain our freedoms and let Americans live together in freedom and peace.

Republicans want to reduce government and that includes reducing government employees. Supermax federal prisons are run by the BOP and staffed by federal correctional officers. There is no profit to be made.

Except that wasn't what happened at all. Some racist tards made racist comments, and you threw black people rape of them as a threat. If you don't see the boneheaded racism in that, I don't know how to help you.

The fire department doesn't race across town to non burning buildings. If there is a crime problem the police increase their presence. Are you suggesting that is racist? Really?

My solution is to put you on ignore because you literally match your username. No hand wringing here. As far as I'm concerned violent felons can spend their entire lives being assfarked.

But not until you fix the problem of people being put away for smoking a joint or getting blown away for wearing a hooded sweatshirt.

So basically, my solution is that thousands of giant black felons should rape you repeatedly until you die.

Whoa! Why black felons?

Because he lives his life in pants shiatting terror of black felons. So he will already be all wide open and ready to go.

Your comment made you sound like the racist. Use better judgment next time.

Wanting someone to be raped and murded by a black felon is not racist? Can you explain that to me please?

Yeah, BJS is a bit stingy with the data I helped someone with a FOIA request for granular data once. It had to go to Court before they got what they requested.

Your link does have data, but the granularity is hard to come by and I'm fairly certain there were more than ~6000 murders in 2010. Heck Chicago, Detroit and Camden do half of that.

Perhaps we can work to disassociate the shoes with status for this subculture by setting price controls?

I mean, the shoes only cost, like, five bucks to make and ship over from China or South America anyway.  They should sell for $20, not $220.

Hell, given how many pairs of shoes are destroyed every day by retailers for artifical scarcity, they should be giving them away.  Because they're worthless.

Then no one would care if they got scuffed.

2013-03-17 12:11:45 AM  
Well, I think we have our answer.

These sneaker release events seem to invite violence. If any other producer of a product had as much violence each time they released a new version there would be cries for legislation and government intervention. New electronic gadget, they either have a waiting list or people manage to wait in line without shooting one another; new Air Jordans, you almost know there will be a shooting.

However the handwringers -and our government is filled with them- can't come out and say it is a problem and ask the company to have a wait list, or give out tickets (who cares if people sell them to one another). The company knows that nobody will say it and I've not seen a press release saying how terrible it is their customers can't keep from shooting up the place. So as a society we're letting that community down by not requiring that they behave like everyone else.

If you let your kids do whatever they want they will grow up incorrigible. We'll as a society we're allowing some kids to do just that. We can't just wring our hands, we have to stop their behavior and it will take a combination of enforcing the laws and corporate cooperation to do so.

If that makes me a racist then so be it.

Hmmm... that was odd.

I tried to say that most of our ancestors came here well after that period.

Yes slavery sucked, and it still sucks as there is a problem in this country (to a much lesser extent than many others) with human trafficking for sex workers.

It's already a fairly common practice to circumcise newborn males, and while it's controversial to some, it's a practice that's probably not going to end any time soon.  So, if snipping off penis parts is considered routine, why can't we just go in there and remove the feet at the same time?  Then we wouldn't have this problem.

Anna goes to a local law school, works downtown at a law firm, and proceeds to let me have it when we start talking about race in her neighborhood.

Look pal, the Grand Unified Theory of Oppression clearly states that, in any given conflict between any two peoples on the face of the earth, the white man is ultimately to blame. This doesn't just apply within the United States -- for example:

1) The US war in the Pacific: a "racist war" -- as Tom Hanks put it -- against the poor Japanese who were forced to make a sneak attack on Pearl Harbor after FDR (who is otherwise to be regarded as a sainted progressive) despicably levied sanctions against them in retaliation for their understandable defensive rape and conquest of half of Asia;
2) The Hutu-Tutsi genocide of 1994: this was entirely as a result of Belgian colonialism, and it's irrelevant that these two ethnic groups had been at each other's throats since at least the 1500s;
3) The Indian Partition: totally the fault of callous and careless British mapmakers, and not having the slightest to do with the pre-existing sectarian tension in India that dated back to the Muslim conquest of India and its massacre of dozens of millions Hindus between 1300 and 1600.

The Grand Unified Theory of Oppression proves that the violence that is currently taking place all over the US has already happened all over the world for hundreds of years, and that then as now it has been all Whitey's fault. Who the hell are you to disagree?

wow with the racial quagmire.  understand, children.  there are honest good smart people, there are easily manipulated people in the middle to be molded, and there are greedy self centered farkwads.  1...0...-1...there is an ongoing struggle for balance of power and influence between these groups.  Both of these sorts of people are found in every race, every ethnicity, every color, every different intensity placed on guttural syllables.  the importance we place on history may very well be the most redeeming of our qualities.  we are all brothers who millions of years ago were separated.  millions of years ago it was geography that established the barriers between humans.  and due to these geographical barriers we grew do have different colored skin, different languages, and different gods.  but at the molecular level we are all the result of the painstaking random chemical interactions that have occurred several hundred trillion times in every drop of blood in your body while you read this sentence.

every time someone acts like an asshole we need always to specify their skin color.  its like by identifying someone of their own race they somehow diminish their own personal worth.  which at the deepest level is a manifestation of fear.  primal fear.  the fears of cave dwellers 25,000 years ago.  How many generations ago was is that?  We all have it.  Their intentions were/(are) incredibly good, in fact they represent the light of life, the end all be all goal of living forever out at the end of the tunnel.  but 9 times out of 10 blindly following the rules is the right thing to do.  and at a primal level those rules dictate that mysterious and foreign things are to be assumed dangerous.  thus explains virtually all human conflict, so please shut the fark up about race from here on out.

martissimo: phrawgh: Most importantly, why does an 11 year old girl need Air Jordans?

If it was because she wanted to get a pair for her paraplegic brother for his birthday who knows that they will never really be able to make him "fly like Mike" but just wants to try them on and visually daydream about it would it make any difference to you, or is that still not good enough?

/cuz hey, you never know


Noted. I would like to make the observation that there never seems to be incidents like this at work boot sales.

feckingmorons: eraser8: feckingmorons: GAT_00: Oh goodie, I was just waiting here for the not so subtle racist posts to start.

You don't see these shootings at work boot sales.

What's your point?

There are never lines for work boot sales. They are not hyped in the media like these sneakers are. The media in cahoots with the Nike PR machine, a key player in big footwear, gin up these things and cause these incidents to happen.

Common sense laws prohibiting these 'grand unveiling' events is all we need. They're shooting children over sneakers.


Show me in the Constitution where it gives the government the authority to implement that law. And, what would be the punishment?

"What are you in for?"
"Murder. What about you?"
"I held a grand unveiling event for Air Jordans."

Popcorn Johnny: GAT_00: Oh goodie, I was just waiting here for the not so subtle racist posts to start.

If there are 500 shooting involving a pair of shoes and 490 of the perps are black, how is it racist to point out that it was a black dude?


If you have a good memory, you're a racist. Unless you have a good memory and keep your mouth shut when you see patterns that involve non-whites.

Compare and contrast this thread with the Indian gang rape thread and one can truly appreciate how ass-backwards Fark/American/liberal views on race and stereotyping is.

I guess the one reprise I can get out of this is the feeling of superiority I can get over everyone else.

feckingmorons: Vectron: You can't even get your diaper changed without getting shot five times these day.

Try this one where it is clear that the father, Jonathan Watkins belongs to a gang and has a long criminal history. If he wasn't targeted because of his previous criminality and gang affiliation that girl would be alive.

Why was he not in prison? He is 28, if he has that much of a criminal history why is he out and about. The politically correct handwringers ignore the problem and call people names for wanting the law enforced and criminals - real violent criminals- imprisoned.


But, if all the violent criminals were in prison, who would teach the children how to riot at Shoe Carnival? Think of the children!!!!

We need background checks and a three-day waiting period before a purchase of Air Jordans.

You're all racists for posting in this thread.... because I say so.

I thought they stopped making Air Jordon's in the 90's, along with Reebok Pumps?

If you enter that what else do you possibly think would pop up beside racist imagery?

I'm not sure whether you understand the point being argued here.

I was defending myself against a charge that, because it was so easy for me to find racist imagery, I MUST have kept these images locally on my computer.

My point was to show that saving such images is completely unnecessary.  A simple GIS search will return them in droves.


And I can search for "gay anal sex" and find shiatloads of it too. That doesn't mean my crazy uncle is correct about the gays taking over the world. It's the farking internet. Of course you can find racist shiat if you search it out. You can find anything if you search for it. Stop trying to use it as proof that somehow the rest of us support it.

It's funny because you couldn't pay me to wear Air Jordans. hahhaahah, and these assholes shoot each other for the ability to do so.

feckingmorons: We could stop these senseless shootings, assaults, fights and riots if we simply outlawed the timed release of these shoes. They should be announced by the manufacturer as being out 'sometime in March" or whatever month it is and the various stores should be able to sell them as soon as they are delivered. Don't let the stores advertise their availability until they are truly on the shelf so no one lines up to get them.

They're shooting people over athletic shoes. We could control this with common sense laws.


I agree. I've lined up for shoes. But never for Air Jordans. Buying them on ebay is safer than waiting in line. Never know who's packing what, or if they'll rob you if you get a pair. But the workmanship on Jordans is crap and I don't really buy them anymore.

It happened in Springfield. That's nobody's paradise. With minimal changes you could film The Walking Dead there.

Sum Dum Gai: Wait, Air Jordans still exist?  I honestly haven't heard of them since the late '80s/early '90s.  I thought they had gone the way of pogs.


Nike re-releases them every year, usually to large crowds who line up outside malls/stores across the country in the slim chance of getting a pair. The biggest shoe release of the year generally takes place around Christmas time, and is usually accompanied by a riot/violence.

EngineerAU: How many years does Mike have to be out of the game before Air Jordans become Chuck Taylors?

Not that there's anything wrong with Chuck Taylors other than they're usually worn by middle age white guys but you rarely if ever hear about any drama surrounding Chucks.


Chuck Taylors are not a status symbol like Jordans are.

Jordans were the first sneakers to cost 100 bucks. They now usually cost somewhere in the neighborhood of 170 dollars for "retro" ones.

Whoops, lost part of a paragraph there.

Try reading the whole thread. It was hyperbole. Of course there shouldn't be a law about shoe unveiling events. That is just stupid. We shouldn't need a law about that.

Sure Nike should realize it is a problem and have a waiting list or something, it works for Apple and their overpriced phones.

It was analogous to the banning of scary looking guns. Lawful Air Jordan buyers aren't shooting one another, criminals are shooting one another.

Yes, but do you have a 'procedure' for it and do you time how long it takes? That is the crux. Unless you do that you're as bad as your crazy uncle.

Well at least according to the handwringers who insist they aren't racist but post racist pictures in this thread, and insist they never use the word racist because they also used the word Republican in the same sentence and that is as good as crossing your fingers, it absolves you of racism if you say Republican.
