Am I Going To Die Over A Pair Of Sneakers ?

While blood is pumping out of the brachial artery in my arm, pooling at my feet and soaking through my shredded North Face coat, jeans and Nike Air Zoom Tallac Lite boots, I am in shock. My entire left arm is numb, but oddly enough I can still feel the warmth of my blood steadily flowing down my leg.

"Am I going to die?"

"Yes. I'm going to die here over a pair of sneakers."

Bystanders camped out at House of Hoops on 125th Street rush to dial 911, but everything moves in slow motion for me as I call the only person I can think of.

Dumbest people on the planet.

These are the people Democrats are banking on to rise up in self righteous indignation when Mueller releases info about Trump's collusion, money laundering and human trafficking.

Good luck, Democrats. As you can see, the bruthas and sistas got other priorities. Meek Mill is in jail and something has to be done about that first.

Or at least burn down a city.

Don't point out the white people in R3's photo. It'll make him cry.

Taking a pair of Nike Mags makes me feel better about Michael.

they buy them to resell and some of those "kids" are paid by other people to stand in line and buy them.

And the reason for bumping this old racebaiting thread is...?

Killing for someone's else's kicks is a real problem. It's nothing to laugh about.

If it were not for systemic racism and white supremacy, young black men would not feel the pressure to build their self esteem by wearing $300 Jordans. Whitey is complicit in all black violence.

What is with those people and shoes?

Silly as part of this article is that somebody who has spent hundreds of dollars on a pair of sneakers but may not have Internet access or a credit card available

Shoes do really have power over some people to make them go ga ga. It's weird when one thinks of it from the abstract: fetishes, hoarding, stealing, collecting, status, etc. I'd like to know how many urbanites seem to keep those all white kicks looking so clean and new. Are they buying them weekly? Even blokes riding the subway and walking all over town have these bright white pristine pairs.
