The White Guy Asks….Why is the Black Community Fighting over Sneakers?

…that could easily be the question white people could ask and legitimately at that. Many of us will shrug it off like it’s not me or my kids but it IS our community. Sneakers? REALLY? How do we defend our community when the naysayers as in conservatives, republicans and racists use this as an example for how out of control our community is? Priorities? Do we have any?  This has got to be the most embarrassing most humiliating thing to watch for black people.  Fighting for some damn sneakers? Can you imagine if the black community fought like this for fair and equal treatment at the corporations that we work for, education, safe communities, black men taking responsibility for their children, drug and alcohol addiction, mental illness? We can only dream….in the meantime, watch the nightmare on video.

    Kevin Ross is misinformed, why not just tell the white man,” THESE FEW PEOPLE DOES NOT REP FORTY EIGHT MILLION BLACK PEOPLE.

      Thank You! Fewer blacks have fought over sneakers than have, and making the claim that we all do is only furthering the stereotype. I know no black person who has ever fought over a pair of sneakers, including myself.
