People All Over The Country Acting Like Fools Over The New Air Jordan 11 Retro Concords. Fights & Near Riots Break Out In Atlanta, Indianapolis & Seattle [Videos]


It's just a couple of days away from Christmas, but shoppers trying to get their hands on new limited edition Air Jordan's didn't show much holiday spirit this morning.


People in cities likes Indianapolis, Atlanta and Seattle fought, trampled each other, broke mall doors off of hinges and generally acted like heathens in order to get their hands on Nike's new Air Jordan 11 Retro Concords.


"Tinker made it shine. Mike made it fly. You made it iconic," Nike said in a statement. "Jordan 11s only come around once a year, so don't miss this highly anticipated release."


One woman in Lithonia, Georgia was arrested after leaving her 1 and 5 year old kids inside her car so she could purchase a pair of the $180 dollar sneakers.


"I don't remember anything like this in the recent past at all, definitely not with the iPhone or anything like that," Linda Jackson, a spokeswoman for the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, told

"I don't understand why they're so important to people. They're just shoes at the end of the day. It's not worth risking your life over," said Carlissa Williams, who added that she'll never do anything like this again.


In total four people were arrested in Atlanta. Fights also broke out in Kentucky and glass was shattered at stores in North Carolina according to ABC News.


Nike rakes in estimated sales of $1 billion a year on Air Jordans.

This is the product of a hyper-materialist, capitalist society. 

This is as far away from human nature, as one can get, and the bureaucratic, fat-cats, that made this possible, are all laughter and pointing at these fools, and laughing all the way to the bank. SMH!

Nation: stop consuming and start producing! Stop feeding the beast!  >:(

There are some collectors but I am estimating that most of these people just want to show off.
ever see some use spit to clean their new sneakers? Those are most likely the none investors.
what is a baby doing with a 180 sneakers? To show the hood your kid is expensive yet poor? What about college black people?

This s*** might be crazy, but I just got off and them s**** are going for $350 or better. I even seen a few pair up there for $750.00 - buy now, and the bid is already at $400.00. So that make me wonder, how many of them fools that was rushing to the mall about to make $500 or better off them sneakers they paid $180 for. Like I said before I won't be out there acting a fool over them s**** but then again the fools that's out there is the ones that's buying them to walk up and down the streets in. Buying and selling is the leading business in the world. But we all know everybody that's in them videos do not have buying and selling on they mind, them the real fools...

I never broke my neck to get anything like this.  Really, who can afford $180 for a pair of sneakers and rent ain't paid and you live in the damn ghetto.  What is wrong with black folk?

Chris Rock - Niggas Vs. Black People

Now we've got a lot of things, a lot of racism in the world right now
Whose more racist? Black people or white people?
Black people....You know why? Cause we hate black people too
Everything white people dont like about black people
Black people really dont like about black people
There some s*** goin on with black people right now
There's like a civil war goin on with black people
And there two sides....
There's black people, and there's niggas
And niggas have got to go
Everytime black people wanna have a good time
Ignorant ass n**** f*** it up
Can't do s***, cant do s***, without some ignorant ass n**** f***** it up
Cant do nothin
Cant keep a disco open more than 3 weeks
Grand opening, grand closing
Cant go to a movie the first week it comes out
Why cause niggas are shooting at the screen
What kind of ignorant s*** is that
Hay this is a good movie, this is so good i gotta bust a cap in here
Hay I love black people, but i hate niggas boy, boy i hate niggas
Boy I wish they'd let me join the Klu Klux Klan
S*** I'd do a drive-by from here to Brooklyn
I'm tired of niggas man
You cant have s*** when you around niggas
