If people waiting for the other stuff get violent, then it deserves the same attention. The worship of consumer goods is ridiculous, but the violence surrounding the Air Jordans makes the whole thing even worse.

IMO this is a sign of the sickness at the soul of our society. These aren't isolated cases. The "Christmas" season seems to always begin with some sort of violence against other people on Black Friday to grab hold of some stupid disposable consumer good. This has been going on for years, but it seems to be getting worse. It's all part of the same piece with the trash that's on TV, the breakdown of our families, etc.

Why the change of heart?
I respect their business savvy also. It's my fault that I didn't get the shoes... I cant blame people that beat me to the line...Just kinda upset about it.

I'm not sure about this, but I would guess Nike will probably release the black/red colorway (the ones MJ wore in the '97 Finals) of the Air Jordan 11's and it will for sure be a lot worse on release day Xmas 2012 than it was this year. Nike knows what they're doing.

Scarily true.

There's a rather interesting Sci Fi book called Jennifer Government Jennifer Government | by Max Barry that was eerily prophetic. Makes me wonder what else the author nailed.

Not sure anyone actually reads books anymore though...

LOL I do not know but it is not about race when I used to worked for Old Navy and the ones that were chocking and hitting each other and just fighting over a 1 dollar fliplops were white. We had to called the police.

How can everyone be hating on Jordan shoes when they aren't all that bad? I find them comfortable and trendy. If you wear them with some nice jeans and a button up shirt, you won't look too far from dressed up. One of my friends wore solid white Jordans to an interview and landed a job.

I would wear the concords with a tuxedo with no problem. Those shoes look classy.
