Fights Break Out Across America Over Latest Air Jordans Release

Tyler Durden's picture


There was a time in America when retail brawls only broke out around Thanksgiving dinner time (and increasingly earlier with every passing year). It appears that's no longer the case as the recent release of the Air Jordan 11s reveals. USA Today reports that following the release of Jordan 11 Retro Gamma Blue sneakers on Saturday, "the nation just about fell apart." One week ago, a crowd tore down a mall door just to get an advance ticket to buy the $185 Jordans. With the shoes now officially on sale, the world appears to be ending.

And it goes on: In Dallas, police reported to a fight in line Friday night. At 6 a.m. Saturday, customers tried to cut in line, causing a commotion that required police intervention, according to MyFoxDFW.

In the Bronx, two people brawled outside of a Foot Locker.

Just reread the ZH policy on racial discrimination.
Truth is dead. It was a hit and run by political correctness. BTW, did you know "politically correct" is a communist term that came about in 1920s Soviet Union?
Nevertheless, it's a savage culture and it will have to be reckoned with. If not today then tomorrow. But make no WILL have to be dealt with.

This is the prototypical behavior of a socioeconomically repressed minority within a society...any society.  I don't care if the roles are black vs. white, Arab vs. Jew,  Protestant vs. Catholic, Indian vs. European bloodline, whatever.  The underclass are "niggers", no matter the skin color.  Did you see those Venezuelan's herding out of the electronics store with the flatscreen TVs over their heads?  And ask a typical Jew in Israel what they call the lower-cass Arabs.  Go ahead, ask one.  They'll tell you a word that starts with 'n', ends with 'r', has two 'g's in the middle, and includes the vowels 'i' and 'e'.

So you few drooling mongoloids who are quick to attribute this sort of base hooliganism to race should be ashamed of yourselves, because you're just the flip side of the coin from those you despise.

These people represent lower forms of consciousness.  This sort of crass behavior is learned and passed on.  These people should be pitied, not ridiculed.  In all honesty they are only lesser representations of ourselves, for every man and woman is capable of acting like that.  So consider yourself blessed if you aren't spiritually retarded as these people seem to be, and think about how we might help to lift up our brothers and sisters in such disharmony with the universe that they would be compelled to act out in the manner shown here.

These kind of people are merely a symptom of a sick culture.  A culture in such a feverish state that it is suffering from paranoid delusions and yet so hopped up on stimulants as to exhibit extreme psychopathy that manifests in physical aggression.  And physical aggression over trivial matters at that.  For those who have seen Idiocracy, this is literally life imitating art; prophecy, perhaps self-fulfilling; maybe even syncrhomysticism.  Whatever the case, it seems we are trapped on the set and are being forced to live out the script in our reality.  Has anyone considered yelling, "CUT!"?

I am Chumabwamba.

I'd like to ask all of you a sincere question, and really be able to guage how today's white Americans feel. Please be honest: Do you really feel there is any benefit to 15% of America's population being Humanzee? Do you feel they have helped make America a better place? How about Mexicans? Asians? Jews?

Mind you, I am not trying to promote hate. In fact, on a personal level, I like all people. I've had friends in all of the above groups. I'm talking about in group form. In this case, I see little benefit in having these groups in America. But that's just me. I also see no benefit to keeping blacks, turks, and other non-European people living in Europe, during this great downturn, with 50% youth unemployment in many countries.

Thanks for your time.

Actually I understand what Chumbawumba is saying, and totally agree. When consciousness enters form, it starts at its lowest complexity, and rises through incarnations. If a pig or dog, or gorilla dies, and has gotten the full experience, it then moves on to the simplest form of human, which is the Negroid. This is one of the reasons I think all Negroids should be quarantined in Africa, and it should be cordoned off as a world wildlife preserve. Nobody should be going in there, and messing with things, stealing resources, vaccinating anyone, or doing anything, including humanitarian missions. It is natural that Africa is plagued by disease, and incompetence. As a transmigrating form of consciousness, there is not much to experience in this form of human. Learn basic shit like eat, shit, fuck, grow food, get fucked up, die. Don't really need more than 30 years to get the full black experience, and move on to the Mongloid experience which is vastly more complex. Later, after you've moved beyond 100% facination in prestige, face, money, and assorted other bullshit, you can move on to White, and associated complexities like philosophy, spiritualism, and whatnot.

I know people are going to laugh, and rightfully so, about the mess so many white people are. This is true, and many regress to lower states of consciousness.

Hahahaha! Good one! You made my day! Seriously though, I live in China. A guy downstairs from my office, just opened a Hongkong restaurant, and is doing well. He's Chinese, and had spent 14 years in Angola and Nigeria, as an accountant for different Chinese companies. Anyway, he said Merry Christmas to me last night, and I asked him how the Nigerians and Angolans celebrated Christmas. What resulted was so predictable and funny. Mind you, he's never been to America, or any western country. He said on Christmas, they sit around getting shit faced all day, interspersed with dancing in filthy surroundings. He went on to say that the blacks ALWAYS spent their entire paychecks, on alcohol, on the very first day they got paid, and would come into accounting the next day, to get a loan against the next payday. I started laughing my ass off, and he and my wife didn't understand why. I told them that despite blacks being in America for 400 years, nothing had changed. It must be built into their DNA. They were shocked and thought I was putting them on at first.

Anyway, yeah, these monkeys behavior is the fault of white people. ENOUGH! People like you, and these fucking missing-links need to be shipped the fuck back to Africa.

I spend all of my discretionary income on alcohol.

White as fuck.

It's mainly because i have nothing else to spend it on though, and i gave up on saving, the horizon on any major purchase lands me in fucked territory anyway without a major price reset and loans at the same availability.

Also, since transaction histories can be pulled to qualify loans, there's no way i could hide that without living all cash, which would also invalidate me for a loan.

Would it really be smarter If i quit drinking and dropped all that cash in the bank at negative interest? Only to possibly lose all of it anyway in a bank or currency failure?

I already know the answer, but it's getting the money back in safely, and not getting robbed. It seems safer to be poor, less to worry about. Sell me some stocks Ass hole.

And by poor i mean American poor: roof, heat, water, food, and whatever liquor i can get until i find someone else to spend money on.

There have got to be better ways, but for my situation i just don't see one.

Seriously, i just don't get people, fickle, vain, and petty is all i see.

Washington shouldn't decide who gets to eat in Kansas. Let me starve, I'll find something.

But then i get to wondering, are we already there? Is there really any more room to move? Escape velocity or not?

King James Version (KJV)

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

right to carry and 10000's of rds. lots of fun and the reward of security.

folks, very simple - be paranoid and be proud to be paranoid.

paranoia will prevent 99.9 percent of what you read about when someone was killed or toutured by savage sub-humans.

always be aware of your surroundings. worth repeating ALWAYS look and see what be a happening!!!

never, i repeat never allow a host  seat you without full view of the comings and goings.

never position your self in gathering with your backside exposed to unknowns!!!!

did i say be paranoid and leave an establishment if you fee one bit uncomfortable!!!!!

never leave home without your best friend mr kimber.

avoid places that don't allow carry OR ignore the sign.

train, simulate, play killing games and train some more.

learn to draw and fire in one motion, hesitation is a killer.

you will know when deadly force is need!!!!

always approach your car as if someone is hiding near or behind it-hand on gun in draw position.

practice, think practice and do it.

I open a retail shop every morning and run the low life scenario thru my head and keep the "draw" READY.

If you say so.  Sounded like a glowing homage to all things paranoid to me.  I can't say I will never be attacked or robbed because, you know, shit happens, but I've found wolves usually go after wolves.  Gang members shoot other gang members because they want the same "cheese", or "turf" or "Jordans" (see video above).  Two gunned down not that long ago a mile from me.   I don't want cheese or turf or Jordans for that matter and I don't hang out with folks who do.

The problem is the asymetrical nature of these thugs. They are legion and they don't have the impulse control installed to not kill you for a pair of sneakers or a cellphone. So even with all of your situational awareness and hyper vigalance are you really going to pull a gun to defend $200 bucks in your wallet or your phone? That's what I'm trying to figure out wether or not it's worth it to escalate.

Ant is right.  The US has chosen to live in fear, hand on it's metaphoric piece, and it hasn't worked out too well.  You don't need to  live in fear to be able to defend yourself, either as an individual or a nation.  It does require balls, and resolve, and some ability in risk assessment, so I guess that leaves out most.  Maybe that's why we have chosen to tread the path of fear.

That's called an ability to rationally assess risk.  You're far more likely to be struck down by a disease (or a doctor) than a thug.  Be able to handle both.

Walk unarmed through the projects and I guarantee you violent assault is far more likely than cardiovascular disease. 

A rational risk assessment includes factors such as whether or not you are walking around the country club or if you are walking around in the projects wearing a pair of nice shoes.

so i should go out with a triple-size wheelbarrow everytime i leave the house?  i've been doing it wrong then, i only go out with my sig and 2 clips.  and my other sig and 2 clips.  jeepers i better arm up.


as to the be aware at all times, have it ready to draw when you approach your parked car, be observant of where you are seated in public places, etc.  been doing that for years.  i have literally had a gun when i needed one 3 different times in my life, one of them was a simular situation to the slain kids in knoxville.  group of undesirables approached me and girl in large appartment complex at night.  as they tried to encircle us i pulled up my .357 and told them i had a problem, i was missing 1 bullet, did any of them have any?


never seen such "atheleticism" as that group hauling ass and jumping fences

"never position your self in gathering with your backside exposed to unknowns!!!!"

Reminds me of sitting in a Denny's one morning (killing time waiting for the tractor dealership to open up) and overhearing some mid+ white males talking about guns and stuff.  Most of it was, to me, "duh" shit, but, and here's the point that maps: this one guy who seemed to be the "expert" (I think he was talking about gun shows and stuff, ballistics...) was toward a far corner of the room WITH HIS BACK TO THE ROOM AND DOOR!  I could make it from that front door all the way to the back of his head before he could have extricated any weapon and got in any reasonable response position.

Anyway, I'm a fairly balanced guy so I tend to trade a bit of paranoia for enjoying life.

One thing (again, how many times do people MISS this), A DOG!  Get a good fucking DOG!  At some point you have to sleep.  And, when I'm out on the property my dog not only protects my critters it also alerts me to people and whatnot.

Never will a situation go down like you've planned.  Better to just reduce one's exposure: which is why I like being at home, on the property...  It's fun talking about stuff, though.

Good advice.   But get a real dog with a loud bark.   I had the best golden retriever who was the best behaved animal ever.  But if you would ever get close to me with mal intent he would completely freak out and loud.

I was camping in Yellowstone once and a Buffalo went through the campsite at night.  That was fun to watch.

What is a hate crime?

"Some are asking why no media outcry over murders in which victims were white and defendants are black"

"Country music star Charlie Daniels, who lives 150 miles from Knoxville, contrasted scant coverage of the Christian-Newsom murders with the national media frenzy that erupted last year when a black woman [falsely] accused three white members of the Duke University lacrosse team of raping her at a party."

"'If this wasn't a hate crime, then I don't know how you would define a hate crime,' said Mary Newsom, Christopher's mother. 'It may have started out as a carjacking, but what it developed into was blacks hating whites. To do the things they did, they would have to hate them to do that.'"

The Gruesome Story of a Murdered Tennessee Couple You May Have Never Heard – But That You Will Never Forget

"[Christopher Newsom] was gagged with a sock in his mouth, his ankles were bound with his own belt, his hands were tied behind his back, his face was covered with a bandana and his head covered with a sweatshirt that his five assailants had tied around his neck with shoestrings."

"He was then violently raped with an object and beaten."

"'One can only imagine the horror Christopher experienced as he was then forced to walk barefoot to the nearby railroad tracks, where he was shot in the neck in the back,' Beck said solemnly. 'But the shots didn’t kill him — he fell to the ground and was paralyzed.'"

"'That’s when the assailants stood over him, placed the gun against his head and fired, killing him execution style,' he added. Newsom was shot a total of three times."

"But not even that was enough. The attackers then poured gasoline on his body and set him on fire."

"[Channon Christian] was forced into a back room of the house where she was hog-tied with a strips of fabric from a bedding set. She was brutally raped 'in every possible way imaginable' for several hours as the assailants beat her viciously with several objects, including a broken chair leg."

"By the time Christian was taken into the living room, the five attackers realized they had left their DNA on their victim. In an attempt to cover their tracks, they poured bleach down her throat and on her body before they wrapped her body in black garbage bags and covered her head in a plastic grocery bag."

"'She was then placed in a garbage can in the kitchen of the house — all of this while she was still alive,' Beck noted."

"'Channon Christian’s last minutes on earth were spent slowly suffocating in a garbage can after she had been savagely beaten and raped for hours,' he added."

this is a sick crime.  absolutely disgusting.  does it really take a stretch of the imagination to wonder why the media decided not to go 24x7 coverage on this?

that's what the internet is for, my friend.  


besides, this crime goes beyond the simplistic, 2-dimensional black/white narrative.  you can be a person of any color and hate someone else without going this far.  what separates the thought from the action is psychopathy.  

and, there are plenty of sick white dudes who have pulled some heinous rape/murder/cannibalistic acts:

The jewish media uses selective reporting to perpetuate the lie that all serial killers are White men.

Because of jewish censorship, it's not easy to find pictures of the assailants, but here is a list of some black serial killers.

John Floyd Thomas, Jr. (picture)

Arrest of Suspected Southland Strangler Serial Killer

"Los Angeles Police Department Robbery Homicide Detectives have announced the arrest of a 72-year-old man who has been positively linked to two LAPD Cold Case homicides. The suspect, John Floyd Thomas Jr., is also linked by DNA evidence to murders being investigated by the Inglewood Police Department and Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. Additionally, he is suspected in as many as thirty murders and scores of rapes occurring in the Southland during the 1970's and 1980's."

Matthew Emmanuel Macon (picture)

Michigan serial killing suspect identified

"A prison parolee and sex offender was identified as the man suspected of killing five women in the city in a little more than a month, and he could face charges in a sixth death from 2004, authorities said Friday."

"Murder and assault charges were being pursued against Matthew Emmanuel Macon, 27, of Lansing, who was paroled from state prison June 26, said Police Chief Mark Alley."

"Macon is not listed on the state's public sex offender registry... [because he's black]."

Mukosi Mulaudzi (picture)

Mulaudzi receives 11 life sentences and 200 years imprisonment!

"Mulaudzi started a horrifying criminal career, perfecting the art by improving on his previous crimes, until he 'graduated' in 1991, when he was convicted on 20 serious counts, two of which were murder."

"He did not only steal from his victims, but also raped and killed them."

"His latest caper after escaping from prison saw him committing more than 20 serious crimes, which included rape, theft, robbery and murder. He was charged on 28 counts, but two were withdrawn before the trial could start."

"Mulaudzi brutally murdered women and children with an axe and an iron rod in the Venda area between 2004 and 2006" (Source).

Chester Dewayne Turner (picture)

Serial Killer Identified Through DNA Technology

"Detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department’s Cold Case Unit of Robbery-Homicide Division will be presenting to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office for filing, a case involving the most prolific serial killer ever identified in the history of the City of Los Angeles."

"Turner has been connected, through DNA, to 13 murders [and rapes, including two fetuses] that occurred in the City of Los Angeles between 1987 and 1998. Eleven of these murders took place in a four-block wide corridor that ran on either side of Figueroa Street between Gage Avenue and 108th Street."

Coral Eugene Watts (picture)

Victims of Coral Eugene Watts

A Deal With the Devil

"'What's amazing to me is everybody in America has heard of a Ted Bundy, a John Wayne Gacy, Jeffrey Dahmer. But when you mention the name of Coral Eugene Watts, 99.99 percent of the public has no clue who you're talking about,' says Andy Kahan, who is hoping to change that."

"It took Watts more than a week to describe how he had stalked and killed each of his victims -- and he led investigators to three shallow graves."

"At one point, Watts said he was willing to confess to 22 murders in Michigan, and a call went out to detectives like Bunten in Ann Arbor."

"I said, 'Coral, I haven't got enough fingers and toes to count the number of people you've killed, have I? And he looked around the room and said, 'There's not enough fingers and toes in this room.'"

"There were four people in the room, which would mean 80 victims."

"Because Watts had been given immunity back in 1982, there was nothing Texas could do to keep Watts in prison."

"Hanger says there are 'roughly 90 cases we still consider him a suspect on.'"

just because there are some very talented businessmen, who happen to be jewish, running a majority of the media complex doesn't mean it's "the jewish media".

one of the big moguls, ted turner, isn't jewish.

with your logic, we should start calling the carbon-based energy complex: "the conservate, white, christian, sometimes racist, carbon-based energy complex"


i'm aware that the statistical trend for serial killers started tilting from more whites vs. blacks to more blacks vs. whites since the 90s:

however, the demographic profile of the serial killer is still at least 68% white and at least 88% male: 


yes, there are serial killers motivated by hate towards another race:


the point remains that psychopathy/socipathy is an equal opportunity employer, regardless of a person being black, white, brown, red, yellow, jewish, christian, muslim, gay, hetero, or whatever.  

stop being fodder of certain interest groups and think for yourself by not looking on the surface of things and instead looking deeper to the root causes.

Most likely the Nazis wiped out 5,291,000 Jews, 258,000 Gypsies, 10,547,000 Slavs, and 220,000 homosexuals. They also "euthanized" 173,500 handicapped Germans. Then in repression, terrorism, reprisals, and other cold-blooded killings done to impose and maintain their rule throughout Europe, the Nazis murdered more millions including French, Dutch, Serbs, Slovenes, Czechs, and others. In total, they likely annihilated 20,946,000 human beings.

I kind of beg to differ on this one...

The can of worms opened up with "go forth and multiply" (at some point the finite planet would push back on this).  Problem compounded when the Phonecians "discovered" "interest:" at least, however, it was based on something tangible (calves born in transit), and, if we'd stuck to it perhaps we'd be in better shape today.  And then fractional reserve banking... (now compounded with hand-swirls, derivatives and shit).
