Ya n*ggas is way to sensitive. Be offended when it's actually racist or intended to be offensive. Not just cus you think you should be offended.

God people are way too sensitive. And "black slaves," I guess all other enslaved people don't get to be offended. I'm actually only offended that black people act like they have some exclusivity to slavery
I think black people would've rather been free than have a monopoly on slavery. But you goin on with being offended.

Making a reference to slavery period is corny and foolish for a brand such as Adidas. This is a major shoe company here.

Blacks taught White people everything they knew, about slavery, civilization and how to get to The Americas. Eventually, they turned it around on us, based on our skin color. Around 1670 it became illegal for Blacks to own white slaves. Clearly there was an agenda in place, that white people still won't acknowledge today.

And when the Moors taught the Europeans how to enslave people for profit, guess who they tried it on first? Other Europeans! So ask yourselves, who are the slaves in America today?

This s*** is unacceptable. I dont care if "black" people werent the only ones that were slaves, when i see these shoes I think of slavery and then me being African thinks of slavery against black people.

Its a free country, so ya can wear what ya want, but im for sure as hell wont be touching these ever, and if i kno you and i see you wearing these ima clown you.

Wow, Boxden is full of Uncle Tom punks scared to death to even call out something as blatant as the racial undertone behind this shoe. It's like that fast food joint where they had Mary J Blige singing about chicken....some of y'all really think this is cool?.......I guess y'all are the same people who f!ght to call your brother a n*gga. I guess that's how y'all want them to see you......enjoy
