Notice @ 1:14 the white guy on bike tells everyone that he just bought multiple houses on the block while everyone is so worried about their "Js".

@. It's funny you slap when it's the truth. It's right there in the video. When he says "I own all the houses" JD comes in and says "he owns all the Js".

Buying Jordan's isn't stopping anyone from buying houses

A pair Jordan's are $200, stop acting like Jordan's cost 6 figures


You gotta get your money up if you can't afford to buy Jordan's when you're saving up for a house

People love to hide their anti-Black racism behind "stop buying Jordan's"

I'm talking about people buying 30 pairs a year 200 x 30. I'm not talking about people who have salary that can afford it. I'm talking about people that have nothing but debt getting fooled. Anti black? The sneaker community is every race. Black people is small compared to other races that are sneakerheads. The hype beast are always white, and Asian. You are taking offense to something that obviously doesn't personally target you. There is people buying every shoe to build a collection and living in a old home that could buy a home and rent it out and make money. You're telling me that every pair is cut and dry 200$? Even if so a room of 350 total sneakers could be making money. This whole everything is about race bullsh*t is getting over done. Also I'm black so how can I be anti black?

You can buy sneakers and still get a house

Plenty of Black people are anti Black, the system of white supremacy is held up by all races including the Black people like yourself who spew this anti Black propaganda

Yeah all races by sneakers but when they say "don't buy sneakers buy a house" they are talking about Black people, you can act naive if you want to but we both know the truth

If people wanna buy sneakers instead of a house, so what? Let them live their life

But the bottom line, you can buy a pair of sneakers every week and still get a house

But everyone's goal isn't to buy a house

Let people live life how they want to live life

Nobody care about what a white man has to say, you saying that in your OP shows you seek white acceptance

Old head perspective.

I've been into sneakers since '85. That's when they first pair of Jordan's released.

I believe the song was just paying homage to show peoples love of sneakers.

We all can remember when we got our first pair of Air Jordan's. That sh*t was like heaven. Even as an adult.

I've had up to 80 pair and I wore them all. I've recently sold off the majority of them because they were just sitting in the closet.

My style has changed as I've gotten older but my love of sneakers is still there.

I think it's only a problem if you're buying sneakers and not taking care of your responsibilities. Car note, rent, etc.

It’s not the price of the shoe, it’s more so the mentality
And you act like you have to save a lot to get a house
The price you pay for you shoes could prob get you into a house
Closing cost is only 5k with FHA loan on a 200k house

If you frame it with a white guy buying the houses and a black guy with the Js you can see how they are trying to use sterotypes but buying shoes isn't a Black Culture thing. Owing a shoe company isn't a Black Culture thing. It aint racist or anti black to say spending all your money on shoes means you can't afford other sh*t, its just ignorant and theres stupid ignorant people of all races.

I feel like just labeling everything racist if it infringes on any part of your lifestyle irregardless if its just derivative of what everyone else does is like the boy who cried wolf. When the real subtle racist sh*t goes down folks are gonna be sick of hearing from you.

The last pair of Air Jordans I bought was in December 1999 Air Jordans 15 and I haven't looked back.
