Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance!!!!

Okay, so in light of the media crazed Adidas “shackle” shoe (which is a bit hilarious to me) …I’ve heard some pretty funny debates…..my favorite is that black people wear “cotton” t-shirts LMBO!!!

I don’t believe it was insensitive at all…..I believe that it was a slaves of fashion kinda concept if you ask me!

They are ridiculously ridiculous to me just for the fact that they are……ridiculous…but hell so are skinny jeans on men…which has snatched and raped the black communities senseless and nobody is complaining about that foolishness……

Don’t get me wrong I am a proud African-American woman…but my race is a damn embarrassment at times…like seriously…y’all want to protest a damn sneaker when there is soooooo many other political and social warfares that we could be protesting about!!!

For instance, why in the hell haven’t anyone protested Love & Hip Hop or any other movies, tv shows, clothing lines that portray us to be ignorant, loud, boisterous, and rude! Why not protest red, orange and green weave?

C’mon y’all…..this argument is null and void in my book….I have always been a huge fan of Adidas and I will continue to support their product!

  1. This is the first time I’m hearing about this story.

    I’m somewhere in between, I think just the idea of the sneakers should have been enough for them to scrap the idea, it should’ve never gotten to production. It really makes me wonder whether or not the company as a whole has a racist spirit so to speak. On the other hand I agree with you when you question why hasn’t “Love & Hip Hop” or weaves, etc been protested etc. I also don’t see the sneaker issue as that big of a deal.

    It’s funny, I don’t think that Blacks need to act or look like non-whites, but some things that black people hold onto as part of their “black identification” is complete insanity.
