Most of you saw the recent insanity over the release of the new Air Jordans.  When black people are lining up around the block to spend money that they dont’ have on shoes that cost $12 to make, is there a point where we have to stop and say “enough is enough?”

In a very candid conversation on the topic, Dr. Boyce Watkins speaks with Your Black World political contributor Yvette Carnell about this phenomenon and what it means for the African American community.

The video is below:

  1. Absolutely SAD!!! Priorities totally out of line for what we need to take preference to. And Mike Jordan and the Nike corporation needs to be called out. How much has Nike or Mike contributed to the Black community? Young folks instead of rushing to buy some d**n sneaks you should be saving that $180 toward a real commodity like a home or an annuity. Invest in your future because 25 years from now you will realize you allowed yourself to be conned by Nike, Mike Jordan, and any other corporation who has schemed to get your money by pushing a product that is essentially worthless!!!

  2. Dear Dr. Watkins, I too saw the news account of Black people standing in ridiculously long lines to purchase the new Air Jordans. For some reason I could not articulate, I felt a tremendous sense of shame. I knew the newscaster was interviewing, though interviewing the two young men, was also laughing at them at the same time. While agreeing with almost all you and Yvette had to say, I must say I was terribly disappointed to hear you, Dr. Watkins, refer to these people as “n*****s”. I know how frustrating it can be to see outright stupidity–but, to call our people “n*****s”, I’m disappointed in you. You know better, or should. You owe your audience an apology.

  3. I’m shocked it costs $12 to make some Jordans. I would have thought it would have been much cheaper.

  4. We should choose our role-models carefully. Does paying $100+ become legitimized if a Black filmmaker makes the videos extolling the benefits of owning them? Think, America.
