Do I have to find another Sneaker?

And, just to be extra safe, Pepe says he'll post the announcement in Ebonics as well.

This morning, this statement below was posted on social media.


A white supremacist blogger (Pepe the Frog) and self-described internet troll has declared New Balance sneakers (NB) "the official shoes of White people" and encouraged his readers to buy them "so we will be able to recognize one another by our sportswear."



I am not a "white supremacist", and don't want to be associated with them, damn, I really don't want to have to find another sneaker brand. Hope that stupid blog doesn't catch on!

What brand do you wear, if it's NB will you still wear them?

My New Balances are a size too big so no. And anyway I prefer Reeboks.

Fuck It, I paid $165 for my NB's maybe that's why they're so comfortable, I'm wearing them, I'll be damned if I'm going to through them away!

Oh yeah, and I am White, so . . . .

My high heels are probably worse for my knees. My Reeboks have never given me knee problems.

My big stomach has never caused me knee problems either. I get leg cramps every once in awhile but that's probably due to my largely sedentary state or my possible untreated diabetes(I was pre-diabetic when I last went to see a doctor 2-3 years ago).

Clang, Clang, Clang, that's nothing to mess around with. Left untreated it can cause all kinds of issues. Go to the Dr.! 16

But...I'm immortal(or immoral. I always get those two words confused.Smiley_emoticons_biggrin). Seriously. Back last December when I had an anxiety attack and they thought it was related to low blood sugar they tested my blood sugar and found it normal even though all I had eaten that morning was leftover Chinese rice.

never thought about it but they may indeed be the sneaks for white people, by default at least since I can't recall any black filks wearing them.
More research may be needed
