This right here is what keeps our community at the bottom. Just when we’re making strides to overcome stereotypes, stuff like this reinforces them.
MIAMI, FLORIDA — This is the most trifling display of low-mental vibration ever witnessed.
Via Facebook, maybe Terri Lane says it best.
“You see why other races think less of us. Y’all cannot even weather a storm without planning your next heist. Smdh.”
Lane is exactly right.
HAVEN’T SEEN THE VIDEO YET?
According to WSVN News, this video shows these Miami residents looting what looks to be a local Footlocker shoe store.
Shoes? Shoes!? Are you f**king kidding me!??!
BUT WAIT! GET A LOAD OF THIS!
Not only are these looters stealing in unity — something we can’t seem to get our community to agree on — but they also have their vehicles’ license plates clearly visible for authorities to see.
And surely, trust that they’ve just thrown their lives away for some kicks. These folks are about to do some petty time for some petty crime.

This isn’t about survival or hunger. It’s not like they were stealing food for their loved ones or trying to feed their kids during the hurricane.
These were just thieves making the rest of us take the heat — thieves, whose mental capacities were focused on … … shoes.
DURING A HURRICANE.
Just let that sink in, please.

It’s a poor and inaccurate reflection of who we are as a people, especially in times of trouble and calamity.
Yet, as always, let us know your thoughts. If you have any comments regarding the despicable video, share them with us via our Facebook page.
