#301. Braving the End of the Line

Call it the Rosa Parks syndrome, but Black people hate to wait at the back of anything, be it a bus or a line.

With Black Friday approaching quickly, the fear of people being trampled to death as Black people fight for the merchandise marked down to 70-80 percent off its original price, is percolating throughout every department store and especially Wal-Mart.

Remember, it was last year that a poor Wal-Mart greeter was greeted with an untimely visit by the Grim-Reaper as Black people trampled him to death:

"A stampede of shoppers in a Valley Stream Wal-Mart on Friday morning left one worker dead and at least three patrons injured after an impatient crowd broke down the store doors and trampled the seasonal employee, Nassau police said.

Jdimytai Damour of Jamaica, Queens, was pushed to the ground by the 2,000-plus crowd just before 5 a.m. as management was preparing to open the store, which is located across from the main Green Acres Mall building. Hundreds stepped over, around and on the 34-year-old worker as they rushed into the store.

"This crowd was out of control," said Nassau Police Det. Lt. Michael Fleming, whose squad is investigating.

"Nobody was trying to help him," said shopper Nakea Augustine, who was in the line. "They were rushing in the store, rushing, rushing, rushing."
It makes you wonder who might be the ultimate PeopleofWalMart.com, for Black people fit one of the molds of Wal-Mart core demographic perfectly:
Wal-Mart has gone to great lengths to define and identify each category of shopper:

Price-Value - The poorest among us. Loyal to Wal-Mart, to a fault. Primarily young, rural, Baptist women. Uneducated beyond high-school. More worried and in poorer health than average. Watches Lifetime and ABC Family. Reads Better Homes & Gardens. Drives a used car which he/she still owes money on.

Brand Aspirational - His/Her image does not fit with the reality of his/her economic situation. Often a racial minority. Less technologically savvy than other demographics. Sports oriented, with a skew towards the NFL. Watches Fox Sports and reads automotive, athletic and fitness magazines.

Price-Sensitive Affluent - Highest income category. White, male, over age 45, highly educated. Very technologically savvy. Will compare products on the internet then purchase them for a better price in a retail store. Watches PBS and The History Channel. Reads National Geographic. Owns a completely paid for vehicle that is a newer model and was new when purchased."
So, what does waiting in line have to do with Black people you ask? Everything. Just look at the strange case of Heather Ellis and Wal-Mart:
"Nearly three years after Heather Ellis switched checkout lines at a southeast Missouri store and touched off what she calls a racially charged dispute with white customers and authorities, the young black schoolteacher faces a trial that could send her to prison for 15 years.

Witnesses have told authorities that Ellis cut in front of waiting customers at the Walmart in Kennett on Jan. 6, 2007, shoved merchandise already placed on a conveyor belt out of the way, and became belligerent when confronted, according to court filings.

Ellis maintains she was merely joining her cousin, whose checkout line was moving more quickly. She claimed in a written complaint to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People that she was then pushed by a white customer, hassled by store employees, called racial slurs and physically mistreated by Kennett police officers.

Police say in court documents that Ellis refused requests to calm down and leave the property, allegedly kicking one's shin and splitting another's lip while resisting arrest. Her trial on charges of assaulting police officers, resisting arrest and disturbing the peace begins Wednesday in Dunklin County Circuit Court. Syracuse, N.Y.-based Your Black World Coalition is organizing a Monday rally in Kennett.

A few choice quotes from the story:
"What a shame the system can destroy a young person's future like this because of bad cops," Ellis wrote to the NAACP in April.
Let's be honest: We live in a Black world now, so Ellis is obviously the good guy in this situation that only Wal-Mart could play host too, for centuries from now, historians will excavate these stores around the remains of the United States of America and postulate that these mega-buildings were holy ground for 21st century boobs.

Since Wal-Mart does have 8,000 stores worldwide, these future historians will speculate as to the religious meanings of these massive structures and the cult that was worshiped in the many doors were the elderly once greeted every customer with a happy smile.

In the new America, Black people shouldn't have to wait in the back of the line for anything, let alone a minor purchase of goods at Wal-Mart.

Interestingly, two videos showcase what happens to people when they dare maintain that order and civility be maintained and that importance of lines be established and accepted to ensure that civilization be perpetuated.

For without lines, man is but an animal, rushing into the wilderness of life - leaving order behind - and descending into an endless sea of chaos where the line for waiting is but remembrance of things once done.

Stuff Black People Don't Like includes braving the end of the line, for Rosa Parks ended Black people sitting in the back of the bus once and for all. This, naturally, carried over into every facet of life, for Black people never wait at the end of US Post Office lines, movie lines, amusement park lines, etc., for this would mean the rule of civility applies to them.

As the two videos below show, they do not, and to even consider rules applying to Black people is grounds for being a racist.

After all, if someone objects to a Black person cutting in front of them, then the easy and simple explanation for their behavior is that they are insensitive and a racist.

A problem exists though, for she failed to do one crucial thing that exacerbated the situation, cooperate with the police, and this left her in the situation she faces now:
"Police say in court documents that Ellis refused requests to calm down and leave the property, allegedly kicking one's shin and splitting another's lip. Her trial on charges of assaulting police officers, resisting arrest and disturbing the peace begins Wednesday in Dunklin County Circuit Court."
So remember, waiting in line can save you 10-15 years of your life.

As a man (of any race), I felt ashamed watching the second video. To stand by and watch someone else be beaten by anyone like that and not do anything is disgraceful. What has the liberal media done to the American male to make us so effeminate and cowed? And worst of all, how did we let it happen?

all too believable. unfortunately, the 300 lb felon and his line-cutting girlfriend were not aware of the heather ellis defense. had they alleged the white man to have called them a racial slur, the NAACP would have held a rally in their honor and started a fund to pay for their legal defense. their minister could invoke MLK and a disingenuous white liberal on CNN could have railed against the fallacy of the charges brought against them. clearly, there is more progress to be made to weed out racism in the legal system.

Bottom line: when a black gets aggressive you must immediately get back in their face (but be sure to stay out of sucker punch/elbow range, their favorite trick) or they'll see you as a weakling. They don't understand civility and white people's dislike of actually fighting, kinda barbaric for public behavior and all. If they don't back down you must go full bore russian commando on their ass. It's a shame society has come to this but it's the lowest common denominator thing again. When this woman started poking this guys face with her nails he should have knocked her out because it was already going into fight mode for her. The cowards just watching should not count themselves worthy to stand among men. We must bring down the ape!

I lived in Long Beach,CA and witness black people cutting in line from Wal-mart to the liquer store on the corner with no reguard over who was there first just the "u bess b gettin out mi face" attitude when confronted over their rudeness. Were Jim Crow laws that bad! I just came to shop not have a race war!

"I felt ashamed watching the second video"

Amen, Mr 'not sure of your race'. That room was full of white douches so enthralled by the ape sighting that they didn't do anything. White men need to realize the true behavior of the negroid species is far from what is seen in sitcoms.

They might not like waiting in line but negroid men LOVE the sucker punch. If just one man had helped, the guy could have recovered from the stun of that sucker punch. I guess it's everyman for himself these days in Akron, Ohio.

Good for me I don't live in Akron. I have loyalty for my brothers and I know what the negroid man is worth. That's why people call me racist, because I actually care about White people.

I wonder how many groids will get trambpled in this year of Obama holiday season?

I have to agree with some of the above posters. Blacks expect whites to be intimidated and back down. In my 7 1/2 years in the Army, I could not count how many times I had to have a staring contest with a negro. DO NOT back down. Blacks have one weapon, the (usually right hand) sucker punch. Beyond that, they cannot fight, and they CANNOT wrestle. If you do have to fight a negro, watch the wild right hand, take them down, and do what you will.

I'm not a badass, or a keyboard commando. I'm just a White Man who is fed up.

yes, the second video is not good. Remember however, if the other men had attempted to help the victim, they would have been accused of a hate crime....still no excuse to not help though. Why is this not classified as a hate crime?. How about 13% population get 13% of the land, and let them live and govern themselves in that land (how long would it take them to turn that land into the most backward, dangerous and undesirable place to live in the whole world??). It would naturally be a criminal offense for them to enter the white and hispanic lands...capital offense even?

Ah, you forgot the video of the grown nog punching out a teenage girl after he cut in front of her at McDonalds! That ones a classic.

The 7:14 comment is dead on. So many commenters of that second video(here and on youtube) have wondered why a room full of white men wouldn't help one of their own being pummeled by that single-digit-IQ beast. Most claim cowardice and that may be a part.

But my own first thought in that situation would not be fear of being physically hurt, but fear of being prosecuted for a hate crime if I "attacked" that black animal, fear of being thrown in some infernal black prison for 20+ years and fear of having my children subjected to a Jesse Jackson media frenzy focused on the "reprehensible, racist, violence" of their father.

We are emasculated indeed, though not for the reason many seem to think.

I carry a concealed firearm. This means that I hope like Hell to avoid confrontations. That said, if someone slugged me like that, I'd be 100 percent justified in shooting him. Punches can kill from a thug like this guy, but a "boxer" can be defeated by someone with the sense to carry and use a lawful gun (.40 S&W or better). That woman should have been ordered out of the store immediately by those seven men for her verbal abuse. She must have been on crack.
