Is Black Friday racist? These college students say it is

StaffRebel Columnist

With Black Lives Matter supporters protesting Black Friday due to 'racism', college students were asked whether or not they agree.

Reporter Lee Ann McAdoo asked students in Austin, Texas for their thoughts. While some agreed with the Black Lives Matter protesters, others, such as one man, simply answered 'not really'.

“There should definitely be a new name for it... I wouldn't go with colour things because that's still race-implied, I guess,” one blonde girl said.

One black student interviewed, however, appeared to be the most neutral to the supposed racial connotations to Black Friday. “We should do facts over feelings first,” he said. In reference to the Black Friday protesters he adds, “if they don't know what they're talking about then...” he proceeds to roll his eyes.

Dear Rebels.
We need an article on the Nanny State proliferation into every tom dick and harry’s business model.

Every day people are using points cards, or computers that track their preferences, what thing they looked at last. Just now, Home Depot told me what I was viewing last, even though I delete my cookies etc. and why on earth do we actually have to have cookies. I don’t drink milk!..
Soon they are going to put electronics in the toilets to monitor your flushing, and hook it to the internet. Heck rather than the kids banging at the door when you are in the washroom, Home Depot will because it tracked your flushes and figures you are out of toilet paper, offering you a list of options priority post or as they say, “just in time”

We need to put a stop to all this tracking and socialist engineering. Lets face it, points cards are intentionally taxing your purchases to then re-locate that money and force other purchases. One bying gas, all of a sudden can be getting discounts on toilet paper. And all of it tracked.

Sorry I want my freedom back.

Nothing says racist like watching two blacks punch each other’s lights for the last LCD TV.

Well, that’s not just racist – it’s reality, too.

Sorry Benjamin – Black Friday is in reference to the Stock Market crash of 1869. Once the recession was behind them, they started to commemorate the day and their better fortunes with sales.

Wow, that was scary to watch. We need deprogrammers to get a hold of these young people and get their heads straight. Their behavior was almost cult like. They drank the P.C. koolaid. There is no such thing as critical thinking in colleges and universities these days. They are not taught how to think, only what to think. And if they don’t toe the line, they are ostracized by their peers. It’s like a politically correct mob mentality. They can’t even take a joke any more. They have been programmed to be humourless, taking imaginary offense at just about anything, no matter how trivial. Just ask Jerry Seinfeld or Chris Rock. Universities are too P.C. for them to perform their acts. I fear for the future.

buckwheat is making me a racist.

Of course it is racist.

After all nearly every person who is under 30 and was interviewed said it was.

So if we call it yellow Friday do the Chinese and Japs get pissed off?

Literally anytime the word or colour black is now mentioned some stupid idiot claims racism.

So why fight it.

I could solve the problem though – how about we load up all the blacks and throw in the islamics for good measure and send them back to Africa.

Let them enjoy a country or continent built by blacks – the entire continent is almost a complete shit hole – and the rule of law is awesome and the medical facilities are even better and the sewage and water treatment plants are amazing and more and more …….

There are not many countries run by blacks or islamics that people want to stay in – most want the hell out. In fact is there even one black run country that does not have a stream of folks trying to get out? Is there even one islamic country that is at peace and is happy?

Seems blacks and slammers run together – might be a good idea to toss them all. Could they survive without welfare? We ship 100’s of billions annually to Africa – is that racist as well?

Is aid welfare?

Of course it is but we cannot say that can we?

Funny how most of them want to go to the US of A – you know – that racist country.

I suppose that United Negro College Fund is racist as well – after all no whites get a kick at that one.

How about the black movie actors awards?

Seen any white in that one?

Tired of the BS – to the point I refuse to acknowledge anyone who uses the word racist – other than to say “Eff Off”


Those Chicago news videos of black Friday shopping I saw today sure did not have a lot of white folk in them – and they were all scrambling for “stuff” in the stores.

Is it racist for blacks to shop in stores that whites cannot be found in?

Rant is almost over.

How about we simply call it whining, welfare collecting, uneducated, drug dealer shopping Friday and leave it at that.

I’m not even sure where this snopes like urban legend came from. It’s so absurd.

These crybullies do not realize stupid they make themselves look…

You know what, enough of this bull roar. Call it white Friday for all I care. This question should never have been asked because it opens the door for stupid people to give stupid answers like the girl who said she didn’t know where her opinion stands on it.. It’s all about the deals people, get over yourselves. I was out and about today shopping among a variety of races and no one seemed to be offended with getting a good deal. I wonder if some of these people interviewed know how really ridiculous they sound. Likely not..

Good thing we have Boxing day instead.

THAT’S BECAUSE THOSE STUDENTS ARE STUPID. The term “Black” in “Black Friday” refers to the change in color of INK in the retailer’s profit ledgers that turns from red to black on the Friday after Thanksgiving as Christmas shoppers flood the retail stores.

Call it fabricated stampede day! I don’t care and don’t participate … I avoid malls on “sale” days.
commented 2015-11-27 16:33:49 -0500
Now I am in trouble. I drink my coffee black. Oh no, what do I do? I am 56 and I understand RED ink and BLACK ink. We were taught this in school way back when. The problem with today’s public is that they are ignorant and uneducated.
commented 2015-11-27 16:19:25 -0500
What if the power went off on black Friday and we ended up in a blackout?
What if we called it gray Friday, would the aliens be offended ?
How about stampede Friday ? would animal rights groups be offended ?
Maybe orange Friday ? oh wait, vegans would be offended !! how about , Nonracial, Colorless,Politically Correct Day After Thursday Day.

I think maybe the interviewer doesn’t really know why it’s called “Black Friday”.
commented 2015-11-27 16:09:07 -0500
What about the Dallas Cowboys? Aren’t Cowboys everywhere being offended?

Black Friday is for sales to bring companies from being in the red (nothing to do with native people) into the black (positive/profit). Simply to boost sales.

I can just see it now, renaming it White Friday and the accompanying outrage. Or Yellow Friday with again, outrage. Maybe Green Friday (rolling in the greenbacks) but then environmentalist will go, as usual, go crazy.

The Politically Correct were demanding that McGill’s football team stop being called Redmen because it was offensive to natives. Did they bother looking at the colour of McGill’s team uniforms? Red. McGill’s colour? Red. McGill’s coat of arms? Red. What would be a better name: McGill Male Footballers in Red Uniforms"?

Some people will find offence where none is intended.

Infowars reporter. Pretty. That’s all I have to say.

What about White people, are we not a Race? Everyone who is not white, has some kind of organization they can complain to about discrimination. What about us Honkers, I guess we are just the Racist’s.

It is about time us Whitey’s stood up and stated our part. White people were the founders of Canada, as we know it, but we have to sacrifice every thing. Where is Happy Christmas and what happened to Santa Clause. Where has Christmas gone? Oh, I forgot, we now have a lot of Brown skinned people here, who do not approve of Christianity, better not to upset them, they may slit our throats.

Do not White people count when it comes to racial equality.

About 50 years ago, if someone asked you such a question, they would wonder what you’re smoking! Any color is offensive. Ban color! All distinctions need to be banned.

The day is coming and indeed is not far off when ….just like spelling and grammer checks….political correcting will be automated on every text editing device and the option not to use it will not be there.
commented 2015-11-27 14:06:19 -0500
Just stop talking to the always offended crowd. What a generation of complainers, they can’t seem to get out of bed without complaining about some perceived offense.

“How about the hysterical, infantile and perpetually offended sjw’s wad up their politically correct BS and forcefully shove it up any bodily orifice of their choosing”

Now that is a good idea!

‘Black’ friday is when retail stores historically move from the ‘red’ (not making money or debt) financially into the ‘black’ (making money or profit) financially
