Re: Black Friday

Then there is this.. /SMH

"Black Lives Matter and other groups plan to block white-owned Chicago stores on Black Friday to bring awareness about police shootings, economic issues and alleged racism.

Local churches, Black Lives Matter and the Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression will block stores along Michigan Avenue and prevent customers from entering stores for the second year in a row, reports Crainís Chicago Business.
A big part of the protest is to force on people that*itís important to shop at businesses that arenít owned by white men, Kimberly Veal, a leader of Black Lives Matter, said. Itís not yet known who owns the businesses that will be targeted as part of this effort."

Re: Black Friday

Amazing that this is supposedly after the day when people expressed how thankful they are for what they have and the ones they have in their lives. Then, the day after, it's "get out of my way, that large screen tv's mine!" How many large screen tv's are enough?

Re: Black Friday

I just don't understand people, either. Went to Starbucks today and that's about it, and it wasn't too crowded. But, staying away from the malls.

Re: Black Friday

Those protesters are slitting their own throats but they don't even know it. They think their lives won't be affected if those businesses close up shop and move away. Who's going to want to open up a business in Ferguson, Missouri?

Re: Black Friday

Why cannot they get into the 21st century and just order online. LOL, that is how I got all my shopping done in one day. I love Amazon prime. I guess I can get into the holiday spirit and just send abusive emails to Amazon.

I am such a tree hugger because it gives me wood!

Re: Black Friday

I have to admit, I went shopping today. I went to ****s and bought 2 cold weather gear running shirts bc I love running outside and quality cold running apparel is expensive. 1 shirt was $80 regular price.

i really wish i could be there for that. i never shop on black Friday. i WOULD shop at one of their targeted stores though. while its being targeted.

sure, they could beat me up or kill me, if they wanted. it wouldn't end well for their movement.
