The Way I See It!

I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.

Black Friday is NOT Racist

Racism

One of my friends told me that “Black Friday” is racist.  I told him he is seeing things that are not there and he should take off his black and white glasses.

 

This reminds me of the 2009 “The View” conversations:

 

Joy Behar: Isn’t it a little racist to call it Black Friday?

 

Whoopi Goldberg: Well, I would have called it African American Friday, but I feel that’s taking something away from it.

 

Behar: But there’s a negative connotation to it?  Or does it mean something else?

 

Goldberg: No, it’s like when you make all the money.  You’re in the black.

 

Behar: So it’s positive?

 

Goldberg: Yeah.  It’s in the black, so it’s a huge, great thing.

 

Behar: A lot of times, like blackmail is negative, black sheep.
