it's educational

niece- why do they call it 'black friday', anyway?
sis- because stores hope not to lose money on that day which would put them 'in the black' versus being 'in the red'.
me- and also because black people are the biggest consumers and that's who is most likely to be in the store that day.
sis- that, too. 

i'm not in the store, not because im so psuedo intellectual who thinks this day is somehow racist or my participation in it will somehow "set the race back". i'm not in the store because i don't do two things: crowds and n*ggas. every black person is not a n*gga and ever n*gga ain't black. but i KNOW the stores are full of those two things and that combination plus my short temper will cause me to act ignant. since i have a future, i can't be doin' all that. happy bargain hunting to you brave ones!

LOL @ the two things you don't do. I may go to the store later, but I'm not out there 'cause I'm broke phi broke and I'm waiting on a miracle to darken my doorstep so I can buy gifts this year.

Most of my Christmas shopping will be done online though. :-)
