What Black Friday Says About America
By Reginald Kaigler (DEMCAD)
Isn't it sad that after Americans stuff themselves with Thanksgiving dinner, they humiliate themselves and one another by fighting over cheap junk at retail stores. Traditionally, this commercial event would happen the day after Thanksgiving. But in recently retailers have become more desperate for sales so they are opening up earlier. Last year, Walmart opened at 10pm. This year impulse than an actually decision. Like every year, the Black Friday crowds were violent and shameful all across the nation. Grown men and women pushing and shoveling each other to get the best deal on electronics and toys.
This year, a shopper was robbed outside of Best Buy in Myrtle Beach. Two people were shot outside of a Walmart in Florida.

The battle of the herd was recorded when growups and teens pushed and shoved for some smart phones.
There was a massive mob fight among teenagers at Woodland Mall. The Kentwood Police took two teens into custody. Another shopper maced security guards

One of the most bizarre sights was watching teenage girls scream and push each other outside a Victoria's Secret store on Black Friday. Why does 16 year old need lingerie? Boys don't care about that crap. Attention: Ladies of all ages. Guys don't care. Either your hot or your not. Victoria Secret isn't going to make a difference.
What's happening in America is a sick and corrupt education of the youth. Not only are supposedly grown up men and women making fools of themselves on Black Friday, but they are teaching their children to do the same. I don't have a problem with people shopping on Black Friday, but when you start hurting other human beings to get this crap, you lose my respect.
