They then bought r imported fresh black slaves. Many people rushed and flocked this livestock to capitalize on these cheap slaves. Then there is the other story about Black and red ink in the accountants book. Red meant loss and Black ink meant profit. What is your take?

LOL...yes..anything for a sale
I do not think Black Friday is connected in anyway to slavery.
If you follow the history or trend of words that start with black....it is always nothing good.
Black Listed so why should Black Friday be any different
You missed that the color black is the aggregate of every other color, the one that contains all. :) If you follow the history of the word green it is associated with monsters, jealousy, and horrors, even money. Maybe it should be green Friday!
Thank you Pauls for explaining that. Anyone that would even think that has to have a screw loose. And, to bring it up at a time like this is only adding fuel to the fires that are already burning. That is something we don't need.
Clive willingly admits that he enjoys stirring up unrest and controversy just for $-its & giggles......which of course we all know isn't the least bit funny! Especially now in the somber state of many American minds.
Questions are meant to be asked. If you get hysterical and jittery about sensitive issues they will never get resolved? This question as been going around the internet and some even calling on a boycott.
Clive, that is exactly why it shouldn't be spread any more.
OH stop it! Black does not always refer 2 something bad! Black cars R shiny & rich-looking, black shoes R the most popular shoe color, Black hair is the shiniest, Black Comedy is the funniest! Blk ink is most proper. Don't B so damned negative!
Umm, throughout history? The earliest use of the term "Black Friday" referring to the day after Thanksgiving occurs in 1951.
