    I do not think Black Friday is connected in anyway to slavery.

    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.

    Umm, throughout history? The earliest use of the term "Black Friday" referring to the day after Thanksgiving occurs in 1951.
