Joy Beharís Moral Quandary: 'Isn't it a Little Racist to Call it Black Friday?'
NewsBusters ^

Posted on 11/26/2012 7:32:56 PM PST by chessplayer

There's nothing like tuning into an episode of "The View" for a little exploration of social sensitivities in the modern American culture.

In keeping with that tradition, on Black Friday, a term used to describe the Friday following Thanksgiving, which is the beginning of the traditional Christmas shopping season, the use of the word "black" to mark this occasion was a topic of discussion on "The View" for its potential "racist" implications.

I wonder what her IQ is. No one it’s high. Joy Behar’s remark is so utterly stupid that it leaves us speechless.

How about African-American Friday?

Would that be more polite?

Joy, you twit... would it be racist to describe a dress as a “black dress” if that was its color?

So, if a company makes money, we can’t say it is “in the black?” Must it be “Green Friday?”

So I’m guessing she doesn’t know why its called “black friday”.

Most years its the first day that retailers actually make a profit, they are in the red (or negative) up until that day.

She’s dumb, ugly, and has a rotten personality. Not much goin for her.

Well, one way to solve this “racist” issue is to get rid of the word “black” and everything associated with it.

It is an accounting term, something that brain dead liberals can’t comprehend.

Being in the black, making money.
Being in the red, losing money.

Notice how she is almost groveling for Goldberg’s approval. Thats probably why she mentioned it in the first place. To show Goldberg she is a “good” honkey.

So calling Black Friday Black Friday is racist. Eating white turkey meat is racist. Peanut butter sandwiches are racist. It never ends.

Maybe she does know. Black means profit which is a dirty word in her world view (except when her pay check is at risk).

That or she’s something of a nihilist bomb-thrower who enjoys rousing the rabble over utter stupidity.

Or, maybe she’s an idiot savant who can only do bombast.

I had an old cow at one time. She went out looking for things to frighten her.

This is the same thing, finding something to holler “racism” about. And when they cannot find anything, they make something racist up.

Many years ago they decided snow was racist, so went around withing each other a “black” Christmas.

“Black”, in due time, and if they’re allowed to get away with it, will be turned into thr “B” word, just like the “N” word or the “F” word.

“Black” will be politically and ethically/morally/legally incorrect.

To appease Behar, we’ll have to change B-Friday to “Profit” Friday. But then, “profits” are a dirty word to liberals, so, we’ll have to change that too, to perhaps, Shop-till-you-drop Friday.

We can only hope that the “R” word and the “C” word don’t become outlawed too.

So going from the red (being neg revenue vs costs) to going in the black (making $$$) is racist?

F-ing stupid bimbo. If anything it is the opposite of racist.

OK I remember now.
`The View’ is the show that turned down Rachel Campos-Duffy, recently urging the GOP to cooperate in giving amnesty to tens of millions of criminalien migrants: `Selling the American Dream.’
Too stupid for The View, damn ....

Joy, you numbskull! It’s named in honor of all the black people trampled to death by discount store mobs. Don’t you know anything?

Some people are line, you know, clueless. Everyone knows this except you, Joy.

“During the week of May 29th, The View had 3.22 million viewers” from ABC Ratings Report 8 Jun, 2012.

Three and a quarter million women just soaking it up, imagining they are informed and thoughtful, and voting?

From Pew, Sept 2012:

“Regular viewers of daytime talk shows are less educated than the public as a whole. Among this group, just 19% have four year degrees, 26% have attended some college and 54% have a high school diploma or less education.”

Initially the charge of racism was because there was rampant racism. Now it’s simply to get votes, get attention or make money.

But this shows the idiot has never balanced a checkbook.
