Nov 29, 2014 – Slavery: Group Condemns Black Friday, Claims Slave Traders Sold Blacks A Day After Thanksgiving
A group has condemned Black Friday for its historical root in slavery.
Black Friday is a day after thanksgiving where American retailers and consumers connect.
Retailers offers products at discount prices while shoppers storm stores across the country looking for sales.
It has extended to Europe, Britain and some parts of Africa.
Many Online retailers too have joined the move.
A group is condemning Black Friday for its connection to slavery.
The group says a day after Thanksgiving, slave traders would sell blacks for a discount to assist farmers with winter.
They mostly hire black slaves to cut and stack firewood and winter proofing materials.
“This was the day after Thanksgiving when slave traders would sell slaves for a discount to assist plantation owners with more helpers for the upcoming winter (for cutting and stacking fire wood, winter proofing etc.), hence the name”.
Now this is serious.
