Joy Behar is a dunce. A total bonehead. Watch what she says below and then walk with me.Vodpod videos no longer available.
“Isn’t it a little racist to call it Black Friday?”
Just step back and bask in the stupid radiating off that woman.
Just in case you don’t know, the “black” in Black Friday refers to the color of the ink used in ledgers. Black Friday is the day that stores are no longer “in the red”, meaning they have finally turned a profit. The same colors are still used by spreadsheet programs like excel. Why? Because you know the second you look at them that black means profit and red means loss.
The name of the day does not refer to any race, creed, sexual preference or religion. It is all about accounting.
Just an FYI – not everything “black” refers to people who are of African descent. Trust me on this, okay? Okay. A black hole is called a black hole because no light escapes the gravity well. It’s a great big bloody lightless thing with lots of sucking gravity, thus it’s a black hole. It’s not because the scientist who named it hates black people. Sheesh.
Is Joy Behar really that stupid? How does she not know and understand the background behind calling the day after Thanksgiving “Black Friday”?
Obviously the answers are Yes and No.
What a dolt.
