Every Friday after Thanksgiving, the sentiment of the American people quickly transforms from thankfulness to selfishness. We all sit at the dinner table giving thanks, only to trample each other in Walmart the next day. The new iPhone, 50 inch flatscreen TV’s, and video game deals fuel our unnecessary need for consumption. Since 2006, there have been 102 injuries and 9 deaths due to Black Friday.

The name Black Friday actually comes from the dark bruises many shoppers suffer from during this American pastime. This year shoppers gave up sleep and looked like absolute trash as they crawled to the department stores.  In my opinion I would not give up my beauty sleep to save thirty percent on newfangled gadgets.

Parents were using their children as battering rams to get past the crowds in the stores. Others used clubs to beat clerks for higher discounts. 30 year old men wore diapers so they could stay in line for hours; the inconvenience of going to the restroom would never stop them.

Here is an actual image of shoppers on Black Friday in Atlanta:

Black Friday is a dark holiday, where the true colors of American consumption emerge.

But, it doesn’t stop here! We move along to Cyber Monday, where the shoppers finish the battles they started on Friday.
