Boycott Black Friday!

Radio host rallies blacks for Friday boycott
By Eliott C. McLaughlin, CNN
Radio host and organizer Warren Ballentine hopes a "national blackout" of businesses will send Washington a message that blacks are fed up with racism and injustice, and he rejects criticism that his campaign is un-American.
… The inspirations for the boycott are many: a flurry of nooses hung in public places; the case of six teens charged as adults with attempted murder in Jena, Louisiana, after a racially charged school fight; the conviction of Genarlow Wilson, a black teen charged with child molestation after having consensual oral sex with another teen; and the rape and torture of Megan Williams, a West Virginia woman forced to eat animal feces by six whites who berated her with racial slurs.

Here’s an idea - Support the Writers Strike - FIGHT BLACK FRIDAY WITH RED FRIDAY
Do not buy any DVD’s!
Do not see any movies!
Do not download any streaming movies!
Show your support for the writers on the biggest shopping day of the year.
Let the studios know that the audience recognizes the importance of the writers guild.
