Stop Shaming Black Friday Shoppers
Here is a controversial post about people getting hurt around Black Friday shopping and the classist overtones of how more privileged people who been writing about it. What is especially interesting to me is the comparison of Black Friday fatalities to the currently popular Hunger Games movie.
Is the Onion parody of millions dying in the Black Friday shopping brawl classist and thus inappropriate material for parody? Perhaps, i am not sure. I have not read the Onion piece, but people dying in the rush to shopping is certainly an aspect of our society which should be discussed and likely parodied in my book.
The comments on this blog post are definitely worth reading.
