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.

    This insults poor people who I personally think have better sense. I know too many middle-class people with nothing better to do than get up at 3am to fight each other for some lame piece of bullshit. Poor people are probably too tired from work or have to get up in a few hours to work.
