University of Florida students who said they support changing the name “Black Friday” had a change of heart when informed that the shopping holiday’s name has nothing to do with race.

In a video released Wednesday by Campus Reform, students at the Gainesville campus were asked by reporter Ophelie Jacobson whether they supported renaming “Black Friday,” citing an opinion article that argued it discriminates against Black people.

The article goes on to state the following:

The origin “Black Friday” is heavily debated, but the History Channel says it ultimately stems from 1960s Philadelphia, where police used the term to negatively describe the frenzied shopping that ensued on the day after Thanksgiving, just before the Army-Navy football game kicked off that Saturday every year. In the 1980s, retailers reportedly reinvented the term to mean that stores would turn a profit on the day after Thanksgiving, and go from red to black, after operating at a loss for the entire year.


As Campus Reform interviewed the college students, it was clear they had no idea what the term meant.

One student said, “Honestly I’m down to rename that. I don’t like the name Black Friday. I never really have since I was small. Whenever I would go to stores, everything would be jammed packed and I would see workers, kind of, it sounds wrong, but they would lean more toward the lighter skinned people. Like, they would assist them.”

WATCH their responses, as they learned what the term really means:

  1. Actually I learned the term long before the 80’s. I was born in ’61 and remember asking when I was a child why it was called that, and was told about ledgers going from red to black because people started their Christmas shopping the day after Thanksgiving.

  2. Our future generation…so easily brainwashed to thinking everything is about racism.

    Just love the girl who said she doesn’t support anything capitalism, but is going to school to get a job that will employ her with capitalism. 😂😂

  3. And these PENISES r college students?? How da fuk did that happen…. Oh Lord, I pray You take me home before they run this country…….. Yea into oblivion….

  4. The college students ya I say even high school students aren’t taught anything anymore. They are brainwashed to hate America and if they are white hate themselves.. its no wonder America is 25 in the world when it comes to education

  5. They are wasting thousands of dollars every year for college so they can come out dumber than they went in.
    If their parents are paying for school they are idiots for throwing their money away.

  6. Far to many young people far to ignorant.
    Greater threat than climate change or CoV for future. At least of USA.
    Shsmefull embarrassment.
