Black Friday Should Be Banned, According to Millenials

Should Black Friday be cancelled already? Yes or No?

Yearly after Thanksgiving, a lot of people are anticipating one thing – the Black Friday sale. It’s that time of the year when stores are offering many of their products in massive discounts.

In the United States, for example, consumers are willing to camp outside stores and endure long lines during what many believe as the “busiest shopping day of the year.” Along with that, critics are also bashing the annual tradition, saying it only promotes mass hysteria. Besides, accidents and even deaths are reported each year during Black Friday.

In an INC article, we particularly learn that about 70% of Millenials (those ages 20 to 36) are against Black Friday. The research was conducted by social media firm The Tylt and over 4,300 Millenials participated in the survey.

One Twitter netizen commented:

“It’s obvious people can’t control themselves, so ban the dang thing.”

The argument gets even more intense over at the Debate.org site where we see 75% of commenters are in favor of cancelling Black Friday altogether.

As one said:

“I’m tired of seeing and hearing about store workers getting injured or even killed because some people can’t control themselves.”

Another suggested:

“Black Friday should be canceled because too many people are either killed or hurt fighting over merchandise that can be bought at discounted prices throughout the year. Customers shouldn’t have to feel insecure or threatened by simply shopping. Stores and malls become overpopulated which becomes huge safety hazards. If stores want to work however they want, they should be free to do so on other days rather than all at once.”

Meanwhile, the INC report further tells us that the main criticism against Black Friday is that it “promotes consumerism, rather than qualities that really matter in life: Love, empathy, spirituality and compassion.”

Instead of the chaotic Black Friday, some are saying it’s much better to wait for Cyber Monday instead – an online equivalent of the tradition.

Contrary to popular belief, no, not all the rich and famous drive luxury cars. As you will learn in the article below, some of the world's top billionaires actually prefer modest vehicles over fancy ones.

It may seem hard to grasp but you better believe it: some of the wealthiest really do not like the idea of spending too much on their rides. This s pretty amazing for us, common people, especially when we consider the fact that they have all the money to afford any expensive car they want.

There's a good lesson for us in here somewhere, folks. Read on and see for yourself!

Since the Sentinelese have made it perfectly clear numerous times that visitors are not welcome and that they want to be left alone, nothing much is known about the world's last Stone Age tribe. But one thing is for sure; they have lived happily and largely healthily on their tiny, lush, mangrove-swamped 20-square-mile island for at least 30,000 years.

However, one American preacher repeatedly imposed himself on a tiny island of North Sentinel in the Bay of Bengal in a bid to convert them to Christianity until they snapped. Now, people are wondering what life is really like on the island.
