People get hurt and die all the time so my only thoughts about black Friday are that people should be a little more humane...

By attending black friday sales you inadvertantly consent to being trampled by greedy ********- it's pretty simple- do your shopping around black friday, all the ******** are certain to be absent.

When you have millions of people doing the same thing, you cannot simply say they're the absolute problem themselves. These are people that grew up in this country, with the same culture, same families, same capitalist market. No other country does things like this. This country is dominated by mindless machines that only consume and defecate. Shopping and eating is the American dream now.

Agreed, it is the 'American way of life'.

That's untrue-
Now hold on- you're saying that as if it's disappointing or at all surprising- the "American dream" has always been the ability to be a moneywhoring slob- it's just said with different phrases and connotations.

Black Friday may not exist in other countries, but everyone has their own disgusting and abhorrent cultural traits- we aren't at all unique in that regard and a small minority of consumerist idiots is in no way a viable representation of the average American's character.

People can say what they want, but the US gets criticized for just about everything we do- many of these criticisms are well placed, but often people (this includes Americans as well) have a black and white viewpoint about us. Where do we get off criticizing a holiday about buying things? Who cares? What are we supposed to do, ban Black Friday? Should we not expect some people to go crazy over this stuff?

Between my last comment and now, I've done a bit of research-

I'm beginning to think this backlash regarding Black Friday is an overreaction. Is this really about having a critical voice on a broken society, or is it about simply finding affirmation among those who agree with us?

tl;dr Your comment got me to seriously think about this issue
