“Black Friday” turned out to truly black for one poor guy. This is a fitting example of the ills of excess materialism and callousness. The frenzy and desperation of people looking to score bargains disgusts me, whether it’s a crowd of people or even my own relatives. And to think it took place in New York state in the US. If this thing happened in another country or part of the world, especially a poor and underdeveloped one, we’d be so quick to smirk and see it as uncivilised and pathetic. Well, definitely those Americans who were involved in this are.
