Black Rights Group Calls for Black Friday Boycott and Day of Action
Black Out for Human Rights – a Ferguson black rights group – is organizing a Black Friday Boycott and Day of Action.
The organizers are calling for dissent on Black Friday.
We have witnessed enough. We mourn the loss of men like Oscar Grant, Eric Garner, Ezell Ford, John Crawford and Michael Brown, who met their deaths at the hands of police officers. We mourn the loss of life and the absence of justice for Trayvon Martin, Renisha McBride and Jordan Davis, killed by private citizens, in a climate where police action demonstrates this as acceptable. An affront to any citizen’s human rights threatens the liberty of all. So, we participate in one of the most time honored American traditions: dissent.
The group’s Facebook page describes the group as a network of concerned citizens who commit their energy and resources to immediately address the staggering level of human rights violations against fellow Americans throughout the United States. We have witnessed enough.
The group has not yet posted their plans for Black Friday.
Obviously, their goal is to mess with and harass as many people as possible.
