The Blackest Friday

Black Friday has always been a madhouse for retail locations. This is something I can remember happening even in my childhood. Back then it was people getting trampled over Tickle Me Elmos, Beanie Babies and Tamagotchis though. Things have always been bad, been primal and uncivilized, but social media has opened many eyes to how immoral this can actually be. We frequently see videos of fights and items being snatched from potential buyers. I saw a video of a middle aged women snatching an item out of the hands of a child. Truly how low do you have to go to be taking things from a child? These animalistic consumers seem to have no shame. They seem to have no limit to how far they will go to get the latest and greatest deal at these department stores; and things may only be getting worse.

Now obviously there has to be some connecting story that has SOCIAL’s resident shoe guy sitting behind his keyboard. I’m writing because of the atrocity that occurred at Nike’s Seattle Premium Outlet. The entire outlet was left in disarray with aisles filled with boxes and other merchandise. Now, of course I feel for the employees and dedicated staff left to restore the store (if even possible for them to do), but there is more than that. What about the extra hours needed to be worked by employees who most likely already had longer shifts due to Black Friday? What about the revenue essentially lost from all of the damaged product? What about the store merchandising that was actually damaged with the craze that occurred? If impacted that much the location could have actually been closed due to needing to be refurbished. But, these are things I consider. These are things that I take the time to think about.

Now we are left to ask the simple and obvious question; why would people do that? There may have been rumors of releases or lists of great promotions, but still none that was justified. Nike outlets are a blessing to many enthusiasts, and a vast amount of casual consumers. I used to consider my trips to these outlets as “Hunting for Gems’ due to there normally being a returned pair of heat sitting in the back waiting to be purchased, but not being advertised. Nike Outlets contain sales on top of reductions on top of sales, and this is how we as a sneaker world treat it? This disgusts me, and there is no other way for me to put it. Have we become that ungrateful as consumers? Has the game now become that dirty? It was just 5 years ago that the “Banned” (Air Jordan Retro High Banned 1s) released there, and drove a true frenzy due to their rarity at the time. This was once a beautiful art, but between resale prices, incidents like this, and sneaker violence, it’s clear that there is no value to it. I mean, it’s hard enough to be someone that enjoys sneakers without being viewed as an immature, hoarder with no value of money and little to no sense of what to truly matters in life; as many of you are seen as. But, this has made it worse. Now mind you this isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Unfortunately, we have seen many stores and malls broken into and pretty much ransacked when a limited release has dropped. But, I do actually believe this is the first time when a location was open for business. And on top of that this was not looting. These were supposed consumers that paid for their merchandise.

I truly don’t understand the purpose of what occurred in Seattle. We send our well wishes to the employees of that Nike Outlet, as well as any other businesses or employees impacted by this type of idiotic behavior. We also send our condolences to anyone ever affected by sneaker violence. In short, we have to be better, in many aspects. I can’t say hype or anything else did this. This was a group of clowns running rampant because they have no worth in their own lives.

  16. Los Blancos, with captain Sergio Ramos suspended after deliberately collecting a yellow card in the first leg, had been looking to build on a slender 2-1 lead from that game in Amsterdam and stay on course for a potential fourth straight European triumph.

    However, after Raphael Varane’s header rattled the crossbar, Ajax raced into an early lead through Hakim Ziyech before Dusan Tadic set up David Neres for a second in the 18th minute.

    Real Madrid were forced into two changes when Lucas Vazquez and Vinicius Junior went off injured, with substitute Gareth Bale hitting the post just before half-time.

    Ajax looked to have put the tie to bed when Tadic swept in a brilliant third goal just after the hour – which was eventually given following an extensive Video Assistant Referee review to check if the ball had gone out of play in the build-up.

  25. Trump was surrounded at Friday’s event by officials from Customs and Border Protection as well as surviving family members of those who have loved ones killed by undocumented immigrants. Attorney General William Barr was also at the President’s veto event.
    While some lawmakers including some Republicans — have argued against the President’s use of national emergency powers in this instance, the Justice Department set forth a robust defense of the President’s authority to do so in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell earlier this month, according to a copy obtained by CNN on Friday.
    “The President acted well within his discretion in declaring a national emergency concerning the southern border,” wrote Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd, setting out the legal basis for the proclamation under the National Emergencies Act and additional statutory authorities, which largely tracks an internal memo issued by the Office of Legal Counsel at the Justice Department.

Her parents were the Swedish king Gustavus Adolphus and his German wife, Maria Eleonora, had already had two daughters—a stillborn princess in 1620, and then the first Princess Christina, who was born in 1623 and died the following year.3] Excited expectation surrounded Maria Eleonora’s third pregnancy in 1626. When the baby was born, it was first thought to be a boy as it was “hairy” and screamed “with a strong, hoarse voice.”she later wrote in her autobiography that, “Deep embarrassment spread among the women when they discovered their mistake.” The king, though, was very happy, stating, “She’ll be clever, she has made fools of us all!”6] From most accounts, Gustav Adolf appears to have been closely attached to his daughter, and she appears to have admired him greatly.

  30. Despite residing in Germany for nearly 30 years, there are still some things I cannot wrap my mind around. I may have married a German, pay German taxes, and have German(-American) children, but I guess my US mentality still shines through.

    Like when it comes to personal space. I’ll be standing in the supermarket, in front of a shelf full of products, deliberating over the selection, and inevitably a hand will slip itself in front of my face and grab an item from the row. Many Germans seem to not have any qualms about this at all, but it still takes me aback sometimes.
