Tuesday, October 29, 1929 was the beginning of the Great Depression. The bottom fell out of the stock market. Employment was at 20%. A metaphoric black cloud hung over our nation. For years, Black Tuesday in the USA called up horrific memories that lasted for more than a decade. But now, promoters have turned these historic negatives into positives by targeting the day after Thanksgiving for increased sales. Black Friday generally is positive. It’s when merchants promote “bargains” to move their ledgers into the black. They make money. I’m still adjusting my thinking. There are probably several people named “Hitler”, “Hirohito” or “Mussolini” who are good guys.
Black Tuesday evolves to Black Friday
