Black Friday refers to bookkeeping/accounting. Losses were written in red ink while profits were written in black ink. Black Friday was expected to product such hugh sales that it could put a company back "in the black" after a year of sales losses.

For goodness sake, whatever the word origin. No one I know is thinking in racial terms about "Black Friday." With the sales slipping into Thanksgiving day, the term will begin to wane in significance.

When stores have an increase in revenue, the store is said to be in the black. When they are spending more than they have, they are said to be in the red. Because the stores offer a lot of discounted merchandise the day after Thanksgiving, they have record sales. And that puts them in the black. It has nothing to with race.

The term comes from the Philly PD in the 60's. Look it up.
