THE M.L.K. SALE !
Today was the day we celebrated the life and works of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. However, like other holidays the focus is shifting away from the main theme.
Today I had a choice to relax and meditate on what Martin Luther King Jr. means to me or I could have gone to a furniture store to get 20% off on a dining room set because today is a "special sale day." A few years ago sales like this were unheard of.
Is it disrespectful to buy something on at the "MLK Clearance Sale”? I think so. It's tacky and straight up ghetto! To use his legacy to sell a washer and dryer is ridiculous!
I'm surprised all of these "so called" Black organizations are quiet as a mouse on this subject. It's as if they have folded like a cheap suit!!
Most of these businesses should have been closed today anyway ! Especially the large companies that can afford it.
I hope you didn't go to any "MLK" sales today. I hope you paid full price. You may have loss money but not your dignity!
What's next, a Gandhi lingerie sale!!! Buy a bra and get a thong for free !
Don’t be surprised…….
