Black Thanksgiving.

I recently heard about how some stores are opening their doors around dinner time on Thanksgiving. This made me really mad, and I’m sure I’m not the only one. I read blogger Matt Walsh‘s very blunt and honest outrage about this insanity, and it made me want to express my own thoughts.
