US—Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) was furious today after she learned that retailers and shopping outlets were still referring to the day after Thanksgiving as “Black Friday“.
She has demanded that they start referring to the make-shift holiday next year as “Friday of Color”.
“This is 2022 so that means next year is going to be 2022,” Ocasio-Cortez said in a press conference. “It’s about time that we start referring to dates using politically correct terminology.”
The demand came after former Vice-President Joe Biden said that they should let African Americans shop on days other than Black Friday.
“You’re either moving forward with things like these or you’re a Nazi,” Ocasio-Cortez added.
A spokesperson for Macy’s was not available for comment.
