Before Black Friday There were Dollar Days (When America was White)

1941 LOS ANGELES, WHEN EVERYONE SHOPPED DOWNTOWN.

History can be a useful reminder that the the things we don’t like about life today don’t have to be that way.

The black-and-white photos show the Dollar Days sales in Los Angeles in the 1940s and 50s. America was 90 percent white then. Life was peaceful and orderly.

The color photos show Black Friday today.

INSIDE A DEPARTMENT STORE. NOTICE HOW ORDERLY AND WELL DRESSED EVERYONE IS.

WINDOW SHOPPING WAS PART OF THE ENJOYMENT.

ORDERLY. CAN YOU SPOT THE LESBIAN?

Isn’t there a saying, perhaps from the Bible, that says you cannot worship both God and Mammon?

  1. For 99% of history, anyone could live, and live well, for a few dollars a month, and we could save, easily, and build up our savings accounts. Today, with the bolshe-vik (vast majority) devils (Rev 2&3:9) “in control” of everything but their own insanity, it costs more to buy a “taco bell small taco” than it cost a whole family to live well for a whole month, for 99% of history.

    PASS ON TO ALL OF YOUR FAMILY!!!

  3. In that last B&W the women (all colours) carry themselves with a fundamental pride that emanates from the stature (no fat chicks there) and dress. The today shots are repellent. If you want a reason for why so many men seem to be Gay these days, look no further than the wildebeest present in both shots, honestly, who would dream of…..(end thought now)

  4. The photos are a very telling message of the decline of society. Modern retailers may also be guilty of pricing only a few items very cheap e.g. say 2 TV sets in total, intentionally creating these stampedes. How about a law that no price can be changed during one day and all requests to buy an item must be honoured (unless the item is discontinued)? So if a TV is say $!99 on Black Friday, anyone can buy one (and only one) at any time until closing. This ends the need for rugby style scrimmaging where the fattest and ugliest get the biggest prizes.
    A lot of sales, or most sales, have a tiny number of items sold at a loss and all the things you really need at normal price. But idiots buy these full price items anyway. As a matter of principle I never pay full price for any item during a sale.
    Nice guys finish last. I have never attended such a manic sale and most likely never will.
