Today I had to go into work at 9:30am to work some freight that didn’t get done yesterday (Thankgiving) due to the store got swamped. After I had laid out and tagged the HBA, I went up front to get a few swings of my soda. Low and behold I hear a middle aged southern belle say the top line and boy did I want to give her a verbal lashing she wouldn’t forget. No bitch, it’s not called Black Friday due to only people of color flood the stores to get super discounts on nice things they’ve been wanting all year, there are white people who do that too. The latest black Friday footage doesn’t show just seas of caremel and chocolate, they’ve got some cream in there too. It’s called Black Friday due to store have surplus that they have to get rid of. Call it winter cleaning if you will. The big names like Wal-Mart, Target and Best Buy are in the black, which means they are well above good financial standing but they have a surplus they need to get rid of so new items can grace their inventories. Stores and shockrooms have limited space. It simple economics you ignorant twatwaffle. Also guess who invented black friday? Big coporations lead by who, white people (I’m white too btw). So don’t go spurting your racist bullshit unless you want someone who’s half your age and below your social status to school you big time. If we were in a different store and I wasn’t on the clock, I would’ve torn you apart.
Black Friday isn’t what your racist misconception makes you think it is you walking cesspool. Get your shit, make your purchase then take your business elsewhere.

Kuksi continues his use of ornate assemblage to create wildly complex sculptures that comment on history, life, death, and spiritual conflict.
