Tuesday, January 20th, 2009

It is widely believed to be related to the enaguration of Barak Obama, the first black President of the United States of America. Many workers took an Obama Day. Others simply lost money in the market due to those taking Obama Days.

It is a date which will live in infamy. We will all remember Black Tuesday, and perhaps tell our grandchildren of a time when we let this happen to ourselves.

A phrase used to describe what guilty white people decided to call activism when in reality they did not want to bother to help in any way that actually takes any effort.
