A Religious Storm is Brewing Over Best Buy's Black Friday Ads

Here it comes: Best Buy ran a national Black Friday ad inviting the world to celebrate Thanksgiving and Eid Al-Adha, the Muslim festival of sacrifice. Fair enough, right? Happy Eid! Well, take a gander at the ad up there and brace yourself.Look closely. You'll probably miss the good will and wishes, they're so innocuous.

I think it's the right thing to do. Kudos to Best Buy for extending a hand to the Muslim community, it's long over due. It's American capitalism at it's greedy best! Some right-wingers have their klan robes man panties all in a frilly bunch over this. I guess they don't understand it's a pretty crowded world out there and get this news flash... there are a bunch of different people inhabiting the planet! I know it comes as quite a revelation for some.  Oh God, why'd you make so many flavors?
