UCF White Student Union Sparks Controversy


Recent student protests against racial injustice at the University of Missouri sparked similar movements on college campuses nationwide, and the University of Central Florida is no exception. Two weeks ago, UCF’s Black Student Union held a sit-in to support the organization that spearheaded the Missouri protests. But a few days after that, someone created a Facebook page called “White Student Union at UCF,” claiming to see in Black Lives Matter protests “an explicit hostility to white students, faculty, and culture.” In a lengthy statement to the press last week, the UCF White Student Union said: “We are not a racist or white supremacist organization… But we will not apologize for being white.

Buy Local on Black Friday


The origin of the phrase “Black Friday” is twisty. Its first published use was in 1951, in a newspaper story about the mysterious illness that seemed to strike employees on the Friday after Thanksgiving. Once most employers caved in and began offering a four-day weekend, it naturally became a shopping bonanza – so much so that, in Philadelphia, traffic police began calling it … Black Friday. In the early ’60s, a Philadelphia paper picked up the term in their reporting of the annual shopping rush, and eventually it went national.
