the bureau of labor statistics does a monthly index report that can give us an idea of any changes in overall consumerism. i'll bookmark the page and post it in october. 

whether or not we make a dent in the numbers on our first shot, let's just consider this a test run for any future blackout plans and promise to spread the word and participate in good faith. Thumbs Up

Yes!!

And this should be on the black radio shows every 15 minutes to get higher participation.  Hopefully the black owned business associations will push this as well.

Somebody mentioned publishing some local lists of black businesses.  This is a good place to put it and then share on other websites we belong to.

and facebookDead

It would be more effective if this happened on a Saturday. Many people would have turned up, shopped and left with very little funds right after pay day. 
Most sales and deals (in store and online) are offered
Fri - Sun anyway, so there's really no incentive to shop on a Monday unless you getting the basic necessities. 
Not trying to sound like a Debbie downer, but just being realistic.
