6384: Black Friday.
Blackened news in a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• Former Maryland Lt. Governor Michael Steele was named the first Black Republican National Committee chairman. Steele declared, “This is the dawn of a new party moving in a new direction with strength and conviction.” Hey, it beats moving in a new direction with Bush and Cheney.
• Exxon Mobil sold enough black gold to break its own record with a $45.2 billion annual profit. That beats the average profit of most U.S. companies by over $45.2 billion.
• Procter & Gamble reported 2Q profits rose 53 percent, although net sales dropped 3.2 percent. Regardless, the P&G accountants are likely purring, “My, Black Is Beautiful.”
