(PIX11)– While many people were out buying gifts for their loved ones (or for themselves) on Black Friday, there’s a movement working to boycott shopping on this particular day.

Among those was Eric Garner’s daughter Emerald Garner who was made the face of an emotional video that stood against buying on the discount-heavy Black Friday.

Blackout for Human Rights posted a short video titled ‘#Blackout: Emerald Garner Can’t Buy Her Dad a Christmas Present’ asking various families who they were spending holidays with.

It ended with Emerald’s sentimental tribute to her late father who was placed in an illegal chokehold by members of the NYPD.  Medical Examiner ruled it a homicide.

        Hey Spic-Knee Grow, did you not see the footage from the store’s surveillance cameras? Where the fat criminal thug stole some cigars to roll his blunts, and physically attacked the store keeper on his way out? Yea, that video evidence can easily be forgotten. Also, Spic-Knee Grow, did you not see the forensic evidence that shows that the fat criminal did indeed tussle with the law enforcement officer, trying to grab a hold of the officer’s firearm? The fat criminal was shot at close range once while trying to grab the firearm. What we have here is the simple story of a fat, knee grow, criminal thug who thought he could do what he wants and get away with it. His parents should be thrown in jail for raising a child like that. You should be ashamed of yourself for believing the lies spewed by the fake reverand fat albert, i mean al sharpton.

        But why go to a zoo when i see monkeys like you on the train everyday? Savages that ruin the quality of life for good people. Racist minorities that use any excuse to further their cause and hatred. Don’t like it? Move the fuck out of the country, monkey.

    Hopefully her father won’t be comitting any more crimes in the afterlife. He committed enough crimes while he was here on this earth.

Since you don’t like to be surrounded by people that on not what you are “white ” Crazy did you forget your PRESIDENT is black bitch ! Oh my goodness just shut up already !

      • Jack Mehoff

        I thought you said you were done responding, spigger. The president is black, yes, and the president has atrocious approval ratings. Coincidence? Keep acting a monkey, because thats all that you and your people are. Savage miniority monkeys.

      • Jack Mehoff

        Actually, they do. Noone gives a fuck what your minority welfare ass says. Go back to your rent-controlled apartment infested with mold and roaches, and get ready to go to the store tomorrow with your EBT card since it is the beginning of the month. You already said you were done responding, so keep true to your word, cu nt.

      • Meliza

        This bitch first off … I make good money own my own house have no roaches and use no welfare. Like shut the fuck up already

      • Jack Mehoff

        Then stop sticking up for the welfare monkey criminals. Besides, you’re the one who said you were stopping. So leave already, minority hoe.

    Meliza – Do not respond to ignorance. You will only get on his level and that is not a good place to be. Gather friends and family and do not spend any money at stores that do not speak out against injustice. That will be the only way to get noticed. Be strong, be brave.

    • Jack Mehoff

      Yes! Be black, loot and burn things. Just like the peaceful protestor who torched the car in Brooklyn Wednesday night
