You Can’t Boycott Something You’ve Never Purchased

These are the variant covers for the September issue of EBONY Magazine.


As magnificent as you or I may find these to be, apparently there are those who are more enraged by this cover than the cover of the recent issue of Rolling Stone that featured the surviving Boston Bomber.

Conservatives are now threatening to boycott EBONY Magazine, which leads me to believe that they don’t know how a boycott works. Because if you were never buying a product to begin with, you can’t boycott it. And if you expect me to believe Joe Sixpack Teabagger has been buying EBONY, I’ll ask you for a receipt.

Coincidentally, nearly every post I’ve made or am going to make today concerns racism. I didn’t plan it, but this is America.

    but they do have pull in the ad companies that keep the magazine afloat. I think they are calling for the boycott of ad revenues instead. That will hit where it hurts! They don’t care how many are actually sold.

    This must be the joke of the day!! Rule to boycotting is to stop buying the product that you would otherwise PURCHASE!!! IDIOTS!!! lol

    Republicans suck at protests. It comes from being on the side of the rich and powerful 100% of the time. Remember when they bought bottles of French wine and poured them in the sewer to “punish” France for refusing to support Bush’s Big Adventure?

      Ironically, some of those may have come from American vineyards!

    In my 24 years of life on this earth, I have never seen one white person in the checkout aisle at Publix pick up an Ebony magazine and put it in their basket for checkout.

      Have you even see a white person pick up an Ebony and then return it to the rack?

      • GOVCHRIS1988

        Nope. Just maybe gaze at the cover then pick up the Vogue or Ladies Home Journal next to it.
