Oh wow Sainsbury’s

Erm… Well… you did it Sainsbury’s and no one can take that away from you.

Maybe showing my ignorance here but I thought black history month was a US thing.

Also, maybe a celebration of Caribbean / African food at discounted prices might have been a better idea than um… This

I think this will work out well for them.

Definitely a thing here, since the 1980s. We also have it in a different month to the US (October rather than February).

Wow OK. Bad on my part. It seems to get a lot of publicity over there compared to here then

To put everything else that is awful about this to the side for a moment, how would selling what you usually sell for the same price as usual be a celebration of anything?

It’s a celebration of capitalism

Reckon it’s deliberate so they can get some publicity and then apologise

My local Sainsbury’s has stopped selling celeriac.
I’m outraged.

Might chain myself to something a la Homer Simpson.

They barely sell any albums any more, let alone such an old and devisive one.
