Anyway, though the hint mentions Thanksgiving, the answer- Black Friday- is definitely about Christmas.
and, oh yeah, Christmas is under attack. Right...
More seriously, I've been hearing about people forgetting Christmas was about Christ since I was 5. That was 32 years ago. Nobody has forgotten yet.
I wish Christmas would go back to being 2 days, then it was special.

2nd, of course this ridiculous term was invented with a political agenda in mind. It can and has been used regularly as a pejorative, by those who also use "white", "male", and "privileged" as pejoratives (and there are many out there, I've had these insults hurled at me many times). But the original purpose was not so much to put down normal people but rather to take away and deny their normal status. Because while it should make perfect sense to refer to those who were born biologically male as simply "male" and those who were born biologically female as simply "female," if you exclusively attach prefixes to transsexuals then this is acknowledging that there is something unusual or different about their gender identity, and we can't have that, so they want to force unnecessary prefixes on everyone.

The way quotes work in this context is that you are quoting someone else- using someone else's words that are not your own words. These are not my own words. In some cases you may borrow someone else's words that you might also use yourself, but you want to use a proper attribution. But not in this case. I would never in my life refer to someone as "cis"gender un-ironically. I also don't recognize race as a real thing, so "white" is similarly appropriate. It's shorthand for saying something like "so-called white people" to acknowledge that while the label is invalid or just not something I would use myself, nevertheless there are people who use that label. My use of quotes was completely justified.
