Amazon Best Sellers: “Black Lives Matter” Shirts and Pepper Spray
Best sellers and what's selling out really is a sign of the times. Remember just a couple months ago when none of us could get toilet paper, paper towels or hand sanitizer? Well now, in the middle of the pandemic, some other things are selling out, and they have nothing to do with COVID-19.
With the protests over the death of George Floyd, there's some new best-sellers on Amazon: pepper spray and Black Lives Matter shirts.
And outside of the top two spots, “Black Lives Matter” types of tees made up seven of Amazon’s top 15 “novelty” clothing item spots. An “I can’t breathe” tee was #3, which was what George Floyd said several times before dying while a cop kneeled on his neck.
And people are looking for some reading material, because books about racism were also selling higher than usual, like Robin DiAngelo’s White Fragility and Ibram X. Kendi’s How to Be an Antiracist.
You really do love to see it. What are you doing to further the conversation?
