It's the day when many stores go "in the black" or start to show a profit for the year.

I heard on a chain email it was originally created for the black homeless in LA, but other people found out about it and go to.  i mean, what normal person would go to wait in a line for hours in the freezing cold? a homeless person of course.

Black ink indicates profit, while red indicates loss. Therefore on this day, when Christmas shopping has officially begun, many stores go into the black.
