    As the holiday season steadily approaches, many are getting ready to enjoy quality family time, amazing food and in the true American spirit – Black Friday shopping.

    For some, shopping on the Friday following Thanksgiving is not only a tradition, but a sport. However, amid all of the controversy surrounding Barneys New York and its racial profiling scandal, you might want to take a minute to reevaluate your shopping strategy.

    In a hilarious video courtesy of Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show, correspondent Jessica Williams gives some well-needed tips for shopping – while black.

    In one scene, Williams tells a black bystander that they should always have a “white person” with them as they shop in order to avoid being stopped by security. Other tips include bringing department store security guards cookies and alerting everyone of your presence as you enter a store.

    Take a look at the video above and be ready to laugh and have a SMH moment all at the same time.
