All-Star weekend has officially kicked off in Los Angeles, and already CNN's NBA analyst David Aldridge, has slam dunked on the black community by declaring the weekend a national holiday; “Black Thanksgiving” to be exact.
Aldridge's remarks are apparently not sitting well with the public, and several African American's have taken to Twitter to express their thoughts.
Really #CNN an article abt some foolishness entitled “black thanksgiving” was the best you could do?!
CNN is reporting ''Black Thanksgiving'' is this weekend…WTF?!
I'm not calling it Racist at all… But “Black Thanksgiving” is a horrible title for AllStar weekend… #CNN
CNN might call NBA Allstar Weekend Black Thanksgiving…but groupies… hoes & jumpoffs call it Black Christmas
CNN named NBA All-Star Weekend Black Thanksgiving because basketball was stolen from white Indiana farm boys in shorty-shorts and Converse.
RT @TypikalPolitikz: Black Thanksgiving? Mannnnnnnnnnnn F*CK CNN!!!!
Hey @CNN at least the Black Thanksgiving isn't like the White Thanksgiving, based off massacring the Native Americans & rejoicing about it!
Black Thanksgiving…again, I say…47 years ago…@CNN you've reached a new depth of disgrace & crassness.
The CNN article “Black Thanksgiving” isn't lying though. It might not be telling the truth from your perspective, but it is a truth.
RT @jovitos_wayy: did CNN hit its ultimate racist peak by calling an article Black Thanksgiving? really CNN, really.
Why did CNN call the NBA All Star Game Black Thanksgiving? Did basketball players from Europe take land of basketball players already here?
CNN is on some bullsh*t. No doubt Soledad will do a special on this. #BlackInAmerica #Black #Thanksgiving
