CNN is in hot water after calling this weekend’s NBA All-Star Game “Black Thanksgiving.”

The article which is written by a (brother) NBA analyst David Aldridge, calls All Star Weekend a “national holiday” for African Americans. Now they are getting hammered on social media sites like Facebook & Twitter.

CNN named NBA All-Star Weekend Black Thanksgiving because basketball was stolen from white Indiana farm boys in shorty-shorts and Converse.

Hey @CNN at least the Black Thanksgiving isn’t like the White Thanksgiving, based off massacring the Native Americans & rejoicing about it!

The CNN article “Black Thanksgiving” isn’t lying though. It might not be telling the truth from your perspective, but it is a truth.

Why did CNN call the NBA All Star Game Black Thanksgiving? Did basketball players from Europe take land of basketball players already here?
