    Black Thanksgiving?

    'Black Thanksgiving' this weekend

    So, you want to know about "Black Thanksgiving"? It's also called NBA All-Star Weekend. For those who attend, it's an opportunity to go wild and get together, writes longtime NBA reporter David Aldridge. FULL STORY
    I have never heard that term before.

    Am I just out of the loop?

    I used to follow the NBA pretty hardcore. I also work with a large percentage of people that presumably make up the demographic to which Aldridge is referencing and I've never heard the term.

    Other than terming getting together and going wild.... "Thanksgiving", which is unfortunate in and of itself...How does this reflect well on African Americans?

    Just hi-lites the hypocricy of how, in 2011, race based "separation" is acceptable for some in the name of pride...while other races would be castigated for similar proclamations....I.E....

    "White Thanksgiving".

    Love to hear some cracker try that one without losing his job.



    Its silliness, they need to grow up.

    fun facts

    black thanksgiving is probably one man's hyperbole or attempt at a joke

    there are events that are fairly huge in the black community that don't register on most others' radar

    other examples include:

    memorial day weekend (especially Miami where the upcoming summer club hit songs are debuted) http://www.miami.com/miami-memorial-...d-2010-article

    Odunde festival philly http://www.visitphilly.com/events/ph...unde-festival/

    labor day certain "greek weeks" http://www.blackbeachweek.com
