Rapper, actor and political activist David Banner is never afraid to speak his mind on touchy subjects regarding racism and the struggles of the black community.

Recently David claimed the black community won’t be able to progress and move forward until black women and black men work on their issues and form a bond.

Now he’s speaking his mind about Thanksgiving and just why he feels black people shouldn’t celebrate the holiday.

    There’s a lot of holidays we shouldn’t celebrate but people have turned these holidays into something positive and reasons to spend time with their loved ones. And there’s nothing wrong with that. I like David a lot, but sometimes he does too much for me.

    I see what he’s saying but I’m not about to stop celebrating Thanksgiving. it doesn’t mean I’m not aware of its history though.

    If that’s the case, no one should celebrate Thanksgiving. Not just people of color.

    There’s always a handful of people who rant about this on my newsfeed every Thanksgiving. I think we have a right to celebrate whatever we want to without handing over our black cards.

    Shouldn’t he be saying this to white people? Aren’t they the ones who wiped out the Native Americans? Black people like myself are thankful for the time off work and eating good food with the fam. It’s not that deep to us.

    I agree, but I don’t refrain from partaking in the time off from work, family time, eating, and lounging. Being that it’s positive in bringing families together, I don’t think it should be knocked. Do I go the whole mile and talk about pilgrims and all that? Nah. But for kids in daycare making turkey out of their hands and the families who haven’t seen each other in God knows how long? Celebrate on.

    First of all, do anybody see the natives fighting for blacks? Im not fighting for them or being the backbone for no other other race but my own. And besides, the natives received reparations for their atrocities. Im going to eat, relax and have a good time with family. I bet david is doing the same. Bye.

    We as a community don’t need a specific day as a call for family to gather around and be appreciative of one another. We should give thanks everyday for what we have and for family. I agree with David Banner. Culture has a way of dictating what we should celebrate….give thanks everyday!
