    We need to “uplift” the group that calls themselves strong and independent, and the backbone of the black community.

    Not black boys/men, who suffer a lot more and never get uplifted.

    🤦🏾‍♂️

      We should uplift everyone who’s down and out my man, so I agree with you sort of. Fighting about who’s got it worse will only take away time and effort that could bring better change.

      @Alex we don’t uplift men at all. It’s always all about women, despite them doing better than men in recent years

      Men are their main supporters, so why are they catering to women? They’re trying to lose their target audience

    Everytime a social justice video is forced down our throats, all we can do is throw a thumbs down on the video and move on. We dont come to TNT for this nor does anybody quite frankly.

      @Chris Brown I need a response. Come on big guy. I know you have at least a brain cell or two in there.

      @Chris Brown Why’d you delete your comment? You just another black man hiding behind the government

    What does this have to do with black men or the NBA? Shouldn’t this get shown on the WNBA instead? 😂 Stop pushing feminism on men!

      It is an agenda.

    What does this have to do with the NBA? There are no women in the NBA, because they cannot make the grade physically. So why are we now seeing some poem by a black woman that is nothing but praise for black women and black women only, who are not even involved in male basketball?! This is politicized pandering to people that are not even your core audience, a core audience who really couldn’t give a d*mn about your woke agenda.

    If you see in your feed a positive video meant to uplift the spirits of a minority in your community and it angers you so much that you have to leave a hate comment, instead of moving on knowing it’s going to help someone else, then there is something wrong with you. A racist problem.

    I don’t know if y’all are racist or sum in this comments. If you don’t like it then shush and go sleep or get some rest. You weren’t forced to click on it right ? And stop disliking it. Okay 👍. Btw I love this 🤗

      @Cameron Bettencourt you can. No one said you can’t watch sport without politics. But in this new era Everything is interwoven. Things are mixed. Just enjoy it and let it flow. And if you don’t like what’s up. Don’t watch. Not y’all been salty and talking thrash. When I see something I don’t like. I move on. That’s life. You can’t expect to get things u like every time. Life isn’t balance okay.

      @KingScu this section of TNT is about ladies. Go check the latest videos. Women athletes are having a day on TNT. And more so, women’s day is around the corner. Let them have their day. And they are lots of men video’s on the net uplifting men’s of every color. Go check YouTube. We don’t have to make everything a gender war. I mean men and women of all color are living on earth right ?

    • Cameron Bettencourt

      February 25, 2021 at 8:12 pm

      @Ocean King do you even watch sports? Or are you the people who just are interested because of what’s going on now…

      @Ocean King it’s not introwoven. Youre trying to make it that way. And its not that way. You’re trying to make this the norm. And that’s the problem.

    Seems like black women only care about black women. Why can’t she “uplift” black men? Isn’t this the NBA?? Lol

    • KingScu

      February 25, 2021 at 7:14 pm

      So you’ve noticed as well. Only if they have a black son, they MIGHT care about uplifting him. Otherwise……..

      @KingScu So true. Black men have no allies in this world…. really sad.
