Just What Is Kwanzaa Anyway?

Has anyone ever ask you what Kwanzaa is? When I was ask in the past I was never able to explain it. Today I found an article that helps to explain what it is, I hope you will check that out. The article contains a link to BOND (Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny) an organization founded by the Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson. After reading the article and visiting the site I came away with the feeling that Kwanzaa is a special time set aside to celebrate Socialism and racism.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

The link doesn't seem to work for me. I looked it up on Wikipedia, it seems one of the principles of Kwanzaa and "blackness" is cooperative economics. Somewhat suspicious-looking.

YOu know, oddly, there ISN'T MUCH DISCUSSION about Kwaanza because not many people celebrate it, so for you to bring it up is just showing your own racist side.

It makes me wonder... Their are so many religions in the world.... Which one is right? More importantly, which one is wrong? Who is to say that Scientology is the true religion of the Universe? (I doubt it, but I hope you get my point..)

daedalus, I don't quite see how trying to learn about something (the reason I checked out the BOND site)would make me a racist. Maybe it's trying to get others to read about it that makes me a racist. In the past I have kicked a card carrying KKK member out of a public meeting because his hat pin offended others. Would that make me a racist? By the way, there is a rather large Kwaanza celebration in Saint Joseph,Missouri.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

This is interesting. I always like hearing about different beliefs.

David,

I have read your posts and have seen nothing racist about any of them.

Kwanzaa is a fraudelent, racist "holiday." Don't waste your time thinking about it. Just pure P.C.

i think the people calling kwanzaa a racist "holiday" are not looking at the right picture.

kwanzaa was originally begun (i'mnot sure when off the top of my mind) to celebrate native african culture

this was because when the slaves where brought in the trans-atlantic slave trade, they were separated from both the peoples of their villages and their culture. thus, they formed it so that such a unique -- as every culture is --tradition will not be lost.

what makes it racist? every single person who called it so did not give a reason at all. why, and what gives you the right to label something as harshly as that without giving any reason, let alone a legitimate one?
