    BLACKS IN AMERICA have suffered an endless series of insults and degradations, the latest of which goes by the name of Kwanzaa.

    Ron Karenga (aka Dr. Maulana Ron Karenga) invented the seven-day feast (Dec. 26-Jan. 1) in 1966, branding it a black alternative to Christmas. The idea was to celebrate the end of what he considered the Christmas-season exploitation of African Americans.

    According to the official Kwanzaa Web site -- as opposed, say, to the Hallmark Cards Kwanzaa site -- the celebration was designed to foster "conditions that would enhance the revolutionary social change for the masses of Black Americans" and provide a "reassessment, reclaiming, recommitment, remembrance, retrieval, resumption, resurrection and rejuvenation of those principles (Way of Life) utilized by Black Americans' ancestors."

    Karenga postulated seven principles: unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity and faith, each of which gets its day during Kwanzaa week. He and his votaries also crafted a flag of black nationalism and a pledge: "We pledge allegiance to the red, black, and green, our flag, the symbol of our eternal struggle, and to the land we must obtain; one nation of black people, with one G-d of us all, totally united in the struggle, for black love, black freedom, and black self-determination."

    Now, the point: There is no part of Kwanzaa that is not fraudulent. Begin with the name. The celebration comes from the Swahili term "matunda yakwanza," or "first fruit," and the festival's trappings have Swahili names -- such as "ujima" for "collective work and responsibility" or "muhindi," which are ears of corn celebrants set aside for each child in a family.

    Unfortunately, Swahili has little relevance for American blacks. Most slaves were ripped from the shores of West Africa. Swahili is an East African tongue.

    To put that in perspective, the cultural gap between Senegal and Kenya is as dramatic as the chasm that separates, say, London and Tehran. Imagine singing "G-d Save the Queen" in Farsi, and you grasp the enormity of the gaffe.

    Worse, Kwanzaa ceremonies have no discernible African roots.

    To put it mildly, this holiday would be akin to if the Klan started it's own holiday. This "holiday" is racist to it's core and I'm talking about true racism, not the bastardized term used today.

    Leave it to a stupid professor to make up a holiday for people to feel good about themselves.

    This has nothing to do with feeling good about oneself. Karanga is a black nationalist and a Black Panther and is the true face of racism. If there was ever anyone worthy of the "N" word, it's this piece of shit.

    The Prof pulled this out of his Kwanza.

    I live in Metro Detroit and I don't know a single person who celebrates Kwanza. I'm sure the schools teach about it, both city and burb, and some public places have displays that reflect it, but otherwise, it's all Christmas and Hannukah, here.


    Even the Dearborn City Hall has a creche display in front of it.

    Feel good about themselves?
    How do you think they feel when they read the truth about a holiday they thought was genuine? Used, maybe? Betrayed?
