    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. No culture on earth celebrates a harvesting ritual in December, for instance, and the implicit pledges about human dignity don't necessarily jibe with such still-common practices as female circumcision and polygamy. The inventors of Kwanzaa weren't promoting a return to roots; they were shilling for Marxism. They even appropriated the term "ujima," which Julius Nyrere cited when he uprooted tens of thousands of Tanzanians and shipped them forcibly to collective farms, where they proved more adept at cultivating misery than banishing hunger.

    Even the rituals using corn don't fit. Corn isn't indigenous to Africa. Mexican Indians developed it, and the crop was carried worldwide by white colonialists.

    The fact is, there is no Ur-African culture. The continent remains stubbornly tribal. Hutus and Tutsis still slaughter one another for sport.

    It's a totally made up holiday. I don't know anyone who actually celebrates it.

    Apparently Nancy Pelosi does.

    Most white liberals think that black people actually celebrate it, so they think that they are showing solidarity by giving lip service to it.

    I think part of the celebration involves eating donuts, I can do that.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    The Uhuru, aka International People's Democratic Uhuru Movement, in league with many black people in academia, particularly at black high schools and colleges where this will go unchallenged, promote the shibboleth of Africa as a single race and culture continent. They maintain that all divisions one finds in Africa are residual European Colonialism. Essential to this meme is that North Africa in general and Egypt in particular were originally populated and civilized by Negroid people, only becoming Caucasian when conquered and oppressed by the Greeks, Romans, and Arabs. This is, of course when they aren't claiming that Greeks, Romans, and Arabs were actually Negroid people. It's sad.

    There is an excellent book by respected professor (who unlike many in the opposite camp actually reads and writes Egyptian, Greek, etc.._) called : Not Out Of Africa: How "Afrocentrism" Became An Excuse To Teach Myth As History . I'm not a big reader, but I did read this book and it should be required in any respectable college.... but of course it wouldn't be. Young black people are fed a lot of bullshit in the name of "self esteem" and "empowerment". While colleges are complicit by not taking an academic stand against this crap for fear of being called racist.

    Anyway, it's a good read:

    I would add that the Mexicans are promoting the same bullshit in regards to the Americas (which they consider one continent). The Marxist Zapatista Mexicans who invade this country and scream "Racist!" when Americans want a secure population and border, maintain that they are "free to roam our continent". They refer to "Indigenous peoples" in universal terms , infantilizing the Amerindian nations and in complete disregard for the race that there were different nations/races and cultures/societies long before Europeans are known to have arrived. Of course, they completely deny that the pre-colombian peoples of the Americas were racial hybrids already.

    The best part , of course, is when they show the fierce and proud American Indian, supposedly before the murderous Europeans arrived, sitting on a horse. LOL!

    Ya, before he sends his soldiers into a village of other Indians to rape and pillage the settlement. Apparently, Indians just sat around an open fire singing kumbiya.

    Speaking of Indians, is there anyone that can tell me why jackson made them walk the trail of tears? For some reason I have this feeling that the liberal education system taught me something that was designed to make students hate Americans.

    The Military does. Especially at the PX.

    My oldest daughter was made to study it in 5th grade. That's where I originally found this article.
