Kwanzaa, the racialist winter holiday alternative

There is no other winter holiday I hate more than Kwanzaa. And since my children keep being exposed to it in School, I figured I would help other parents out there understand what Kwanzaa is all about and why I hate it with every fiber of my being.

Ancient roots

Kwanzaa was not established in Africa. It is not an ancient tradition.

Kwanzaa was established by Maulana Karenga, a convicted felon known for his involvement in several “black nationalist” groups that were quite prevalent in the 60s. Kwanzaa was invented upon Karenga’s release in 1966. Got that? Kwanzaa is a whopping 44 years old. Moreover, it was started in the ancient African metropolis known as Los Angeles.


Kwanzaa is celebrated after Christmas, before New Years. Why? What magical significance does this have?

Karenga even considered the benefits of post-Christmas sales for those who purchase Kwanzaa gifts.

Yeah, so much for that whole “we’re all about getting back to ‘mother earth'” nonsense. The reality is that Kwanzaa was established in direct opposition to what early adopters saw as “white holidays”. No matter how you slice it, race is a huge part of Kwanzaa.

It’s not about race at all

Kwanzaa is a celebration that has its roots in the black nationalist movement of the 1960s, and was established as a means to help African Americans reconnect with their African cultural and historical heritage by uniting in meditation and study of African traditions and Nguzu Saba, the “seven principles of blackness” which Karenga said “is a communitarian African philosophy”.

The real purpose of Kwanzaa is pretty clear. It’s to keep race hustlers in business by a lame attempt to keep people focused on race.

Even a drunken orgy would be better

Even compared to the drunken orgies that are known to have occurred around Winter Solstice celebrations in the past, Kwanzaa is worse. At least the pagans weren’t celebrating a holiday made up to combat other holidays.


Kwanzaa is a cheap knock off of Hanukkah with bits of Christmas cheer butchered and thrown in just to keep the poor kids who are made to celebrate it from feeling too bad. But they should feel bad, because Kwanzaa is a not only a manufactured holiday, it is a racialist manufactured holiday.

The only good reason for anyone to celebrate Kwanzaa is if you are racialist. That is, you are interested in setting race relations back a few decades by keeping everyone fixated on race, a particular one I might add.

Likewise, the only happy Kwanzaa will be the last one where everyone realizes it as the bad joke it was to begin with.

  1. We really feel your true message (of love and understanding?) with your insightful "Things I Hate" post (or, is it just one post of one thing you hate).

    Amen, my racist brother, and Happy Holidays!

  2. Dear Brother Love: It is not your diatribe or, my misinterpretation of your Fox News rich vocabulary (Really, racism and racialist are different words?) that I found disturbing. It was just your outright self-professed "hatred" for the holidays and traditions of others—no matter what they be.

    But, upon reading your post again I will apologize for calling you a racist (as I now see that you were writing this from the black man's perspective). Yes, this is a word that can be hurtful and mislabel those who's message is clearly labeled otherwise.

    Amen, my brother, and may the new year find you using the faith you have inside of you to—maybe—start the "Things I Love" postings.

    Love, Dumbass

    Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

    • Thanks for following up Mushi.

      The reason I was harsh earlier is because you obviously had not taken the time to read my post, much less understand what or why I wrote what I did about hating Kwanzaa. Even from your follow-up I still have my doubts as to your understanding of the issue in question.

      However be that as it may I hope you at least learn from this encounter to stop and read before you offer a knee-jerk comment. Not just on my blog, but in general. After all, Proverbs teaches us to stop and think before we talk. I believe the same can be said and applied online.
