In a press release entitled “Why Must We Still Hear About Kwanzaa,”

Too be honest, Kwanzaa is just a fake holiday that was just made up in an effort to make people feel better about themselves, but I mean, how can it be dangerous when no one even really celebrates it. I know no one who celebrates it, hell must have never even heard of it and I live in a pretty black dominated community

This is actually the first time I've even heard Kwanzaa mentioned all year.

It would be hilarious if you celebrated Christmas in any manner.

What would you say is a "real" holiday that wasn't made up?

It's like anything associated with black people scares the GOP...even something as irrelevant as Kwanzaa

Xmas and most Religious holidays were created to celebrate significent events within that Religion or the religious culture of that group, Kwanzaa doesn't share that aspect, it was as stated simply made up to give a cultural group a sense of pride in an overarching culture and to give them an alternative to the dominant cultural festivals that they were forced to share in, there is nothing that it centrally celebrates as an focal point as we see in all other religious Holidays.

Look at it this way, what if someone here made up an Holiday called something like Eberwhiting for White Europeans descendants in the US so that they could use as an alternative to the existing holiday and give Blacks an opportunity to celebrate themselves and their history? Who wouldn't find that cock-eyed? But it would in the end be nothing less fake than Kwanzaa, since it is just a white version of it.

Kwanzaa is a bull holiday but most holidays ever mentioned by the media are bull holidays. I, as a black person, never celebrated it except in school when we learned about it. Its current form is just to be given to the token black person for lines in family TV and they don't even do that anymore.
