Confessions of a Kwanzaa dropout:
Why I don’t celebrate the holiday

Washington Post, by Kathryn O’Neal

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 12/13/2012 6:33:56 PM

"I’m so excited!” exclaimed one of my dearest friends as she sat down for my Kwanzaa dinner a few years ago. “This is my very first Kwanzaa celebration.” Candle representing the seven Kwanzaa principles on display during the annual celebration at the Benjamin Banneker Historical Park and Museum. (Mark Gail - The Washington Post) Then only 5-years-old, my perplexed son J responded, “But Auntie Baby, I thought you were American?!?!” J was correct. Auntie Baby was a white American. But J was incorrect in thinking that every American celebrated Kwanzaa. I first started celebrating the holiday

Comments:
The author basically can´t be bothered with celebrating this bogus holiday, but is still deluded with it´s supposed meaning.
She´s an idiot and is making sure her kids will be dopes as well.

Oh, for heavens sake are they dragging that mess out again. Means nothing to most people and if they are trying to make it a national holiday, it will probably be okayed by the limp wristed prez we have.

In accord with the "living Constitution," let me introduce "the seven core principles of ´living´ [or evolving] Kwanzaa":

1. gullibility
2. an inverted, perverse, and self-destructive scale of values
3. bigotry
4. dependency
5. drugs
6. abortion
7. crooked politics
8. rimz
9. bling
10. attraction to Islam and pseudo-Islam

What? "That´s not seven"? Hey -- I said it was the "living Kwanzaa." Don´t be actin´ white.

Don´t feel bad, Kathryn. Residents of Africa don´t celebrate Kwanzaa either. In fact, 99.9% haven´t heard of it.

Karenga is a perverted creep who tortured two women with cords, soldering irons and beat them severely.

Then he turns around and creates bogus "African Studies" programs, and this Kwanzaa lunacy.

Like anything else that has no real anchor in reality, it slowly fades. The great part is that every year that goes by, you hear less and less of this foolishness.

I´m always confused by the "grace" of the African heritage... or whatever. My understanding is that no black society, prior to outside discovery, had invented the wheel, built a two-story structure, domesticated a single beast of burden, or done much of anything other than live in grass huts, and war amongst tribes (with winners enslaving losers). In fact, free blacks in America owned slaves. What use is Kwanzaa??

When I´m not being furious because of the behavior of the blacks I´m around on campus, I´m feeling oh, so sorry for them. They are truly in a terrible mess and just don´t seem to have a knack for solving their problems. No hope. No hope.

I just notice that in her confessions there is not a word about her husband and family celebration.
Just her and her son.

Add to your list poster #7, they still don´t know how to dig wells. It takes White people from the Western world to come to their villages and dig them for them. You´d think after several hundreds of thousands of years Africans would catch on to how to do it.

ARRRGG I take you know nothing about September 19 #2, there is nothing more fun than talking like a pirate but thats OK at least we don´t send cards and expect everyone to bow and scrape down to a bogus holiday.
my mother once sent me a kwanzaa card and I returned it back to her written on the front person and or address unknown. She still celebrates it but at least she doesn´t try to drag me into her delusions any more.

Seems to me that black America has never even been introduced to the seven basic values much less living those values.

The seven core principles of Kwanzaa are: unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity and faith. Keep on dreaming.

Wow, there are some seriously mean posts about this lady´s opinion. Both in the WP and here. I won´t speculate on truth of them.

Anyway, I don´t see how Black people will ever truly move forward until they knock it off with the togetherness and collectivism crap. Seriously, when a group of people´s reason to get together is because their skin color is varying shades darker than White people´s you´ve got trouble - as we all well know. What a lame way to live, even if you make up a bunch of fancy-sounding "principles" for all of you to admire.

Personally, I only get together with people I like, instead of just any jerk I may find out I want to kill.

As I´ve said before, ideology is the only thing that really matters. As a White conservative, I´d far rather be around conservative Blacks than liberal Whites (shudder!!)

Africa is a continent,not a country.
Most American blacks are descended from west African ancestors.
Kwanzaa and all the language and most of the principles associated with it come from Swahili, an east African language.
These people don´t even know their own heritage. Kwanzaa ain´t it.

This was an invented holiday coming from black studies and other invented Ebonics endeavors .
It has as much importance as naming a child Female or Shassnita.

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

Global warming is not being taken seriously and time is running out to avoid consequences like flooded cities and dried out farmland, World Bank President Jim Yong Kim said Thursday. "We are quickly coming to the point where we are not going to be able to keep global warming below two degrees Celsius," Kim said at the start of the IMF-World Bank spring meetings in Washington. "Warming by two degrees Celsius is going to have major implications.... 40 percent of the arable land in Africa will be gone at two degrees Celsius; Bangkok could very well be underwater at two

It was a busy Saturday afternoon at Penn Square and this was happening up on the second floor in front of a growing crowd. A woman, accused of shoplifting, now topless and wrestling with security on the ground. Her bare chest exposed to everyone who walks by. Almost immediately people start getting out their cell phones and capturing the shirtless showdown including the person who captured this video you´re watching. The man who shot this cell phone video walked out of Dillards and immediately saw a nearly naked brawl between a topless woman and a mall security guard. Witnesses say the security officer called

An autopsy on Peaches Geldof was inconclusive and toxicology tests will be conducted in an attempt to determine what killed the 25-year-old celebrity, police said Wednesday. Geldof was pronounced dead by paramedics at her home in southeast England on Monday. Kent Police said a post-mortem examination had not revealed the cause and a toxicology report could take several weeks. Geldof, the daughter of Irish musician Bob Geldof and the late TV presenter Paula Yates, had worked as a model, writer and television show host. She grew up in the glare of Britain´s press, which reveled in the late-night antics of her teenage years, and

Why President Obama
wants the economy to fail
Daily Caller, by John Jordan    Original Article
Posted By: Scottyboy- 4/9/2014 1:23:42 PM     Post Reply
The President is no economic illiterate, despite what conservatives think. He understands basic macroeconomics just fine, thank you – but with a twist. Mainstream Democrats worship at the altar of the New Deal. It’s an article of faith that massive government spending pulled America out of the Great Depression. (With all respect to Paul Krugman, the truth is more complicated, but that’s not within the scope of this article.)The president’s view of spending, deficits and debt is not merely Keynesian theory run amok. Its origins and objectives are far more terrifying. Where the traditional Democratic playbook for economic downturns was provided

WASHINGTON — About the only thing former President Ronald Reagan doesn´t have named after him is a mountain, not one recognized by the federal government anyway.(snip)Rep. Jared Huffman, D-Calif., said he thought DeFazio´s amendment was "terrific" but wanted to take it a step further and name the planet after Reagan. "We may want to consider going big with this Reagan-naming enthusiasm," Huffman said. "I´m beginning to see some possibilities in this." Huffman said his reasoning was that if the planet were named after Reagan, then Republicans might be more concerned with taking up legislation dealing with global warming.

Poll: 62 Percent Of Americans Believe

A majority of Americans believe that President Barack Obama’s signature health care law will be repealed. A new Rasmussen Reports poll found that 62 percent of likely voters believe that Republicans will repeal Obamacare, which recently marked its fourth anniversary. Only 23 percent of those polled believe that the health care law has been a success, compared to 46 percent who describe the law as a failure. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, offered a Republican alternative to Obama’s health care overhaul last week, saying states should play a greater role in containing health care costs while

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon.

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
