2005 KWANZAA CELEBRATIONS (Breaking: Los Angeles King of Kwanzaa found dead!)

ON THIS WEBSITE, YOU WILL FIND THE KWANZAA CELEBRATIONS ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

Kwanzaa is celebrated by many families and communities from December 26, 2005-January 1, 2006. For more information on organizing a Kwanzaa Celebration for your family or community, go to the OFFICIAL KWANZAA WEBSITE

=========================================================================

There was shocking and heartbreaking news for those planning to attend the Kwanzaa Parade in Los Angeles. Former Los Angeles resident and businessman Stanley Tookie Williams, who had lived in San Francisco for the past 24 years, had recently been chosen "King of Kwanzaa" for the Los Angeles Parade. He had told friends that he was looking forward to the parade and considered it a great honor.

Williams had already purchased a brand new tuxedo at the Men's Warehouse after hearing George Zimmer's commercials telling him how good him would look and that Zimmer guaranteed it.

Three nights ago, Williams was found dead on a gurney in the early morning hours. Preliminary reports indicate that he died of a massive dose of some chemicals that had been introduced into his bloodstream with a hypodermic needle. Several witnesses have told the police that the injection was not self-administered.

Williams, a Nobel Peace Prize nominee, as well as a nominee for the Nobel Prize in Literature, was the author of an autobiography as well as nine wonderful and inspiring children's books. During one of the series of shows featuring Williams on KFI in Los Angeles, talk show hosts John and Ken read one of the books on the air. Jamie Foxx, who had starred in a movie based on Williams' life, broke down after learning of the death of his friend.

Kwanzaa officials are scrambling to choose a new King. Exclusive to FreeRepublic, inside sources have also been privately working on a plan to pull off a "Weekend at Bernie's" deal for the parade, but they do not know if they can maintain the body in a natural enough state until parade time. We have been told that they have been experimenting with dry ice, and we will provide updates from our sources as we receive them.

Just as I logged on to FR, up came your headline. It took 5 paper towels and heavy slugs of windex to clean my screen and keyboard. Life is funny, oh yeah!

My kid's public school "holiday" program included a Kwanzaa song and a Mexican Fiesta song. The one Christmas song was about Inns turning away the baby, which was factually incorrect and without any mention of the importance of Jesus.

Could they promote Don King for The Tookster's replacement?

Kwanzaa is so in keeping with Democrat nonsense. It's a fake holiday that appeals to fake people who practice fake "patriotism" and worship fake "war heroes."

I thought Tookie was fried (as in cremated). They can set up his urn on top of the float, can't they? :o)

It's always bothered me that there were actually people who embraced this fake holiday. And that the US Postal Service dignifies it with a stamp.

The schools must be sharing the same politically correct program across the country this year: my youngest son's school "holiday" program, conducted yesterday evening, consisted of the exact same sort of songs.

Which leads to a very interesting question regarding Kwanzaa gifting: what do you give to a Crip who has everything?

King has done a masterful job of hiding his roots in organized crime, including kicking to death a man on the sidewalk. He was a brutal numbers racketeer prior to entering boxing promoting. In 1992, when questioned about his connections to John Gotti by the Senate, King took the Fifth rather than testify. Every time King gets in trouble, he plays the race card. He's a recent convert to the GOP...and quite frankly, the GOP should have rejected him instead of being bought off by his 'diverse' public support and political fundraisers.

Hey doug, how well did your 'childrens' book about John Kerry sell? You sold more copies than Tookie did right??

It's correct celibration for Qkwansas.
Next year the King get's caught in gang cross-fire after fleeing a 7-11 he robs.

Another radical liberal idea gone caput!

Didn't compare him with Tookums; just thought he'd look nice, with all that "big hair" & bombast leading their parade. Would actually give it a touch of class, in an odd way.

And politics & money aside, I still always see King as rather seedy & sleazy, in an entertaining sort of way.

He endorsed Bush but that doesn't make him all that conservative.

Even though it was expensive to produce, I more than got my money back. Not sure of the sales because I gave many of them away. John McCaslin of the WASHINGTON TIMES actually mentioned it in his column.

---King is a thug.---

King is old and mellow like that gangster in the Dirty Harry movie. He's a genuine American character though.

I can't find copies on Amazon or Ebay so it must be treasured by those who have it. I did find Travis McGee's book at Amazon (2) and Jeff Heads Dragon's Fury (4)(all different ones) at Ebay

If their coverage of late is any indication, they are upset indeed. They wanted the Christmas season marred by the race riots they were trying to foment with their All-Tookie/All-Riot rantings.

You can only imagine their angst when these white Liberals went into the heart of South Central and tried to whip up the locals into a "kill whitey for killing Tookie" frenzy. The overwhelming response from the average person on the street was, "Tookie was a gangster punk. He's finally getting what's coming to him." Oh...the Leftist media pain over that slap in their collective faces was a thing of beauty to behold.

Yes..I agree, King is seedy but so is Mcvain, IMO..lol! I don't trust mcVain within an inch of my life.

I think the new "King" of Kwanzaa should be Fairykhan. He can take all the freakish leftish followers up in the mother ship and crash it.

Very funny.

It reminded me of a video of George Zimmer (Men's Warehouse) teaching ebonics.

It's great. But don't go there if you are easily offended.

LOL!

Once again, the haiku in honor of those who chose Tookie to be Ooba (or whatever it was) for their parade:

Jesse, Lou, and Snoop
On King Tookie's Kwanzaa float
Weekend at Bernie's.

One of my all-time favorite movies. Let's see if I can incorporate that into some sort of holiday Kwanzaa song to a Christmas tune. If not, perhaps I could do Barry Manilow's WEEKEND IN NEW ENGLAND.

I should have explained better what was incorrect.

True there was no vacancy, but the child wasn't born yet. So it as Joseph and Mary they were rejecting, not the child. The program had the kids going around like they were holding a baby and asking the inn if they had room for this child.
