The term Kwanzaa comes from the phrase, "matunda ya kwanza" which means "first fruits."

Is this where the term "fruits & nuts" comes from?

BTW, how many blacks live in Nebraska? I would expect they don't have many. So I doubt there is a big uproar demanding Kwanza celebrations.

The answer is 4%.

If you'd stayed awake in history you would have remembered that Kansas as well as Nebraska were targets of potential Souv'rn extensions of slavery.

Soon-to-be Confederate enemies were already bringing African-Americans to the territories.

People who forget the Jayhawk Wars are doomed to repeat them!

I thought it meant, "No Worries."
