I know I know, I must either be racist or insensitive or automatically both in the eyes of all liberals or the liberal inclined when I say this but I find it totally interesting that I am now living in South Africa and find NOTHING showing their attention to Dr. Maulana Karenga's Kwanzaa INVENTION.
I have asked about it I get snickers and many 'deer-in-the-headlight' looks.
Christmas is the order of the day during the holiday season. It is celebrated in the same way however even though the government of this country is in many ways corrupt the schools are actually allowed to speak about (gasp) Jesus and Christmas and all the things surrounding it. No, they are not in school over that holiday as it is their mid summer, but you can go to the American International School in Johannesburg and find the Peace Corps liberals who are teaching kids in liberal theology. I am sure their goal is indoctrination in being against such things. Interesting to note it costs nearly 18,000 dollars US to have a kid go there but a better than average private school is less than 3,000. hmmmmmmmm.
Doesn’t really seem like it’s catching on here, either...
You in Cape Town? I grew up in Sea Point...
Well what do you expect for a pretend holiday? I guess there is a “White’ Christmas, a “Blue’ Christmas and now a “Black” Christmas”.....
Merry Christmas everyone....and rember the REAL REASON for the Season.
"Kwanzaa" is totally fictitious - and public celerations of it are an exclusively American delusion.
Kwanzaa is not an African thing, it was made up in the USA by strange leftists
I never heard of it when I was there. Or anywhere in Africa, for that matter.
It was here that it somehow became something to somone.
Kwanzaa is a pseudo-Marxist scam invented by an ex-con, having nothing to do with any real African traditions, but economically supported by the greeting card industry and the demented PC liberal charlatans.
Real Africans laugh loudly when you try to explain the incoherent Kwanzaa mumbo-jumbo.
I guess folks in SA will have to buy their extension cords and soldering irons for themselves.
I’d be more tolerant of it if Karenga wasn’t a vicious thug.
Dr.Ron “Maulana” Karenga started this “holiday” in 1966. It is a load of crap started by a racist leftist.
Kwanzaa, Christmas, and Hanukkah are too stressful. That’s why Festivus for the rest of us was created.
Just like Chow Mein, the fortune cookie and pizza!
I have met exactly one person in my life that celebrated Kwanzaa. She was a black gal who held a degree in African studies. She wore the african hats and all that stuff.
While she was off at school studying some airy BS that wouldn’t get her a job, her kid would come around asking for food.
She was a nice gal, but had her priority’s all wrong.
BTW Zaire could murder a baloney sandwich! L0L
Why would there be Kwanza in Africa? It was invented in California in the 70’s, as I recall.
(Matunda Ya Kwanzaa)
For real, this is a sample Kwanzaa photo greeting card on Shutterfly. ROFL.
