    (CNN)You don't have to be black to understand how Kwanzaa works. All it takes is a kind heart and an open mind willing to learn the history of the holiday that celebrates African-American culture. Here's some common Kwanzaa knowledge everyone should know.You can spell it Kwanzaa or Kwanza Regardless, it's still pronounced "kwahn-zuh." You can listen to this nice man say it here.~~~SNIP~~~You can celebrate both Christmas and Kwanzaa They're not mutually exclusive. Karenga wanted Kwanzaa to be a nonreligious holiday for African-American families to come together and celebrate their ancestral roots. So you can have your merry Christmas and...

    Dear African American Center: Season’s greetings! I wanted to write to you today to share a heartwarming story that will help kick off your annual celebration of Kwanza. It involves a young woman of color who recently finished one of my classes in the Department of Sociology and Criminology. She told me that she thoroughly enjoyed the course and was glad she did not drop it as she was advised to do. Sadly, the people who advised her to drop the class were supporters of the campus African American Center. You are doing a fine job of instilling the values...

    Michelle and I extend our warmest thoughts and wishes to all those who are celebrating Kwanzaa this holiday season. Today [Dec. 26] is the first of a joyful seven-day celebration of African American culture and heritage. The seven principles of Kwanzaa -- unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity and faith -- are some of the very values that make us Americans. As families across America and around the world light the Kinara today in the spirit of umoja, or unity, our family sends our well wishes and blessings for a happy and healthy new year.

    Anywhere we are, Us is." That looks like a line from an Amos 'N Andy show. One can easily imagine that it served as the motto of the Mystic Knights of the Sea, and that it was recited by such characters as The Kingfish, Andy Brown and Algonquin J. Calhoun. In fact, however, the line that I have quoted is the motto of a real organization -- a real organization that was originally named United Slaves but now calls itself The Organization Us (or simply Us or US). It was created some 40 years ago, in Southern California, by a...

    My Triumph Over Kwanzaa! Ann Coulter Wednesday, December 24, 2008 Is it just me, or does Kwanzaa seem to come earlier and earlier each year? This year, I believe my triumph over this synthetic holiday is nearly complete. The only mentions of Kwanzaa I've seen are humorous ones. Most important, for the first time in eight years, President George Bush appears not to have issued "Kwanzaa greetings" to honor this phony non-Christian holiday that is younger than I am. It is a fact that Kwanzaa was invented in 1966 by a black radical FBI stooge, Ron Karenga, aka Dr. Maulana...
  • Rethinking Kwanzaa: Jerry Falwell says America has been duped into accepting illegitimate holiday

    We hear a lot these days about a divided nation. So I began wondering this week why our nation has begun to embrace a relatively new celebration known as Kwanzaa, which is not as innocent as it appears on the surface. Launched in 1966, Kwanzaa is celebrated for seven days, beginning Dec. 26. The weeklong festival was introduced by Ron Karenga (aka Ron Everett), a black author and Marxist devotee, who has a very dubious history. Mr. Karenga's Marxist roots should be a warning signal right off the bat, but there's more to be concerned about here. In 1969, on...

    It's that time of year again. Ahh, just the sight of a Kwanza candle makes me conjure up images of women being tortured with hot irons and vices...Oh wait, that is what the creator of Kwanza was convicted of. What Kwanza should do is conjure up images of a fake holiday designed to promote marxisim and provide a "blacks only" alternative to the white man's Christian holiday.

    DAR ES SALAAM (Reuters) - Tanzanian police arrested two men accused of killing a 9-year-old boy and selling his skin for 20,000 shillings ($18) to make sorcerers' get-rich-quick charms, a senior officer said Friday. Police said they arrested Martin Kalunga, 25, and his associate Nico Benson, 31, in Lilwa village in southern Tanzania Tuesday after neighbors overheard Benson accusing Kalunga of plotting with their buyer to skin him as well. The identity of the buyer was unclear. "The two were arrested after they had a loud quarrel, because Benson suspected Martin of colluding with their buyer to skin him," Suleiman...
  • "The War Against Christmas - Save The 'UNDOCUMENTED'Holiday"

    The war against western culture, traditional American values, Christians, and especially Christmas rages on, with atheists, scrooges, socialists, politically-correct bureaucrats, liberals, and other far-left loonies plotting to eradicate anything that reminds them of where their privileges originated. If it's war they want, though, it's war they should get. Not only did I decide to buy Christmas stamps this year, I decided to buy enough for all of my Christmas cards, AND, for all of my 2005 postal needs. Mortgage, car insurance, school loans; all these bills will have Christmas stamps attached. Upon year's completion, I will purchase enough to last...

    During the holiday season, many people are so busy rushing around worrying about buying gifts, getting the best deal and running over anyone in their path that they tend to forget what they are celebrating. On Thursday, UNO hosted its ninth annual Kwanzaa luncheon in the Milo Bail Student Center Ballroom. Keynote speaker Saidi J. Liwaru stressed the importance of Kwanzaa as an African American holiday as well as a Pan-African holiday. Kwanzaa is a time for knowing one's roots while bettering one's culture. Liwaru is the host of the Real Solutions television program. He said that the timing of...

    BLACKS IN AMERICA have suffered an endless series of insults and degradations, the latest of which goes by the name of Kwanzaa. Ron Karenga (aka Dr. Maulana Ron Karenga) invented the seven-day feast (Dec. 26-Jan. 1) in 1966, branding it a black alternative to Christmas. The idea was to celebrate the end of what he considered the Christmas-season exploitation of African Americans. According to the official Kwanzaa Web site -- as opposed, say, to the Hallmark Cards Kwanzaa site -- the celebration was designed to foster "conditions that would enhance the revolutionary social change for the masses of Black Americans" ...
