Unfortunately, your opinion doesn't make it so.
I suppose that he mentioned it because, in no particular order, a) it is a holiday that some Americans observe, and b) by mentioning it he deprives others of the opportunity to call him/Republicans racist. I would think conservatives would have a whole lot more to do than join DU in bashing the President.
Does anyone know: Did Ronald Reagan send out Kwanzaa greetings?
I just want to know why we don't get a day off for it? I'll celebrate any holiday when it gets me out of work!
No one is bashing..
We dis-agree...Kawanza is not a holiday it is something made up. The Holiday is Christmas and Hannukkah celebrated by all creeds and races.
Kawanza has no place except in someone's mind.
Ronald Reagan never issued Kwanzaa greetings, because before Bill Clinton was president the only people who had heard of Kwanzaa were the more leftist Black Panthers.
This announcement was issued by the State Dept. I am going to go out on a limb and guess that our own Secretary of State will not be celebrating Kwanzaa this year.
That's a lame defense of this stupid P.C. move by the President.
Reagan? In your dreams. He struggled with signing the King Observance into law.
