Skip to comments.The Audacity of Kwanzaa

No word yet on how the Wons will be celebrating Kwanzaa this year. Unfortunately they were unable to make it to the big Kwanzaa parade in Los Angeles. BO was too busy playing golf with the boys oblivious of the wedding plans that were squashed in order to accommodate his tee time - and MO was too busy having her nails done or something.
However I did snag this gif of Lady M practicing her Kwanzaa Karols:
Anyway, it doesnt sound like the Wons missed anything, fake news reports to the contrary: In LA, CBS Station Pretends There Was a Real Kwanzaa Parade Yesterday
Lack of interest didnt stop a good opportunity to hype a fake holiday however:
CBS Los Angeles - Organizers named the theme of this years parade Perfect YOUR Temple, or body. They said it was a call to arms in our constant and ongoing efforts to `perfect our lives.
What pray tell do you do when your temples already perfect?
The gwaride began at the corner of Crenshaw and Adams boulevards, headed south along Crenshaw to Leimert Park, where organizers held a Black Lives Matter rally.
All lives matter, its just that some matter more than others
Some participants walked the parade carrying signs underlining important issues to the community, such as police brutality, home foreclosures, judicial corruption, transparency in government and environmental racism.
Because nothing says holiday like community organizing for social justice. And shopping.
Poster boy for the Pants Up Dont Loot backlash
During Kwanzaa, a candelabrum called a kinara is lit and ears of corn representing each child in the family are placed on a traditional straw mat.
Is it racist of me to think this vignette looks racist?
African foods such as millet, spiced pepper balls and rice are often served. Some people fast during the holiday, and a feast is often held on the final night.
Okay, 1) uh, NO to the millet, spiced pepper balls and rice. 2) Fast? On vacation? Thats a joke, right? 3) Every night is a feast around here.
Kwanzaa was created in 1966 by Maulana Karenga, now chair of Africana Studies at Cal State Long Beach, in what he called an audacious act of self-determination.
Well, we do know a thing or two about audacity.

I heard that only about 5% of blacks in America observe Kwanzaa. It is absurd to claim it is a widespread celebration of African heritage.
The seven principles of Kwanzaa sound like socialist leaning concepts to me.
Perhaps yet another entitlement for practitioners of Kwanzaa is to attend Kwanzaa Cake making sessions taught by Andrew Cuomo’s GF, Sandra Lee?
The “seven principles” are EXACTLY the same, word for word, as the seven precepts of the Symbionese Liberation Army that kidnapped Patty Hearst (Look it up, you’ll be amazed). Kwanzaa is a completely contrived holiday invented in the ‘60s by Ron Karenga, a violent black militant.
Mo usually hangs with Oprah and some of their BFFs to get their groove back enjoying music like the tune performed by their friend JayZ for them at the White House
Most of the people who “celebrate” Kwanzaa are White big city liberal female teachers.
Semi-homemade cake for a semi-original holiday.
Lets make up some more fictious holidays!
1. Bowanza—A black Halloween with black ghosts and voodoo.
2. Cowanza—a celibration of the Cow and milk.
3. Treeanza—a celiberation of Trees for all tree huggers and treehouse dwellers.
4. Amwanza—to honor Amaway and its founding.
5. Rahwanza—to honor left handed people of all races.
6. Howanza—to honor Native American culture an vistories of Indians over white—Celibrated on June 28th.
7. Sharpwanza—to honor all things Al Sharpton—celibrate by holding a riot and buring a business.
