Kwanzaa?? I don't even know any Blacks that celebrate it and haven't seen any recognition of it on TV. Has Charlie Brown or anyone made a Kwanzaa special for TV yet?

Kwanzaa is not a holiday, it's just something made up by crack dealers

Due to circumstances beyond my control I shall not be able to attend your Kwanzaa festivities this year; but would still enjoy receiving a gift. Perhaps you may be disposed to save me one of the left over packages until next year or have someone in your group deliver it or mail it to a postal address. I find African-American history so very fascinating that sometimes in my mind I am able to re-enact some of the historic events now chronicled in African-American history text; such as dear Harriet Tubman and Sojourner Truth in their efforts of operating the 'Underground Railroad.' We still need an 'underground railroad' to improve black economics.
