When we hear about Kwanzaa , most of us don't know what it means. Be honest. We wouldn't guess that it's a tradition that dates back to one of the most controversial and oppressive times in our country - the African-American Civil Rights Movement.

Since I don't have a lot of money around Christmas, would it be OK to use the menorah for my Kwanzaa celebration instead of buying Kwanzaa candles?

Kwanzaa. Another fake religion invented in 1966 by an ex-Con proponent of the Black Power movement and which is celebrated only in the U.S.

Originally Kwanzaa was meant to be an alternative to Christmas, because Jesus was considered psychotic, and that Christianity was a white religion that black people should shun. Sounds a lot like Islam.

Must be money to be made selling black candles!

1. Kwanzaa is NOT a religion doofus

2. Why do you care if people observe/celebrate a holiday?

3. Is anybody forcing you to buy black candles or celebrate Kwanzaa?

1. Look up the definition of religion. This "system of beliefs" fits.

2. I could not care less what anybody wants to celebrate. If somebody wants to bay at the full moon every month then go for it! The original article is titled "Kwanzaa: a week for Buffalo to celebrate"! Not me Pal. I'll leave that to YOU!

3. Kwanza is the currency in Angola. Now tell me this as nothing to do with money!

It appears that you are a star student from the tbird School of Twisted Logic and Literal Misinterpretations!

Again, you claim you "could not care less" what people celebrate, so why bother to comment at all?

If your interpretation of "A Week for Buffalo to Celebrate" leads you to think that all Buffalonians must observe and celebrate Kwanzaa, then you are very simple-minded. I am not Black and I do not celebrate Kwanzaa. I never thought that EVERYONE in Buffalo should celebrate as a result of reading this title.

Kwanzaa means money??? Just like tbird...what does that matter and why do you care what people spend their money on? In this economy, any spending is a good thing!

You never answered my question...Is anybody forcing YOU to celebrate Kwanzaa?

So, do you really have something against Kwanzaaa or is just the Black people and their culture that you have major issues with?
