He's an idiot for reviling Kwaanza. Maulana Karenga may quite possibly have been a reverse racist and a black separatist. But America honors Columbus with Columbus Day, and he was responsible for the genocide and enslavement of the Native people. We put Andrew Jackson the $20 bill. He caused the brutal removal of the Cherokee people on the Trail of Tears.

This fool is just looking for something to make a political issue of, thereby wasting taxpayers' time and dollar. He, not Kwaanza, is dividing Americans. What, it's a "made-up" holiday? I've heard that from Rev. Pat Robertson, another right-wing idiot. Christmas was a made-up holiday two thousand years ago. Instead of focusing on issues of bread and butter or law and order, this genre of politician wastes our time ranting about symbols.

i like the idea of kwaanzaa and my family actually celebrates it. but maybe it needs to be reinvented and combined with something else to make it more relevant to specific aa heritage, instead of just vague abstract concepts.
