Every year I post a piece on the troubled history of Kwanzaa. This year will be no exception. Note that some of the newspaper articles I quote are several years old and may no longer be online.
Each year, with the onset of Christmas, we are treated to another gauzy, fluff piece about how great Kwanzaa is by yet another PC spewing columnist. This year, among many others, we find aggrandizement such as that in The Record from New Jersey with, "Kwanzaa sheds light on pride, heritage; Celebration of African-American culture spreads," and the Huffintgon Post with its titled, "Kwanzaa Detroit 2011: Events Celebrate Holiday's 7 Values ." We even find such helpful sites as TeacherPlanet.com’s, "Kwanzaa Resources for Teachers." Yes, the world is filled with celebratory lionization of Kwanzaa.
