It may sound politically incorrect but, since the African-Americans have their Kwanzaa, would it be too problematic for Caucasian-Americans to also have a special day-- a holiday where white folks celebrate their ethnicity?

Not trying to sound contemptuous or dismissive, I think it would be a good thing for everyone to have their own holiday to celebrate their cultural heritage. I propose the holiday known as:
CAUCASEE

I'm not sure just yet how it will work but I'll be thinking about it. Maybe it will just be a simple spin-off of Kwanzaa.

For our African-American members, HAPPY KWANZAA!!!!

White folks had a winter holiday known as Yule, but it was absorbed by Christmas.

We already have Festivus.

Didn't you know that everyday is a celebration, if you're white?

The blacks I know all practice observing Christmas just like everybody else. Kwanzaa is only important to leftist college professors and news media scum.

One of my company's African engineers (not "African-American", he is a black from Africa) told me that no one from Africa has ever heard of Kwanzaa. He even called around to check.

Thats b ecause it was invented by this dude.......






The Black Mr Potato head with a beard. "Maulana Karega", AKA Ron Everett.

He was born on a chicken farm in Parsonsburg, Maryland, the 14th child of a Baptist minister. A Black Panther***** in the 60's, he was convicted of felonious assault and false imprisonment for assaulting and torturing two women. After he got out, in the 70's he invented Kwanzaa.

I am Black, am from a huge ass family, with a shit pile of friends and friends of family that cover the entire socio-economic demograph of Black America.

I do not know one single person who celebrates Kwanzaa, nor can even tell you the principles of Kwanzaa. I bet 80% do not know Karenga invented it, and I bet 99% dont know his real name.



So Ron can have Kwanzaa, and lawdog can have Caucasaa, and the rest of us will have a Merry Christmas.

Correction- He was in United Slaves- A rival group to the Panthers

Sorry for the bad info!

You wanna know where "Kwanzaa" came from? Read this. The good part is about midway through.

Hint: The shit ain't "African": The Story Behind "Kwanzaa"

ETA: It appears Cav Vet summarized it well enough!

Hey, not a problem. The white version could be "invented" by Charles Manson!

As a subnote- after confusing his membership in the Panthers, when he was really a US, I went to do some more reading. I didnt know he founded the US, and they were considered more radical than the Panthers.




Anyway, this guy.......




Who you should know from FNC, a well known Black conservative, Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, has in fact been very critical of Ron and Kwanzaa....

Fricasee would make more sense and if there is fried chicken involved, something practically everyone has in common. We could even fix up a mess of tofu for the vegetarians.

As far as I can tell the only people who actually recognize "Kwanzaa" are ubber-PC white liberals and the media YMMV.

And the dolts that follow them.

These are the same people who claim kwanzaa (doesn't deserve to be capitalized) is a real celebration from Africa, but that Christmas and Hannuka were just made up.

Yeah, I knew that. But this guy was confused, the talking heads on the news made it sound like old African tradition. So he came in, "What's all this Kwanzaa stuff? I never heard of it. Nobody I know in Africa has ever heard of it." When I told him it was an invented "celebration", he laughed. Thought the inventer had really pulled a fast one on everyone.
