    It's a contrived holiday by Ron N. Everett who later gave himself the name Maulana Karenga, and his followers. Ron invented the fake holiday back in 1966. Back then Ron Everett was a black nationalist and pretty nasty. He ran the organization called United Slaves (US) which he still heads today under the name The Organization Us or just US. He went to prison from 1971 to 1974 after he and some of his pals tortured two women with a soldering iron and a vise, among other things. Then of course he got a job at California State University Long Beach (CSULB) as the chairman of the Department of Black Studies. Only in California….it appears today he is still at CSULB promoting his fake Kwanzaa holiday and making money off it.

    I went to the Post Office today and saw advertisement for Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and Holiday Stamps.

    I asked if they had any Christmas stamps. They showed me the Holiday stamps.

    I asked why they were called Holiday stamps and not Christmas stamps.

    The clerk said, "Sir, please don't do this. I agree with you..but please don't."

    I didn't. I should have. But I didn't.

    And so you're suggesting what exactly? Do you want Kwanzaa banned?

    to it would seem that the idea that a holiday created of the hatred of whitey gets more respect in the US than Christmas is the point

    Nahhhh, I agree with the clerk. After all, what could he/she do about it?

    Write a letter to W instead, I hear he's a Gawd fearin man. Must be his policy as well ya think? If not he can fit it.*Sarcasm off*

    When I looked into this stamp thing a few weeks ago, I found NO Christmas stamps had been produced since 1999. I find that hard to believe, but that's what I remember reading. I think it was even on the USPS web site.

    Yeah, that one I think I read would continue to be printed, but as a "Holiday" stamp. I think that's what I remember...Hell, I dunno.

    I saw all of their "Holiday" stamps. None had the "C" word.

    So if someone's black, do they automatically celebrate Kwanzaa? Do I say Merry Christmas or Happy Kwanzaa to a black guy? Will he think I'm being sarcastic if I do?

    Maybe this is why some just say "Happy Holidays." I did say Merry Christmas to a black guy today, turned out he was a Jehovah's Witness. Of course, it wouldn't have made a difference in this case had I said Happy Holidays.


    BTW, Dr Phil is signing off for the day, he said Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy Hannukah. I guess he doesn't go for this Kwanzaa stuff.
