  • If I Told You That There Was A Kwanzaa Link On Ebay, Would You Believe Me? I was just wondering. This is golden to those of us that “enjoy” the origins of said “holiday”.
    That tells us a lot about eBay employee`s education levels. OMG…….Oh well.

    Are You Having An Awesome First Day Of Kwanzaa? Because I am.

    P.S. Don’t start that “it’s not a real holiday” crap. Unless you can provide a birth certificate that says that Jesus was born on Dec. 25 and/or defend Arbor day or Columbus (lost boy) day.
    @Richard M.
    It’s my favorite pastime, lol.
    you should never be embarrassed. I applaud you for asking.

    When in doubt…google it

    Is Kwanzaa A Rip Off Of Hanukkah? Just curious. I mean, I know it was a holiday made up in the 60’s. I am sure it might be important to some, but it just seems like a particular group of individuals wanted to feel special so they could say “Oh we have our own Holiday too!”. Before anyone gets pissy about race, I’ll have you know that I, myself am a Black Jew. Just want to hear from someone else’s point of view.

    • Curator says:

      I come from the same city as Ron Karenga, AKA Dr. Maulana Karenga, the man who invented Kwanzaa. I remember seeing him on TV and I even worked in the Post Office that delivered his mail for a time.
      He seemed to enjoy a having battle of wits with conservative talk show hosts, and so I enjoyed listening to him. He served prison time for torturing two Black women, about the time the holiday Kwanzaa was being started. While he was in jail, psychiatrists reported he appeared to have schizophrenic symptoms; and it may be his delusions motivated some of his crimes. Just guessing.
      Rumor has it he shaves his head because his hair isn’t nappy enough for a Black nationalist. But that is one of the least and most benign of the rumors about him.
      That being said, I am not saying anything good or bad about the celebration of Kwanzaa. If people get something good out of it, I am happy.
      It looks like he did rip off the Hanukkah menorah; but the philosophy of Kwanzaa did not come out of Judaism as far as I can see.

    I asked in both “Jo”
