Kwanzaa was invented in 1966 – by convicted felon Ron Karenga.
Five years after he invented Kwanzaa, Karenga was sentenced to prison "for torturing two black women by whipping them with electrical cords and beating them with a karate baton after stripping them naked. He placed in the mouth of one of the victims a hot soldering iron, also scarring her face with the device. He put one of her big toes in a vise, and detergent and running water in both their mouths."
At the time he was inventing Kwanzaa, Karenga had also organized a terrorist group at UCLA called "US" (for "United Slaves"). In 1969, Karenga's followers killed two Black Panthers. While he was in prison, Karenga converted to Marxism. This was regarded by California State University at Long Beach as evidence of his being rehabilitated. So they made him director of their black-studies program.
Ah liberalism...don't you love it? Torture and entice to kill...and academia merits you with a department leadership and honors your made up "holiday".
And let's not leave out your Christianity-bashing either:
"The Christian is our worse enemy. Quiet as it's kept, it was a Christian who enslaved us. Quiet as it's kept it's a Christian who burns us. Quiet as it's kept it's a Christian who beats us down on the street; and quiet as it's kept when the thing goes down it'll be a Christian that's shooting us down. You have to face the fact that if the Christian is doing all this there must be something wrong with Christianity."
So I guess Karenga thinks he was just practicing Christianity when he enslaved, burned and beat Deborah Jones and Gail Davis.
