Deconstructing Kwanzaa

Almost as traditional as Kwanzaa itself is the annual deconstruction of it.

Kwanzaa was invented out of whole cloth by a violent 1960s criminal-radical

thug, employs a language spoken by the ancestors of practically no black

Americans at all (and a language which owed its own prominence to its use as

a lingua france for Arab slave traders), celebrates the fruits of harvest at

a time of year when nobody in the world is harvesting anything, promotes

communistic values, etc. etc. My own award for best Kwanzaa-deconstruction

effort this year goes to Rick Rosendall
