More Kwanzaa

From a reader:

The other reader’s response was good, but it skipped over the most offensive notion, common to most Afro-centric ideas, that Kwanzaa supports – that the varying cultures of the entire continent of Africa can be swept into a singular celebration. It never ceases to amaze me how the general population allows Afro-centrists to paint with such a broad brush. It strikes me as a curious form of reverse stereotyping generated by a segment of the African American community that demeans the legitimate cultural heritage of blacks in the United States. Even if that heritage is one that includes slavery.
