    I was wondering how in the world did you think about Kwanza in Mid-May.

    From what Iíve read about it, the creator wanted to create a holiday for African-Americans so they can celebrate something thatís not commercialized, I guess. But it seems as of late itís going down the same commercial road that the other holidays were going.

    Anyway, what did you read that made you feel this way?

    Kwanza was not meant to be a holiday, it's really supposed to be a way of life for the African American Community.

    i find it to be an excuse... to say...."we have something too.. "when de same people dat celebrating it got children dat robbing people and ain changing their ways....

    Holidays and Historical moments exist because they Represent change, and exlemplify effect..... Kwanza is neither.. and its fabricated.

    The actions of peoples children have nothing to do with them giving respect and promoting their heritage with something spiritual rather than a celebration...

    I am sure there are people who see this as an opportunity to exploit whatever commercial gains they can from it....but on a whole i hope its intention is based more on race and cultural eminence.
