Reminds me of how my roommate freshman yr said she was glad there was slavery.
And would argue with you about how she wasn't African.

The worst offender I've ran into was this African guy.
Me and him were " talking" and were getting close.
But then we started having deeper convos.

Man he had so much white praise bursting from his heart and talked about the pros of slavery and how I just don't see the silver lining?

It blew my mind .
Had to leave that 'lone.

I just remembered, my best friend's family celebrates Kwanzaa. They also celebrate Christmas and, since her step-dad is Jewish, Hanukkah. The holiday season is the sh*t at that their house.Clap

I shared the article because it summed up my view on the holiday... I don't need a "black" alternative to Christmas... it's a religious holiday, heavily commercialized, but religious nonetheless and has nothing to do with race in my eyes. My education about Black/African history and culture is ongoing, I don't need a few days or a single month set aside to recognize where I come from. 
I could care less if white people started celebrating Kwanzaa by the masses, I still wouldn't. The founder of Kwanzaa wrote a book, The Quotable Karenga, and bashed Jesus/Christianity in it. No thanks. 
You do know that Christmas is not in the bible or any other religious or holy piece of literature.

But your thought process makes sense.

It's what kept slaves, slaves.
