It’s Time for the Annual Fraud on Gullible Blacks—Kwanzaa!

By Don Boys, Ph.D.

Vice President Kamala Harris made a fool of herself this week when she and her husband posted a video touting her family’s celebration of Kwanzaa as a small child. The vice president, known for an inherent, incredible, and embarrassing tendency to exaggerate, insulted every American as she pandered to them and promoted her impossible lies. Kwanzaa, the humanist holiday, was created two years after she was born and did not become popular among black families until the late 1970s and early 80s.  However, to her credit, she did not cackle like a drunk Atlantic puffin, known as the “clown of the sea.”

Harris is known as, well America’s Vice President in charge of the southern border who finally visited it but 800 miles from where the problems are! But she can finally say, “I’ve been to the border.”

Kwanzaa is a massive con job aimed at gullible Blacks, especially those who want to “seek their African roots.” It seems too many Blacks have been very careless in buying into anything that seems to support their “cause.” But then, Liberals—black and white—have an incredible tendency to accept falsehood and a boundless capacity to respect any faith but Christianity. Many city officials try each December to ban nativity scenes, Christmas carols, candy canes, and even Christmas trees from public places, but the non-holiday holiday Kwanzaa has been accepted and even promoted as mainstream.

Internet information is not as independent and even-handed as we are led to believe as revealed in’s treatment of the holiday fraud of Kwanzaa: “Dr. Maulana Karenga, professor and chairman of Black Studies at California State University, Long Beach, created Kwanzaa in 1966. After the Watts riots in Los Angeles, Dr. Karenga searched for ways to bring African Americans together as a community. He founded US, a cultural organization, and started to research African ‘first fruit’ (harvest) celebrations….”

Note the positive presentation of a fraud in a time when it is safe to savage anything Christian: nativity scenes, the greeting Merry Christmas, Christ-honoring songs, etc. If David Duke, a former KKK member did something comparable do you think any media would simply provide the facts without mentioning he was or is a clan member?

Moreover, the internet almost always identifies Karenga as “Dr.” and that is correct and reasonable, but the mainstream media and many websites often refuse to use my doctorate (two earned doctorates). Not complaining, just pointing out again that the radical left is inconsistent, inaccurate, as well as insane.

For the record, Kwanzaa has nothing to do with Christ or the Bible. It is racist and was founded by a man with a criminal record. The AP reported that some Blacks “consider[ing] it a pagan holiday are taking issue with its founder, a black nationalist, and ex-con – he was convicted of torturing two women.” The article also correctly revealed that the holiday came out of the Black Power movement of the 1960s. However, the AP treated the issue kindly and without providing the unvarnished truth since it would be so devastating to thinking Blacks.

On December 26, 1966, Ron Karenga and his family and friends lit a candle at the kick-off of Kwanzaa, a new holiday to remember their African roots. However, Karenga admitted to the Washington Post that Kwanzaa was not African and they hated whites. Karenga wrote what I call, the mission statement for Kwanzaa fanatics as cited from his Quotable Karenga: “The sevenfold path of blackness is think black, talk black, act black, create black, buy black, vote black, and live black.” That is black separatism (black supremacy) and racist to the core. Let me suggest it should be “Think American, talk American, act American, create American, buy American, vote American and live American.” Or, how about “think Christian, talk Christian, act Christian, create Christian, buy Christian, vote Christian, and live Christian!” I suppose someone might call me a closed-minded bigot for that suggestion.

The Black Panther Party was formed in Oakland, California by Huey Newton and Bobby Seale in 1966 to protect Blacks and black neighborhoods from “police brutality.” However, those lofty goals changed with time. While the party was always socialist, it became more vicious and violent. They and other black groups spewed bigotry, intolerance, hatred, sexism, anti-Semitism, dogmatic historical revisionism, and violence throughout North America. Many black nationalists exemplified more hatred for whites than a love of their own race. Most Black Nationalist leaders were critical of Martin Luther King’s professed nonviolent approach to civil rights and sarcastically called him “De Lawd.”

Into such an atmosphere entered Ron Karenga, founder of United Slaves (a violent nationalist rival to the Black Panthers) and a dupe of the FBI. The tension between the Black Panthers and the United Slaves reached the highest level over who would head up the new Afro-American Studies department at UCLA. Each radical group supported different radical candidates.

Then on January 17, 1969, fewer than 200 students gathered on the UCLA campus to discuss their differences. During the meeting, John Jerome Huggins and Alprentice Carter of the Panthers verbally attacked Karenga, much to the dismay of his followers. After the meeting, two United Slave members, George and Larry Stiner, confronted Huggins and Carter in a hallway and shot and killed them, and the fat was in the fire.

George and Larry finally were sentenced to life in San Quentin prison. In 1975, the two brothers, fearing an alleged retaliatory plot by white prison guards, escaped from San Quentin (with help from a black prison guard) and fled to Suriname. In 1994, Larry turned himself in to United States officials and returned to America, but George’s whereabouts are still unknown.

On September 17, 1971, Ron Karenga was sentenced to one to ten years in the slammer on felonious assault and false imprisonment counts. The charges stemmed from a May 9, 1970, incident in which Karenga and two others tortured two women. According to the Los Angeles Times, “Deborah Jones, who once was given the title of an African queen, said she and Gail Davis were whipped with an electrical cord and beaten with a karate baton after being ordered to remove their clothes. She testified that a hot soldering iron was placed in Miss Davis’ mouth.”

At his trial, Ron Karenga’s sanity was in question, and a psychiatrist declared, “This man now represents a picture which can be considered both paranoid and schizophrenic with hallucinations and elusions, inappropriate affect, disorganization, and impaired contact with the environment.” The psychiatrist observed that Karenga talked to his blanket and imaginary persons and believed he had been attacked by dive-bombers!

My two-year-old grandson also talked to his blanket, had imaginary friends, and believed he was attacked by peg-legged, one-eyed Caribbean pirates but he has not been offered a position at a major university as was Karenga! Eight years later California State University at Long Beach made Karenga the head of its Black Studies Department! I think he should be making license plates in a state prison.

If Blacks (or anyone else) want to celebrate Kwanzaa that is their right; however, it is my right to set the record straight. Kwanzaa is grounded in violence, corruption, and deceit. Furthermore, it has an admitted humanist foundation, so professing Christians should not go near the thing. Neither should black Americans!

The U.S. Postal Service put its stamp (pun intended) of approval on the pagan holiday by issuing a stamp honoring Kwanzaa which only proves how shallow, senseless, and shameful the Postal Service is. Moreover, the New York Times and other major media have positively pitched Kwanzaa as legitimate. Those people wear the “merit badge” of political correctness. In fact, they flaunt it without shame.

For those Blacks (and any others) who don’t like America or prefer another culture, I’ll help them migrate out of this country! There is plenty of room in Africa.

While some of the “seven principles” (unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity, and faith) of Kwanzaa seem commendable, they must be read within the total socialist, Marxist, and anti-white context in which they were developed by a very unstable guy.

The Kwanzaa Information Center also notes that the Kwanzaa flag “has become the symbol of devotion for African people in America to establish an independent African nation on the North American Continent.” Uh, I believe that is a dictionary definition of apartheid that was so hated in South Africa. Of course, white Americans will fund the whole mess.

Blacks can celebrate whatever they choose but I will remind them that if it is Kwanzaa, they recognize a “holiday” that was designed by a hateful, bigoted, black Marxist who reportedly talks to his blanket, has imaginary friends, and believed he was attacked by dive-bombers! Watch out, they’re coming out of the clouds at the two o’clock position!

Furthermore, Nancy Pelosi used Kwanzaa to pander to all Americans on the House floor, but Nancy, It’s Kwanzaa, not Shwanza!

Maybe Blacks and Whites should be more careful in choosing their holidays and their heroes and their House members.

Fact, Fraud or Faith?

by Don Boys, Ph.D.


Only an uninformed fanatic says that evolution or creation can be proved scientifically. Christians believe in creationism because we believe in the veracity of the Bible but we also have scientific evidence to support our position. In every debate I’ve had with evolutionary scientists, the arrogant, asinine accusation is made, “Well, evolution is scientific while creationism is religion.” Evolution is about as scientific as a voodoo rooster plucking ceremony in Haiti. Almost.
