I always wondered about Kwanzaa because i am originally from South Africa and no such thing exists over there. You remind me of my one political science professor. His kid had to do something on Columbus so he made him do the truthful version, it didn't sit too well with the school. I'm glad you are taking a stand on this, kick their ass.
The Red, or the blood, stands as the top of all things. We lost our land through blood; and we cannot gain it except through blood. We must redeem our lives through the blood. Without the shedding of blood there can be no redemption of this race.

Plus, we‘ll talk to a black preacher who believes Kwanzaa is racist scam, founded by, quote, “a Marxist ex-con, who served four years in prison for torturing two women.” Again, that‘s a quote.
CARLSON: Welcome back. Each year, millions of black Americans observe Kwanzaa, holiday that celebrates the black community and culture. My next guest, though, says Kwanzaa is, quote, “a racist holiday from hell.” The Reverend Jesse Lee Peterson is the founder and president of BOND, a brotherhood organization of a new destiny. He‘s also the author of “Scam: How the Black Leadership Exploits Black America.”
PETERSON: In 1966, Ron Karenga started or founded Kwanzaa. And I have to tell you, there‘s no such thing as Kwanzaa. You can go up and down the coast of Africa, and you‘re not going to find Kwanzaa.

I wish I could give you a big pat on the back. Great job! I only hope that someday when I have children of my own, that I'll have 1/10 of the testicular fortitude which you displayed in that letter!
Please keep us posted on the school's response. My only concern is that your daughter isn't harrassed or teased by any of the other school children for being the only one who isn't taking part in the "Kwanzaa" songs. However far you choose to take this, make sure you don't do it at the expense of your young daughter's treatment from her classmates.

While I agree completely with the letter and want to give you a huge pat on the back for standing up against this, my only question is how you wrote the letter on the 11th, if today is the 7th?
Sorry, but if I say much about "Kwanzaa" I'm just gonna end up pissed off.
