why do they need kwanzaa too? especially since they use an ear of corn as a symbol for kwanzaa and corn isn't even african in origin. black people not only get an entire history month, they get a holiday created just to celebrate their racial heritage. it's just goes to show, it's not always about equal rights or anything such as that. sometimes it boils down to wanting special treatment because someone still rides on the gravy train of their ancestors past wrongs done to them. btw, the guy who concieved kwanzaa ron karenga. he was convicted and imprisoned in 1971 for false imprisonment and felony assault, he kept two black women captive for two days against their will. yet this pseudointellectual jackass and bully gets his own holiday? i bet if a white guy did this to two women of any race, they'd never allow him to have his idea for a federally recognised holiday to become a reality.
