Halle-leuh! *snaps finger sassily*
All of this.
I don’t understand the stress on being “politically correct” when some people don’t like saying “Happy Holidays. I also don’t understand the anger some people feel when they’re told or the wrong holiday. I say “holidays” myself and I’m a Christian and I don’t expect people to say “Merry Christmas” to me. Hell, I’d find it really cool if someone said “Happy Hannukah” or “Joyous Kwanzaa” to me actually.
While I agree with this (and Happy Chanukah until December 5th, by the way)….
Since when is “African-American” a religion?
It’s not, but I think the op meant to imply that Kwanzaa is an African-American holiday celebrated around the holiday season.
I don’t recall anyone, even black people, celebrating Kwanzaa outside my elementary school Kwanzaa program.
Yes. We replaced our Christmas pageant with a fucking Kwanzaa pageant because my school had an inexplicable hard-on for Africa and political correctness.
My elementary school forced me, a white girl, to don traditional Kente cloth and African jewelry, stand up on stage with my class, and sing terrible, I mean objectively lyrically and musically awful, Kwanzaa songs. Questioning the validity of this got me labeled a racist. Which, in elementary schools where nobody knows their ass from a hole in the ground, makes you an incredibly easy target.
I have no idea how many people celebrate kwanzaa to be honest.
