Racial Profiling

I think that the cartoon nails it.



And just to reassure you that my heart is in the right place:


The holiday event where voodoo and Christmas meet.

  1. Kwanzaa's the best of holidays. I like it's mid/late 1960s invention. Some libs get indignant when that's pointed out and "fact check" on their iphones. Then they change the subject.

    1. It was invented by a professor in Southern California as the black alternative to Christmas. I really don't care who celebrates what. However, if ever there was a phoney holiday, it's Kwanzaa

  2. Shouldn't there be some yellow stripes in that Kwanza-Valentine, besides the red, black, and green? And instead of a heart-shape probably a big, green, five-pointed leaf-shape. The "professor" was an ex-convict Ronald McKinley Everett who started going by the name of Maulana Ron Karenga, AKA Maulana Karenga while out on parole claiming to have been a "political prisoner," and who founded the Black-Power militant group called "US" (shades of FUBU) - a group that frequently clashed violently with police and even other black power groups, and the members of said group who even killed two Black Panthers in 1969... "Kwanzaa was invented in 1966 by Dr. Maulana “Ron” Karenga, a former black militant, Marxist and convicted felon. Claiming to have the unity of black people in mind, Karenga committed most of his crimes against blacks.

    Just five years after his invention, he was convicted of torturing two black women by stripping them naked, beating them with electrical cords, placing a hot iron into the mouth of one and mangling the toe of the other in a vice. During the ordeal, he forced them to drink detergent."
    One of them was named by him, "African Queen" - did he see the movie?
    But what a guy!!

    1. Ok, so what you're saying is that Maulana Karenga is no different than any important person in Africa. I get it. I guess that tends to validate the holiday at it's 'roots'.

    2. It depends on if you have to color-in your roots? I prefer blond high-lights as a fashion, but I went bald instead of going white.

    3. That's ok, you can wear an afro wig to show solidarity on Kwanzaa -- and every day for that matter.

    1. Making it "legal" to loot without consequences appeals to a certain class of human.

  4. Kwanzaa was a marketing genus's (Ron Karenga) idea for leftover merchandise after Christmas.

    1. I think that voodoo supplies are technically endless. If you run out, you just splay some chicken blood on the wall and the devil miracles up some more amulets for you.

  5. Ahhh yisssss, Kwanzaaaaah. The traditional lighting of the Kwanzaah logs along with your front porch and the 7-11 down the block. The joyous Kwanzaah caroling and gun fire. Busting open the Kwanzaah pinata and your neighbor's head after drinking copious amounts of eggnog and malt liquor. The Kwanzaah community plea for bail money....

    1. They are all serious traditions that originated in Africa. It's a time of celebration (looting), feasting (chicken and malt liquor) and burning.
