    AP: Kwanzaa's Popularity is Receding

    Kwanzaa, which runs from Dec. 26 to Jan. 1, may be a mainstream holiday with greeting cards, postage stamps and public celebrations, but experts say its popularity is receding.
    ----
    Some blacks, though, rejected the concept of Kwanzaa all along, considering it a pagan holiday and taking issue with its founder, a black nationalist and ex-con — he was convicted of torturing two women
    ----
    The Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, founder of BOND (Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny) and author of "SCAM: How the Black Leadership Exploits Black America" believes the holiday is racist. He advocates for blacks to see themselves as Americans — not African-Americans, thus no separate holiday.
    "Get rid of it," said Peterson, who is black. "Reject it completely. Just as we would do if a white racist came up with a false holiday to celebrate whiteness."

    Another victory for the American/global melting pot.

    I remember when they started this "holiday" and I thought it was a good way to separate the cultures. Just like martin luther king day it has done wonders to separate, the negroes don't go to school or work but the whites do.

    They should live in their own culture and we in ours.
