Founder of Fraud Holiday Kwanzaa Convicted in 1971 of Torturing Two Women

Those who are around my age woke up one December and discovered that the “holiday season” of Christmas and New Year’s became a trio, with the addition of something called Kwanzaa.  Oh sure there were rumblings of a new holiday. But strangely in this country where political correctness is on overload, a day invented in 1966 by a rapist who ran a Black separatist group is considered by some as a holiday on par with Christmas, or New Year’s. Kwanzaa is an exclusively African American holiday and is not celebrated in any other part of the world (including Africa).
