I have consistently said that AJC is the worst city newspaper in America, and I am glad to see they are maintaining their status. Google is too pic.twitter.com/fsBkKQpkrS

Kwanzaa was simply invented in the ’60s in order to give radical black power nationalists their own black version of Christmas. The holiday, however, has nothing to do with Christ, and emerged centuries after Christmas was first celebrated.
Maulana Karenga, a black nationalist leader originally named Ron Everett, created the holiday in order to instill his radical pseudo-Marxist principles as religious dogmas.
Karenga also famously spent several years in prison on felony counts of assault and false imprisonment.
Ashleigh Atwel, the Atlanta journalist who penned the Atlanta Journal-Constitution op-ed, “What is Kwanzaa? 7 enlightening facts about the holiday”, attempted to argue that the holiday preceded Christmas, despite Christmas being first celebrated centuries before.
She argued that Kwanzaa is an imitation of “first-fruit celebrations”, which are derived from ancient African practices.
“Other first-fruit celebrations were celebrated at the end of the old year and the beginning of the New Year such as Pert-em-Min of ancient Egypt,” Karenga said in an interview back in 2000. “So, Kwanzaa’s model is older than Christmas and Hanukkah and thus does not borrow from them or seek to imitate them.”
The Federalist noted in an article called “Kwanzaa is a Fake Holiday Invented by a Criminal Marxist” that the Left has continually forced on to schoolchildren and American culture more generally.
