This year those of us who cherish the phrase “Merry Christmas” have started to say “Merry Christ-mas” to reinsert the name Christ into the greeting. Here’s a reminder of how we started to lose “Merry Christmas” 40 years ago.

On the day before Christmas in 1971 the New York Times ran an article about a new “holiday” called Kwanzaa that was invented by an America hating Black separatist named Ron Everett. Everett now uses the made up “African” name Maulana Ron Karenga to show the world he wants nothing to do with White America.

That Mr. Karenga was in a California prison doing a one to ten year stretch for illegally imprisoning and maiming two Black women he thought were plotting to kill him meant nothing to the Times. They didn’t want to talk about how their new hero had been certified as a paranoid schizophrenic by a court, so they didn’t.

Karenga called his new “holiday” Kwanzaa, a Swahili phrase meaning “first fruits” because he says it is a harvest festival. This is a lie. Kwanzaa is Karenga’s answer to Christmas. He would like nothing better than to see Kwanzaa actually become the “Black Christmas” he has always fantasized about.

In his 1977 book on Kwanzaa, Karenga said it “…was chosen to give a Black alternative to the existing holiday and give Blacks an opportunity to celebrate themselves and history, rather than simply imitate the practice of the dominant [White] society.”
