    KWANZAA


    December 26 to January 1


    Dr. Maulana Karenga, Founder of Kwanzaa - From the beginning, the essential task of our organization has been and remains to provide a philosophy, a set of principles and a program which inspires a personal and social practice that not only satisfies human need but transforms people in the process, making them self-conscious agents of their own life and liberation. Such a transformative practice will, of necessity, also lead to the building of moral community and to the constant becoming of the best of what it means to be both African and human in the fullest sense.

    KWANZAA! HOLIDAY OR FOLLY-DAY? DR. KARENGA WAS AN ATHEIST!

    in Religion

    THESE ARE THE PURPORTED SEVEN PRINCIPLES OF KWANZAA!    The Nguzo Saba of the 7 days of KWANZAA: Day 1. Umoja means UNITY. Day    2. Kujichagulia means SELF-DETERMINATION.   Day 3. Ujima means WORKING TOGETHER.    Day 4. Ujamaa means SUPPORTING EACH OTHER.    Day 5. Nia means PURPOSE.    Day 6. Kuumba means CREATIVITY.     Day 7. Imani means FAITH, especially FAITH in OURSELVES.   


    KWANZAA.    DR. KARENGA was an ATHEIST!   THE PRINCIPLES OF "FAITH" KWANZAA PURPORTS TO UPHOLD ARE WITHOUT A DEFINITE ABSOLUTE SENSE OF A REFERENCE POINT FOR REVERENCE. WHAT MEN CREATE TO CELEBRATE.  ARE THEY WHO CELEBRATE THIS CUSTOM ACTUALLY AS THEY SAY, "CONSCIOUS FOLK"?   OR ARE THEY MERELY BLINDING THEMSELVES WITH PRETENSE?



    Everyone who observes KWANZAA today is NOT an ATHEIST!   It is because MEN have believed the MOST HIGH sanctions whatever MEN would associate with HIS NAME regardless of its SOURCE, that there is so little genuine RESPECT for the MOST HIGH as HE TRULY IS!   Without a STANDARD, HOW shall we genuinely as a PEOPLE be truly SAVED?   How shall we become TRULY STRONG in RETURNING unto YAH HIMSELF as HE IS?  .. and as WE were CREATED to BE?   YAH has declared a PLAN by which HIS PEOPLE shall be RENEWED TRUE to ANCIENT STRENGTH!

    The ORACLE Speaks With ... YOU!

    in Spirituality

    Celebrate KWANZZA


     


    Kwanzaa celebrates what its founder called the seven principles of Kwanzaa, or Nguzo Saba (originally Nguzu Saba—the seven principles of African Heritage), which Karenga said "is a communitarian African philosophy," consisting of what Karenga called "the best of African thought and practice in constant exchange with the world." These seven principles comprise *Kawaida, a Swahili term for tradition and reason. Each of the seven days of Kwanzaa is dedicated to one of the following principles, as follows:


     



    Umoja (Unity): To strive for and to maintain unity in the family, community, nation, and race.

    Kujichagulia (Self-Determination): To define ourselves, name ourselves, create for ourselves, and speak for ourselves.

    Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility): To build and maintain our community together and make our brothers' and sisters' problems our problems, and to solve them together.

    Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics): To build and maintain our own stores, shops, and other businesses and to profit from them together.

    Nia (Purpose): To make our collective vocation the building and developing of our community in order to restore our people to their traditional greatness.

    Kuumba (Creativity): To do always as much as we can, in the way we can, in order to leave our community more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it.

    Imani (Faith): To believe with all our hearts in our people, our parents, our teachers, our leaders, and the righteousness and victory of our struggle


     


    The ORACLE Speaks ..... "all-ways remember to love yourself"

    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

    The Quotable Karenga copyright in 1967, pp. 1, BLACK CULTURAL NATIONALISM


     


    There is no such thing as individualism, we are all black.  The only thing that saved us from being lynched like Emmet Till or shot down like Medger Evers was not our economics or social status, but our absence.Values are not abstract. Values are superior to reason. 


    The White boy engaged in the worship of technology; we must not sell our souls for money and machines. The Nationalist has a love of the people and value of his nation.  A man without Values is a man that is unpredictable. 


    Cultural background transcends education. Having a scope is different from having a content. We must address ourselves to needs not desires. When we fill our concrete need(s) then we will talk about desires. Membership in the Black Community requires more than just physical presence. In terms of History, all we need at this point is heroic images; the White boy got enough dates for everybody.


    We don't believe what we have is better than others. We believe it is better for Blacks than others.  Perhaps the teaching of US are harsh but it is better to work with hard facts than to play with pleasant but unproductive dreams. "Negroes", still suffer from America's first concept of us---- 3/5 of a man.
