What *is* a real thing, though?

And in any case, I've never met a single person who celebrates it. Is it still a thing or was it one of those 1960s fads that just never panned out?

Every black person I know recognizes it, if not 'celebrates' it. But there are gatherings and cards exchanged, etc. It's not as big as Christmas, of course, but it's a popular holiday.

Please don't try to dump bullshit on a converstation you don't even bother to follow.

I WAS ADDRESSING THE POST THAT SAID.. "KAWANZA WAS AN AFRICAN HOLIDAY"

I just informed him it was an UNITED STATES HOLIDAY founded in 1966.

Please keep up..

Now that was funny.. (good retort) I give you an 8.5

I base grading on Cyrano de Bergerac retort in the "Ballad of the Duel " being the perfect 10.

One of the reasons I like you so well.
Thanks from imaginethat
