Kwanzaa: The Afrikan American Celebration to Practice Everyday

Kwanzaa (/ˈkwɑːn.zə/) is a week-long celebration held in the United States and in other nations of the African diaspora in the Americas. It was created in 1965 by Maulana Karenga and was first celebrated in 1966 –67. The celebration honors African heritage in African-American culture, and is observed from December 26 to January 1, culminating in a feast and gift- giving.

Kwanzaa is one of the first specifically African-American holidays. According to Karenga, the name Kwanzaa derives from the Swahili phrase "matunda ya kwanza", meaning "first fruits of the harvest." The choice of Swahili, an East African language, reflects its status as a symbol of Pan-Africanism, especially in the 1960s.

Another African American Celebration is Umoja Karamu (Unity Feast); Created by Dr. Edward Sims in 1971. http://amen-parankh.blogspot.com/2015/11/2015-umoja-karamu-unity-feast.html -This feast recognizes 5 key periods of Black History in the Americas. This feast is held traditionally on the 4th Sunday of November.

Kwanzaa is a celebration that has its roots in the black nationalist movement of the 1960s and was established as a means to help African Americans reconnect with their African cultural and historical heritage by uniting in meditation and study of African traditions and Nguzo Saba, the "seven principles of African Heritage" which Karenga said "is a communitarian African philosophy". For Karenga, a major figure in the Black Power movement of the 1960s and 1970s, the creation of such holidays also underscored an essential premise that "you must have a cultural revolution before any violent revolution. The cultural revolution gives identity, purpose and direction."
Kwanzaa has seven core principles called Nguzo Saba. The Nguzo Saba means: Principles Seven- to guide and direct the path of liberation.:  1. Umoja means unity. 2. Kujichagulia means self-determination. 3. Ujima means  collective working together. 4. Ujamaa means cooperative Economics 5. Nia means purpose. 6. Kuumba means a handmade basket to represent creativity. 7. Imani means faith, especially faith in ourselves.

Each day of the celebration is noted to celebrate a principal. The Swahili greeting of Habari Gani? is a question: What's the News? and the proper response is the principal of the day.

Day 1 Umoja (oo-MO-jah) Unity stresses the importance of togetherness for the family and the community, which is reflected in the African saying, "I am We," or "I am because We are."

Day 2 Kujichagulia (koo-gee-cha-goo-LEE-yah) Self-Determination requires that we define our common interests and make decisions that are in the best interest of our family and community.

Day 3 Ujima (oo-GEE-mah) Collective Work and Responsibility reminds us of our obligation to the past, present and future, and that we have a role to play in the community, society, and world.

Day 4 Ujamaa (oo-JAH-mah) Cooperative economics emphasizes our collective economic strength and encourages us to meet common needs through mutual support.

Day 5 Nia (NEE-yah) Purpose encourages us to look within ourselves and to set personal goals that are beneficial to the community.

Day 6 Kuumba (koo-OOM-bah) Creativity makes use of our creative energies to build and maintain a strong and vibrant community.

Day 7 Imani (ee-MAH-nee) Faith focuses on honoring the best of our traditions, draws upon the best in ourselves, and helps us strive for a higher level of life for humankind, by affirming our self-worth and confidence in our ability to succeed and triumph in righteous struggle.

There are 7 symbols that are represented for the harvest display:

Mkeka—woven mat: Symbolic of our tradition and history and therefore, the foundation on which we build
Kinara—candle holder: Symbolic of our roots, our parent people—continental Africans
Mishumaa Saba—the seven candles: Symbolic of the Nguzo Saba (7 principles), the matrix and minimum set of values which African people are urged to live by in order to rescue and reconstruct their lives in their own image and according to their own needs
Mazao—crops: Symbolic of African harvest celebrations and of the rewards of productive and collective labor
Muhindi—corn: Symbolic of our children and our future which they embody
Kikombe cha Umoja—unity cup: Symbolic of the foundational principle and practice of unity which makes all else possible
Zawadi—gifts: Symbolic of the labor and love of parents and the commitments made and kept by the children.

Secondary Symbols  and Swahili terms during Kwanzaa

I. NGUZO SABA (En-GOO-zoh Sah-BAH)  The display of this poster Symbolizes the seven principles of Kwanzaa which were developed by Maulana Ron Karenga. The Nguzo Saba are social principles dealing with ways for us to relate to each other and rebuild our lives in our own images.
II. BENDERA YA TAIFA The flag of Black Nationalism symbolizes the struggle of Liberation. The Red represents the blood of our ancestors; Black is for the collective color of all Black people, and Green reminds us of the land, life and new ideas we must continue to strive to obtain.
III. TAMBIKO Is the libation by which honor is given in a special way to our Creator Spirit, Aku /Ancestors, Siblings- All life in the present and Seeds All newly born and a call to carry out the struggle and the work they have begun. It clearly symbolizes the recognition of and respect for the contributions of those before us, our history and the models it offers us to emulate.
IV. HARAMBEE Symbolizes a call to unity and collective work and struggle. The word means Let's pull together!
V. HABARI GANI What's the news; what's happening Swahili term used when greeting others.

Anthony T. Browder the Historical Cultural Relevance of Avatar

The movie Avatar was indeed a foreshadowing of the current destruction of melanin peoples and the exploitation of the ecosystem of the planet! IMPERIALISTS HAVE RECENTLY KILLED THOUSANDS -IF NOT MILLIONS OF MELANIN ORIGINAL PEOPLE ON THE WEST COASTLINE OF AFRIKA WITH EBOLA! They removed the people then took the land for it's minerals, resources and oil fracking!
All through the History of Melanin original peoples and here recently, is an epitome of abuse, exploitation and inhuman destruction of cultural families and environment. In the US, our youth run from city to city protesting and marching against injustice.Our youth are distracted fighting the abstract illusions of racism and race supremacy, while our cultural and physical genocide is occurring all over the planet! ‪#‎blacklivesmatter‬

Maafa Syndrome - Black Doll White Dolls

Black Doll White Doll

I remember as a child, my dad had us regularly watching a T.V. show called “ The 21st Century with Walter Cronkite." They narrated an excerpt of one of the most shocking documentary films that I had watched as a child, called the Black Doll White Doll studies. What first grabbed my attention, was that this was the very first time that I had ever encountered scientists that looked like me or my Dad and Mom! So this documentary challenged my preconception that only caucasoids were authority figures. After being subjected to so much hostility, growing up in predominantly caucasian environments, as a children in the military, I was so impressed to see Malcolm X , The Black Panthers, Thurgood Marshall, Andrew Young, Sen. Julian Bond, Assata Shakur, Dr. Martin L. King and Coretta Scott King and Shirley Chisholm in the Civil Rights Movement.

Mamie Clark


Clark Doll Experiment




I how disturbing is was to see children prefer and choose non-Black dolls time after time, yet when they identified with themselves, they chose a black doll and they had such a disturbed look on their faces, when they were asked to identify the dolls that looked like them, afterward. I remember Black dolls and Teddy bears among many things i had to play with as a child. I do recall playing with one long haired Hispanic doll. The documentary was painful to watch. I was left with the impression that a profound imprint of self hatred in very young Black children, and hatefulness and fear of Black Children and Black skinned adults in minds of Caucasian and youth of other ethnicity, were marked on the psyche of all young children at birth.

 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenneth_and_Mamie_Clark
Doll experiment
The Clarks' doll experiments grew out of Mamie Clark's master's degree thesis. They published three major papers between 1939 and 1940 on children's self-perception related to race. Their studies found contrasts among African-American children attending segregated schools in Washington, DC versus those in integrated schools in New York.The doll experiment involved a child being presented with two dolls. Both of these dolls were completely identical except for the skin and hair color. One doll was white with yellow hair, while the other was brown with black hair. The child was then asked questions inquiring as to which one is the doll they would play with, which one is the nice doll, which one looks bad, which one has the nicer color, etc. The experiment showed a clear preference for the white doll among all children in the study. These findings exposed internalized racism in African-American children, self-hatred that was more acute among children attending segregated schools. This research also paved the way for an increase in psychological research into areas of self-esteem and self-concept.
This work suggests that by its very nature, segregation harms children and, by extension, society at large, a suggestion that was exploited in several legal battles. The Clarks testified as expert witnesses in several school desegregation cases, including Briggs v. Elliott, which was later combined into the famous Brown v. Board of Education (1954). In 1954, Clark and Isidor Chein wrote a brief whose purpose was to supply evidence in the Brown v. Board of Education case underlining the damaging effects racial segregation had on African-American children. The Supreme Court declared that separate but equal in education was unconstitutional because it resulted in African American children having “a feeling of inferiority as to their status in the community"  This ended segregation in the public school systems. Regarding Brown, this question of psychological and psychic harm fit into a very particular historical window that allowed it to have formal traction in the first place. It wasn’t until a few decades prior (with the coming of Boas and other cultural anthropologists) that cultural and/ or social science research—and the questions that they invoked—would even be consulted by the courts and therefore able to influence decisions.
In 2005 filmmaker Kiri Davis recreated the doll study and documented it in a film entitled A Girl Like Me. Despite the many changes in some parts of society, Davis found the same results as did the Drs. Clark in their study of the late 1930s and early 1940s. In the original experiment(s) the majority of the children choose the white dolls. When Davis repeated the experiment 15 out of 21 children also choose the white dolls over the black, giving similar reasons as the original subjects, associating white with being "pretty" or "good" and black with "ugly" or "bad". The dolls used in the documentary were identical except for skin color.



State Sen. Julian Bond
I began to be more careful and conscious of my treatment in life. How I was excluded in many ways from being allowed full membership in society. I remember feeling the sting of hatred in segregation, not being allowed to drink from water fountains when I was thirsty, or play on the public playgrounds when other caucasian youth were present, I remember not being able to used the bathroom- (We had to hide in the bushes)... Or not being able to eat in grills or delis when my mother took us shopping. She would always pack a cold lunch. I remember riding in the back of buses.


Tuskegee Airmen
Being a Daughter of a Father with an Air Force career, we were stationed in many places in the US as well as Europe. I still recall being painfully teased, called "nigger" and bullied for my hair and complexion while in school, and how the teachers were often complicit with the students. I wore an Afro and as I rode the bus, students would spit and throw chewing gum in my hair. I remembered crying myself to sleep many nights. Then one day I looked in the mirror and told myself that I was created in the image of God and that everything God created was Good. So I thought that there must have been a special reason that my hair, skin, and body shape was made. I learned to embrace and accept myself naturally. My mother would try to hot comb my hair. She would say, "let me get into this kitchen". But I would sweat it out very quickly riding my bike or jumping rope. I preferred to wear a natural Afro. The Black power movement and images were strong, way back in the 60s. I loved the Panthers. I use to think that people who wore their hair naturally, in braids, an Afro or coils of lox were very "cool", conscious and powerful. These youth images became my circle of influence. I respected the Black Panthers, Assata Shakur, Nina Simone and Jimi Hendrix And Senator Shirley Chisholm- in her curly Afro.  I remember Stevie Wonder's Song about Black history. But I was not exposed To Black history from my teachers in the many schools that I attended, who were non-black. Over time as an adult, I discovered that for many, Afrocentricity was just a fashion statement and some were clueless to their own history about African Empowerment.

It was brought to my attention that the Clarks used their Experiments to justify Integration into public access in the School systems and housing.

Another related issue of race supremacy is Cognitive Dissonance.
Dr. Frantz Fanon shared a famous quote:
I also came across many identity issue classifications due to racism.
One is *Maafa Syndrome - Noted from the cruel plantation system treatment of enslaved and imprisoned Melanin Peoples from the 18th Century, and presently.

(often referred to as Stockholm syndrome or capture-bonding, is a psychological phenomenon noted in World War I & II, in which hostages express empathy and sympathy for the slightest kindness from their captors. They identify and develop positive feelings toward of their captors, guards or bosses, sometimes to the point of defending the captors over fellow hostages, or incarcerated, often becoming model trustees to assist their captors.)

Maafa Syndrome is where an individual is so overcome with traumatic stress and cruelty (Post Traumatic Slavery Syndrome)  and other forms of physical and psychological tortures, they begin to attempt to conform and compromise for the sake of relief. They seek to find a way to appease their tormentors even though they are dehumanized and objectified as only the target of their tormentor's demented power and control. They begin to think that their captors are not to blame for the cruelty they are receiving. So, The victim conforms and completely identifies with their oppressors image and ideals, emulating their mannerisms and speech patterns, and seeking any form of approval or crumb of consolation. They will often defend to the death their captors goals and mission over their own freedom and value system, and encourage others to do the same, even reporting them to authorities for seasoning or to punish them if they did not conform. This is colonialism and imperialism at it's worst!

*Maafa is a Swahili word for "terrible disaster."


I AM MY HAIR and SKIN- 
MY SKIN and HAIR IS MY IDENTITY!

It's not just hair or skin... Black Nappy Hair is alive. Black Coiled hair is sacred. Our melanin rich hair and skin are magnetic. Black hair is a living material and an extension of the body. Our Black nappy hair defies gravity! My Melanin skin is a carbon memory bank network. I have learned about auras and chakras and the healing powers of color and aromas. I apply meditation and Conscious breathing and diet as a way of life, to reconnect to the natural kingdom of the planet and the cosmos. Our natural coiled hair responds like an antenna or battery...  To change its natural order by dyeing, straightening and cutting, changes or nullifies its original intent by the creator to blindside our dexterity and ability to maneuver in the Nature Eco environment. All of our senses respond on a higher dimension. So, we sense the environment differently with melanin richness. Much like an acidic diet and negative stress calcifies the pineal gland, Altered hair and skin is destructive and disruptive to our balance in maneuvering in a hostile environment.


And yes, although the above statement is very true... Natural Braids, Afros,and Lox doesn't only make a person “conscious.” Knowledge of self means not only knowing our great Afrakan* history, yet also, to be sensitive and intentional to practice and live our own culture, diet, languages, worldview, and Spirituality, is what gives us distinct living existence, Cultural unity and empowerment. Only when we misunderstand  and devalue our hair and skin, when we pollute and don’t take care to cherish and protect our body temple as a whole, that we diminish our natural power.

To cover the natural melanin rich coiled hair with an artificial weave is like covering our natural melanin skin with layers of plastic (nylon, acrylic, polyester, etc.) clothing and sunblock. we are wearing an artificial reality of other's energy.

To be conscious on the next level is to innerstand naturalness; but yes, there are many fake wannabes out there on both sides of the pendulum, who perpetrate black culture or who assimilate and deny black culture. To this day we still have those with "good hair" syndrome who covet for their children to have silky hair and light skin and to assimilate into the ways of an alien society, because we don't look for or see ourselves as powerful.

I wear my hair in tight coils and lox because that is how it grows from my scalp. I don't want my hair to be construed as just a political statement. Talk to me if you want to know what I think. Don't look at my hair, and imagine what I might be thinking. Let my Appearance be a teachable moment.
There is a natural order that we are born with if the order is disturbed it can interrupt your body's full potential.  I'm not attacking you or anyone.
But I have seen beautiful sistars losing their natural hair due to unnatural manipulation. The base on most hair bleaches and relaxers is lye and formaldehyde. Lye is a caustic substance, commonly used as drain cleaner. When you combine that with fat, you make soap. In many cases, baldness has occurred due to excessive use of chemicals on the scalp. These chemicals are being absorbed through the skin like a nicotine patch, actually destroying the living skin down to the scull and into the blood/brain barrier to the pineal gland. 

BLACK Love is loving and accepting ourselves

 BLACK Love is loving and accepting ourselves with self knowledge in the midst of haters, bigots, racial profiling, prejudice, Ignorance, Classism, Racism, and/or others who might be your family members with self hate.

 Yes focus on black love... Love your black hair in spite of the fact that the world thinks its ugly, love your black skin... I want all the sistars and brothers, Queens and Kings to love themselves.

I think the whole body, mind and soul matters,... In correct balance.Yes, We must focus on black love... Black Love Matters, Black Lives Matter, Black Money Matters! Love your black hair in spite of what the world thinks.  Love your black skin... I want all the Sistars and Brother Suns, Queens and Kings to love themselves. Respect their Ancestors, Elders and Know our Historic culture and civilizations.

We need to pay more attention to our Black children's minds... 
Our youth are forced to process a sick and dying world of race supremacy.

Our Black Girls are our foundation. As you teach a girl you heal a nation.

Our whole body matters, mind, body and soul... We must live in correct balance. 

When women are talking about something of great importance to them, listen. We are Ankh Wombs of creation. We are the first teachers.


 
With love comes dignity and self respect.

Live, Laugh and Leave a Legacy of Love! ---

The Minstrel Cycles of Race Privilage

 What are we saying to our young Melanin girls in a world of racism and the aftermath of self hate and Maafa syndrome?

We know that Race is a political/Socio Construct. This construct was designed and agreed about, by a global minority for control of people of color. THERE IS NO "RACE"!

All Humans come from the Ancestry of The African Woman's EVE GENE! So this means that all "so called" Native Americans, Asians, Arabs, Chinese, You-Name-It, HAVE AFRICAN ANCESTRY and are NATIONS-NOT RACES! These People of Color have DENIED their AFRICAN ANCESTORS and ANCESTRY to PLAY in the RACE GAME

Caucasian people are melanin recessive. They do not possess the Eve Gene. They are of the Neanderthal RNA. 

Yet, Racism/ white supremacy, and white privilege, is alive and well in the mentality of the U.S. and in every western imperialist social structure. 



 



Historically, caucasian women have used their privileges for their advantage, in usurping anything they want in their favor. They have always played their roles for convenience, in the segregation and disadvantage of Melanin peoples. They designed and washed the blood stains from the white robes of Race supremacy. They beat their maids and orphaned mulatto children. Caucasian women have often sexually harassed, threatened to cry rape or brazenly walked over to take, whatever they wanted from Melininated peoples, using our lives like an animal hide around their shoulders.

Now Dolezal goes unchallenged, masquerading in a culture she doesn't belong, while so many of our people have suffered and struggled in colonialism and cultural genocide.

Caucasians have massacred, pirated, squandered our children, land and resources for centuries. Now this creature seeks to pirate African melanin identity and appropriates our names.
Cavorting herself as an African Queen of the Jungle for amusement, in a mockery of African cultures




Names are given- Not taken or bought in our cultures.

This sick pathetic critter epitomizes the US system of Race privilege! She projected her childhood molestation and abuse into a convenient identity. The paradox is historically, when most female caucasoids would cry rape against a black man for the attention and sympathy, or travel in seclusion, looking for ways to engage in black exploitation and prostitution,... this woman finds Black Male specimens to exploit, then adopts other black male youth as victims into her menagerie of the most oppressed and voiceless people on the planet. She wears the veil of our beautiful, yet despised melanin skin and coils her hair everyday as a masquerade!
Savage parody of black Americans, Mistral Shows were an attack on the equality and freedom of African Americans. Caucasian performers would blacken their faces with burnt cork or greasepaint, dress in outlandish costumes, and then perform songs and skits that mocked African Americans. Some of the most famous songs in American history--Dixie, Camptown Races, Oh Sussanah, My Old Kentucky Home--began as minstrel songs.


So many melaninated people are expressing a permissive attitude in the controversy of this impostor, Rachel Dolezal and the brazenness of her reverse racism stunt. My concern about this race trader traitor is in how many times she had undermined and sold out Black people while seeking to hold the highest salaried positions as an educator and a political representative, advancing American African people?! How many critical decisions did she ignore or misdirect in her ignorance? How often did she dumb down strategic choices for the so-called "best interest" of our people. Like a Caucasian mother of a mulatto child, who doesn't know how to care for their daughter's hair, or does not teach her any Afrikan values, the subtle insinuations and neglect of critical milestones can be devastating and set back progressive achievement for decades.

This woman LIED, deceived and positioned herself in high rank and visibility as an impostor, moving herself to the highest paying leadership roles and representations. She wore a mask Everyday, as she looked into the mirror and rubbed tanning lotions into her skin and put a wig or weave on her head to present herself in public, and to further use young children as a human shield.

SHE CANNOT REPRESENT OUR LEGACY AND THE PAIN OF OUR ANCESTORS!

Yet this US imperialist society plays the skin game everyday with people of color all over the globe. The race supremacist have lynched melanin people from our motherland, as well as native American/free people of color. Then after reconstruction, with the destruction of Black Wall streets, Share cropping, redlining, Black Codes and Jim Crow laws that are still on the books; They further destroyed our economic foundations by removing us from our land and businesses to this day. Race supremacy also destroyed Affirmative Action, enabling further progress and opportunities for inherited wealth. And don't forget the debacle of integration with racial profiling for police brutality the school to prison pipeline, mass incarceration and private corporate prisons for the military industrial complex which is neo-chattel slavery.

So, my question is how many more spies and agents of status quo do we have in our camps- reporting back to massa? How many Black people play hypocritical roles of Black Power Activists while being married to caucasoids? Historically Afrikan women were horrendously Exploited, raped and abused. With chattel slavery rendering our black mothers as sub human, forced to breed children as a commodity for the slave trade, experimentation and perverted sexual exploits. We've had an unfortunate history of mulatto children who were encouraged to "pass as white," or who were specifically bred to be used as concubines and mistresses by caucasians, such as in New Orleans. Yet, the worst race traitors that we have, are Black Americans,

Many American African refuse to acknowledge their African Ancestry
in deference to their ignorance of historical and cultural knowledge of themselves.



These Negropeons demonstrate their self-hatred publicly, by not fostering and supporting our own products and manufacturing of goods and services, in buying out the cosmetic industry of skin and hair bleach, hair straightening, weaves, and nose cosmetic surgeries. They sing the song of color blindness and that "we are all the same under the skin." This is only the song of assimilated token negros who have accepted the programming of the conquered. So these conquered negropeons continue to live in their integrated suburbs, send their infants to be raised in that system, and their youth to be miss educated in these school to prison pipelines, eating their GMO foods, practicing their religions and submitting to their drugs and surgical procedures.

Another disturbing reality of Self Hate is how so many of our melanin people suffer from Black doll/white doll syndrome. Some call it Stockholm syndrome (I call it Maafa Syndrome a much older phenomena), where many Black people act as model assimilationist/integrationist, who dwell among us and sell out our people.

Our people have been wearing the coon black face of entertainment for centuries. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackface






"You can put lipstick on a pig but she is still a pig"...

Dolezal portrayed traitorous deceit against Melanin People. No caucasoid can ever advocate or speak for me! Let them take the beam out of their own eyes!

Some may say that she is being used as a distraction.

Of course there are many critical issues happening simultaneously. We have forgotten about the hundreds of girls who were abducted for kidnapping ransom and rape, We have forgotten about the genocide of the Melanin people Globally, for land rites to appropriate fossil fuels and toxic minerals of mass destruction and We have forgotten about the destruction of Afrikan civilization through Ebola and HIV, We have forgotten about HAARP Destruction of Haiti- for land grab and oil fracking and then to be re-occupied by the French... We are overwhelmed and saturated with the assaults of our youth by police officers- still waiting for superman or chocolate Je-w+Zeus to come and save the day... We just sit back and let our oppressor run our lives, asleep and completely oblivious that it is even happening.

Remember that some people of color still recognize Clinton as the first "black" President. So as we permit Rachel on her minstrel cycle, and other's like her, this should make it easier to except his senile Hilary in office to accelerate their HAARP- White Water Real Estate hustles on Haiti and the rest of the world!
