Republican WI state senator Glenn Grothman is under fire after attacking the Kwanzaa holiday, asserting that “no black people care” about it.
He went on to allege that Kwanzaa is merely a tool used by the far-left to divide Americans, and that it should not be taught or discussed in schools.
Kwanzaa is a week-long Afrocentric holiday which is observed from December 26th through today, January 1st. It was created in 1966 by black radical Maulana Karenga. It is observed by an estimated 2 million Americans.
“Of course, almost no black people today care about Kwanzaa — just white left-wingers who try to shove this down black people’s throats in an effort to divide Americans,” Grothman said. “Irresponsible public school districts such as Green Bay and Madison … try to tell a new generation that blacks have a separate holiday than Christians.”
Grothman went on to personally criticize the rhetoric of Karenga and called for the holiday to be “slapped down.”
Should Sen. Grothman apologize for his comments?
