Kwanzaa creates a sense of love and belonging to a people who were literally ripped from their homeland, raped, murdered, whose family structure was ripped apart, had no country or motherland, and no native tongue.

Because of these human rights atrocities, this holiday, similar to the winter solstice or harvest celebrations of old, was created to give Blacks, I am not from Africa, therefore the term African-American is inappropriate, a sense of oneness and community.
