Kwanzaa Exposed: What the ‘Principles’ Really Represent



On the observance of the 40th anniversary of Kwanzaa (celebrated Dec. 26 to Jan. 1) Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, founder and president of BOND, the Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny, is calling on fellow blacks to abandon this “godless holiday.” Kwanzaa was founded by Maulana Karenga in 1966 to “help blacks get in touch with their African roots.” Karenga is a violent ex-con who served time in prison for torturing two women. He was also the head of the United Slaves Organization, a violent black power group. The following are some of the so-called “principles” of Kwanzaa and the truth about what they represent:
Umoja (unity) To maintain black unity.
Kujichagulia (self-determination) Black separatism— and in this case, separatism apart from whites.
Ujima (collective work and responsibility) Group thinking.
Ujamaa (cooperative economics) Code for socialism.
Imani (faith) The worship of false gods or no god at all (includes ancestor worship).
Rev. Peterson said, “Kwanzaa was designed to separate blacks from Christmas and Christianity. Kwanzaa is anti-white and anti-American. Black Americans need to make a choice between the Prince of Peace and the Marxist Karenga.
Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson is the author of the hard hitting book “SCAM: How the Black Leadership Exploits Black America� (Nelson Current). BOND (Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny) is a national nonprofit organization founded for the purpose of rebuilding the family by rebuilding the man. For more information, visit
