     > Except for the small historical detail that Kwanzaa was invented in
     > 1966 amidst the madness of the multicultural '60s by a black radical
     > stooge of the FBI, Ron Karenga, a.k.a. Dr. Maulana Karenga. Karenga
     > was a founder of United Slaves, a violent nationalist rival to the
     > Black Panthers and a dupe of the FBI.

     > between the Panthers and United Slaves, leading in one outburst to the
     > shooting of Panther Al "Bunchy" Carter on the UCLA campus by Karenga's

     > Asked to distinguish Kawaida, the philosophy underlying Kwanzaa, from
     > "classical Marxism" in the 1995 interview, Karenga basically said that
     > under Kawaida, we also hate whites. While taking the "best of" -- I'm
