(Memphis) Today marks the first day of Kwanzaa.

The annual week long celebration of African American culture and traditions began in 1966.

Each day of Kwanzaa is dedicated to a specific principle.

Today it’s dedicated to unity.

The other six principles are self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity and faith.

    Kwanzaa, that is where we give thanks for crack cocaine, malt liquor, aids, herpies, gun violence, theft, stop snitch’in and all the other hallmarks of Memphis culture!

    Someone at work mentioned their celebration, after everyone laughed them out of the room they didn’t mention it again.

    I guess one week one-ups one DAY for Christmas for this recently made-up, racial fakery perpetuated by scared media, bending over to avoid criticism from a few divisive racial celebrities.
