Kamala Harris Posts Kwanzaa Celebration, Immediately Called Out For ‘Being Fake’

While millions of Americans celebrated Christmas on Friday, many others are continuing their holiday celebrations by celebrating Kwanzaa this coming week.

The holiday, which runs from Saturday, December 26, to Friday, January 1, 2021, celebrates African-American culture and culminates with a feast called Karamu.

Democrat Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris wished her own supporters a happy Kwanzaa in a post where she described the holiday as special to her and her sister.

In the post, she said the duo “grew up celebrating Kwanzaa.”

As BizPac Review reports, Harris went on to say: “Every year, our family and our extended family, we would gather around across multiple generations, and we’d tell stories.”

The kids would sit on the carpet, and the elders would sit in chairs,” she continued. “And we would light the candles, and of course afterward have a beautiful meal. And of course, there was always a discussion of the seven principles.”

“My favorite, I have to tell you, was always the one about self-determination: Kujichagulia. And you know, essentially it’s about ‘be.’ ‘Be and do.’ Be the person you want to be and do the things you want to do, and do the things that need to be done,” Harris said per the report.

She added: “It’s about not letting anyone write our future for us, but instead going out and writing it for ourselves. And that principle motivates me today as we seek to confront the challenges facing our country and to build a brighter future for all Americans. So, to everyone who is celebrating, Happy Kwanzaa, from our family to yours.”

Several people commented on the post, claiming their own disbelief that Harris celebrated a holiday that had not even been established when she was born (Harris was born in 1964, Kwanzaa was established in 1966).
