Is Kwanzaa losing it's recognition? Does it need more promotion of the cultural celebration. No! It's not a religious, political holiday, although it does carry some essences of spirituality and economics. It's not anti-Christmas, nor was it to be an alternative. And worse of all, "it is not a Black Christmas."

Will or should Obama meet with Raul Castro. Oh! By the way, on March 9th, it will be my 50th anniversary, when I arrive in Idelwild (JFK) Airport & began living in America.
Thank you!
