Happy Belated Kwanzaa, Senator Grothman

“Almost no black people today care about Kwanzaa,” stated WI State Senator Glenn Grothman.

It’s clear he understands nothing about Umoja, one of the seven principles of Kwanzaa that means unity. His press release denouncing Kwanzaa in the new year was not supported by any valid or reliable research. His assertions were conjured up by his lack of cultural sensitivity toward people who share different beliefs than him.

Since State Senator Grothman doesn’t know what the tradition is all about, we’ve decided to brighten his day with a belated Kwanzaa card. Let’s uphold the seven principles of Kwanzaa – unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity, and faith – by sending him a special card today. Maybe our greeting card will inspire him to have a change of heart!

Sign the card today: bit.ly/HappyKwanzaa
