 Republican Glenn Grothman Slams Kwanzaa: Almost No Black People Today Care.. Just White Left WingersWisconsin state Sen. Glenn Grothman (R-West Bend) slammed Kwanzaa, claiming “almost no black people” care about the holiday.

“Almost no black people today care about Kwanzaa — just white left-wingers who try to shove this down black people’s throats in an effort to divide Americans,” Grothman said in a press release, according to Patch.

“Why must we still hear about Kwanzaa?” Grothman asked. “Why are hard-core left wingers still trying to talk about Kwanzaa — the supposed African-American holiday celebration between Christmas and New Year’s?”

Grothman slammed “irresponsible public school districts” in Wisconsin for trying “to tell a new generation that blacks have a separate holiday than Christians.” His comments were heavily criticized, with one Democratic party leader calling the remarks “absolutely jaw-dropping.”
