I don't understand why we have Kwanzaa that is based on a culture that is not ours. What I mean is that the priciples use Swahili words. None of our ancestors spoke that language. That is an SE African language that is a combination of local laguages with Arabic. Our people come from W Africa. This does not make sense. They could have chosen Yorban, Ewe, Fanti, Mandinka, Fulani etc.
