ABCD (Ask a Black Canadian Dude): Do all Black people celebrate Kwanzaa?

The short answer? No.

The long answer? No.

Considering that most Blacks in Canada are from the West Indies and the vast majority of West Indians are Christians (Protestants) because of a funny thing called slavery followed by colonialism, we celebrate Christmas.

In fact, as a whole,  Black people in Canada are probably more religious - Christian - than the dominant White majority.

Oh ya, and Kwanzaa is an African American tradition. Not Black or African.
