LOS ANGELES, Dec. 5 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, author of the book, "SCAM: How the Black Leadership Exploits Black America," which was just released in paperback, is trying to educate Americans that Kwanzaa (celebrated Dec. 26- Jan. 1) is not a legitimate holiday, it is a platform for racial hatred which was started in America by a Marxist ex-con who served four years in prison for torturing two women.
"Kwanzaa is not a legitimate holiday; it is a subversive black nationalist movement designed to create racial separatism and hatred. It is one of the biggest scams being perpetrated on black Americans," says Rev. Peterson.
In 1966, Ron Karenga, the leader of United Slaves Organization, a Marxist "black power" group, created Kwanzaa to help blacks get in touch with their African roots.
Rev. Peterson says, "Marxist Karenga's Kwanzaa celebration is really a banquet of socialism, worship of false gods and Afrocentrism. The Kwanzaa pledge of allegiance is a perfect example of racial hatred and black separatism:
"We pledge allegiance to the red, black and green, our flag, the symbol of our eternal struggle, and to the land we must obtain; one nation of black people, with one God of us all, totally united in the struggle, for black love, black freedom and black self-determination."
Rev. Peterson adds, "This is not a celebration of African harvest; it is a political statement for the establishment of a black nation and racial hatred against whites."
According to the BOND website, Karenga explained the holiday as follows: "People think it's African but it is not. I came up with Kwanzaa because black people wouldn't celebrate it if they knew it was American. Also, I put it around Christmas because I knew that's when a lot of Bloods would be partying."
Kwanzaa has been widely promoted in our culture; President George W. Bush even issued a proclamation celebrating Kwanzaa in 2002.
Rev. Peterson points out, "Most whites are fearful of telling the truth about Kwanzaa because they're labeled racist, anti- black and intolerant. Hate-filled men like Ron Karenga have used this bogus holiday to bash Christmas and preach anti-white views. The 'Merry Christmas!' Not 'Happy Kwanzaa!' Campaign is designed to expose the falsehoods of Kwanzaa and defend the celebration of Christmas."

SCAM: HOW THE BLACK LEADERSHIP EXPLOITS BLACK AMERICA lays bare the black community's corrupt leadership, calling black Americans to shake off the stranglehold of these "leaders" and take control of a future full of hope and promise. Rev. Peterson courageously takes aim at the biggest names -- Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, Al Sharpton, Maxine Waters -- claiming they are nothing more than scam artists profiting off the hatred and disorder they foster in the black community. SCAM is now available in paperback with a brand new foreword by Sean Hannity and a new afterword by the author. SCAM is available at all major bookstores, and online at http://www.bondinfo.org
