The Obama Kwanzaa Series Day 3 of 7

How does Barack Obama’s life compare to the 7 principles of Kwanzaa. Does the comparison provide any evidence regarding Obama’s Cultural Health?

Call Habari Gani

This is day three of Kwanzaa and the third installment of this series.
3. UJIMA (Collective Work and Responsibility) [oo-JEE-mah]

To Build and maintain our community together and make our sister's and brother's problems our problems and to solve them together.

Like many African Americans who have attended good schools Obama could have deserted his community and made a fortune with the Bush type anti-humanist forty thieves. He, like the Cultural Traitors Steel and Thomas, could have chosen to work against his community.

What did Obama do? He went into the Chicago African American community and became a community organizer. He did not go into the Irish community or the Chinese community he returned to his community in the spirit of UJIMAA. He married a like minded young lady from his community and they are bringing up two children in the best tradition of UJIMA.

Barack Obama and the History of Project Vote

He found that he could not get enough done fast enough for his community given the conditions in America. So he found a way to plot a path to helping the whole American community activate UJIMA.

Bush and the forty thieves have burned the country down and we can all use some UJIMA about now.

I conclude that Obama has lived this principle.
