(AURN) -- Republican Senator Glenn Grothman's comments regarding the relevancy of Kwanzza has many up in arms, however many African-Americans agree the tradition is losing steam. The Wisconsin lawmaker is quoted as saying, "It's time it's slapped down once and for all" describing the meaning of observing the week long holiday as "white left-wingers who try to shove this down black people's throats in an effort to divide Americans".

Keith Mayes is a professor at the University of Minnesota and spoke with the American Urban Radio Networks exclusively about the importance of upholding Kwanzaa and other family traditions.
