Santa Claus Should Not Be a White Man Anymore


It’s time to give St. Nick his long overdue makeover.
By Aisha Harri



When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials.

Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine.

Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what Santa really looked like. Was he brown, like us? Or was he really a white guy?

I wish people would study history once in  while.  Santa is of Norwegian descent... Norweigens are WHiTE.

I think its a great idea.  I think the kids would fall in love with the idea of a terrorist on a desert sled pulled by 6 camels with presents consisting of hand grenades, sabers, AK47s,  plastic explosives, and instruction manuals for homemade explosive devices but only for those "good" children who have beheaded someone. :silly:
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

"Ho, Ho, Ho".
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.
