IU's CommUNITY Education Program, designed to promote discussions about race, gender and sexual identity.

So Santa is a black transvestite lesbian?

/I call BS. My parents would never have lied to me about Santa.

The problem is the white people just knows that there's not a chance the presents will be delivered by 2 pm.

There are a lot of families from every ethnicity in our neighborhood. One house has a black Santa figure in their front yard. It hasn't scarred or scared my kids, they think it's great. We call him Homey Claus.

Bloomington is an extremely liberal place, so it's not surprising to me that they wouldn't risk hurting someone's feelings.

No, that's not race baiting at all.
 
2013-12-04 12:21:15 PM
well, since Jesus was/is black, it only makes sense that santa is black too.

I wonder if Fox really had that pic in the article or is someone just lying and gullible people are to lazy to look.
 
2013-12-04 12:27:46 PM
Well, Santa does go around saying, "Ho, ho, ho."
 
2013-12-04 12:27:48 PM
Didn't see a problem with the display until the stockings. Ack.

And of course Santa Claus isn't black, but yours can be black, along with black Jesus, black Barbie, black whatever...who cares?
 
2013-12-04 12:29:57 PM
Glad they didn't block comments for the article.

Must have been a mistake.
 
2013-12-04 12:34:27 PM
Women are ok with black guys coming in their back door though.
 
2013-12-04 12:37:10 PM
I think we need a WTF button for that picture above. Who thought those questions would be appropriate?

I bet we could come up with some better ones. I'll start:

If Santa is a white Indiana man does he:
A. Sleep with his nearest female relatives and/or farm animals?
B. Would he shoot his reindeer in a drunken accident after mistaking them for normal deer? How about sober?

This is to get people talking about stereotypes too and not just insult whoever reads it.

wouldn't white santa be black after coming down the chimney ?
 
2013-12-04 12:54:54 PM
So putting up a white version of MLK would be OK too?  In the name of diversity?
 
2013-12-04 12:57:30 PM
Santa can't be black, but one could argue he'd have more of an olive completion since Santa is based off of Saint Nicholas who was from the Greek town of Patara which is on the Mediterranean coast of modern day Turkey.

WTP 2: wouldn't white santa be black after coming down the chimney ?


thanks to the power of magic and teh jeebus, santa keeps all the disgusting blackness away from him so he stays clean and pure.

/ no i am not racist, why do you ask?

brilliant satire...complain about fox, yet reproduce the image yourself.

btw, when did racist speech lose 1st amendment protection? why ban this, when 99% of IU's deans and other higher-ups are white?

The modern American Santa Claus is an amalgamation of several figures from European folklore, only one of which was Greek.

So I guess he has four grandfathers, including a swarthy-complected one. NTTAWWT.

I guess I worded that ambiguously.  Fox didn't run a picture.   I had to find it myself.

Fascinated by the number of people (seemingly) sincerely saying that Santa can't be black. Santa can too be black. You know why? CAUSE HE'S NOT REAL!

Because after the first dozen chimneys or so nobody will be able to tell the difference anyway?

I don't think so. Krampuslaufen are often drunken, violent affairs as is. Adding in people who trample each other in Walmart sounds like a Bad Idea.

Indiana is known for being full of simple people who will be nice to you and that is mostly true. This state is full of morons but so is every other state and at least most of them here wait until you leave to talk badly about you.

(lots of homophobia/racism here but Indy/Bloomington/the region are mostly exceptions to this.)
 
2013-12-04 02:09:52 PM
Why do the blacks insist on stealing white history?
 
2013-12-04 02:15:48 PM
One, Santa is based on a combination of a Greek saint and probably Germanic mythology. So he's not black but possibly moderately swarthy. Two, he's not real so who the hell cares?

I disagree.  I think it would actually thin the herds that most need thinning.

Makes me think of when we got these wriggling, singing santa dolls back when I worked in a convenience store (the ghetto one). We had three kinds - regular santa, redneck santa (complete with overalls and straw hat, that sang a country version of a carol), and ghetto santa (who had big gold chains and a 'ho ho ho' that sounded remarkably like a car alarm).

coming down her chimney tonight
