ElwoodCuse: Bats aren't bugs!Hey, who's giving this report, you chowderheads, or me?
Silly_Sot: Way to feed that whole "Angry, stupid Black woman" stereotype, there. She's even got a stereotype-appropriate name, too. At least she isn't named that popular black woman's name that won't make it past the word filters but consists of "Shi + Tonya".
Ker_Thwap: The real thing? If any three year olds are reading this, please stop reading. Santa is make believe.That said, if you're going to jump on a culture's fun holiday myth train, you're kind of stuck with the original concept. Which is some Germanic/Dutch/Scandinavian thing. It is only a story of course, so sure, tell your kids he changes color at each chimney, the important thing is the spirit of giving, not the skin tone.For that matter Jesus should probably be depicted as looking like Yasser Arafat, but again, presumably the message should matter more than the image. I guess it's human nature to want our heroes to look like us. I'm a big fan of MLK, I'm going order my neutral skin tone MLK painting now.
eyeq360: So what kind of cookies did she leave for Santa?

Think 4D: I like to think of Jesus like with giant eagles wings, and singin' lead vocals for Lynyrd Skynyrd with like an angel band and I'm in the front row and I'm hammered drunk!I also like to picture Jesus in a tuxedo T-Shirt because it says I want to be formal, but I'm here to party.
Godscrack: [imageshack.us image 744x308]What a strange coincidence that God and Santa are basically the same person. I'm betting when they were young, they were also blond and very rich too./Don't tread on them
washington-babylon: Dearest Aisha,Santa Claus was a Greek. And he would like you to stop being a racist anti-white hatemonger this year.Sincerely,W.B.
YixilTesiphon: Saint Nicholas the semi-historical figure was a Greek Anatolian, so not exactly Northern European either.Still, this article is dumb.
WI241TH: washington-babylon: Dearest Aisha,Santa Claus was a Greek. And he would like you to stop being a racist anti-white hatemonger this year.Sincerely,W.B.Technically accurate, but ignores the major Dutch influences on it, which is how it came to America

06Wahoo: So, instead of being politically incorrect, we'll just be geographically incorrect instead? Yeah, good idea when so many people can't even find the U.S. on a map, let alone identify which pole penguins and Santa Claus are associated with.
StoPPeRmobile: YixilTesiphon: Saint Nicholas the semi-historical figure was a Greek Anatolian, so not exactly Northern European either.Still, this article is dumb.Maybe a Greek colonist. Where do you think the Greeks came from?
