I'm torn on this. On the one hand, Santa lives at the North Pole, so he's got to be a pale-skinned white dude. On the other, he's a magical being of gifts and celebration. He should be every color, like Galactus.

You know who would make a awesome black Santa? Morgan Freeman, that grandfatherly voice saying Titty Sprinkles.

Everyone that thinks Gawd must sound like Morgan Freeman has the wrong old black guy, He has to sound like James Earl Jones. If you doubt me look up JEJ reading the bible on youtube especially something especially fire and brimstoney like the old testament or revelations.

This is just further engraining an entitlement attitude in the black community. As if the kids aren't already exposed to enough of this "give me for free" stuff already.  They should get an Asian Santa who tells them to finish their homework and then get to work on their violin lesson.

This whole thing has me laughing at people who thought Megyn Kelly had changed to a better person just because on Election Night she slapped down Karl Rove. Now it comes out that she did what she did because HE was just so blatantly wrong and stupid.

Now we see that not only is she still the typical Fox News mouthpiece, but her own stupidity knows no bounds. I bet Megyn is the new poster girl for Stormfront.

Wait wait you're all missing the key part.

Nobody tracks the number of African American Santas nationwide. But Timothy Connaghan, head of the International University of Santa Claus, a Los Angeles-based Santa school, said: "It's a very lopsided number."
He keeps a Rolodex of the more than 2,200 Santa Clauses he has trained throughout the country. In the decade since he opened his school, he has had three black pupils.

Are you talking about Santa or Jesus?  Your description fits both equally well.

Yep, because a black Santa is so unfair to the "system".  Or something. I'm too busy trying to figure out how you can type while you're up on your cross like that.

Huh? Doesn't virtually all of Santa Claus eventually go back to Saint Nikolaos of Myra, making it about the only popular part of the holidays that actually is Christian in origin? Or is this some American thing where orthodox Christianity counts as pagan (as Catholicism still is considered by some from the sounds of it)?

What do they teach at Santa U, I wonder?  And what if you flunk out?  Do you get to play Krampus?

My daughter is going to be 3 early next year.  I really look forward to telling her about Krampus.

I forget, did she drop that line before or after the producers made her walk halfway across the building to talk to their decision desk simply because they were using her ass and legs to drive ratings?  Because I could see her being really pissed off with people that night, and that line might have been her frustration finally boiling over.

Riche: /And if there actually was a radical progressive doomsday preaching rabbi named Yoshua in the early first century, you can bet your last dollar he wasn't exactly white.


The problem with "historical Jesus" isn't so much that there weren't any cult-founding radical doomsday-preaching rabbis claiming to be the son of god in Judea in the general time period, it's more that that describes about 5% of the region's population at the time.  Cults spinning off all over the damned place and every one of them had a Christ or twelve on hand at any given time.

The most successful one that was actually just one guy (not the 3141592 separate legends duct-taped together in Nicea) was actually John the Baptist, who technically still has his own cult and shows up in the Bible both as himself and as a bunch of his legends ctrl_c'd in with 'Jesus' crudely written over his white-out'd name.

PhiloeBedoe: "... I beat the shiat out of some kids today. But it was for a purpose. It made me feel good about myself. It was like I did something constructive with my life or something, I dunno, like I accomplished something."


It is a little unnecessary though. Kids are so short - it's easy to just spilldump smoothies, soda, cups of molasses, etc. on their heads. You just quickly take a broad sidestep at the time of discharge, nothing gets on your pants, it takes the kid a second or two to register what has happened so you can be gone before he starts crying or screaming, I don't know - really just the route to go for my purposes.
