To be fair, some Black Santas need to be removed:

Yeah, don't you know this made-up piece of nonsense is white!
 
2020-11-26 2:33:54 PM  
Oh, and Jesus was a middle Eastern Jew, which makes him pretty darn not white.

600 years? Curious number. Why did Santa suddenly become white in 1420?
 
2020-11-26 4:04:12 PM  
That letter though... 🤡

2020-11-26 4:11:56 PM  
But seriously.

I'll bet the REAL issue with Sir Dipshiat Letterwriter isn't because the Santa was black.....

That's so you know he doesn't just espouse this one dumb idea, but instead he's a font of nonsense.

edmo: 600 years? Curious number. Why did Santa suddenly become white in 1420?


Duh, because Saint Nik is Greek from a fishing village, so he was almost certainly not what we'd consider white, and didn't get whitewashed for 1200 years.

To be fair he watched while they were sleeping and knew if they were awake.

The black Santa pictured in the article is no darker than depictions of Saint Nicholas, at least those depictions painted close to the time he lived.

The first thing you learn when dealing with racist yahoos is their idea that only minorities are racist.

/Trumpers calling POC racists in real life is as normal of a daily occurrence as liberals calling POC racists online.

Imagine giving a sh*t about this kind of thing.  I can't even.
 
2020-11-26 4:57:18 PM  
Arkansas has strong castle doctrine right?

I mean it is as red as Rudolph's nose, so I'd assume so.

Dude needs to exercise his rights if someone tries to damage his property.

Of course we know he wouldn't be treated the same as if a white person trying to defend his property, but id throw a ton of cash his way to turn the tables.

I've always pictured him as an arab, about 5'4"-5'6", well built (carpenter with no powertools), middle class (again, carpenter, in that region), with a beard you could hide a goat in, as befits a rabi.

It's fascinating he got away with raping so many white women meanwhile several people got lynched just for looking at a white woman that says a lot somehow

Kind of fitting in a perverse sort of way
 
2020-11-26 5:00:28 PM  
Things are improving everywhere.  The letter wasn't delivered with a brick, so progress!

People suck, but it was nice to see the drive-by support during the interview.
 
2020-11-26 5:00:43 PM  
Maybe it's time for everyone in that neighborhood to learn about machine identification codes.

Every accusation is a confession, and every claim is a lie.

Why did the article substitute "[racial slur]" for "negro"?  Martin Luther King Jr. said that word plenty of times and I have never heard it censored by the news.
 
2020-11-26 5:04:30 PM  
only appropriate response is to get a ginrmous black santa and put it on your roof

That is quite true. It is sad that is what counts as progress, but I'll take it.

I don't see how you can upset about what color you decide Santa should be. Considering fact that (spoiler alert) Santa is not real.

Well technically speaking either is race that's a construct too

This isn't really a subject discussed by laymen because it's a bit of a head scratcher and those ill-equipped to consider all context (ie: militant atheists) go running off into the sunset with conclusions based on modern mores and morals.

It is reasonably likely that Jesus was half-Gentile, as we talk about Mary's virgin birth and possible ancestors for Jesus. Dogma holds that Jesus was half-Holy in descent from the get go, but more reasonable conclusions abound. To modern mores, questions of consent arise and questions of precisely with what 'vessel' the Holy Spirit may have impregnated Mary. One typically doesn't have to go far into history to discover theoretical embodiments, perhaps as mighty as an Archangel, although that is very likely a Catholic revision.

In any case, it was quite likely that Jesus was a racial mix. And equally likely not.

The neighborhood association says they weren't behind the letter.

I'm willing to bet more than a few bucks that the writer is a member of said association

Yeah, no.

They have actual photos on the internet of him now, so you're wrong about that.
I think he has a private jet now too...

I live in Florida. If you have a better term for trashy white rednecks I'd like to hear it
