put lipstick on a racist pig its still a racist pigThe answer is simple. You can't put $2000 rims on a $100 sled.
The kids are really looking forward to this. I expect it will be the same man that has played Santa for many years in the city riding in the parade. It is this expectation that made me think about the fact that my children have never seen a Black Santa. In fact, when I think of Santa I can only envision a White man because that is what has most popularly been portrayed.
While I want my child to see a Black Santa because they should grow up seeing images that reflect them, if it is not positive, if the images are encoded with all of the negative stereotypes that are attached to Black people, it will do more harm than good.So many of the images that are positive in this culture are associated with Whiteness; even when the original legend or story involved a person of color. Jesus is the prime example of this. In early Christianity images were truer to what Jesus may have looked like because he was often drawn with darker skin. There is no way that Jesus was a White man with Blue eyes. Now we may say that it is not important what color he was because of the message that he came to earth to deliver but that can only be the case if we lived in a color blind world.

Lol have any of you guys see how the REAL St. Nick was depicted originally?
^^^Yes this the original depiction of how he looked like
That said the idea of Santa Claus is indeed a white creation (its pretty much the Norse god Odin in a red suit, St. Nick himself the real person was a moor)
