Right now in Brasil it is probably 100 degrees F or 40 degrees C. Santa is wearing shorts and drinking a Brahma Beer right now.

In Colorado, the LGBT community is taking the issue to court, alleging Santa is gay. I saw daddy kissing Santa Claus...

Yeah okay Santa is a factionalized character but he is based on the sainted Bishop Nicholas who was indeed white
No, he wasn't, not like he is depicted mostly. He would have been a darker skinned man since he was from what is present day Turkey. Check out this forensic recreation of what he likely would have looked like...

But St Nicholas who was Greek would be considered white wouldn't he?
Not necassarily. He is from a region that is now Turkey, which used to be Greece. I don't think you would consider many people from Turkey, white.

"..A New Mexico high school teacher has been disciplined after a parent says the man told his black son that Santa Claus is white.."

Well, maybe Santa was white. The Santa who came my kid's school was definately white. You can argue wether your own Santa should be black or Latino next year, but you can generally tell what race a specific Santa is.

Don't get it.

Another questions is how can you tell he has rosy red cheeks if he's black?

I can't believe this thread is still alive. I still don't care what color santa is.

What is even more absurd is the ignorant conceit that Jesus was white.
Why do you leftists care?

Neither Santa or Jesus exists to you, so what does it matter?

I've even heard you lefties bitching that christmas shouldn't be on Dec. 25th because Jesus was actually born in april or august or some bullshit.

I don't know of a lot of "imaginary" people that were born in the first place.

So either you lefties are admitting Santa and/or Jesus do exist

-OR-

you're just all batcrap crazy (which we all know you are) by trying to make something out of the fact that it DOESN'T FUCKING MATTER WHAT COLOR AN IMAGINARY CHARACTER IS!!

This subject is ridiculous. Who cares if Santa is black or white?! What bothers me the most is who are the people that elected, Jerry Springer, Mayor of Cincinnati! Actually how many people can spell Cincinnati, Chillicothe, Scioto, or pronounce them!
