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...

im thinking,
people tend to base their idea of what santa and even jesus looked like on what they themselves can relate to.
so the pictures (art work) of these two are really based on someone elses idea - and always has been.
so the idea that someone would get all bent out of shape about this teachers statement to me is just plain wrong. IMO that in itself is promoting racism - which seems to be the norm anymore in this country.
how sad that is. instead of moving forward - we find each step is really leading us back to the same place...

black santa, white, Chinese - GREEN one, who the heck cares. its all based on something considered "good" in this world.
hmmm
leave it to the adults - to mess it up for the little kids..

I see alotta hate in this post.
Care to show us some love?
I still think the teacher was out-of-line.
You are supposed to motivate your students into participating in school activities.
At all cost....
Not degrade them for it.........break their Spirit/morale
I would expect such behavior from fellow students.
Now.......

Where does that put the teacher?

NEIN!!!! NEIN!!!!! NEIN!!! NEIN!!!!! Tis Santa who would allow ME to chop the bad little children into mince meat. I would run tenderize them alive with my ruten and boil them in my tub. After which I run them through my grinder cast from the crushed bones of the naughty children of Christmas past.

Let's think about thuis rationally shall we?
If Santa was indeed black.....and he came out into the streets and said "Ho ho ho!!!!" do you know how many "sistahs" would come running?

This is ludicrous, all they have to do is check the evidentiary data; go to any shopping mall, store, on street corners – you will see for yourself that Santa is indeed white! That's because he came from (originated in) Germanic countries and culture, not South Africa. Or Mexico, or anyplace else which [at the time] had only white people there. Jesus on the other hand, I mean the real person when He lived, would not have been white – although He is represented that way in all the artwork and icons which came out of Western and Eastern European cultures. But therein lies the difference; Jesus was a real person (whether you believe in his biblical representation or not) and Santa is mythological.

Our Santa has 30' long stinging tentacles.

Besides that, He's pretty much like the rest of the Santa's out there.

IMHO 'in my humble opinion':
If Santa was black, he would be so many things Santa ain't!
Use President Obama for example, he's black:

You wouldn't get what you thought you were getting for Christmas,
and if you did he'd break it before you got it.

You couldn't leave milk and cookies he'd want a beer and a joint

All his elf's would be fagots, perverts, and Muslims

And a black man would never have a white beard

And black just don't look that good dressed in red (Oxymoron)
