When I was very little, I asked my parents if Santa Claus was "white" all over the world.
They told me that Santa is whatever color a child wants him to be.
"Even purple?" I asked.
"Of course." my parents replied. "Santa belongs to children, and is whatever color the child imagines."
That is the true "color" of Santa Claus.

yes Santa is black. and so too was Alexander the Great, Galileo, Christopher Columbus, Isaac Newton, Napoleon, Mozart, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Thomas Paine, Ab Lincoln, Winston Churchill, J F K and Ronald Reagan.

just give the liberal media and communist agenda another 50 years. if the great men of history who contributed in leaps and bounds to the world we live in today are not rewritten as black or brown then they will be demonized, bullied and belittled because they are white.

I never thought we would get to be this dumb. When we worry about whether or not Santa is white. I guess this is the result of too many years of political correctness.

confused. Political correctness means that you show people respect. What was the point of a high school teacher commenting about a kids costume based on race?

Actually it is ingenious. We will continue to move left in politics until the nation can not pay for it anymore. The growing tyranny will continue in tandem with the leftward movement. The leftward movement will be discarded when the weight of government can not pay out to all but the tyranny will become full force at that point. Anyway, the question is Santa white is just a test to see how far left we moved. The response by people was what we all thought it would be. But it is the degree of that response which interests the elitists. To progressives, I know a Fox employee was involved. but to many people Fox is not conservative. Just conservative compared to practically everything else on television.

Santa is not white. Nor is he black. He's a [email protected] fantasy.

No Virginia... There is no Santa Claus.
