is Santa white?

Original post made by Christian, Downtown North, on Dec 14, 2013

Fox News says Santa and Jesus are white men and non-white people just have to get used to being second class Christians. What does Palo Alto really think about this? Are there any Palo Alto stores employing non-white Santa Clauses?

What Fox News said:

"And by the way, for all you kids watching at home, Santa just is white. But this person is maybe just arguing that we should also have a black Santa. But, you know, Santa is what he is, and just so you know, we’re just debating this because someone wrote about it, kids…Just because it makes you feel uncomfortable doesn’t mean it has to change. You know, I mean, Jesus was a white man too. He was a historical figure; that’s a verifiable fact—as is Santa, I want you kids watching to know that."

--Megyn Kelly

I haven't seen a non-white Santa around, have you?

Santa is "a historical figure; that’s a verifiable fact".

Okay Megyn -- YOU are the war on Christmas. Learn how to spell your name.
