This all started because Aisha Harris wrote an opinion article explaining how she felt about Santa always being portrayed as a white man. The Fox news anchor wanted to make sure she knew her feelings were wrong. She had a panel debate this woman’s feeling and she concluded that even if it bothered her she should keep her mouth shut because Santa is white. “Just because it makes you feel uncomfortable doesn’t mean it has to change.”
Others who pointed out the ridiculousness of the whole thing were called racist and race baiters. Jon Stuart took it a step further and showed the pictures of what St Nickolas looked like based on findings of the Catholic Church. The fox news anchor than said it was all a joke even though she said days before that she was a serious journalist who would not put a whole panel together to make a joke.
My problem with all of this why can’t Aisha Harris explain how see felt as a little girl without having to defend her stance.My teenage son was scared of Santa at the mall as a small child and called him a bad man. Do we need to get a panel to “debate” if Santa is good or bad?
