    Yep! Still not sure why some black activists are making a big deal that Santa is White.
    Wait a minute! The Easter Bunny is White too!!
    Conspiracy? Hmm…….

    The Groundhog is a rodent of color.
    Is that because his holiday is nonreligious?

    You think Megyn Kelly and Gretchen Carlson are “black activists”? Wow!

    Santa is as green as a twenty dollar bill. But he’s also comes in plastic of all colors.
    Christmas on the other hand, is multicolored and in ‘theory’, all about family, friends, compassion, and caring.
    Having seen Ms. Kelly’s original statement in all of its vehemence and certainty regarding the color of Santa and Jesus, I found her comment that it was all ‘tongue in cheek’ to be a bit disingenuous.
    Merry Christmas folks.
    Sincerely,

    I’m still not sure why anyone needs to make a big deal over some kids thinking Santa isn’t white. Who the #$%^ cares if some kids believe a fictional character is black, Asian, or Latin???

    Conspiracy? Hmm…….

    St Nicholas was Bishop of Myra in Lycia in the third century. Practically nothing is known of his life, but there has been a devotion to him since ancient times.

    A resident of that place at that time would in fact be of middle eastern appearance. Santa, however, is green because only a martian could possess such superhuman abilities. Martians can change their appearance, I hear.

    I found her original statement silly, NFL. I found her attempt to get out from under the criticism it evoked, and her calling it race baiting, to be disingenuous. Did you see the original comment and the following explanation on how it was all supposed to be ‘humor" that followed?
    She seemed very serious, and even angry, at the idea someone might call Santa anything other than white.
    Once again, it’s just as silly as those who were upset to see Nick Fury portrayed by Samuel L. Jackson. After all…. Sargent Fury was a white guy!
    Take care, NFL.
    Sincerely,
    C.

    Um, actually St. Nicolas was Turkish. Not so white.

    Oh, and Jesus was Jewish and thus Semitic, so unlikely to look like those portraits you see a lot in the US.

    Lycia was in Southern Turkey. Turks then and now would consider themselves dark, not white.

    Tsk,tsk!

    That was the real Jesus (or Yeshua ben Joseph). The other one was only half Jewish! And everybody knows his daddy is as white as the driven snow (except for that found near coal burning power plants).
