Can Santa Be Black?
Expert guy weighs in
The War On Christmas is in full swing and we have a new ally: Black Santa! He’s coming to undermine Traditional White Santa and White Baby Jesus.
Black people have for years and decades used imagery of a black Santa Claus in their homes, but since no one at Fox News interacts with black people they only found out about this concept last week. They lined up a panel of four white people to give us their opinions on the matter. Conclusion: Mr. Claus is indeed caucasian, just as the Coca-Cola advertisements have always shown.
You start to see that maintaining these fictions isn’t just for the kid’s benefit.
Jamie Foxx will play Electro in “Amazing Spider-Man 2" even though Electro was a white guy with a terrible costume in the comics. I guarantee you people are genuinely upset by this.
Most fictional characters—especially magic ones who ride on reindeer through the sky—don’t actually have a racial component to them. But some do. For instance, you couldn’t recast “Django Unchained” with only white people, though I’m sure a host at Fox may do a segment on that in an attempt to make some sort of point.
