    The Santa lie, Santa's race and the real problem for children

    You see eventually parents tell their children that Santa is not real and that mommy and daddy bought the presents.
    Being told that the only way you get these presents is because 'daddy' is a mythical white man consciously or unconsciously tells children of all races that only the white man gives you presents.

    Since this mythical soon to be discovered 'father' is one's daddy, he'd have to come in several races just for the long term sanity of children, although I suspect all the stupid lies told 'to make them happy' or to fit into society's so called norms are enough to make them need psychiatrists in their teens.

    Whether you lie for good or evil, it is still a lie.
    Probably due to a hangover...
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Santa Claus evolved from the Norse god, Odin. He was white.

    Now if they could make a black snowman......

    Sinterklaas

    Sinterklaas is the basis for the North American figure of Santa Claus. It is often claimed that during the American War of Independence, the inhabitants of New York City, a former Dutch colonial town (New Amsterdam), reinvented their Sinterklaas tradition, as Saint Nicholas was a symbol of the city's non-English past.[22] The name Santa Claus supposedly derived from older Dutch Sinter Klaas. However, the Saint Nicholas Society was not founded until 1835, almost half a century after the end of the war.[23] In a study of the "children's books, periodicals and journals" of New Amsterdam, the scholar Charles Jones did not find references to Saint Nicholas or Sinterklaas.[24] Not all scholars agree with Jones's findings, which he reiterated in a book in 1978.[25] Howard G. Hageman, of New Brunswick Theological Seminary, maintains that the tradition of celebrating Sinterklaas in New York existed in the early settlement of the Hudson Valley. He agrees that "there can be no question that by the time the revival of St. Nicholas came with Washington Irving, the traditional New Netherlands observance had completely disappeared."[26] However, Irving's stories prominently featured legends of the early Dutch settlers, so while the traditional practice may have died out, Irving's St. Nicholas may have been a revival of that dormant Dutch strand of folklore. In his 1812 revisions to A History of New York, Irving inserted a dream sequence featuring St. Nicholas soaring over treetops in a flying wagon – a creation others would later dress up as Santa Claus.

    Don't joke about that....

    Touré Says There’s Already a Benevolent Black Man Who Gives Gifts to Kids: Obama
    http://www.mediaite.com/tv/toure-say...to-kids-obama/


    MSNBC host Touré weighed in with his thoughts on Monday on the controversy ignited by Fox News Channel anchor Megyn Kelly last week when she asserted that Santa Claus “just is white.” Touré put a period on that controversy in his commentary on The Cycle when he said that the debate over the race of a mythical figure was off base. America’s youth are already familiar with a benevolent black man with immense powers who gives gifts to children: President Barack Obama. [...]

    “You do know, there is already a generous, benevolent black man in your children’s lives who lives in a place that is magical, who has given something to each and every American, whether they have been naughty or nice,” the MSNBC host concluded. “You know who I’m talking about?”

    So, let's apply that to Obama and Obamacare, now, DUmmy...

    Malaise ... Now I have heard everything.

    What a load of tripe/bollocks! Or to put it in a more refined way of swearing in English ... Pish Tosh! You are nothing but an absolute lefty, racist, fool!

    If you have children, you can always fill the stockings with a piece of COAL! Afterall, isn't that what a nasty "mythical white man" would leave for children of all races that were not born white? Moron!

    He was also based on St. Nick a Greek whom was known for his "secret" gift-giving, if it were a secret who would know about it right?

    Santa Claus is whatever color you want him to be. He's a fictional character.

    I live in metro Detroit, there are black and white Santas at the malls around here. All that matters to the parents of the kids are that he doesn't stink of Thunderbird and vomit, and that he keeps his hands in plain sight while their kids are on his lap.


    As far as the Santa lie goes, my brother and his wife never told the Santa lie to their kids because they didn't want to have to disillusion them later. His kids are generally disillusioned and practical as teens.

    My parents always labeled some of the gifts as being from Santa and some from Mom and Dad-usually the expensive ones were from Mom and Dad.
