    Teacher to student: You can't be Santa -- you're black! [W:35]

    Teacher to student: You can't be Santa -- you're black! - CNN.com

    The family of an African-American high school student in New Mexico says he's crushed after a teacher questioned why he was wearing Santa garb during a school holiday dress-up day last week, CNN affiliate KOAT reported.

    I don't follow I've heard this a couple of times but I don't understand why the idea of santa being white and only white is a bad thing? asian holidays tend to have asian charactors because thats who they are.... why do we need to change the idenity of fictional charactors to be multiracial? this being a story I see on fox news and cnn makes no sense to me... (First Cmass so I might not understand some underlying problem with this)

    The color of santa is white it has been since the holiday was invented right? why are people crying about it being racist?

    I don't understand this at all.

    We all know that Santa does not exist, so who cares what color he is?

    If you want to go back in history, what color was the man Santa was based on?

    I agree with Mason: SANTA ISN'T REAL. He doesn't have a race. You might as well get offended by someone saying the easter bunny is Filipino.

    And nobody was crying about it being racist. Some teacher was a complete dick to some black guy who was wearing a santa suit.

    If this really happened then the teacher needs a big smack. If the kid want's to dress up like Santa more power to em'. Don't rain on his parade.
    Give a man a fish and he can eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he can sit in a boat, drinking beer all day while you fool around with his Woman.

    There is a search feature that helps assure you don't keep repeating the same topic in multiple OPs

    Here is an example of searching for "Santa". The search box is in the upper right corner of the page.
