    Santa Claus was Chinese of course, we have proof. And if you question us, you're racist.

    Ok well if you want to argue that Saint Nick is a pure-blood anglo that's your claim to prove.

    Well actually it was a quick google on where Saint Nick came from, not an assumption. So I got a tiny little piece of history trivia wrong. I'll get over it.

    I have not argued anything yet

    But I will now

    As a historical figure Santa Claus would have looked like and had the general cultural traits of people living in what is now called turkey, his specific ethnicity is most likely unknown. That means he is not generally western European in looks or culture.

    As a cultural tradition in the US and Canada, he is western European in looks, and for the last 100 years, has American cultural traits.

    I will not explore the some of the darker northern European versions of people like Santa here

    Typical liberal thought processes you have going on there.

    Why folks can't accept the fact that Sinterklaas was created as a white male, simply boggles the mind.
    I asked you before and you ignored me. I'll ask you again: how do you define "white". Most people would agree that a Greek born in southern Turkey is not "white"

    Slow news day or something? It's not even close to being Christmas!

    Santa is whatever a child imagines him to be.

    No he is not.
    He is a white man and was created as such.
    A child's imagination matters not to that.
