Default White Santa? Of course right?

Hey guys I was watching the news and got pretty annoyed, why is everything so race based. Why can't people just leave things alone and let the poor guy stay white after all ST. Nicholas is from village of Patara where at the time it was a greek country so he is white or atleast greek "which I think count as whitish?

Either way why do a .....certain group in america fight this? Are people just trying to start a fight for no reason now a days?

oh here is a site telling about santa good reading all

http://www.stnicholascenter.org/page...s-st-nicholas/

All in all I do not really care to much about this other then the fact they are being so..... improper to such a great man. The Greek had an amazing man known world wide for his deeds and is celebrated and linked to an important day to those of faith.

Is there really people moaning about the colour of Father Christmas skin?

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.

We are fucked. Just accept it.

The sooner you accept it and get the popcorn (or pitchforks) ready for when it kicks off the easier it'll be to swallow.

Of course he's white. Black people steal stuff, they don't give it away.

Well, the historical St. Nick was white... But, then again, Santa Claus is a (CLOSE YOUR EYES KIDDIES) myth, so I guess you can do whatever you want with him. And everything has to be race based because there are racist bastards in the world who make it so, and then others react strongly.

One of the more pernicious philosophies that pervades western culture (especially American education) is "identity politics"...the idea that who you are, what you believe, what you should value, and how you should behave are all easily boiled down to what "group" you identify with. To truly "own" or "identify" with something it must be absorbed into your group identity.

For some it is about race, black v white v brown
For some it is about gender, male v female v confused
For some it is about sex, gay v straight
For some it is about religion - christian v muslim
and so on...

This world would be a much better place if we would teach people to look at others as individuals and treat them with respect instead of dehumanizing others and putting everyone into "boxes" so you can treat them "appropriately".

Tribalism seems to be the norm throughout humanity's history though, so in the words of Jez:

If we're going 40k, let's have a Slaaneshi Santa, straight from the Eye of Terror.

Sit on his knee. Then you'll find out what's politically fucking incorrect. And anatomically, and morally, but that's by the by.

Oh somebody is claiming your imaginary friend's skin color is different to what you think it is? Hold on one moment while I get the sand paper to wipe your ass with. Here is an idea, how about your just imagine differently, he does after all... not fucking exist.
