Special African-American Santa Holds Court at Macy’s

CBS New York, December 23, 2013

Crowds in the know have been drawn to Macy’s to see the “special Santa,” an African-American Santa Claus tucked away in Santaland at the Macy’s flagship store in Herald Square.

As CBS 2’s Tracee Carrasco reported, the special Santa only appears by request. But he was the sole reason Elizabeth Kittles and her family made the trip from the Bronx Monday night.

“I could have gone anywhere,” Kittles said, “but I came right here to Macy’s because I knew they had an African-American Santa.”

When they reach the front of the line, parents must ask to see the special Santa. {snip}

“There was plenty of African-American families that didn’t know, and when I did tell them, one guy said, ‘They have a black Santa?’ (I said), ‘Yeah they do,’” Kittles said.

Kittles, who has been bringing her sons to see the special Santa at Macy’s for 10 years now, wishes the store would make sure more families know.

“An elf just told me as I was going through Santaland,” Kittles said. “It’s great that they have that option, but it would be great if they put it out there either on the visitors’ website or when they advertise when Santaland is open.”

CBS 2 reached out to Macy’s for a comment about their special Santa. They responded, “Santa is all things to all who believe.”

    There are a couple of days out of the year that I don’t care about all the bad news which we read about every day.

    Merry Christmas to all the Amren ‘regulars’ and those who just stop by to read…

    • John Smith

      Merry XMAS to you too!

      If blacks want a black Santa in their hood, let ’em. I simply don’t give two s**** about whatever it is they supposedly want.

      It’s XMAS the other 364 days at the expense of Whitey anyway, so what difference does it make?

      • Garrett Brown

        Christmas, not Xmas.

        • Max Krakah

          Xmas is a very old abbreviation. It comes from Greek, where the X is the Greek letter Chi which is the first letter of the Greek form of the name “Christ”. It is NOT, as most people think, a secularization of the name.

          • Garrett Brown

            Do we say happy Tgiving or Cbus day? No, we don’t. Merry Christmas, not Xmas.

          • Max Krakah

            stop being a curmudgeon. People have been saying merry Xmas long before the secularization of the holiday.

          • Garrett Brown

            I don’t care what people have been doing, America and western Europe say Merry Christmas, not Xmas.

            There’s no way you could know the temperament of someone online.

          • Max Krakah

            Sorry, you are WRONG! “X-Mass” is a centuries old way of writing christmas in the greek world, which is in Europe. I think the CONFUSION is that people think it was pronounced “Ehks-mas”. It never was. In the Greek world it was always pronounced “Krihst-mas” as the X has the “K” sound in Greek and it was understood it was a shorthand way of writing “Christ”
            You should not let such a trivial thing bother you. It is in fact AMUSING to me when secularists think they are putting something over on us when they use the “X-Mass” form. It it amusing because they are really writing “Christmas” and they don’t know it.

          • Garrett Brown

            Which is why I said Western Europe and America. I don’t care how Greece says or writes Christmas.

          • Paleoconn

            Garrett, Greece is western Europe. Although I agree with you that I am averse to using an expression used by anti-theists, if what Max Krakah says is true, I don’t want these secularists to appropriate our expression.

            On that note Frohe Weinachten to everybody on AmRen. (Try to secularise THAT, cranks!)

          • Garrett Brown

            Greece is eastern or south eastern Europe. They are not part of western Europe.

            The reason you listed is exactly why I hate people using that expression, form, analogy, whatever you want to call it. That’s what these teen atheists and immigrants use. I’m not against being anti theist, I’m against the personalities and characteristics that come along with it now a days.

            Being an atheist used to mean something, a lot of people acquainted it with intelligence and people responsible of deep thought. Now its’ image has been completely destroyed by other ethnic groups sticking their nose in it because it’s “cool”. Take for example that sign in New York City in Time Square, it’s disgusting.

            To be anti theist means you are against all religions and aren’t biased against a particular one. It seems like now a days the self proclaimed atheists are just anti Christian/gentile.

            Sorry to ramble.

          • Max Krakah

            is stormfront closed down today?

          • The Verdict of History

            Garrett,

            The outspoken anti-theists spare no expense in their criticism of Islamic fascism.

            In fact, the global counter-jihad movement is well stocked with sincere left-liberals.

            These left-anti-theists include none other than Chris Hitchens (rip), Sam Harris, Dan Barker and Richard Dawkins.

            Left-liberal Harris goes as far as to acknowledge that “not all religions are created equal”…

            Sadly, however, their treatment of the Islamic problem lacks the very critical racial dimension necessary to grasp the deeper nature of the struggle.

          • Garrett Brown

            This is the Renaissance Humanist – Desiderius Erasmus (social critic and theologian too)…

            He was a close associate of the English Theologian St. Thomas Moore, and contemporary of Martin Luther.

            I simply love his profile.

            Oh? Show me old pictures, adds, etc that use Xmas except maybe a cartoon or something stupid. People spelled out Christmas, that’s what they used. You can go on Google and see how the word has increased in trending over the past ten years. It was almost non existent in the 20th century.

          • Alexandra1973

            My issue is Christmas=Christ’s Mass, which is supposed to be the death of Christ.

            What’s so merry about that, a hideous death on the cross?

            As a Christian, I find the term offensive due to that. I in no way deny the virgin birth or blood atonement.

            That holiday came about in the mid-I-want-to-say-fourth-or-fifth century, I think fourth, when the head honcho was merging paganism with Christianity. The true Christians called baloney on that and wouldn’t go along with it.

            So that’s why I refuse to keep it. I consider it as essentially a Catholic holiday and I’m a dyed-in-the-wool Protestant–specifically, independent fundamental Baptist.

            Kinda irks me how I can listen to the Word of God preached at church, but around December everyone has Xmas on the brain.

        As a Christian, I have to say that’s actually more accurate. No one knows when Jesus was born.

        My son’s birthday is on December 16, so that’s *our* holiday. 🙂

        • ShermanTMcCoy

          Jesus was obviously born on April 15, when all the world was to be taxed.

          • Alexandra1973

            Actually, whoever came up with our income tax law decided it would be on the anniversary of Lincoln’s death. And I believe that’s about the same date the Titanic went down.

            Beware the ides of April, as a friend of mine says!

          • Most people don’t know there is a Ides in every month.

        • itdoesnotmatter

          It certainly was not in December. As the NT states around the birth of Jesus: “there were shepherds abiding in the fields, keeping watch over their flocks by night.”
          Sheep were brought in during the cold winter months.

          • Whiteplight sees the Emperor N

            In Europe, but not in the Middle East. Anyway, if you think the words of a myth provide any real starting point for forensic determinations when nothing else exists to substantiate. while oodles of scholarship point to a much later creation by writers who have been shown to be forgers.

          • itdoesnotmatter

            [snip] if you think the words of a myth provide any real starting point for forensic determinations when nothing else exists to substantiate.

            I don’t. In my view, the NT is a document of faith, not historicity.
            I quoted the scripture in context with the thread.

          • Whiteplight sees the Emperor N

            Okay, but you sound like a liberal, not anyone interested in the survival of whites or even the survival of white, European culture. Knowing some of the real history of how Christianity came to being would strip you of the notion of a likely “Christian Messiah.” The historical Jesus was a leader of a Jewish faction that fought Roman occupation. Then, as now, religion was a vital part of political ambition in the Middle East. It’s inexcusable for someone to claim to value logic, but have no knowledge of the issue they claim to be logical about. And you throw away every bit of logic when you turn to faith as an excuse for knowing. The worst part of religion is that it provides the intellectually lazy with excuses and supports them in ignorant righteousness. Such ignorance might have been excusable two thousand years ago, (even though the schools of Greek Philosophy had to be destroyed to allow Christianity to grow), but there is no excuse for it today other than frank laziness and emotionalism.

            If you think “faith” will save whites from the problems we face, then you must calculate the effectiveness of that “faith” when it has mattered in history (to people). The stats show that you have zero reason to rely on “faith” for any predictable result. Praying to the Golden Arches at a MacDonald’s will bring the same results.

            But the issue is larger than this. Those that follow Christianity are stuck with its edicts, and the most dominant ones by far contradict any notion of racial exclusiveness or even survival here on earth. They are called on to be childlike (in faith) and sheep as adults, led by a “good” shepherd. But as sheep you are herded and sheared. All religion was created for the purpose of controlling people. Most people need some form of religion for a feeling of cohesiveness and purpose out of what could be called, cosmic loneliness. But giving oneself over to a religion like Christianity (or any such heavy handed form of psychological manipulation) makes you little more than a pawn in a vast and very earthly chess game.

            I argue against Christianity for whites mostly because it is so easily and effective in undermining the kind of spirituality and philosophy that is required for our survival. That is aside from the absurdity of the Christian proposition itself.

            Meanwhile, you listen to music and honor a never extant Jewish “Messiah,” evidencing that you expect the Apocalypse, an event that your Jesus supposedly said would occur within the lifetime of the people he was speaking to. With such “faith” there is no reason to do much at all about anything. Just tithe as directed and you’re home free.

          • itdoesnotmatter

            Okay, but you sound like a liberal, not anyone interested in the
            survival of whites or even the survival of white, European culture.

            You read me wrong, Whiteplight, or I am not making myself clear. In consideration of our fellow Amreners who are Christian, I maintain respect for the celebration of their high holy days.
            Anything but a liberal with Christian leanings, I am a Euro-centric AngloCelticNord faithless, infidel and ultra-conservative. That does not deter me from appreciating art and music that arose from those inspired by Christian faith.
            You are wrong; I am familiar with Rome’s history and administration of colonial Judea during the era in question. I believe the one who is called Jesus represents a composite of several gods, goddesses and deliverers, a politically expedient inclusivist invention of Roman church.
            I am treading lightly, having been flagged and moderated for non-Christianity, though I am not militant about it.

          • Whiteplight sees the Emperor N

            I appreciate your effort to explain yourself. However, you then willfully read ME wrong. The difference between you and I are not that great, you can be called a liberal by some here, but they, like you, are going by polarized reactionary categorizing. Let’s not make that mistake as we seek a meeting of minds.

            To one who claims familiarity with Roman history, you make a significant mistake in calling the Roman occupation a “colonization.” Roman citizens, that is, people from Rome or even Italy did not migrate to Judea or the Middle East to fill the lands occupied by Rome. Rome typically sought to make the “world” Rome by instituting Roman rule, not by peopling it with their own. This is a salient point, and no one can claim familiarity with Roman or any Western history if they don’t understand that what Romans did was “Romanize” their conquered territories, which is a huge difference from colonizing.

            The Jesus of the Bible is certainly a composite of sun gods, hero gods and even perhaps a composite of a number of Jewish resistance leaders going back at least in the immediate era to a historic figure called “Judah the Galelian, a man that pre-figured the Biblical Jesus by a couple decades. If an actual person named Jesus actually existed, his story would have been more like Judah’s then that of a “son of god,” of god, born during the solstice celebration, something universal from Persia to Western Europe for perhaps thousands of years up to then and beyond. The Persian sun god Mithra was a popular religion in Rome during the time of Jesus up to the legalizing of Christianity in the 3rd century. His birth was celebrated on December 25th. In the ancient view, the earth dies but is reborn at the event of the solstice.

            I think it is fascinating that the ancients, even prehistorical people knew more about solar events than Jews or Christians in the first century and beyond. They understood that their very lives depended upon solar events like the solstice and equinox events, but they did not know with certainty that the sun and its life giving warmth would return, so they felt they had to coax it. The Winter Solstice was a celebration of rebirth and light. Mid-Winter had a celebration as well, so February 2nd was another light festival, now called Candlemass by the RCC, but largely ignored by Protestants. In Ireland it became St. Brighyd’s Day, a Celtic goddess. Easter, from the fertility goddess of spring, Eoster, etc., etc. At least these deities connected the people to their land and real lives.

            The reason I am so heartily against Christianity is because it has historically been a bad thing for Europeans and especially for our future. Aside from the schizoid-neurosis that is required to willfully profess it and claim rationality, that acceptance forces he forfeit of a huge swathes of knowledge and even the recognition that we must work for our own survival, not pray to any god or have faith in myths. At least the ancients did not let their “pagan” belief systems prevent them from intellectual explorations, the Greeks being the prime example. But the worst for us now is that the weight and actual words of the NT acts against whites that wish to separate themselves and survive through a spiritual claim of exclusiveness via a religious backed political ideal. Whites will never be taken seriously by other intelligent whites and this includes a huge amount of whites that are on the fence right now, because of the huge barrier that Christianity creates. It is going to require conservative whites, whites that want to survive as a group, to recognize as individuals that their Christian beliefs were forced into their ancestors and that it keeps them from their true, indigenous European spirituality.

            I would agree with anyone that sees the need for community. By usurping this for so long in Europe, Christianity took that role over. Many churches in America today are little more than community meeting places and the venir of Christianity is all that really remains. If they finally saw through that usurpation, the spiritual strength and conviction of whites would be increased by powers of ten. THAT is why I argue the way I have for eight years here.

          • itdoesnotmatter

            Roman citizens, that is, people from Rome or even Italy did not migrate to Judea or the Middle East to fill the lands occupied by Rome.

            I realize the Romans did not colonize Judea in the “colonial settlement” sense. Unfortunate choice of words on my part.
            They garrisoned Legions there, and men being, well…men, I would conjecture there was fraternization with resultant bi-racial offspring.
            The rest of your post is inarguable, at least by me. We agree on most points.

          • Whiteplight sees the Emperor N

            I’m sorry, but you are still completely incorrect. Rome did not make everyone in every land citizens and then not until very late in the Western Empire and long after the first century. That move was designed to replace a Rome that had been ravaged by malaria in Rome for a century and it applied to the Northern peoples, not the Middle East as the Empire had already split into Eastern and Western and ruled separately. You also seem oblivious to the fact of the War of the Jewish Revolt in 66 that saw a huge number of Jews killed in Judea and laid the foundation for enormous historical resentments. (BTW, out of this came the NT, with its tale political/religious godman, Jesus. Also, the Book of Revelations that is plainly an expression of hatred and wished revenge for the Roman genocide during it).

            The next BIG historical issue you also miss is the 2nd century Bar Kochba Revolt (a rebellion wherein a new “messiah” presented himself and is clearly remembered a militant-religious-apocalyptic messiah). This resulted in the final and total destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem and the forced dispersion of the Jews from Judea and Israel (as a national location), again after another genocidal bloodbath on the Jews and THE cause of the 2,000 year diaspora and persecution (you couldn’t sell Christianity to Romans unless Jews were to blame for Jesus’ execution, etc.). These historical facts rather completely refute the idea that the occupied territories of the Middle East had Roman citizenship.

            The last big historical point you miss and hugely, is the idea that Jews would fraternize with Roman soldiers and thereby introduce Italian genetics into the Jewish population there. Their laws strictly forbade it and Jews were quite strict about it. Even if there was a renegade Jewish prostitute (stoning was a big deterrent, by the way), it would have been (and is) laughable in the Monty Python fashion, to imagine the fashion of such a union (even though Titus, son of Vespasian (who Nero appointed to suppress the revolt) seems to have kept a Jewish consort (perhaps against her will, but also as likely a Jewish “spy”)) . There was however, a palpable habit of of some conversion to Judaism in Rome and other Western regions, reversing your notion and direction of genetic drift (as proven lately by genetic research). Nero’s niece is listed as one that converted, presaging the habit of conversion led by noble women to “mystical” Eastern religions. The fact is that Rome was very cosmopolitan and attracted a myriad of religions that competed with the official state religion of Sol Invictis (which is what “Maximus” is practicing in the film “Gladiator”). But Mithraism, Judaism etc., were tolerated as long as they were peaceful. Christians became violent as they fought among themselves and Jews in Rome (this is what led to the advent of the “Christians thrown to the Lions” period. That and the fact of Christian converts rushing Roman garrisons in suicidal frenzies as they sought an exit to “The Kingdom of Heaven.” This was the reason why suicide was made a sin in the 2-3rd century).

            I am sorry, but your posts reflect a high school level understanding (misunderstanding) of Roman and resultant Western history. If you can not react vaingloriously, I want to suggest that you read Edward Gibbon’s classic of Western history, “The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.” It is a prodigious task as the full work is six big volumes long and covers nearly 1500 years (to the final fall of Constantinople). But you can get a paperback abridged edition of the very important first three volumes online for less than $15. I recommend it to anyone that wants to understand our real history. It is the foundation for any serious student of Western history and essential to anyone that wants to discuss the condition and future of Europeans and the white race.

        • Whiteplight sees the Emperor N

          I salute you for your honesty here.

          The historical fact is that December 25, was the Persian Sun God Mithra’s birthday. The Roman Christians usurped it because that religion was very popular and they (early Christian leaders including “Paul” created the religion by “borrowing” from other much older “pagan” religions so that converts could more easily be convinced. Christmas is the old Solstice (all over most of the Old World (Europe and Central Asia), and Easter, the old Vernal Equinox celebration where Eoster (in Europe) was the Goddess of Spring and the egg and “March Hares” were symbols of what was a fertility celebration. There’s your Easter Bunny and eggs.

          But the Eastern “Greek Orthodox” Christians did not adapt that date because Mithraism was not popular in the Hellenic world. So today, January 6, I believe is the claimed day. It’s also where the 12 days of Christmas came from because I vaguely recall (from my time living among Orthodox Christians in the Balkans) that this is supposed to be the period the mythic journey of Three Wise Men too from the East to Bethlehem.

          Myths are nice and hero stories are inspirational, but they are MYTHS. My main problem with Christianity is that it’s historical product has been a chronic negative for whites and Europe, but also that it prevents the mind from critical thought and necessary self-discovery. (Plus it renders the believer highly manipulable).

          • Geo1metric

            My problem with being a “believer” in Christianity is that one must suspend rational thought and take that “leap of faith”.

            I also have a problem with the way Christianity was “established” in Europe; much of it was done with the sword.

            It makes for a great “social control mechanism, though”.

            It simply doesn’t work for me.

          • Whiteplight sees the Emperor N

            Most of the virulent comments that I have attracted over eight years of commenting are by those who very obviously are afraid to really know about real history and what really happened. You hit good succinct points on the fact that rational thought is cancelled by that “leap of faith.” It is very difficult to make sense to people that have suspended rationality and refuse to examine issues objectively. But worse is leaning on it as a reason for trying to save the white race – the ultimate in unsupported rationalizing.

      • Who Me?

        Thank you and a belated Happy Solstice to you too. Also Merry Christmas to my Christian friends, and to those who prefer a more traditional, but still secular holiday. It’s a few days of good cheer and happiness in spite of the evils abroad.

        You do know that Christmas was a Solstice celebration first (for thousands of years), when the nature was “reborn” after it’s death in the Autumn? You DO know that December 25, was the Sun God Mithra’s birth day? He died on the solar event day and rose in three days! Your religion is nothing but usurpation and deception with heavy handed manipulation that an eight year old child ought to be able to see through (I did).

          One item that we all need to recognize and seize upon is the demonstration of the desire for separation that this “black Santa” thing evidences. It seems like a good initiation point for a Jerrod Taylor essay.

    Shouldn’t an African Santa be wearing a different costume? In the end, any cultural separation between blacks & whites is good. Asian Santa? Mexican Santa, etc.

    Of course if white kids said they only wanted to sit on the lap of a white Santa they would have been hounded by the press and accused of being little “nazi’s”.

  • Difference between White Santa and black Santa.

    White Santa goes out and drinks after a day with dealing with brats.
    black Santa just comes into work drunk because he knows nobody will show up to see him.

    True story:

    There was a guy that “manned” a booth at the exchange. At the time there was a requirement that any firm that had a floor presence maintain a desk. I look over at him and then look at a guy I did transactions with and said “What’s up with him?” …. “Oh he’s just sleeping off a drunk.” Worked for Israel Englander.

  • Massif1

    Black Santa doesn’t bring gifts, he deposits credits into EBT cards.

    • Sounds like black Santa is really White, ….
      Or maybe he really is black and just using White money he stole.

      • Irishgirl

        Be sure to check your wallet after sitting on Special Santa’s lap.

        • Irishgirl – Stand up when you feel black Santa’s “ligament”.

  • Puggg

    This is so stupid. When I was a toddler back in the racist late 50s Gimbles in Philadelphia had two Santas you could have pictures taken with, one White, one colored. What is the big deal?

    • DonReynolds

      Meet the new black Santa……same as the old black Santa. New crop of idiots think black Santa is a new invention.

    • DonReynolds

      By the same token……every new generation thinks they invented sex. HA HA.

    • Max Krakah

      gimbels was always a lesser quality store, and went out of business a couple of decades ago. I knew of one of the “heiresses” as she frequented the university library I was working in at the time. She was a mentally disturbed person that hoarded books, wrote poetry in German in the margins of the books, and stood on Newbury Street in Boston, wearing a fur coat, and asking people for money. The family seems to have been touched with a bit of insanity so deciding to have a black santa just goes right along with the rest of the package.

      • IstvanIN

        The founding Gimbel Brothers were quite successful and were in business for quite some time. It was a middle-class store below Wanamker’s but better than Lit’s.

        One nutty relative does not an entire family make.

        A conglomerate put Gimble’s under, by the way.

        • Max Krakah

          Tue, I guess we all have one nutty relative.

          • IstvanIN

            If you are lucky, sometimes more than one……

          • Max Krakah

            To be honest, I think I am THAT one.

  • Whiteplight sees the Emperor N

    Well, they steal everything else from whites, from exotic sounding names (even if they also exaggerate them) to blonde wigs and coloring, history and our very whiteness, so it can hardly be a surprise when a historical European tradition from European – white culture is appropriated along with the rest.

  • DonReynolds

    Blacks prefer a black Santa……..GOOD.

  • Luca

    They already have a black Santa and his name is Obama.

  • Katherine McChesney

  • Xerxes22

    If I see a Black Santa on my roof tonight, I’m getting my shotgun out.

    • Alexandra1973

      Yeah, ’cause he ain’t giving stuff, he’s TAKING stuff!

  • AutomaticSlim

    They should have put him at the Macy’s on Fulton street in Downtown Brooklyn.
    That one is almost exclusively patronized by blacks.

  • bigone4u

    When black Santa slips down the chimney tonight, it won’t be in black neighborhoods, but in white ones, because as he says, “Dats wher all da good stuffs be.” And he won’t be bringing gifts, but taking them to the nearest pawn shop to finance a spree at the local ho-ho-ho house.

  • sbuffalonative

    It’s just another example of an unimaginative people who have no cultural history before they met the white man. Their only claim to fame is that they appropriate and pervert white culture and claim it as their own.

  • smedley

    LIttle boy what toys can I steal for you this year? And what about your ho?

    the narcissism of blacks is boundless.

    You know someone is going to “Photoshop” pics of this guy and add a bottle of Twister (or more) to the images. Or maybe they won’t have to. ; )

      • Steve33

        Honest to god I seen about four blacks sitting together in an emergency room passing around a bucket of chicken and biscuits. Priceless. I wouldn’t dare make this up.

        • Max Krakah

          That’s what iPhones were made for. Don’t let the next such event go undocumented.

          • Steve33

            I couldn’t believe it. You could see the crumbs falling on the floor.

          • Max Krakah

            well, if obamacare survives, that is what the medical team will look like

  • TheCogitator

    We have a black playing a Norse god. Should we be surprised they want to play another white character? They have no literature or traditions so they have to steal ours. Stealing is what they do.

    • Strike_Team

      The folks in charge are behind all of that. They always want to push for “non-traditional” casting whenever they feel they can. They’ll keep doing it until they get rid of most if not all white characters. Or until only “they” play any and all “white” characters. You won’t see them pull this with traditionally non-white characters. That’s not part of the plan.

      • TheCogitator

        Exactly. You will never see a white man playing a Zulu chief. But you may see a black play George Washington.

  • Talltrees

    Merry Christmas to all!

  • John R

    Elizabeth “Kittles”? Rhymes with skittles! LOL. Really, you can’t make this stuff up. So, they go out of their way to find an “African American” Santa? Geeze. I didn’t even know the traditional Santa WAS American. I thought he was Dutch. But whatever. Isn’t it nice that we now have an “American” Santa, huh? (Sarcasm intended.)

  • Max Krakah

    You could stack watermelons in a tree shape and have juju claus sit in from of it handing out chicken bones to the sprogs

  • ssviking

    “Sorry kids there won’t be a Christmas this year black Santa came down the chimney and took all the presents”

  • ssviking

    I think we should get blacks more involved in hanakuh i mean we have to be inclusive right?

  • gemjunior

    I only want an Anglo Saxon Santa personally, but I don’t suppose anyone cares what a white girl wants nowadays. Black people are just doing the usual – stealing another white icon and imagining they have a right to claim it as their own. Far from the truth.

  • Anon

    So Santa…where is Zwarte Piet?

  • James Jr.

    Instead of delivering gifts to children, this Santa will come down the chimney and steal the gifts.

  • James Jr.

    Instead of milk don’t forget to leave a 40 ounce out.

    I get assistance due to my circumstances, but hey, at least I’d paid into it!

    Hopefully my circumstances change soon, though.

    • Irishgirl

      That was the original intention of public assistance – to help out those temporarily in need. I hope things get better for you!

  • Bantu_Education

    Hoe, hoe, hoe….!!

  • angrymike

    Something I really don’t understand, they fought to end separate bathrooms, drinking fountains and places on the buss they had to sit, now they want the segregation all over again, makes no sense…..

    • Alexandra1973

      It has to be their idea.

      • angrymike

        Oh, got ya…….. ;-/

    • Four of my many axioms:

      ***

      4. Blacks who have power over other blacks will implement a system that smells a lot like segregation, apartheid or Jim Crow.

      5. If left to their own devices, anyone who has power over blacks will implement a system that smells a lot like segregation, apartheid or Jim Crow.

      6. The reason for #4 and #5 is that most people get the government they deserve most of the time. Read Animal Farm for the definitive user’s manual about that sort of thing.

      15. Equality or egalitarianism is a front for one elite trying to displace and replace another.

    Christmas on a cracker! I thought Christmas was of, by and FOR crackers!

  • Laura Dilworth

    Marshall Field’s in Chicago, had a black Santa in the early 1980’s

  • T_Losan

    They want their own black santa, let ’em have it! Ditto for black schools, neighborhoods, and political representatives. Hey, why not let them have their own black country and they can all move there! Permanently.

    • Cold_Gravy

      Let them also live in their own black countries. Since they clearly prefer black.

  • NoMosqueHere

    I don’t mind a black santa; we already have a black satan, and he lives in the white house.

  • Johnny Clay

    “Special Santa?” Sounds like he’s got something wrong with him. Personally, I could care less what color Santa is. He is whatever people want him to be. If someone is happy with a green Santa with purple dots, so be it. I think there are more important things to worry about.

  • Anon

    I notice Black Santa doesn’t deliver to teh hood.

  • King of My Castle

    My Santa is a transvestite.

  • Ella

    If a toddler asks, how can there be both a Black and White Santa, a wise answer would be that the Black one got stuck in the chimney on the way down delivering the re-gifted gifts.

  • Cold_Gravy

    It’s more about rubbing the noses of White people in it.

  • Cold_Gravy

    Obama is going to pay for her gas and mortgage. What a nice guy!

    Wait a minute where is he getting the cash from? Let me guess.
