Yes, Megyn, There Is a Black Santa (in the WWE)

Alex Shephard, The Wire, December 24, 2013

On last night’s WWE Raw, a black “Good Santa” saved Christmas by heroically crushing a white “Bad Santa”—and refuting Megyn Kelly’s assertion that “Santa just is white.”

Bad Santa, Damien Sandow, was intent on canceling Christmas in the name of personal responsibility—as one of the fight’s commentators noted, “This is good for kids worldwide: they have to work for their gifts!”

It was also a victory for liberals. Good Santa’s promise of charity defeated Bad Santa’s belief that kids should have to “work for their gifts.” {snip} In February, the WWE featured Tea Party-esque characters who railed that he saw so many faces “not like mine.” One complained, ”Where did all these people come from?” He got huge boos.
