So, Runemang- white people trademarked Santa, huh? You`re really going to be sad when white people become the minority in the US (soon, btw) and the non-whites can make all the rules about stuff like this and tell you you HAVE to have a brown Santa and like it.

Jesus was middle-eastern (fact).

Santa Claus, depending on what origin you want to go with (the real Saint Nicholas, the "Coca-Cola Santa", Father Christmas ... well actually they`re all white Europeans I think. Any non-white Santa is simply a re-colored copy of the original, so no, he`s white. If you`re going to just rewrite history to suit your own needs, then we`re taking MLK Jr and Eli Whitney ... you can have Michael Jackson back.

"Santa doesn`t live on the South Pole."

oh, sorry. the mythical man lives in the NORTH pole. Satan lives at the south pole.

What Megyn Kelly said is, funnily enough, only one or two words off from describing the main problem with the entire right-wing conservative group.

Just because it makes you uncomfortable doesn`t mean it CAN`T change.

Everybody is just guessing what Jesus looked like. You`re all using modern definitions to describe ancient people, and it looks bad. Just like calling St. Nicolas Turkish - that`s anachronistic, since Turks didn`t exist. I mean, we`re talking about a time when white people lived in Western China - the Tocharians, and when there were no Bantus in Southern Africa. Everything was different back then.

So he was essentially an Israelite, living in an area with lots of Phoenicians. Babylonians and Persians were there. There were also Greeks and Romans, some Egyptians.

People today from the region may or may not look like those back in the day. But what I do know is that Ralph Nader and Assad probably look more "white" than me. So, really, you`re talking out of your a-hole if you can tell me Jesus` physical features.

Friends don`t let friends ascribe modern ethnic definitions to ancient peoples.

Lauriloo. You keep calling him Turkish. Turkey didn`t exist, Turks didn`t exist. They didn`t come until the Turkic invasions almost a thousand years later. The residents of Anatolia were Greek and Anatolian. Go read about St. Nicolas He is Greek. But even if he weren`t, I wouldn`t consider Dr. Oz to be a different race. I am darker than him.

The Greeks had a long history in Anatolia. Even Troy was in Anatolia. The Greeks were even there p until about 100 years ago when they were the victims of genocide. Go read history.

For The Record: I honestly don`t mind one bit if Santa is shown as being different colours. It`s not like there`s a LAW against it!

For The Record: There`s no rule that says he has to wear red either. He used to be shown in other outfits too.

You want a Black Santa wearing a green outfit?
Cool!
But don`t tell OTHERS they have to have one too!

Typical Leftist Over-Reaction It`s not just IAB Liberal Brigade members, it`s ALL of them! No sense of humour at all.

Santa? I don`t care. White, black, latino, whatever. Doesn`t bother me. Even when people get into the whole "The origin of Santa is based off a man who lived in...", still doesn`t bother me. Our image today of Santa is a made up, commercialized image. So whatever race people apply to him is fine by me, I don`t care.

As far as Jesus goes, I`ve always found it funny how he is portrayed as a brown-haired, light-skinned, blue-eyed Caucasian, what with the fact he was a Jew who grew up in the Middle East and all, so if he were alive today he`d be pretty dark-complected with black hair.

" Santa is Greek/Dutch/and German."

If someone can make him live in the South Pole, ride a magical sleigh and deliver millions of presents in one night, they can make him any color they want. The Santa in the USA looks the way he does because someone in the ad department of Coke said he looks that way (Google it).

Here`s Saint Nicholas. who was in Lycia in Asian Minor which is now Turkey, not Greece. He`s the one that saved 3 little girls from being forced into prostitution by their father by throwing a bag of gold coins into their father`s bedroom window.



In Holland, he was called Sinterklass, still the same Turkish saint.
In Germany, Martin Luther changed to baby Jesus as being the giver of gifts, which is where we get "Christkindl" which later became Kris Kringle. So now it`s mixed Saint Nicholas and baby Jesus.

Smugboy, I`ve never voted for a Republican President. Just because people think Santa Claus is white…because he was invented in Western Europe, doesn`t make them far-right. What policy positions make me far right? GASP, that radical Capitalism? Cause Hitler was far right, and he was a Socialist. Or does that make him left? Get your story together and come back.

Everything else you said was noise, I don`t really have a response for it. But you haven`t actually countered anything anyone said here.

Why is the idea of having an animal -- like the penguin -- as a Christmas icon such an outrageous idea. I wonder if she has a problem with a rabbit that lays eggs as a symbol for the death of Jesus.

You`re amazing, Andrew! I point out a story where someone says something epicly stupid about race (the Santa Claus part--a fictional, customizable, non-historical character in a children`s story) and you make it about me. I point out a story that has racial tensions high all over the country (because, whether you want to believe it or not, we`re not "post" racial) and you say it`s about me? Sounds like YOU`RE the one with the guilty conscience, having found yourself aligned to a party and reactionary ideology that is, by definition, racist.

Or, maybe we`re both a little less one-dimensional than that? I post non-racial stuff all the time. I assume you have other dimensions, too, other than pooting on my posts? But, if we must insist on this whole "us" versus "them" thing, I guess I can play that. Please keep it up. 2014 is just around the corner and it`s important the ultra-right represent themselves clearly. You`re doing a fine job!

Ollie being an idiot yet again. Do you ever open you mouth and NOT have stupid fall out of it?

Since Fox thinks Jesus was white and most Fox viewers eagerly drink the Fox brand koolaid Lauriloo is completely correct.

And that you believe that Jesus was white just cements your single digit IQ ignorance.
To assume there was a white man living anywhere in the middle east during the time of Jesus is about as ignroant as a person can get.

My Iranian friend told me he`s supposed to check "caucasian" on forms so technically middle eastern people are white. But I doubt your average Fox viewer wants to admit their savior is a Jew from the middle east and would look just like the people they hate so much.

Santa was originally based on a man from what is now Turkey. BUT, now he rides in a magical sleigh with flying reindeer so why can`t he be whatever color a kid wants? MSNBC interviewed the author of that article (imagine that, actual reporting instead of four white people yapping) and she said her dad had told her Santa changed his appearance based on the house he was in at the time to reflect the people who lived there. Didn`t really help her when all she saw everywhere was a white guy but he tried to make her feel better.

What`s the controversy here? Jesus was a Jew, and Jews are white. Whether you go for the Greek St. Nicholas or the Dutch St. Nicholas, they were both white, too.

Not all whites are Johnny Winter white. Some are rather dark skinned, e.g., those from southern Europe and southwest Asia.

Fox haters gotta hate, though, and I guess this is the best thing they could come up with this week.

Modwain - St Nicolas was Greek. Turks didn`t exist yet, as any history book will tell you. Turks didn`t arrive in Turkey for another one thousand years or so.

And the merger of the Dutch Sinterklass and the English Father Christmas gives us Santa Claus. The reason he is white is because Western Europe invented him. But the Greek guy he`s based of is…well, Greek. It doesn`t take a rocket scientist.

Smag, that top guy looks white. I actually might be darker than him. But that`s just a guess of what Jesus could look like. They have no idea, but sure….maybe he looked like that. Does that prove anything for your race-obsessed world?

Jesus was Jewish, and he was Mediterranean. I don`t know why you`re being like this. That`s not even my definition, that`s the US Census` definition.

Really, stop being weird about race. Is there ever a minute where race doesn`t cross your mind? Why are you so obsessed it? I mean, really. For real. I would like to know why you have this race obsession.

It`s funny to see most here get all pissy about the appearance of someone they don`t believe existed anyway.
If this bothers you, go argue with history.
And by the way, no Armenian, Jewish, Palestinian, Hebrew, Mexican, or any other race could ever have a "white" appearance to them. It`s just not possible...

To begin with.. santaclaus is a friggin commercial made by teh cocacola company loosely based on Saint Nicolas of Myra, a bishop of mira, a location in Turkey, so.. was he white? NO!
Now, did the cocacola company make him white? nah, they didnt, hell saint nick is white too, still, the same dude though.. then agian, saint nick is not that jolly fat dude that lives on the pole. So why is he white? saint nick is mostly the irish verson of Saint nickolas, which gets celebrated troughout several european countries, including but not limitid to Ireland. (funny fact, saint nick wears green in ireland but everywhere else its red)

Fact of the matter is, both Jesus and Saint nikolas or santaclaus if you want that name, were originally not white at all.. but dominance of the white west changed their color. but then santa as it is now celebrated in the western world is a friggin cocacola commercial, feel free not to buy into it

There is a great deal of doubt. "Jesus" itself is a mistranslation of the name written in the Hebrew texts. So if they found a grave for someone named "Jesus" it sure wasn`t the inspiration of Christianity. Wrong name.

Part of it is a push, since there are all sorts of shades in the U.S., to see Santa be non-white. Or maybe even a penguin, not a human at all. Again, all I can say about it is that if I get presents, I`m happy. :-)

And the people who Santa is based on did not actually live at the North Pole... just FYI.

Why is EVERYTHING about race suddenly?

Joex, Romans and Greeks are white. Arabs, and certainly Jews, are also considered white by the US census.

Seriously guys, would it take a Mexican Santa for you not to be offended? What`s wrong with you?

--
Here is the CRAZY reason why Santa class is depicted as white. Firstly, he is also known as St Nicolas, a Greek saint. Secondly, he comes from Western European cultures, which are (gasp) WHITE!

The modern depiction of Santa Claus as the jolly old man, however, comes from that super white country known as Holland. And that`s why he`s white, it`s no news flash. It`s not racist to have a white Santa. What`s with you guys?

Also, why is "old white man" essentially an epithet?

"Guys, I hate to break this to everyone, but... Santa Claus isn`t real; he`s not any color.

Jesus too."
Actually, HumanAction, the scholarly consensus (including of non-religious historians) is that there was a person named Jesus who lived around that time, and who preached some sort of Messianical religion linked to Judaism. Of course, there is no scholarly agreement that Jesus was God, nor is there any real agreement about exactly what Jesus said or believed, but there is little doubt that Jesus existed and was a religious leader.

There are a few things incorrect or wrong about this video.
1. If you want to be historically accurate, don`t watch Faux News
2. The alleged area that Jesus lived in didn`t have white people. Greeks, Romans, Israelis etc, none of them of white skin color.
3. Santa could actually be white considering the minimal sun exposure in the North Pole.
4. Why the drat were they showing penguins, they live in the south pole
5. Don`t watch Faux News to begin with
