    1. Imagine still being a racist in 2021. And also being upset about a fictional character is beyond sad.

    2. Hate to break it to you but st Nicholas was Turkish and would have had very dark skin more dark then white Santa lol

  1. What explanation do you give most children who have always known/believe Santa is/as white? Not a racist asking, just wondering. Also curious as to why Disney always caters to the minority in regards to race/sexual/wokeness of park attendees. Anyone who goes to Disney knows that mostly white people and people from other countries make up the majority.

    1. “…Disney always caters to the minority in regards to race/sexual/wokeness of park attendees” LOL are you on drugs? What about 1951- the early 2000’s where Disney catered to exclusively to middle/upper middle class white people exclusively? But yes keep crying about “catering to the minority”. This comment section is embarassing

  2. Santa is magic. He can be whatever race or ethnicity he wants to be. I’d like to think he even changes it to match each country he visits along his yearly route.
