    These folks should read the book "The Shack" where God the Father is potrayed as an African American woman. There is a reason for that but I'm not telling. :ninja: ;) Youwill have to read the book if you want to know.

    If Santa Claus really does slide down chimneys, it doesn't matter what color he started out as. He's going to end up black - really black.

    Just an observation.

    I've seen clips of Ms. Kelly before. Like most TV talking heads, she didn't get the job for her intelligence.

    But... But... All the illustrations I've seen of them, ranging from such diverse backgrounds as western European artists all the way to the American offspring of western Europeans have consistently portrayed them as looking, well, western European!

    I liked how she framed the debate by insisting she was right, but they will still pay lip service to other opinions.

    Just Googled her. She's an attorney. They don't hand law degrees out to idiots (even if I do think what she said is silly).

    That being said, whenever this argument comes up, I simply think to myself WHO CARES??????? The conversation was started by Kelly reporting on some black woman who got all butt hurt by white Santas all over the place. The version of Santa portrayed today is a FICTIONAL CHARACTER! There is NOONE who ACTUALLY slides down chimneys and delivers presents. If you are so uncomfortable with YOURSELF that you get all bent out of shape because your skin is not the same color as the poster of Santa on the wall at K-Mart then you are in really sad shape. Both sides.... anyone who even feels the need to TAKE a side...... even HAVING an opinion on what color Santa is... is...... well...... just STUPID.

    As for Jesus, again, WHO CARES????? He could have been orange and still would have been perfect. Paint him as Middle Eastern. I simply don't care. Heck, make him look like George Clinton. I STILL don't care. Whatever makes your whiny little butt feel better. Even if you are not religious I think you can agree that even the concept of Jesus is beyond color. So make him black as coal. Who cares? Make him a HER (while that would be factually inaccurate) I STILL don't care. What he did and stood for (same for Santa) is what's important.

    Crying on both sides over NOTHING. Just NOTHING.
