Racism and conceit for the holidays. Megyn Kelly declares on TV that Santa and Jesus are white. My anus cannot generate enough shit to respond to this properly.
"For all you kids watching at home, Santa just is white. But this person is maybe just arguing that we should also have a black Santa. But, you know, Santa is what he is, and just so you know, we’re just debating this because someone wrote about it, kids."
But Jesus was from Bethlehem, he was Arabic, and okay The Santa myth pops up all over the world we can draw him however we want. Our current Santa was invented by Coca-cola in the 1940’s for their Christmas advertising. I mean I doubt the features we get in that Santa come from Greece, because historical St. Nicholas came from Greece, he was an Archbishop who gave money to families who couldn’t afford to marry off their daughters.
Actually Santa’s modern American design was invented by cartoonist Thomas Nast for a newspaper, adapted from Germanic folklore. Coca Cola used the design later on. But it’s irrelevant, he’s a fictional holiday mascot and can be designed however the fuck people want him to be, white, black, or any other ethnicity. It doesn’t matter because he’s not a real person.
This my friends, is a masterpiece of a movie. Three homeless people, A runaway teen, a alcoholic father, and an ageing trans woman, are wandering the streets on Christmas eve, when they find a baby abandoned in a dump. They decide to care for it, while they wander around trying to find her mother, meeting several oddballs on their way.
