Santa is what we want him to be

Santa Claus is white. That’s what they say. So is Frosty the Snowman, but I digress.

Thus continues the annual holiday slow-news-day battle of the ethnically sensitive. It’s another episode in the mostly meaningless fight against political correctness. It’s all over the Internet. It fills newspaper columns and air time. It gives commentators something on which to comment. That’s especially valuable in this festive season when the news is mostly a snooze. After we mention that it is cold, that shoppers shop, that Congress is soon to adjourn, we can argue about the appropriate ethnicity for a completely fictional character whose image has been amended thousands and thousands of times over a millennia. Thanks Fox News.
