Is Santa Claus racist

Monday, December 21, 2015 by admiralWillyWilber | Discussion: Humor

I realised for centuries that Santa Claus didn't bring all those native Americans in the Americas presents on Christmas eve. Why would he do this if he's not racists.

Of course he's racist.... never ever left presents for my Alfa Centauri friends around the corner, nor my friends from Venus a block over.

I mean, does Santa Even Visit Mars, Saturn or Pluto?  Neptune even?

Hmmm, wonder what he'd do for Uranus?

What about the Easter Bunny? Also what about the religious thing? Is Santa Christian? I suppose he is so that means if a kid is Jewish, or any other religion, no Santa.

None of those things applies in Japan: http://muza-chan.net/japan/index.php/blog/christmas-in-japan

Would it interest you to know that Christmas originally was based upon a pagan ritual celebrating the winter solstice. Many of those pagan beliefs were modified to suit the rise of Christianity. Much better for understanding IMO. Not to get into a discussion on religion which is verbotten. 

Santa Clause does his thing in many different ways for many different people. The only problem he's got is with those chimneys. What happens if he gets stuck.

According to old story's of Joulupuki /Father Christmas, would not have the issue of getting stuck, since of his size.
It is displayed in the movie "a christmas carol" with Jim Carrey aswell. 
According to the Storys Joulupuki was a giant creature that was able to change size and his servants or minions, delivered the packages or presents on rare occasions he personaly showed up.

Yule goat: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yule_Goat
which even demanded gifts.

In Germany they have a dude called "Knecht Ruprecht" the guy that would beat you with a stick if you´ve been naughty and then there is the tale of the "Weihnachtsmann".

You have inverted 'clauses'...but gratefully, not 'Clauses'.

1. Correct: "I realised  that for centuries, Santa Claus didn't bring all those native Americans in the Americas presents on Christmas eve. Why would he do this if he's not racists."

2. Should be 'Native Americans', not 'native Americans'. The latter would include all Americans born in the U.S.A. The former (your intent) would be the descendents of those peoples who crossed over the Bering land bridge. Also, in this context, the "Native Americans born in America" is superfluous, unless you meant "native (and Native) Americans born abroad" which would have been stylistically and grammatically better.

3. 

Why would he do this if he's not racists.

Not 'racists', 'racist'. Although quite "large", Santa Claus is singular, not plural.

4. Merry Christmas, and a very happy, healthy and grammatically correct new year!

I've seen dozens of them in one place at one time...so he's definitely plural....

There is only one true Santa Claus: Ask NORAD, if you don't believe me...and I was using "homophonic license".

Bullshit!  I saw the old bastard bouncing 'lovelies' on his knee with a dirty looking twinkle in his eye.

And shame on those young women for encouraging him.... and one in particular, whose neckline plunged so low it revealed her navel.

Yeah, well, I know what Santa was ho, ho, hoing about... he thought all his Christmases had come at once.

Quoting Fuzzy Logic,

BOLLOCKS, BOLLOCKS and double BOLLOCKS!!!!

Had the Brits not sent their best fighting men to other climes [India, Africa, etc] history 'd be telling a different story.  That's right, it'd be Father fechin' Christmas, and the White House 'd be a limestone dull grey.

More to the point, tea would be the national drink [rather than that other stuff] and you'd all be wearing trousers, not pants.

I don't think that was coal, but a lead ball. If it matters they were Hessians German mercenaries.
