When the Mall of America announced that it would be welcoming its first black Santa Claus, many hailed it as a good thing with a quiet nod of approval has they moved about their day. But it appears so many did not quite approve according to Scott Gillespie of the Star Tribune.
Scott found the need to turn online comments off in the Star Tribune article about the Santa.
Racists are taking their emboldened bigotry to many other outlets, however, hurling epithets at the Santa as well as African-Americans in general across the internet over Mall of America’s choice for Santa.
Forcing White Ethnicity On A Patron Saint From Turkey All Over Mall Of America’s Black Santa
According to The St. Nicholas Center:
The true story of Santa Claus begins with Nicholas, who was born during the third century in the village of Patara. At the time the area was Greek and is now on the southern coast of Turkey. His wealthy parents, who raised him to be a devout Christian, died in an epidemic while Nicholas was still young. Obeying Jesus’ words to “sell what you own and give the money to the poor,” Nicholas used his whole inheritance to assist the needy, the sick, and the suffering. He dedicated his life to serving God and was made Bishop of Myra while still a young man. Bishop Nicholas became known throughout the land for his generosity to those in need, his love for children, and his concern for sailors and ships.
So plainly Santa is a white American patriot that loves guns and untethered free market capitalism. Even Megyn Kelly thinks so as she exposed on a Fox News panel 3 years ago.
What’s truly horrendous is the level of depravity some of these people can stoop to. Just a look at this sampling from Rawstory:

Brad, a guy claiming to believe in the constitution (whatever that means) and the principles of the Founding Fathers, had this to say:
@CNN Oh boy racial racist identity politics reporting from CNN. Only you racist leftist types actually care.

It seems nobody really cared that much except the bigots that felt their white fragility being disturbed ever so slightly at a more historically accurate portrayal of what St. Nicholas may have actually looked like.
