Did anybody watch WWE Raw yesterday? Mark Henry was Santa!

 

 

You realize you lost all credibility with the question, right?

I did not find any credibility with the whining in the original story to begin with, so that is fair. ;)

 

Yes I do occasionally watch WWE. I look at it the way it is, though. I know it is a glorified male soap opera and that is fine with me. I keep it separate from the real sports I watch such as MMA and American football.

omg, when are these firestorms going to end?? First, I have to disagree with the school. If a black student wanted to play Santa, let them play Santa..

 

 

With that said, all of that other news about Fox News saying Santa was white during an off hand comment that was not suppose to mean anything, got blown way of proportion. This country is too damn sensitive. 

"This country is too damn sensitive"

 

Right on, to you whole post and especially that last line!! :)

 

Although the teacher was pretty much an idiot for saying that!

Blown outta proportion because the race card sells. Next... some autistic person walks into the school as Santa. As an observant black kid, Mutombu Johnson says that Santa can't be a tard. The next day he gets shot by a white kid whose dad has a swastika tattoo he got when drunk in highschool. He gets 50yrs in prison, sentenced by a mexican judge and a chinese jury. The next day a pakistani bomber blows up the prison.

 

Hottest week ever. ONLY ON FOX.

We had this similar crap a few years back, with the Milky Bar kid and a brown kid not getting the part.

 

When I was a child, it was a Caucasian child that did the ad with specs and freckles.

 

That was the 70's, then the 80's and the middle 90's.

 

A mother wanted her child to do it.

 

He is brown.

 

The producer is an arse and declared the child has to be white as th chocolate is white.

 

Well all I can say is say that to the Caucasian male that delivers milk tray.

 

Or all the whiteys at the posh party eating brown chocolate wrapped up in gold paper named Ferraro Roche I think is the name.

 

Santa can have any skin colour he wants, I bet when he goes to Rio for his holidays he comes back as black as Newgates Knocker.

"This situation involves a teacher recently hired by Cleveland High who made -- and admits he made -- a stupid mistake," the director said. "The remark was inappropriate and should not have been made. The teacher feels very badly about what occurred. He self-reported the incident to the principal and has apologized to the student and to the student's parent. Appropriate disciplinary action has been taken."

 

Enough said? Why is this news? The guy realised he made a silly mistake, reported it himself and has been disciplined for goodness sake. 

 

Mountain out of a molehill springs to mind! 

 

I've never seen Santa portrayed as a black guy, so I can see where the teacher is coming from. It's just good sense that a character should be played by an actor of a same or similar race. You wouldn't see Nelson Mandela played by a white guy or George Bush played by a black guy. Nothing racist about it. 

 

His only mistake was voicing such an opinion in this pathetic can't-say-anything-without-offending-someone day and age.
