Uggggggggggh, Fox News. UGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGH.
That’s my only response to the “news” network that seems to think those in a position of power, even fake or magical power, should be white. At least that’s what it sounds like based on this discussion on The Kelly File, where four white people tore down an article by Aisha Harris on Slate entitled “Santa Claus Should Not Be a White Man Anymore.” In the article, Harris states that having Santa be an old white man can make children of color feel like they don’t belong in the tradition of Christmas, making them feel left out and insecure during the holiday seasons. She suggest making Santa Claus a penguin, because if Santa is an animal, then he’s not really any sort of skin color. And who doesn’t love a penguin?
Though I don’t think that Harris’ suggestion is necessarily a good one (though it is adorable), I find the conversation and behavior from these jerkoffs at Fox reprehensible.
Firstly, Jesus was brown, not white. Everyone, let’s get that through your heads first and foremost. Jesus of Nazareth. Nazareth is located in Israel, in the Middle East. If it makes you uncomfortable that the Lord and Savior of the Christian religion was not a white man, then you need some serious re-education. I mean, are you kidding me, Megyn Kelly? Jesus was white? UGGGGGGGGGGH. YOU ARE SO DUMB.
Secondly, who cares if someone wants to make Santa another color other than white? Have you ever seen a black Santa? THEY ARE AWESOME. I wish there were more in those shopping malls, taking pictures with kids, because the magic of Santa doesn’t come from the color of his skin, it comes from the spirit of the season. Kids aren’t going to give a shit what color Santa is, so long as he keeps delivering those presents and wishes. And the landscape of America continues to change, with the minority becoming the majority.
How do you change it? YOU JUST FREAKING CHANGE IT, YOU IDIOTS. I am sure that St. Nicholas wouldn’t mind having his caricature changed if it meant bringing happiness to those who are hurting.
UGGGGGGGGGGGGGH. FOX NEWS. WHY DO I EVEN BOTHER.
If you’ve ever seen a car with a pink, fuzzy mustache on the front of it, chances are you’ve seen a car that drives for Lyft. Lyft is an on-demand ride-sharing service where regular people operate as drivers for a little extra cash on the side and it’s handy because you can find a car in your area just by using the app.
Well, Conan O’Brien decided to try out the new ride-sharing service with his guests Ice Cube and Kevin Hart. The driver, Anthony, has no idea what he’s getting into, but the shenanigans that they all got into will probably make every minute of this ride worthwhile.
Gotta find that weed spot.
Inb4 animal abuuuuuuuuuuse.
I actually used to do this to my ferret all the time. Ferrets love that crinkly sound the bag makes, for some reason and Frederic would go apeshit over it. Bringing in groceries and having a ferret was both the funniest and most terrifying thing to happen during my week.
It’s pretty much like Groundhog Day, but with robots, guns, and a giant battlefield. Like if Groundhog Day mated with The Bourne Identity and then whatever that produced mated with the bastard child of Real Steel.
Starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt. I’ll still probably watch it.
