    When Mall of America announced that they would be hiring a black Santa this year, many people welcomed the change while others did not.

    Mall of America has hired Larry Jefferson, who is a retired U.S. Army veteran from Texas to work at the mall for four days.

    The comments concerning black Santa on the Minneapolis Star-Tribune website got so bad that they shut down their comment section for the article.


    “Looks like we had to turn comments off on story about Mall of America’s first black Santa. Merry Christmas everyone!” Scott Gillespie, the editorial editor said.

    Other articles comment sections around the web, as well as social media, have also been buzzing with people and their outrage over the mall hiring a Santa that wasn’t white.

    Some have even gone so far as to call for a boycott. One of those people is Peter Morgan of CBS Minnesota. He wrote, “Stupid. Incredibly stupid. Santa is WHITE. BOYCOTT Mall of America. Maybe they should change their name to MALL of RAGHEAD LAND.”

    Well when it comes to change, it's difficult to accept at first. But I like this : "many people welcomed the change…"

    Meh, Satan uhh I mean Santa is their creation anyway. I gives a.

    White folks are an angry bunch to begin with, they are always looking to be outraged about something. The more trivial it is the better to get their collective underoos in a bunch.
