well, you have to be dutch to know the origin of the black helper. Once it was a believe that naughty kids were taken by Santa. The kids would become Santa's helpers. Santa brings the santa presents via the roof and chimney. Here is where the black comes in. The helpers had to go down the chimney to put the presents in the shoes of kids, and climb back through the chimney. In the chimney you will get black even if you are as white as me. So this has nothing to do with racism

Cheers

Or am I missing something?

Blackface. It's extremely racist, horrific, and downright disgusting. Do you know anything about mistral shows?

If you have the time, I suggest you watch this movie. It's called Bamboozeled.

edit: I commented without actually watching the video bc I am at work, but I'm gonna leave this comment here because I'm pretty sure the black-face portion of it is just as offensive as the story behind it.

Santa is racist against dwarfs.

Ahh, see. Dwarfism is not a race. It's a genetic disorder. He would be prejudice against dwarfs, not racist against them.

Too many sensitive people in this world imo, you only give people power if you give a sh*t.

Stop caring and see how much bothers you.
