I really wish the media "thought leaders" would stick to arguing about the race of a character like Santa Claus than informing those of us who know better of the physical appearance of Jesus.
Juan Williams Says Jesus Was Likely ‘Oriental Asian’ or a ‘Moor’
Yeah, Jesus is allowed to be of any ethnic group on Earth except, you know, that of 1st century Semites. I've often encountered an unease with modern Israel by contemporary media members, but it shouldn't be retroactive to 2000 years ago. It's okay, Jesus can be a Jew. If it makes a "thought leader" feel better, he was also a Palestinian.
By the way, if we have to argue about the race of Santa [and only is this diseased and cacatopic age would we have to], I'll simply point out that his model, St. Nicholas, was Greek.
