The thing is Santa is supposed to be a character do you not think the kiddies will notice if Santa became chinese or black or a woman or maybe a thin
Also why do people find the need to change characters race? He has to be some race is he is a character. Without a character Santa would not be real
enough for any films or christmas stuff.
You do realise that saint Nicholas was a real guy and partly santa is about him. What is we made a film and said Robert Johnson was white. We had a
white guy playing him, are you saying that nobody would complain.
Sants is white he also is fat, and lives in the North pole.
I don't live in the north pole, should I complain that Santa should be english?
Instead why not create a different character based around a good black man. Create a character based around Nelson Mandella. Just proceed as you do
with a magical creation. You idealise him, add fantasy, add plenty of information from folktales from africa; which there are many and what do you
Mandella or whatever name you give him:
A character who spent time imprisoned in a magical prison, and when he got out wanted to make the world better for small children by giving gifts and
feeding the poor.
# I could write a whole book about the above created magical character if I though enough people would read about a black good magical character from
a white guy.
