Overheard at the Water Cooler
Tania: So Judith, what do you think about the controversy on Fox News?
Judith: What controversy?
Tania: That Santa Claus is White and not Black….
Judith: Isn’t Santa Claus White? How do you connect a Black man with the North Pole?
Tania: Well, what about African-American North Pole Explorer Matthew Henson? Wasn’t he the first man to reach the North Pole? And what about the Jamaican Musher Newton Marshall who competed in the Iditarod in Alaska?
Judith: Waste of time! We, Blacks, are too sensitive. Santa Claus isn’t even real. Soon we are going to argue that Donald Duck is Black, too. All I know is if I should see a Black Santa or a White Santa climbing down my chimney, me and him claat….
Tania: As for me, Santa can climb down my chimney on New Year’s Eve as long as he brings lots of presents for me.
Judith: Hahahahahaha! You are, too, rude.
