In the book, the traditional children’s story is turned upside down. Mrs. Claus is replaced by a man who lives with Santa at the North Pole and fills in for him at the malls.
The new story comes from one of the writers of the “Late Night with Stephen Colbert” show, Daniel Kibblesmith, who tweeted last December that he would only tell his future child about the existence of a black Santa. On Tuesday, Kibblesmith announced that the idea was being turned into a book due out before Christmas later this year.
“Me & @JenAshleyWright have decided our future child will only know about Black Santa. If they see a white one we’ll say ‘That’s his husband.’”
Isn’t this a cultural appropriation twofer?
