"Fox News commentator Megyn Kelly isn’t the only one who believes in a “white Christmas.”
A teacher in New Mexico has been disciplined for telling a black student dressed as Santa Claus that Father Christmas is Caucasian.
“Don’t you know Santa Claus is white?” the teacher reportedly asked. “Why are you wearing that?”
Students at Cleveland High School in Rio Rancho, N.M., were allowed to dress as Santa, elves or reindeer. When ninth-grader Christopher Rougier arrived wearing a white beard and red Santa cap, the teacher ridiculed him, the boy’s father, Michael Rougier, told KOB-TV.
School officials in Rio Rancho said the teacher admits making a “dumb” mistake and apologized to Rougier’s family.
Officials wouldn’t specify what punishment the unnamed teacher would face.
Rougier is still angry.
“Whether this teacher felt Christopher may have been wearing this out of context, there's no room for it,” he said. “There's just no room for it.” [Source]
Is a "dumb mistake" what we are calling openly humiliating a 9th grader with racist statements by those in positions of authority these days?
Sadly, it looks like FOX News is winning their war on Christmas, one racist at a time.
