  1. This Peter Morgan of CBS sounds like Megyn Kelly of FOX who in 2013 said Santa and Jesus were both white. CNN pointed out that the real St. Nick was originally Greek, which at the time was one nation with Turkey under the Ottoman Empire, and therefore mostly likely had a medium-to-dark brown complexion like the Turks. While Jonathan Merritt wrote in The Atlantic (Dec. 12, 2013) that the “…scholarly consensus is that Jesus was, like most first-century Jews, probably a dark-skinned man.If he were taking a red-eye flight from San Fran to NYC today, Jesus might be profiled for additional screening by TSA.” But the best response came from comedian Jon Stewart who asked Megyn, “… who are you actually talking to? Children who are sophisticated enough to be watching a news channel at 10 o’clock at night, yet innocent enough to still believe Santa Claus is real – yet racist enough to be freaked out if he isn’t white?” I love the chocolate Santa!!
