This Christmas: Barack Obama and Black Santa

Oh, what I wouldn't give for a photo-op of brother Santa with the Obamas.

Everybody's talking about Obama delivering on diversity for his White House staff. And by everybody talking about it, I mean this one article I read over on That Minority Thing.

 

And while Obama's staff being the most diverse ever is all fine and good, this holiday season there's only one area in which I really want to see some diversity from Obama: I want him to bring a black Santa around for his two lovely daughters.

Oh, what I wouldn't give for a photo-op of brother Santa with the Obamas. That's it. That's all. No commentary, no declarations. No speechifying about the iconography of the event. Just a picture of the Obama family carrying on as if black Santa were as normal as night following day, as eggs for breakfast, which, for a lot of families such as my own, having black Santa come around for the holiday is the height of normality.
