Teacher disciplined for 'Santa is white' remark

It's fine with me if black people portray Santa, Jesus, Angels, Peter rabbit or whoever as being black, [of course Uncle Remus was definitely black.] I've seen all of them as white, black, brown , yellow and red. So what difference does it make, what color, as long as they are there for our kids ?   SO.....reprimanded..YES...disciplined...NO

  ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A New Mexico high school teacher has been disciplined after a parent says the man told his black son that Santa Claus is white.

Officials at the school in Rio Rancho, about 15 miles north of Albuquerque, said Saturday that the teacher recently was disciplined for his comments to the student, but they declined to say how.

The move came after students at Cleveland High School were told they could come to class dressed as Santa, an elf or a reindeer.

Michael Rougier told KOB-TV his ninth-grade son, Christopher, arrived wearing a Santa hat and beard, and the teacher asked the boy: "Don't you know Santa Clause is white? Why are you wearing that?"

The teacher's name was not released           .READ STORY   But then...these are High School kids, so why were they dressing as Santa, Elf or Reindeer ?
