Black Santa Shot With Pellet Gun During Christmas Toy Drive

An African-American man trying to spread cheer by dressing as Santa Claus at a toy giveaway on Christmas Eve was shot with a pellet gun. The man was shot twice in the back at Berry Farm and was transported to a local hospital to have the pellets removed. “I’m glad just I got hit and no one else got got hurt,” said Xavier Hawkins, who made a full recovery. The man had been giving out toys to needy children every Christmas for the last eight years.

A photographer at the scene said that he was interviewing the man for an article as he was giving away toys to kids. But midway through the interview, Santa began screaming in pain. “Somebody just shot me!” Santa yelled. “Something in my back. Ahh! Ahh! My back! Oh!” After he was transported to the hospital, a “Grinch” character filled in to finish the toy drive.

Of course, Hawkins’ presence refutes the beliefs of Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly that Santa Claus can only be white. The TV host shocked and amused viewers by telling them earlier this month that Santa Claus “just is white” and that this was a “verifiable fact.” She later slammed liberal media outlets, including The Daily Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live, for taking her quotes out of context and said that they were clearly done in satire.

    too bad,there are double standards in this society,the darker you are the worse you are treated by the “supremists”.

    Unbelievable – I have learned that my parents were actually “Santa” – this means that every parent, regardless of color or ethnic background, is Santa to their children and to many other children. Why must the Faux News haters perpetuate the evil that is out there? Is this country so lost that we continue to tolerate this madness?

    Many in this society do not seem to
    realize how very great this Country is, these United States of American!!!

    Too many do not seem to realize how very
    blessed we are to live here in this wonderful Nation, as opposed to many other
    Countries where they have to fight to be able to have enough to eat and fresh
    drinking water, and so many other bad things that people in other Countries
    have to survive everyday!!!

    If the Color of a Man’s Skin is all
    you have to concern yourselves with, then you have no worries, only a problem
    with your maturity and lack of self-esteem!!!

    Your rights stop where mine begin and
    vice versa; we have no right to infringe on others’ rights!!!

    Living and let live is something that
    we all should subscribe to, and we should count our blessings daily!!!
