Meet Sinta klaas-Santa or Satan? (2500 hits)

Every year at this time I post this blog.
With the economy being what it is...he's more like Satan!
Gifts? You are the gift!
Our children are happy when we are happy and whole.
No toy on earth can compare to how valuable the gift of love is.

Here is just a little history nonetheless, the damage was done a long... time ago so don't blame me!

For those of us who have relatives who still sing soul-injected Christmas carols and dream about a "White Christmas", try shocking them out of their fantasy world by starting a conversation around the dinner table about Santa's little slave helper, Black Pete.
Pete was an Ethiopian slave (a Moor from Spain).
The story of Santa, aka Sinta Klaas was born in Europe. Originally, Klaas had a whole slave ship of "helpers" who were made to do all the dirty work, like keeping the naughty and nice list up to date, climbing down all the filthy chimneys to put lumps of coal in the kids' stockings and whip them when they were bad. They were also required to help him deliver gifts. People wouldn't expect him to do all the work himself! European parents to this day, tell their kids, "better be good, or Black Pete will come and get you and take you off to Spain".
The legend is celebrated in parts of Europe, ( notably Holland and Spain) each year.
As usual the sizable Black population do not seem to protest this display as far as I can tell.
Google Sinta, the truth will set you free!
Well, one truth anyway.
Year after year, we continue to buy into this whole scene.
African Americans go in hock more over the holidays than any race in America. Can we imagine if we took this money and put it toward our own businesses to create our own jobs, how much more we could give our children and their children?

No, we can't!

We love everybody but ourselves!
All this foolishness is going to come to a halt one day soon and thats the only time reality is going to set in.
We are brainwashed to the point that we wouldn't know the truth if it was right in front of us.
Which it is.

Thanks Sis, have a jolly merry every moment and second of the day!
