    Why the racism tag? Just because it happened to black Santa doesn’t mean it was racially motivated. If you notice, he is walking through a predominantly black neighborhood. It is rotten though, whoever the fuck did it.

      One of the kids in the video said “A (inaudible) kid was hanging out the window” I’m pretty sure he said “White” or White Haired” kid but there were several people speaking at once and a prop plane flying over.

      “DC is the most segregated city in the country” and “predominantly black” is a bit of an understatement for Anacostia. And this was at Barry Farm, a massive housing project just north of the intersection of MLK Jr and Malcolm X Aves.
      I can’t think of a worse possible place for a white guy to do something racist.

      • Calypso_1

        DC isn’t even in the top quartile of black/white racial dissimilarity indexing and is ranked 88th among metro populations for segregation based on the most recent census data.

        • Dingbert

          You’re speaking of the DC metro area rather than the District itself.

          DCs population about doubles during the workday due to (mostly white) tourists and commuters from the suburbs. Naturally, they’re working with federal agencies, all located near each other, where white residents are already clustered.

          This really screws up the statistics. And the city.

            The stats are residential only and metro area refers to greater metropolitan area which includes burbs. Commuters & tourists have no impact on the numbers.

          • Dingbert

            Excluding commuters and tourists (as census data does) and including the whole metro area significantly affect a dissimilarity index since it’s based on distributions across an area:

            Washington, DC-MD-VA-WV (Metro) Dissimilarity Index: 66.2
            Washington, DC (City) Dissimilarity Index: 81.5

            Compare to the #1 most segregated metro area (according to white/black measure on censusscope.org):

            Gary, IN (Metro) Dissimilarity Index: 87.9
            Gary, IN (City) Dissimilarity Index: 65

            Anyway, DC may not be the most segregated city in America, but saying it is is a mantra in Anacostia/Southeast. I guess emotion conquers reason when you can see the Capitol building that’s 0% impoverished and 92% white from your neighborhood that’s 50% impoverished and 92% black.

          • Calypso_1

            DC is not the Southeast. I live within walking distance of the 16th St Baptist Church. Emotion/Reason related to the racial divide are living issues in our community like few others.

          • Dingbert

            Southeast is just DC-speak for the Anacostia area.
            I know what you mean, though. Used to live down in Montgomery. I’ve never seen a Klan rally in DC. Wish I could say the same about AL.

          • Calypso_1

            Lived there as well. Montgomery is a horrible place.

    Helter Skelter !

    Whenever I see Black Santa it reminds me of seeing an Aztec Calendar on the back of a Low-Rider surrounded by Mary and Xian Saints… I’m certain I read “Chinga Tu Madre” spray painted on the back of a Aztec Pyramid.

      I frequently find Manson’s words to be interesting. It’s easier to absorb when he’s mellower though.

      • jasonpaulhayes

        He’s guilty of being a lot of things, being mellow and uninteresting are not among them.

        • echar

          I think he got bored of playing into people’s expectations of a monster. Maybe I am wrong, I did notice that he doesn’t act as he used to. I am not an expert on him, so I am ok with being inaccurate with this notice.

            Some Monsters are caged while others run free… “Eclipse the Golden Mirror and the reflection is set free.”

  • Calypso_1

    I’d like to see them try that with Krampus.

  • bohemiangirl

    Yeah, I don’t understand why the word “black” is there either… is it a qualifier? Disclaimer? Inciter? As his race has nothing to do with what happened, it shouldn’t be in the headline.

    • Andrew

      You sound defensive.

      • bohemiangirl

        If you are inferring that I am black, you are wrong. I just disagree with journalists using race to inflame stories.

        • Jin The Ninja

          lol. where in god’s name did you find that ‘inference?’ under a copy of ‘uncle tom’s cabin?’

        • Andrew

          I was inferring that you’re white.

          • bohemiangirl

            Ah, well then you got me. :)
