There already are, and isn't the female Santa Mrs.Claus?

Apparently the idea got a lot of hate in response to this meaningful, but clearly intended to introduce a bit of levity also, article a few years years ago:

http://www.slate.com/articles/life/holidays/2013/12/santa_claus_an_old_white_man_not_anymore_meet_santa_the_penguin_a_new_christmas.html

I think multiple and diverse representations of Santa are a good idea.

Well, given that St Nicholas wasn't even white to begin with.

Though I am amused you put the topic in spoilers.

Pretty much this. I grew up seeing Santas of all different ethnicities. I've never heard of anybody having a problem with poc being santas in, say, that Will Ferrell.

People still take picture with santa clause now a day no ? how about providing more choices ? I have no interesting in taking a picture with some guy with a beard that is for sure.

but these Santa clauses... $10 a picture ?? they will make plenty of profit with this. Host it at some anime convention center or something

I'm with qwueri. I can imagine folks pretending to be super progressive or whatever by demanding something that has already been done for decades. That's certainly one way to stir the shit-pot and try and take credit for the actions of other people at the same time.
