A family in the United States received a racist message full of hatred after putting a black inflatable Santa Claus in their front yard prior to the holidays.
The Christmas decorations in Chris Kennedy’s garden in North Little Rock, Arkansas, also had a sign that read, “In this house we believe: black lives matter, women’s rights are human rights, no human is illegal, science is real, love is love, kindness is everything. “
Chris said he was shocked when he received a letter slamming Black Santa at his home in North Little Rock, Arkansas.
He hanged Santa on November 1 and said his neighbor’s letter made him “extremely angry”.
By sharing the letter on Facebook, which contained a file photo of a white Santa in a red and white outfit, the letter called him the “laughing stock” of the neighborhood.
It said, “Please remove your n *** o Santa decoration.
“Don’t try to trick kids into believing I’m an asshole.
“I’m a white (white man, for you) and have been for 600 years.
“Being jealous of my race is no excuse for your dishonesty.
“Besides, you make yourself a laughing stock of the neighborhood.”
It also urged Kennedy to move to another neighborhood with the “rest of your racist kind” and told him to take down Santa Claus.
The letter added, “Obviously your values are not those of the Lakewood area and you may need to move to an East neighborhood with the rest of your racist kind.
He shared what had happened on Facebook and received an outpouring of support from his neighbors, some of whom have made it a point to visit Kennedy.
A supporter drove past the house while TV station KARK filmed and shouted, “We love you black Santa!”
Another said, “We just drove out of Sherwood to let you know that I hope and pray that you don’t bring him down because kids around here need him.”
Chris told the TV show that the decoration is what “Christmas is all about” and said he will not bring down Santa.
He said, “The kids love it, and that’s what Christmas is about, it’s about children.”
An investigation has been launched to try to determine who sent the message.
