Al Sharpton Urges Santa Boycott!

Last Christmas season, we at XIV Foundation created a special version of “Twas the Night Before Christmas”. I hope you get a chuckle out of it and that you and your family have the warmest of holidays!


Twas the night before Christmas
at the North Pole toy shop,
Santa’s attorney’s were puzzling over a letter they got.
Al Sharpton demanded, through certified mail
that Santa’s list policy change what it entails.

No more should children be judged naughty or nice, whatever the case
But gifts be determined through gender, ethnicity and race.
“Affirmative Action gifting” must be St. Nick’s new mantra,
Or Sharpton would organize a boycott of Santa.

“Balderdash” bellowed Santa, “let that nut case sue,”
“No race hustling con artist tells me what to do.”
“Each child will be considered based on their actions and merit.”
“No preferences, discrimination or bias! I won’t bear it!”

“Boys and girls will be judged on their individual actions,”
“I’ll never treat children like competing race factions.”
“All children are equal in their value and soul.”
“Reply back to Sharpton with a stocking full of coal!”
May the New Year bring us all closer to the dream of equality for all! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
