Neal Boortz, who was guest hosting the Herman Cain radio show today, told his audience that the fictional character Santa Claus is white.
Boortz was defending Fox News host Megyn Kelly who made the same claim last week.
According to Buzzfeed.com, Boortz also said he was going to “scream and complain because Martin Luther King is always portrayed as black” (audio below).
However, Martin Luther King was an actual living person, not a fictional character like Kris Kringle.
“Yeah, I’m sorry, Santa Claus is white!” claimed Boortz. “Okay? Deal with it!”
“That's it, everything has got to be black now, it doesn’t matter what it is,” a caller into the radio show complained, reports RawStory.com.
“You know, I’m going to scream and complain because Martin Luther King is always portrayed as black,” added Boortz. “It just ain’t right.”
