University Of Northwestern St. Paul Refuses to Host Conservative Star Parker

On Monday, Young Americans for Freedom published an article outlining the details of University Of Northwestern St. Paul’s abrupt decision to end plans for conservative Star Parker to come speak for their campus’ club.  Apparently they thought it would cause too much controversy to have this speaker come share her thoughts on race and culture in today’s society.  Star is the founder of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education.

Mall of America finally has a black Santa

Great news the Mall of America finally has a black Santa. It know being praised as an accomplishment like being anastronaut or something like getting the fields prize in mathematics.

Dozens of Santas cycle through Twin Cities shopping centers each year, spreading joy to children who entrust them with their holiday wish lists. What has been missing from that experience, some parents say, was a Kriss Kringle who represented a wider swath of believers.

This week, for the first time in the Mall of America’s 24-year history, a black Santa will greet families for annual Christmas photos.

“This is a long time coming,” said Landon Luther, co-owner of the Santa Experience, which has run the intimate photo studio at the mall for 10 years. “We want Santa to be for everyone, period.”

The mall offers a free, wait-in-line-with-the-masses Santa, as well as the book-an-appointment Santa Experience, which this year added a second location at the Bloomington megamall. The appointments require purchase of a photo package.

Luther started a national search last spring for a diverse St. Nicholas that kids of color would be able to relate to. Santa Sid, a 20-year veteran at MOA, finally found one while at a Santa convention in Branson, Mo., where nearly 1,000 impersonators convened for a “Kringle family reunion” in July.
