Jefferson said, “It gives kids from Minnesota a Santa who looks like them, but, frankly, kids love Santa no matter what color you are. I just want to share the Christmas spirit and spread the love during this holiday season.” He mentioned that his Santa line is filled with kids from different backgrounds.
After writing an article about the Black Santa on the Minneapolis Star Tribune they had to turn off their comments. Under the story were a bunch of racist and mean comments. Jefferson said, “These people were online bullies with their hateful, racist comments. I ignore them because we’re hearing so many positive observations.” He even had one woman cry because she always wanted to see a Black Santa.
