The purpose of this book is to reveal the truth respecting who Santa Claus was and the roots of this Christmas tradition. According to conservatives, he is a white, big-bellied and long-bearded man. They insist that he along with Jesus Christ, God, and all of the disciples are white like themselves. Christianity, from their perspective is a white religion. They are blessed and the just inheritors of morality, wealth and privilege. Therefore, the 84 percent of the world's population and the rising minority - majority of people of color are the unjust and unworthy. At best, these people of color could become "the Servants of the Servants of God." This perspective is false, xenophobic (fear of dark strangers), ethnocentric, racist and hegemonic. The truth about who these most holy figures are revealed. Contrary to convention, they were neither Nordic, Northern European or Aryan like the ruling class of the West. The conquerors that are losing their grip on the majority of the world's population still control the media and movies that present themselves as the holiest and most just figures. This perception upholds the fading psychological control of people of color. It reinforces the "divide and conquer" mentality, the Stockholm syndrome of empathy for the oppressors and the inferiority complex among the conquered. In addition, it justifies discriminatory treatment, denial of subsistence, excessive criminalization, and death by police or vigilantes, incarceration, denial of educational resources and opportunities vital to social mobility for people of color. The real Santa Claus is revealed along with the relevance in terms of ethnocentrism and hegemony. It delves into the controversy raised by Aisha Harris' penguin argument versus Fox hosts white supremacy claim over Santa Claus and all biblical figures. Then the book turns to the real life and legacy of Saint Nicholas. In doing so, results of forensic recreation are revealed regarding whether the traditional figure was as it appears today in the West. Clearly, the original Santa Claus was a gift-giver that was imprisoned and tortured for promoting Christianity. The book reveals that Christmas as we practice it today constitutes a pagan worship of a false idol with little to do with Christian tradition. It has been turned by a corporate transformation into the year's greatest marketing and retail opportunity. The idolatry of money is prevalent. Commercialism and consumer overconsumption is perused as its minions. Reverend Talen's work and documentary film "What Jesus Would Buy?" against the true "War on Christmas" is explained. Instead of launching a "War on Commercialism" most conservatives are blaming liberals for the mitigation of religion from the Christmas season. They are competing for sponsor dollars from the corporations that have secularized and commercialized America's Christmas for maximum profits and returns. Pope Francis intervenes and uses his pointed message to redirect Christians from avarice to providing assistance to the poor, needy and sick according to Jesus' message. The book provides evidence that the biblical Hebrews were people of color and ancestors to Sub-Saharan Africans and African-Americans. It refers to biblical references and descriptions of prophets, disciples, authors of the Bible, martyrs and early church leaders including popes and saints. Africa in the ancient world was not confined to land below the Sahara desert; it consisted of the entire continent to the Mediterranean Sea and the subcontinent of Asia Minor and all of the original holy lands of the Middle East to Ganges River. While Nordic tribes lurked in barbarism, Africans were masters of the civilized world, religion and the roots of all western learning and invention. The foundation and origin of Christianity were developed on the African continent and spread to its subcontinent, including Palestine and ancient Israel.
