Macy’s (M) has a black Santa upon special request for those looking for something different this Christmas.
When making the line for Santa Claus at Macy’s, you can ask to meet with a “special Santa” and they’ll take you to a room to meet a black Santa. All kids have to make the same line and some elves might not know what you’re talking about if you make the request. However, toward the end of the line, Santa’s helpers will take you to another room to see the black Santa if you ask to see him.
The idea of a black Santa was especially controversial when Fox News anchor Megan Kelly said that “Santa is just white.” However, Macy’s appears to disagree as they have a “special Santa” for those who request it.
M stock is up 35% YTD despite posting meager losses the day before Christmas.
