The majority of the pictures we see of Santa Claus involve a happy white man, white facial hair, rosy cheeks etc. Rarely are we exposed to a Chris Kringle of a different race. Even shopping malls drop the ball. The Macy's on 34th street in New York have multirace Santas' available but you have to jump through hella hoops to get "the Santa that looks like you"
In order to create some head elf diversity and restore her nieces' belief in the possibility of a multicultural Claus Amber Ravenel created the Black Santa App.
released just in time for the for the 2017 holiday season. Black Santa, released by The Ravenel Agency, allows users to receive a video message directly from Santa. This is ideal for children who are unable to see Santa in person or may need some more time with Mr. Claus. It’s the perfect way to get into the Christmas spirit and entertain loved ones. -Huffigton Post
The app is currently available on Apple for 2.99
