Black Santa Gets Shot in the ‘Hood

“You’ll shoot your eye out!”

Well, maybe not so much. This video was able to, within two minutes, sum up all of our favorite Christmas elements (charity, Santa Claus, toys, and pellet-guns), and turn them into an advertisement of everything that is pretty much wrong with modern society. The African-American man dressed as Santa, was shot twice in the back while being filmed by a local ABC network news-station affiliate, and was later treated at the hospital to remove the pellets. The shooter took aim from a second-story apartment window, but no suspects have been found as of yet. It’s easy to laugh at the video upon first viewing, but the slapstick-comedic element melts off quickly, and doesn’t stick like a first snowing, and leaves us with the harsh, cold reality of “What’s wrong with people these days?”
