Mall of America Shoppers Threaten Boycott After Mall Hires Black Santa

santa-550x363A slew of bigoted shoppers at the trendy Mall of America in Minnesota are threatening to boycott after the mall hired its first black Santa Claus for 4 days.

Readers sounded off in the comments section of the Minneapolis newspaper. Many of the comments revealed the racism that divided this country in post-Obama America.

The reaction was so vociferous that the newspaper was forced to shut down the comments section.

“Looks like we had to turn comments off on story about Mall of America’s first black Santa. Merry Christmas everyone!” an editor wrote.

A report on a CBS Minnesota website that was inundated with racist and vile comments was also shut down.

This poor Santa, looks like he may be out of his seasonal gig.

I’m giving away a few of my favorite things …Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


The Christmas season is the grand finale to the end of another year and with the holidays upon us, some of us shop right up until the last-minute for that special gift.

With each passing year there’s always one product or merchandise that winds up on my list of favorite things. This year one of the items which made my list is the bath and body products by Arbonne International.

I’m a dye-heart all around proactive body wash and facial user but must admit, the products that I’ve purchased from Arbonne have me sold out for their goodness and I’m hooked thus far!

Arbonne takes care of the whole man, not just with their exhilarating bath and body products but they provide nutritional supplements and detoxing essentials as well.

Their products are a bit pricey however well worth the dollar in making wonderful gift ideas this holiday season.

The bath and body sets pictured above are the Ginger Citrus Luxury Gift Set and the Awaken Bath and Shower Gel, which includes, the Awaken Sea Salt Scrub, the Awaken Body Lotion and not pictured is the Awaken massage oil.

When I tell you these products not only smell divine but they will leave a lasting aroma in your shower and on your sheets to relax you completely.

And two (one male and one female), of my lucky Ceo blog readers will win this set which is for both, men and women as one of my ‘favorite things’ giveaway. All you have to do is tell me: What have you done for someone to make a difference in their lives this year?

Then join me tonight at 8:00 PM on “Conversations Of A Sistah” via “Conversations Live” as I sound off live for this year with my special guest Ann Marie Pusterla, District Manager and Independent Consultant with Arbonne International. Her web address is Email: P: 646-280-7740

This Independent Consultant and mother of three boys believe: the key to her success was the desire to make a change in her life and having a love for the products she adamantly sells.

Ann Marie is not only true to her craft but she quoted the following:

I fell in love with the products the moment I started using them and decided that I would like to represent pure, safe, beneficial products.  Arbonne products are botanically based and do not include any chemicals.  Once you begin to use their products you too will fall in love with the results, the change in your skin and the feeling of being renewed.

I will also be giving away copies of both my books and ReadyWriter Production Company’s Respect Yourself wristbands. If you’re aim is to win our “Respect Yourself” wristband, please tell me how you will inspire the campaign with our message?

The Reason For The Season…Is Christmas commercialized?


Jesus is the real reason for the Christmas season, yet we get all caught up in the price tag of gifts, the gift giving, the crowded stores, shopping and the excitement this season bring. But do we pause to give thanks? Thanks for family, friends, life, health, strength and all things being possible.

Do we realize that Christmas is a celebration of the birth of Christ? Christ was born because God had an ultimate plan for man. Do we realize that He (Jesus Christ) was the real gift to man?

Join me this Thursday December 20th at 8:00 PM on “Conversations Of A Sistah” on “Conversations Live” for my last show of the year, where I will expound on the topic: “Is Christmas commercialized?”.

You can send us your emails at: and tell us if you “keep Christ” in Christmas?
