Set The Tree On Fire: Some College Students Think The Song 'White Christmas' Is Racist

As political correctness settles into college campuses, MRCTV’s Dan Joseph decided to launch his own faux campaign to make Christmas more inclusive to all peoples. He ventured onto George Mason University's campus to collect signatures in support of radio stations banning the song “White Christmas” because…it’s racist.

“White supremacy is everywhere, even in your holiday songs,” said Joseph sarcastically as he looked to solicit the support of the school’s social justice warriors around GMU’s free speech zone. “Help stop ‘White Christmas,’ what could be more racist than ‘White Christmas?’” he added.

As a student was signing the petition, Joseph told her that he liked “racially ambiguous Christmases.”

One student was not having any of Dan’s PC nonsense and told him that he doesn’t think the song is all that bad. Joseph told him he needed to check his privilege. Another student wanted to know more about Dan, or the organization he works for, before lending his name in support.

“No problem,” said Joseph. “We come from a place that’s totally out there.”

“It sounds understandable; it makes sense,” said another student as she reached for his clipboard to sign the petition. Joseph then told them Bing Crosby, who sang the song, actually came out against it, saying it was “inappropriate,” and that Black Lives Matter.

Crosby died in 1977.
