Inkster has a large display of a Santa with a darker skin color than that presented by Clement Moore in his famous poem "The Night before Christmas". If you dig back in history, you'll find that the origin of St Nicolas is Turkey, which would make sense that his skin pigment is not white. But in our imaginations, Santa can represent whatever ethnic background we want him to match. We love the one in Inkster. It catches our eye.
