Santa Claus was a black man. How did he become white?

I saw the original portrait of Santa Claus and he looked like a black man with a weird forehead. How did he become a white man in modern times?

    Are you sure he's a black man and not a Klingon?

    Santa Claus derives from Saint Nickolous, canonized after death of Bishop Nickolous of Smyrna in Asia Minor- now western Turkey/Anatolia region- who was known for giving little gifts to poor around time of solstice especially- one gift was gold coin that could be used as dowery for poor girls so they could get married, have decent life at the time when very few choices to unmarried women- mainly prostitution. Asia Minor/Greek and Anatolian residents would have dark skin from sun, would be sort of 'black man' bu would NOT have African facial features  Another interesting point is sometimes known as patron saint of prostitutes. Roman church adaption of Eastern Orthodox history

    Santa is an anagram for Satan.  He is also called "Saint Nick."  But go to Webster's Dictionary, and look up "Old Nick."  Santa Claus is also bisexual.  After all, "Santa" is the Spanish word for a female saint (i.e., Santa Maria, Santa Monica, Santa Clara, etc.); yet "Claus" is a German boy's name!  How does that strike you?

    He didn't become white.  Santa is always whatever colour he's always been when he puts the magic suit on.

    You know what's really wild?  99% of kids don't care what colour Santa's skin is when they meet him.  A few dozen shopping malls have tried Santas of different skin tones, and the kids didn't even notice.  Or maybe they just didn't care.  As long as he's got the suit, the hat and the beard, that's good enough.

    He bleached his skin and changed his ugly facial features.

    The original Saint Nicholas was a Greek! He MAY have had darker skin than the typical European "white" man, but he was definitely NOT of African heritage.
