I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the tree tops glisten
And children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all
Your Christmases be white

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know

Where the tree tops glisten
And children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases
May all your Christmases
May all your Christmases
May all your Christmases be white

I'm dreaming of a white
Christmas with you
Jingle Bells
All the way, all the way

    How could White Christmas be racist? It's clearly about snow because Christmas is in winter and in winter it snows and snow is white. No matter what your race is, if you think this song is racist, you are the racist one. I am sick of people making themselves victims of every situation. If you have seen the movie that this song originates from, you will know that the main characters went to Vermont for the snow and were upset when there was none. Know what you're talking about before you make yourself look stupid.

    Thant's rediculous to even think that "white christmas" is implying a racial descrimination. Meaning behind the word "white" in this song clearly and without any hidden pretence is addressed towards the snow.

    Don't be a drip. They are trying to imply the fact that there was always snow, it has nothing to do with black people. How the hell does "just like the ones i used to know" portray anything to do with an apartheid? It means, when we always got snow on christmas. In addition, not to be rude, as i have many friends who are "black" but, i can bet that you are not black. I know many people who would say this, just to attract attention. I can also bet that you are around 13-14. Suprise, suprise, but so am i

    Obviously, this song is not racist. Back in the day, there was snow falling on the ground, during christmas, and obviously, that's what it's talking about. I mean, who wouldn't dream of having a white christmas.?
