Darius Rucker (formerly of Hootie and the Blowfish) is a brilliant singer/musician who has become a country music star in recent years.
Earlier this week he was asked to sing “White Christmas” at the annual tree lighting festivities in New York City.
I find it ironic that Darius Rucker would sing White Christmas

Apparently, if you are African-American, it is now wrong to use the word “white” in any context. It’s almost as if the Internet peanut gallery had no idea that the song “White Christmas” is about snow… and not white people. This is really getting to be too much, isn’t it?
Anyway, I personally thought that Rucker’s performance of the song was fun and festive. He just released a Christmas album back in October (and yes, “White Christmas” is one of the songs on the album) and I highly recommend it, if you like Christmas music! You can find the album at Amazon.com!
