Okay so I’m calling for Megyn Kelly’s job after this!
Watch the Video of Megyn Kelly’s panel discussing the Article by Aisha Harris…
“The anchor, who had an all-white lineup on her news analysis show, cleared up any misgivings that culture blogger Aisha Harris may have created with an article in Slate that explained the duality she faced seeing a white Santa as a child and a black Santa in her home.” – The Root
“Just because it makes you feel uncomfortable doesn’t mean it has to change. You know, I mean, Jesus was a white man, too. But you know it’s like we have—he was a historical figure, I mean that’s a verifiable fact. As is Santa. I just want the kids watching to know that.” – Megyn Kelly
Two little problems…
One: Santa is FAKE ,so his race and face can be changed altered to include all children. Why not make him an animal or blue from being cold in the north pole so long????
Two: Jesus was NOT white and that can be historically proven (Kelly says it can be historically proven that he was white, well FOX News needs to give her some extra time off so she can spend it in a history class)
See this article in The Atlantic “Insisting Jesus Was White Is Bad History and Bad Theology”
Problem 2.5: If things to not change because they make us uncomfortable then why do we change? The British made us uncomfortable so we changed, Jim Crow made us uncomfortable so it changed, lack of gay rights made us uncomfortable so it changed… Something being uncomfortable is a sign that it is not right and in fact needs to change. Being exclusionary is uncomfortable which is why we need to change.
The producer needs a stern talking to that let this story air and Fox News needs to get rid of Kelly. It is also important to note that this is not a bash Megyn Kelly moment because I’m sure many agree with her (ever flawed) logic. It is a moment to show the state of this “post-racial” country.
If you feel that way, fine but don’t go on national tv and voice your ignorance.
