Megyn Kelly Determined to Keep Jesus and Santa White

Megyn Kelly

Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly isn't comfortable with the idea of a Black Santa and wants to make a few things clear, especially to kids: Santa Claus is White and so was Jesus. 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. Harris' position is that as the cultural makeup of society has changed, it is time for an all-inclusive Santa.

Sounds good, right?

When one her panelists tried to defend the jolly-White-man makeover. Kelly had heard enough. "By the way, for you kids watching at home, Santa just is White." But Kelly wasn't done there. Since she was already wound up about Santa's racial identity, she figured she'd add Jesus to the fray.

"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."
