FOX News Anchor Megyn Kelly: Santa and Jesus Were White — VIDEO

Kelly

Megyn Kelly and a FOX News panel discuss a Slate article by Aisha Harris suggesting that it's time for the stereotypical white Santa to get a makeover. Kelly is not going to let that happen, and by the way, Jesus is white too.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

P.S. - How 'bout a gay Santa?

  1. How about a gay Jesus? Whoops, already got that.

  2. If you want to update a story with a superficial change, you are doing your story a disservice. Don't just change Santa's gender, orientation or race as clickbait, create a story that supports your change and explores the possibility you have created.

    So yeah, lets see some black Santa action, maybe something more regional though and not like a Kwanza-bot (ala futurama), but hey, maybe that story would be great.

    One thing is for certain, the "actual" story of Santa is NOTHING, there are some wonderful myths that have been homogenized into our current Santa. You can only go up honestly.

  4. Pig-ignorant and proud of it. You can always rely on Fox "News".

  5. Jesus and Santa are fictional characters so they are whatever colour you want them to me.

    Although seeing as Jesus was an Arab Jew then it seems unlikely to be white.

  6. Yeah, Jesus was the white child of middle eastern parents.

  10. Prove it? Photos that haven't been photoshopped please. Also, Hitler would agree with you Frau Kelly.

  11. Santa was a creation of cartoonist Thomas Nast in the 1870's. Whether you classify middle-easterners as "White" is entirely an exercise in post-hoc labeling.

  12. @MARYM: I am a non believer, but I have read enough history to understand that the man Jesus, who his followers tried to make more important in death than he had been in life, by inventing most of the gospel stories and "miracles", actually lived. However, I don't know what is an Arab Jew. Explain!

  14. Actually Andrew, it's not at all certain that Jesus really ever existed at all. If I had to guess, I would say that he did, but the other side certainly has a valid argument, mostly connected to the fact that there is no written record of the man before at least thirty or so years after his death.

  15. @Zell: What causes you to guess that Jesus actually existed?

  16. Political correctness run amuck. It's out of control.

    PS - Aisha Harris is one of the biggest racists out here.

  17. St. Nicholas was probably pretty brown skinned too since he was supposedly Mediterranean.

  18. Aisha Harris is a joke, and the only subject she seems to be able to write about is faux-"racism."

    Remember when those captive girls were freed in Cleveland after years with that monster, Ariel Castro? Aisha didn't care about that. She cared that the black neighbor who first discovered them was being portrayed in a stereotypical way by the media. Meanwhile, the media were just interviewing him because he was the first person to see these freed women.

    Find a new subject, Aisha. You're a total yawn-fest.

    Zzzzz...zzz...zzzzzzzzz

  19. There is no proof Jesus existed. Modern scholars believe he existed because people in antiquity believe he existed. All of the writing, both biblical and the couple of sources that are not in the Bible and not in Christian scholarship, that describe Jesus as a historical figure were written many years after he supposedly died.

    There is good reason to believe a man named Jesus probably existed, but there isn't real proof.

  20. Oh man! I didn't read that article till now, Penguin Santa is totally the best idea ever. And I for one am running with it, I do a lot of holiday event work and I am going to use Penguin Santa.

  21. I love to gripe about Megyn, but I'd agree with her points. "White" long ago stopped being a synonym for "Anglo-Saxon" or "European white." Most friends I have from the Middle East consider themselves "white" at least as that term has been used in the U.S. The census only recently started to consider an Arab/Persian American category. So as our own government views the matter, Jesus was "white" despite being non-European--at the very least he does not fit any of the other races we recognize. Similarly, St. Nicholas was Turkish originally--another "white" ethnicity as the U.S. would define it. And the post-19th century image of "Santa Claus" is very much Western European and very white in its mythology. Megyn Kelly is in the U.S., and in this country at least Santa and Jesus fit the "white" definition.

  22. Ever wonder how big Fox News' budget for blonde hair dye is? I do.

  23. People's perceptions of white and non-white depend on the environment they grew up in. To me Hispanic people in the US look white, just with Mediterranean colouring. But then I watch a film with say Jennifer Lopez in it (Maid in Manhattan) and she's talking about white people like that means other people. And then in other films (The Wedding Planner) she acts about as "Anglo" as you can get. To be honest, if her last name wasn't Lopez, I probably would never know she's Latina, same goes for Eva Longoria.

  24. Daniel, you should realize that both Jesus and St. Nicholas would have likely been persecuted by racist Americans not very long ago. When Greeks started moving to the U.S., they encountered a great deal of racism. They may be considered and even consider themselves white now, but that has not always been the case. Many Americans still don't consider Greeks to be white, just as they don't consider Jews to be white (regardless of how fair they are).

  25. What, they have run out of cartoon characters to argue about? Truly there is no limit to folly nor apparently to the appetite for it.
