‘Tis the season to be… Racially stereotyping?

Social media erupted after a controversial statement made by Fox News reader Megyn Kelly over the race of iconic Christmas “character” Santa Claus and Jesus.

News readers say the darndest things.

News Limited is reporting the comments came about during a discussion over the suggestion that Santa should develop a more “inclusive” image for people who aren’t “white”.

The article in question was titled, “Santa Claus should not be a white man anymore”, to which Kelly laughed.

“Oh this is so ridiculous, yet another person claiming it’s racist to have a white Santa, you know?” She reportedly stated.

“And by the way, for all you kids watching at home, Santa just is white,” she continued.

“But this person is just arguing that maybe we should also have a black Santa.”

“Just because it makes you feel uncomfortable, doesn’t mean it has to change. Jesus was a white man, too.”

Rant not over.

Apparently Kelly continued on-air by discussing the facts of Jesus Christ’s ethnicity.

“Jesus was a white man, too. It’s like we have, he’s a historical figure that’s a verifiable fact, as is Santa, I just want kids to know that”

AHHH Make it STOP!

The article Kelly discusses comes to the resolution that society should not change Santa’s race, but instead, make Santa a penguin.

Perhaps this could have been the conclusion before the rant… Because Kelly is now extremely unpopular.

Moral of the story: keep your opinions for the dinner table, not national TV.
