Fox News Host: Santa and Jesus were Both White Men

Santa and Jesus were Both White Men

On December 11, Megyn Kelly reassured children who were watching her program on Fox News that both Santa Claus and Jesus Christ were white men, despite some liberals trying to turn them black.

On December 10, in her column for Slate, Aisha Harris had written about feeling confused as a child because the Santa in her house had brown skin like her but the Santas on television and in malls always had white skin. She also said that if Santa was to be replaced with an animal, it would save millions of non-white kids the shame and insecurity that she recalls from her own childhood.

As a response to Harris’ column, Kelly said, “For all you kids watching at home, Santa is white. This person is arguing that maybe we should also have a black Santa. But Santa is what he is. Just because he makes you feel uncomfortable doesn't mean he has to change, you know? I mean, Jesus was a white man too. He was a historical figure. That's a verifiable fact, as is Santa - I just want the kids watching to know that.”

As opposed to Kelly’s affirmations, Jesus was actually a Jew of Mediterranean descent and not European or white, as often depicted in movies and paintings.
