Megyn Kelly still says Santa Claus is white but now agrees that Jesus may not be

Megyn Kelly of the Fox News channel stirred the nation this past week when she said Santa Claus and Jesus are both white. On Friday night, Kelly returned to her show for the first time since making the remarks, according to a TV Guide report on Saturday, and she went after her critics who blasted her for the comments.

She said that the entire incident about her calling Santa Claus and Jesus white people would be funny if it weren’t so telling about our society. She accused her critics of having a kneejerk reaction to race bait. She insists that her comments weren’t motivated by any racial fear – even though many of her critics are claiming she’s a racist for having made the comments.

Kelly says that her controversial comments were inspired an article written by Aisha Harris – a writer for “Slate.” Kelly says she invited the "Slate" writer on Friday night’s program, but the writer chose not to come on the air with Kelly. To that, Kelly said, “Apparently that web site would rather sling those arrows from their offices.”

And as far as Kelly having not been on the air on Thursday night, she said her absence was due to a cold – nothing else.

In the aftermath of the controversy over Kelly’s remarks, she still insists that Santa Claus is white. She falls back on “Miracle on 34th Street” and Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade as her support for that assertion. However, regarding Jesus being white, she said that she has learned in the past couple of days that the debate over Jesus' race is an issue that is far from settled.
