Fox News anchor declares that 'Jesus and Santa are verifiably white'
Both were Middle Easterners and Middle Easterners are generally white -- though not as white as the Irish or the Poles, of course. St. Nick was what we now would call a Turk and Turks today would be most offended if you said they were not white. The very white lady above has a Turkish name: Aydan Ulugun
Fox News host Megyn Kelly caused controversy last night as she confidently declared that not only is Santa Claus white but Jesus Christ is too.
Despite logic dictating that a man born in the Middle East more than 2,000 years ago would at the very least have been olive-skinned - Kelly announced her asertion that Jesus was white to be fact and 'verifiable'.
While no physical descriptions of Jesus definitively exist, Kelly made her absurd statement during Wednesday's edition of The Kelly File as she discussed a Slate article that suggested a more inclusive Santa for the tens of millions of Americans who are not white.
Kelly said when she saw the piece by Aisha Harris titled, 'Santa Claus Should Not Be a White Man Anymore' she laughed.
'Oh this is so ridiculous,' she said, 'Yet another person claiming it's racist to have a white Santa. You know?'
'And by the way, for all you kids watching at home, Santa just is white,' she added, 'but this person is just arguing that maybe we should also have a black Santa.'
