Megyn Kelly: "Every Significant Historical Figure Has Been White."

Any truth to this?

Megyn Kelly of Fox News is at it again. Just last week she faced a public backlash when she announced that both Santa and Jesus were white. She tried to backtrack on the comment after many late night comedians used her as fodder for their shows, pointing out that one, Santa isn’t real and the historical figure he is based on Saint Nicholas was Turkish and likely brown skinned and two, that Jesus was Middle Eastern and also brown skinned. She claimed on her next show that it was all just a joke but her true colors came out on last night’s show when the cameras turned off but her mic was still on.

The panel which included Bernard Whitman, a Democratic strategist, Arthur Aidala, a legal analyst for Fox and Monica Crowley, a conservative commentator had just finished a heated debated about the suspension of Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson for making anti-gay comments. They argued about 1st amendment rights.

When the segment concluded Whitman asked Kelly if she thought her erroneous comments about Santa and Jesus would fall under protected speech. That’s when everything went horribly wrong for Kelly. Not realizing her mic was still on and she was being recorded, she announced that she stood by her statements and thought it was ridiculous that she had to apologize. She continued stating, “Look, every significant historical figure has been white.”

Whitman was understandably shocked and countered with, “What about Gandhi?” Kelley fired back, “He was obviously white. Everyone knows that.” Aidala and Crowley agreed with Megyn’s analysis. Whitman shot back again with a list of influential figures, “Martin Luther King, Mandela, Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman, Cleopatra.” Her response sent Whitman storming out of the studio. “I said significant. None of those people are significant.”

No word yet about how Fox News is going to handle this situation. If those in charge run true to form Kelly will likely get a bonus.

I've got to admit, I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about here. Even if it were true, and I've got no real reason to dispute that it is, that's still a far ****ing cry from what Megyn Kelly's audience is hearing.

Still, I'd love a link about what you're talking about. Sounds interesting.
I just figured she meant that Jesus was on the Mayflower. Which . . . of course . .

I'll explain. I stumbled across this story and went through an odd mental process. It was something like this:

What? No way. She can't be that stupid. I've heard her speak and she didn't appear to be this stupid. She did do that Santa/Jesus thing. That was stupid. But...no...this is ridiculous. Come on. I'll paste it into Google and see what happens. OK, these sites look like bullshit that I've never paid attention to before. This can't be true...can it?

It was a surreal moment. She is what I consider to be a major media personality and I was actually weighing the possibility for a bit. It was a bizarre moment. So I decided to share that moment.

I'm pretty sure that's what just about everything not versed in physical anthropology is thinking. Kelly included.

As they say, if you don't pass History, you are doomed to repeat it next semester.

The whole idea of races is actually pretty silly and mostly based on some seriously arbitrary cranial features. But it is what it is. You have 3 choices. Negroid, Caucasoid and Mongoloid. Are you proposing that Jesus was one of the other choices? Are you Mormon?

(the Mormon joke has to do with Native Americans.. which are Mongoloid last I checked.)
It's gone beyond that though. You can apply Negroid/Caucasoid/Mongoloid as a basis, but you can use any other basis you want for "race" really.

I could use a lawnboy. I'm horrible at landscaping. Just laziness on my part.

The truth is, we don't know what color Jesus was. We. Don't. Know.

He could honestly have been a black dude, or European white, or anything in between. We don't know. Nor, honestly, should we ****ing care about Christ's skin tone.

It's likely that his skin tone was the color of most everybody else in that region of the worlds, which is hardly what we all commonly refer to as white.

But we don't know. And anybody arguing that we do, is either blatantly ignorant or knowingly perpetrating racial propaganda.

I understand. I surely would have stopped to read the story. I'm just saying it wasn't "good" satire. It should "seem" kind of real, but so ridiculous that it couldn't possibly be. As you said, that someone on Fox might have said this is actually plausible. It's hard to a good parody of the right-winger shows because they are already so ridiculous. Stephen Colbert is great at it though.

We do know he had a hog to satisfy a slattern Marey Magdelen, though. That has to say something.
