Sometimes when I say “I’m okay”, what I really want is for someone to hold my hand, look me in the eyes and say “I know that you’re not okay, here is $1000.00”.

The Daily Show Buries Megyn Kelly in Historical Accuracy
[Link to watch the clip for readers outside the U.S.]
So, there was a piece in Slate this week by Aisha Harris, discussing the negative effects of Santa Claus being specifically raced as white on children of color.
Fox New’s Megyn Kelley took a great deal of umbrage at the article and, addressing any children presumably watching, “Santa just is white”. She then went on to state that Jesus was also white, and that his whiteness was a historically verifiable fact.
Another charming addendum, directed at the author of the Slate article: “Just because it makes you uncomfortable, doesn’t mean we have to change it.”
But one of the more interesting parts of the clip involves John Stewart turning to history to verify these claims, and comes up with the same exact images from the Vatican’s reconstruction of Saint Nicholas that I’ve talked about here before:
Apparently such a heavy dose of facts was too much on Kelly, who hasn’t been seen since, and apparently will have to go on the air to specifically address being so very, very wrong in front of so many people.
Jessica Williams of the Daily show also weighed in on this during the bit with some biting and dead accurate commentary.
A swarthy Turkish Santa would make people very uncomfortable—oh, wait no, Megyn said if I feel uncomfortable, there’s no need to change it. If white people feel uncomfortable, then we have to change it, and then pretend it’s the way it’s always been,” Williams added. “First you fix history, then you lock that s—t down. Forever. In a vault. Sorry, Santa’s not black just because some blogger wishes he was, just like Megyn’s not black just because she spells her name creatively.
I’m starting to wonder if someone at the Daily Show reads this blog.
