Megyn Kelly is lambasted for saying that Santa is a white person. Imagine that. Who could possibly believe that a white man would deliver Christmas gifts to all the children of the world regardless of race, creed, or color? Apparently the pundits who attacked Megyn cannot believe that Santa Claus is a mythic white person. And apparently the Jew who called himself the son of God, Jesus Christ, is not a Caucasian either. The diabolical white people have just claimed these two are white without really knowing it. They used their privileged status to create two mythic white people who loved everyone. Those damn white people are so inscrutable, aren’t they? What motive could they possibly have to enshrine such goodly traits into a white person?
Oh, I am sorry, some people might think that I intimate that Jesus is a mythic figure. I don’t want to give you that impression. After all, his father was God and his mother was a Jew and Jews are Caucasian but He was a real person in history. I am not going to argue if God is a myth and whether one drop of mythic blood is enough to taint Jesus forever as mythic. I will leave that to others who have more time on their hands.
Now I am certainly concerned that all goodly white mythic figures we know are involved in some evil plot to subjugate the rest of the world. Paul Bunyan might have actually been an giant aborigine from Australia with a blue platypus rather than an ox. Tom Swift, inventor extraordinaire, may have been an Asian kid and not some rich white kid son of a brilliant father. And, of course, Doc Savage, with his formidable skills honed to excellence by a cadre of scientists, may have been some thing other than a white person also.
“For her part, Kelly did invite two African American critics on her show Friday night to address the controversy.
“The insistence that he must be white. That was the thing that turned people off,” political analyst Zerlina Maxwell told Kelly. ““Kids should be able to use their imagination when talking about fictional characters.”
Zerlina Maxwell resembles an idiot when she says “Kids should be able to use their imagination when talking about fictional characters.” Tell that to illustrators of children’s books and see what they say. Imagine the cover of a book with an indistinct, nondescript, human with a sign that says “Insert your own imagination here”. Balderdash.
Uncle Remus was not a black man? Sambo was not a tribal black child? The horror! Imagine an illustrator drawing those two mythic black characters as white or as Chinese! Talk about usurping the very soul of the character. Sheesh! I think we should ask Bill Cosby if Fat Albert and his friends were really black. Perhaps it was just an illustrator who assumed that by the language and character traits that Cosby emphasized.No? Oh.
Santa is a benevolent white man. Get over it. Jesus was a Jew and a real person.
And Megyn Kelly is correct even if others do not wish to believe it.
