Follow Up: Megyn Kelly Responds to White Santa Comments …..

calling them “tongue-in-cheek” while accusing those who reacted negatively to her statements as “race baiting.”

ARVE Error: no id set

The Webster’s Definition of Race-baiting: “the unfair use of statements about race to try to influence the actions or attitudes of a particular group of people.”  Call me crazy, but wasn’t Megyn Kelly’s segment race-baiting?  It seemed like the purpose of the segment was to put its “core audience” on notice that some people want to change the identity of Santa Claus.  My understanding is that race-baiting doesn’t always refer to influencing minorities, but can also refer to influencing the majority.  I guess Webster needs to amend its definition.  Apparently, the new definition of race-baiting is “any time you point out that a conservative talking head/leader is using race as a fear tactic.”
