Fox News host Megyn Kelly made news when she insisted that Jesus and Santa Claus are white, which is a silly thing to say for a variety of reasons. What she actually said was “I mean, Jesus was a white man, too. He was a historical figure, that’s a verifiable fact. As is Santa—I just want the kids watching to know that.” Of course, Santa Claus is a fictional character who is based on an early Greek Christian bishop who lived in what is now part of Turkey. We can speculate about his appearance, but he probably looked more like Abdullah Gül than the guy that you see riding a sleigh led by reindeer during Christmastime. Is Abdullah Gül white?

I don’t know, but he’s probably not any whiter than Jesus of Nazareth was. Most likely, Jesus looked like most of the people who live in the Middle East today. Do most of the people in the Middle East today look white?

I don’t know, because standards change. All I can say with reasonable certainty is that Jesus and St. Nicholas probably did not look like they were Chinese.

However, there is at least one strong reason to believe that Santa Claus is white.

Yeah, they make a strong case.
