Comedy is the best way to get a tragic point across and Kenan Thompson does it very well here. Hello Megyn Kelly and all the racists at Fox News.
Megyn Kelly is Racist? Well it's Fox News, isn't it.

This is just disturbing on so many levels. Here you have a black woman who states she was uncomfortable as a child with a white Santa Clause and feeling like she didn't belong and this ratchet "reporter" Megyn Kelly states Santa Clause is white "for all the kids watching." What a rotten piece of work. People should be able to worship the way they want to. This is what is called racism folks.
