In response to a Slate article entitled, "Santa Claus Should Not Be a White Man Anymore", Fox News' Megyn Kelly hosted a discussion about the "whiteness" of Santa Claus on her show Thursday.

While also discussing the proposal made by the article's author, Aisha Harris, an African-American, to make Santa Claus a penguin instead, Kelly asserts to both adult and kids viewers alike that "Jesus was a white man, too. He was a historical figure. That's a verifiable fact -- as is Santa."

On Friday, Kelly issued an apology of sorts on her show "The Kelly File," saying that both she and Fox News are often "big targets for many people," because the network she works for is so powerful.

You can watch both of Kelly's remarks below.
