Kramer Posted October 28, 2018 Share Posted October 28, 2018 In a panel discussion about Halloween costumes on Tuesday, the NBC host Megyn Kelly wondered aloud why blackface would be a bad choice for white people. "What is racist?" she asked, posing one of the most ill-advised rhetorical questions ever. The next day there were reports that she was likely toast at NBC. Kelly apologized. Too late, wrote Roxanne Jones. The former Fox host "fell into the trap ensnaring a lot of undercover bigots in America today. ... They think they can redefine the meaning of racism by arguing that they don't believe in being PC -- which to me means that they want to be free to deny the humanity and equality of others who are not like them." By Friday, NBC had dropped Kelly's morning show. But Kelly didn't get a fair shake at NBC, wrote Joe Concha in The Hill. She "never seemed particularly welcome nor given a true chance to succeed." In the end, NBC chair Andy Lack "threw Kelly under the bus when things got inconvenient." Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
