Journalist Megyn Kelly announced that she will be removing her children from their schools and moving out of New York City following an anti-white letter that circulated through school faculty.
“After years of resisting it, we’re going to leave the city,” she said during Monday’s podcast of “The Megyn Kelly Show.”
A letter written by Nahliah Webber, the executive director of the nonprofit Orleans Public Education Network, circulated through the faculty and “diversity group” at the private school that Kelly’s two young sons attend.
The letter alleged that “White school districts across the country” are filled with “future killer cops.”
“The schools have always been far-left,” Kelly said, “which doesn’t align with my own ideology, but I didn’t really care, most of my friends are liberals, it’s fine. I come from a Democrat family. I’m not offended at all by the ideology, and I lean center-left on some things.”
But the letter, she said, was a step too far.
“They’ve gone around the bend. They have gone off the deep end.”
The letter, titled “If You Really Want to Make a Difference in Black Lives, Change How You Teach White Kids”, was posted to a blog on June 29th in response to the police-involved killing of George Floyd.
In the letter, Webber argues that educational systems must begin targeting white children for re-education instead of blaming black deaths on any weaknesses or failings within the black community.
“The system that killed George Floyd and the system that raised and educated the cop who killed him are the same,” reads the letter. “And in the same way that folks are tired of the viral Black death-protest-fake trial-acquittal-rinse and repeat cycle, I am tired of folks acting like there’s no direct connection between the schools where White children sit and the street corners where they choke out Black life.”
“There’s a George Floyd in every school where Black children learn,” Webber wrote. “…And there’s a killer cop sitting in every school where White children learn.
“I’m tired of White people reveling in their state-sanctioned depravity,” she continued, “snuffing out Black life with no consequences and then having the nerve to tell Black children that they are ‘behind’ and need to work harder.”
The solution, she recommended, was to have the federal government send in anti-racist white people to dismantle racism within white neighborhoods and school districts.
“Because that’s where the problem is – with White children being raised from infancy to violate Black bodies with no remorse or accountability.”
Kelly, a former Fox News and NBC News host, did not take kindly to the circulation of the letter:
“Which boy in my kid’s school is the future killer cop?” she asked. “Is it my boy? Which boy is it? Because I don’t happen to believe that they’re in there.”
Kelly has two sons and one daughter. She plans to pull all three of them from the schools they are attending in the Upper West Side and move out of New York City.
