    right. it was obviously a joke, which is why in eight pages of defending it with a whole lot of "well, she's right ...." conservatives forgot to mention that she was just kidding.

    This hard-on (pun INtended) you have for all things FOX News is really growing tiresome...

    If only you would put as much effort in exposing the liberal leanings of the rest of the media....


    Nah.. That would never happen.

    Yes, we know, Dave. You don't want anyone criticizing Fox. Too bad.

    O'Reilly wades in. You know, it doesn't matter. But he's white. It's not important, just as long as all agree he's white. I mean, he's white, you know. But it doesn't really matter. As long as we agree ....

    The most interesting part of this "controversy" is the focus of the Left. It was a simple and inane statement by some talking head that, when you look at it closely, was factually correct. Yet, the Left absolutely pounced on it. On this board, we've dedicated at least a 9-page thread to it. I counted an amazing 16 different articles or OpEds on Huffington Post dedicated to Kelly's remarks.

    As Hillary would say, "What difference does it make?"

    Kelly's statement is completely irrelevant -- especially in the light of all the relevant issues happening right now. But, I guess it fits perfectly with the Left's narrative that the Right, Fox News viewers, and Megyn Kelley and her ilk are racists. So, the Left will continue to pounce -- Huffington Post will surely publish another half dozen irrelevant articles about this irrelevant topic.

    They'll just keep constantly and consistently beating the drum; the Right are racist; the Right are racist; the Right are racist.

    Audra McDonald is probably the most decorated and most talented performer on Broadway today. to suggest that she was miscast is inappropriate. I doubt very seriously that the producers gave her race one second of thought when she accepted the role. I do not believe that diversity was the reason she was cast in this role, I am pretty confident that her name/talent is the sole reason she was chosen.

    My goal is to follow Jesus and His teachings rather than engage in meaningless racial and class epithets.

    I think the original Santa(s) were all what we all would call , "white", but I also think we all know that Jesus was a Palestinian or at least one-half there of Jewish religion and not likely very 'white'. I don't think anyone needs to make that an issue. Santaism is not a religion. Poor logic, but very ideologue.

    Why does it matter how someone views Santa or Jesus from an exterior perspective? It's what comes from inside and the love they represent that is important to me.

    You are correct, and Santa loved all the children, just like Jesus.

    Sounds like your exposure to Jewish people is somewhat limited. Neither Ethiopian Jews nor Sephardic Jews consider themselves "white," the former being black and the latter being Hispanic ("white Hispanic?"...I kid, I kid). Ashkenazic Jews are those of European heritage who you identify as the "white" Jews that you only seem to know. And, for the record, the historical split between Sephardic and Ashkenazic Jews happened well after Jesus's death.

    Well, if there was one thing Stalin was known for, it was encouraging lively public debate over cultural matters.

    Should "name/talent" be the "sole reason" for casting a role?

    My quibbling with Audra McDonald's casting in the role has nothing to do with her talents, which I am sure are considerable. It is rather with placing a black woman in the role of the abbess of a Catholic convent in Austria in the 1930's in pre-WWII Austria. It is not realistic. I doubt there were more than a handful of Black people in Austria during those years and the likelihood of finding a black woman in charge of a Catholic monastic institution would have been nigh on to impossible. The casting of Ms McDonald did not conform to the political circumstances of that era and therefore was inappropriate for that reason alone.

    Keep in mind, it was a play, not a movie. I've seen this sort of liberty taken countless times in theatre, far less, on the silver screen, or on TV. Your point is well taken, but in theatre, 'talent' is the thing, and Aubrey McDonald was one of the very few hi-lights of that production, regardless of how much 'suspended disbelief' might be required to get past a black nun in WWII ear Austria.

    It required more 'suspended disbelief' than I could muster, to accept whatever Carry Underwood was doing as acting...much less whatever that clown who looked like one of the Marx Brothers was doing, in the roll of Captian Von Trapp's friend.
