Too Little, Too Late Megyn Kelly

There is a shameful history of blackface in American culture.

Earlier this week, Megyn Kelly made some rather controversial comments in regards to blackface when it comes to dressing up for Halloween.

As of earlier today, her show is likely cancelled and her contract with NBC is likely to be nullified.

I am not African-American, but I am a part of a minority group. The pain of being stereotyped and dehumanized for someone else’s entertainment when you do not have the power to respond and/or protest is a feeling that I would wish on no one.

While I would not wish anyone to be fired from their job, in this case, I believe that cancelling the show and firing it’s star is the right way to go.  Racism and discrimination in 2018 should be a thing of the past. Unfortunately, Megyn Kelly’s comments proved that once again, both are alive and well in America.
