Megyn Kelly said she yanked her two young sons out of their “woke” Upper West Side private school — where a letter allegedly circulated accusing white people of “reveling in state-sanctioned depravity” and comparing white children to “killer cops.”
The offending letter made its rounds among the school’s “diversity group,” which included Kelly and other white parents, following the police-involved death of George Floyd in May, the former Fox news and NBC News host claimed.
“After years of resisting it, we’re going to leave the city,” Kelly said on Monday’s episode of her new podcast, “The Megyn Kelly Show.”
Kelly went on to read directly from the letter written by Nahliah Webber, executive director of the nonprofit Orleans Public Education Network, and posted on a blog titled “If You Really Want to Make a Difference in Black Lives, Change How You Teach White Kids.”
“There is a killer cop sitting in every school where white children learn,” the June 29 post says. “They gleefully soak in their whitewashed history that downplays the holocaust of indigenous native peoples and Africans in the Americas. They happily believe their all-white spaces exist as a matter of personal effort and willingly use violence against black bodies to keep those spaces white.”
Webber continues, “I am tired of white people reveling in their state-sanctioned depravity, snuffing out black life with no consequences. Where’s the urgency for school reform for white kids being indoctrinated in black death and protected from the consequences? Where are the government-sponsored reports looking into how white mothers are raising culturally deprived children who think black death is okay?”
Kelly didn’t identify her sons’ school on the podcast. But she recently spoke about the COVID-19 death of her son’s music teacher, Don Yates — who taught at the Collegiate School, a $55,900-a-year, K-12, all-boys school just off Riverside Boulevard between West 61st and 62nd streets.
Kelly, who has three kids — sons Thatcher and Edward and daughter Yardley — claimed the school wanted the letter circulated “to all the faculty” as well. It’s unclear if that happened.
She acknowledged that while the school’s “far-left” ideology doesn’t jibe with her own “center-left” views, she “didn’t really care.”
But with the letter, she said, “They’ve gone around the bend. They have gone off the deep end.”
Kelly, who said she’s also pulling her daughter out of her school, slammed Webber’s opinions.
“Which boy in my kid’s school is the future killer cop? Is it my boy? Which boy is it?” the journalist asked. “Because I don’t happen to believe that they’re in there.”
The Collegiate School didn’t immediately return messages.
