News personality Megyn Kelly announced on her podcast that "after years of resisting it," she and her husband were pulling their sons from an Upper West Side private school. The decision was prompted by a letter that was circulated among parents following the death of George Floyd in May that compared white children to future killer cops.
The letter was written by a woman named Nahliah Webber, who is employed as the executive director of a nonprofit called Orleans Public Education Network. It appeared in a full blog post entitled, "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 letter reads. "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.
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?"
Though Kelly did not mention her sons' school by name, previous podcasts have indicated it is Collegiate School, a K-12 all boys school.
The former Fox and NBC News personality said that though she never agreed with the school's "far-left" ideology, it was the letter, which the school allegedly wanted circulated to all faculty, that finalized her decision.
"Which boy in my kid's school is the future killer cop?" Kelly asked rhetorically. "Is it my boy? Which boy is it? Because I don't happen to believe that they're in there."
