  1. Should have never intergated in a burning house. MLK spoke the truth. The avarage white american never wanted black americans to be part of a nation black americans partially build and created the wealth for the usa to be the usa today. History have shown that when black americans tried to be part of society in full essence. Whites bullied them, killed them, burned them alive, lynched them, economically margenalised them, disqualified them from universities especially ivy leagues ones. White labour unions doing everything to get black labourers out of the way because they where cheaper. Whites never said hey we are all americans led build this nation togheter lets make it it the best ….no they said lets get jim crow, segragation and lets call our ''fellow'' americans the N word all day. In the 1960,70,80 allow asians in and then call them the ''model minority'' and tell blacks hey why are guys not like the east asians they work hard, study hard and do their best………….really ? you know as a asian myself i dont like how america never tells and teaches the truth about the usa and that it was thanks to the american blacks most non-white immigrants could come here in the first place in mass nummbers……real shame.

  2. The fact that she was arguing and was so devastated like she was gonna have mental breakdown over Santa not being white ..her talking about racism .😳😳😳😳

  3. It was the Republican president Dwight David Eisenhower who sent in the troops to protect those seven students. It was the Democrat governor of Arkansas who supported apartheid and non-integration. I was around 13 at the time and recall seeing this unfold on television newscasts.

  4. Megan Kelly is a racist and a liar. I will never forget how you purposely inspired racist attacks with race baiting, calling black protesters thugs, saying that all Muslims are terrorists and inciting people to commit hate crimes all over this nation. You and the rest of the propagandist at fox, both past and present, are covered in blood from all of the attacks and murders caused by your words. You cant hide from your past and who you really are. NBC are trying to normalize these people but DON'T LET THEM. DON'T WATCH ANY SHOW KELLY OR ANYONE WHO THINKS LIKE HER IS ON. SHAME!!!!!!

  5. Why would any self-respecting black person go on any talk show of Megyn Kelly's, or of any Fox News Republican Racist, to make them feel good about themselves. These modern day racists are perpetuating the same racism that they always knew and loved from way back then. I like the part where Mrs Melba Patillo Beals says that she didn't realize that they were that primitive.

  6. Just read the book "Warriors Don't Cry" by Ms. Melba Patillo Beals and I am at awe at the courage of the Nine Warriors and how they triumphed over the barbarity of those "people". Real Superheroes.

  7. It' amazing that Ms. Beals maintained such a positive attitude and sense of humor through such an ordeal. She never gave up. A true American hero.

  8. Was never a Megyn Kelly fan, but I've watched several clips from her show. Why? Because they covered some of the most amazing people with amazing stories! Why did NBC wait for her to decide to do this, and why haven't they continued now that she's gone? She wasn't a match for these heartfelt, meaningful, beautiful stories. She lacked the knowledge, empathy, honesty, and humanity to connect to the people, the stories. Genuineness isn't her wheelhouse.

  9. I’m reading her book “Warriors don’t cry”. It’s such an incredible book and such a sad part of our history that we must always remember

  10. And what has changed since then to now?? white America has not changed much at all even to this very present day

  11. Megyn Kelly I AM SHOOK!! After her arguing over Santa "not being white" !!! Makes me a little uncomfortable because I don't believe she truley understands where these heros came from and the amazing changes they made!
    But Megyn argued over a fictional character's skin color 😑…

  12. First of all, i dont care what you feel about Megyn kelly, but what you wont do is disrespect this woman.Because of Dr.Beals and what she and the Little Rock 9 endured, Black children in the South got to eventually attend any high school of their choice.have you ever had acid thrown in your eyes? Had burning strips of notebook paper throw at you while trying to use the bathroom?having to turn the other cheek while being hit and kicked every single day because your survival and those around you literally depended on it?The future of Black children (and other children of color) depended on it.Yall "faux-woke" folks wouldnt last a day in any person's shoes who grew up during the Civil Rights Movement.This woman is 77 years old sharing her story.Before you judge her over a tv show she is on, read her books Warriors Don't Cry, Freedom is a State of Mind, and I Will Not Fear and then tell me about respecting one self.

  13. Thank you for being so smart and survivor GLORY to God AMEN 💙💚 💛♥️🙏🤞✌️👍 glory to God AMEN
