Independent journalist Megyn Kelly has announced that she pulled her two young boys out of their “woke” Upper West Side private school in New York City after officials circulated a letter blasting whites.
The former Fox News and NBC News host said the offensive letter was distributed among the school’s “diversity group” which included Kelly, her husband, and other white parents, after the police-linked death of George Floyd in May.
In part, the letter accused white people of “reveling in state-sanctioned depravity” and said some white children were set to become “killer cops” someday.
Kelly, who recently founded Devil May Care Media, read parts of the letter during a recent podcast of “The Megan Kelly Show,” in which she said the school’s left-wing ideology did not appeal to her but that she “didn’t really care” before.

“After years of resisting it, we’re going to leave the city,” Kelly said on Monday’s episode.
“The schools have always been far-left, which doesn’t align with my own ideology, but I didn’t really care, most of my friends are liberals, it’s fine. I come from a Democrat family, I’m not offended at all by the ideology, and I lean center-left on some things.”
However, she indicated the letter went far over the line.
“This summer in the wake of George Floyd, they circulated amongst the diversity group – which includes white parents like us, there are people who want to be allies and stay attuned to what we can do – an article, and afterward they recirculated it and wanted every member of the faculty to read it,” she said.
Kelly read directly from the letter, which she said was written by Nahliah Webber, the executive director of the nonprofit organization Orleans Public Education Network. The letter was posted online and 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.”
“I am tired of white people reveling in their state-sanctioned depravity, snuffing out black life with no consequences,” Webber continued. “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?”
It’s not clear that the letter was actually circulated to all of the faculty at the school, which is believed to be the Collegiate School near Riverside Boulevard in New York City.
“They’ve gone around the bend. They have gone off the deep end,” Kelly said in criticizing Webber and the fact that her letter was circulated in the first place.
“Which boy in my kid’s school is the future killer cop? Is it my boy? Which boy is it?” Kelly asked on her show. “Because I don’t happen to believe that they’re in there.”
