Last week, Fox News host Megyn Kelly was appalled that some students in Arizona schools read books that called non-Latinos “gringos,” comparing the term to the N-word in her story about the Arizona ethnic studies ban.

“Referring to white people as ‘gringos’ — is that appropriate? What if these texts referred to black people as the ‘N-word?’”

“Uhhh whaaaaaaaat ARE youuu talking abouuuuuuuuuut Megyn Kelly?” was my first reaction.
