You’re both wrong. Aisha for starting a stupid discussion “Santa Claus Should Not Be a White Man Anymore” Here.
Harris wrote: “So let’s ditch Santa the old white man altogether,”. Do we need to be reminded that there are black people?
If Aisha gets her way, will she decide to change the race of Nelson Mandela to fit her paradigm that race should agree with the viewer? Would she insist Santa be gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, transgender or androgynous to , perhaps, satisfy her whims about sexual identity?
Megyn Kelly is wrong in a small way but she gets the win for sticking to her idea that Santa is white. He is. The wrong part is to miss the idea that black people can assign a different color, race, religion or politics to whom so ever they want. The wrong for Megyn is the idea that there can be justice everywhere. Most of us live with lots of wrongs done against us. Good for Megyn for noticing Aisha and speaking out.
Santa was based on the life of Saint Nicholas, a real man, probably Greek or Turkish but Aisha dreamed up a penguin to replace her idea that Santa not only should not be white, he should not be human.
If Aisha’s father told her Santa is Black because she felt “insecurity and shame, he twisted the narrative and did it for the worst of reasons, – black guilt and he passed that on to Aisha. Instead of ripping apart history, her father should have pointed to the massive success’s of black people, many against overwhelming barriers and happily the battle to accept Black Americans into America is over.
Aisha is black and she should be proud of it instead of trying to tear down whites in some sort of crusade thinking that will make blacks better or even worse that it will make whites worse. Truth is, it will do neither.

*BTW, the list above could easily be much longer but it seemed long enough to make the point that so many black people have succeeded to the highest levels of human achievement that Aisha Harris needs to grasp that and stop working the race card. It should be beneath her.
