RIO RANCHO, N.M. — A New Mexico high school teacher has been disciplined because a parent complained that the man told his black son, a freshman, that Santa Claus is white.

Officials at the school in Rio Rancho, about 15 miles north of Albuquerque, announced on Friday that the teacher recently was disciplined, but they declined to say how.

The incident happened in the same week that Fox News Channel's Megyn Kelly said on the air that both Santa Claus and Jesus were white. She later said she was joking.
