Since the release of the Justice Department's report on racial bias in the Ferguson, Mo. Police Department, a number of news organizations have been revisiting the details of teenager Michael Brown's death at the hands of white officer Darren Wilson. Fox News host Megyn Kelly has been one of the most outspoken critics of the investigation, claiming that the results of the report are promoting unfair criticism of Wilson, who was found to be not guilty of the crime.

On Monday's edition of her show, Kelly focused on one aspect of the report that she found particularly unfair: racist emails that had been circulated throughout the police department, as well as to several court employees.

Kelly felt that it was unfair to accuse the entire police department of misconduct just because of a few emails. "There are very few companies in America, whether they are public or private," she said, where "you won't find any racist e-mails, [or] inappropriate comments."

In other words, since racism is basically everywhere, it's not worth penalizing! Watch the clip below:
