Racism: MSNBC panel mocks black Romney grandchild as token

See also

On Sunday, MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry conducted a panel mocking the recently-adopted grandchild of Mitt Romney. The reason? The child is black.

Caleb Howe said at The Right Scoop that Perry showed panelist "photos of the year” and asked them to offer humorous captions.

When Harris-Perry showed a Romney family photo that included the most recent addition, the panelists laughed.

Howe observed that Pia Glenn began by sing-songing off-camera that “one of these things is not like the others, one of these things just isn’t the same."

The rest of the panel simply chuckled along.

But that wasn't enough.

The panel then used the photo to bash the GOP.

“It sums up the diversity of the Republican party and the RNC, where they have the whole convention and they find the one black person,” one panelist said at the end.

Twitter users took Harris-Perry to task for the classless and overtly racist display, Twitchy said.

"The depravity of @MHarrisPerry knows no bounds," one person said.

"Liberals still reacting to Romney's grandchild with the (lack of) class you've come to expect," another person added.

"Shame on her to use an innocent baby, who is loved by the Romney family, unconditionally," tweeted "Twin66."

Actor Nick Searcy, himself the father of an adoptive black child, dared Harris-Perry to mock him.

"Yo, Melissa! Mock me too!" he tweeted.

"Now all transracial adoptions are 'tokens,' thanks to Melissa," he said in another tweet.

Searcy went on to say that liberals need the races divided and pitted against each other for political gain.

"They have no love," he added.

Searcy also agreed with conservative talk show Dana Loesch, who said Harris-Perry owes the child and the entire Romney family an apology.

Ironically, MSNBC is the network that claims every utterance by a Republican -- even words like "Chicago" and "golf" -- is racist.

Incidents like this are the reason we refer to MSNBC as the official network of insane liberal hate.
