MSNBC’s tampon-wearing Melissa Harris-Perry and her panel’s responses/reactions to the photograph depicting Mitt Romney’s family with their adopted grandchild should be shamed and held in contempt. The grandchild, Kieran- adopted by Mitt’s son Ben and his wife Andelynne, who happens to be black- is surrounded by loving relatives who made the conscious decision to accept him into their family and treat him as one of their own- regardless of Kieran’s color. The virtue of that decision and its implications- which should not only be celebrated but encouraged- was all but lost on this panel as these reprobates saw it more important and entertaining to ridicule and mock a white family- the Romney’s- for taking in a black child rather than appreciate the fact that a orphan was fortunate enough to be blessed with a loving home.
Furthermore this adoption almost certifies- considering the values the Romney’s hold- that Kieran won’t be one of the many “teens,” “youths,” “men” (or any other word intentionally used by the media to sanitize black delinquency of all ages) who possess self-destructive and delinquent tendencies which are currently terrorizing inner cities and innocent victims across the country. These panelists have and would condescendingly excuse and justify these behaviors because to rightly judge and condemn them would be considered “racist.”
I would like to know- does this panel of bright lights deride all white families who willingly and lovingly adopt black children or is it just the Romneys?
These champions of “diversity” surely wouldn’t have said or done this if the adopting family was white and gay.
The irony of this incident is that president Obama- of whom this panel is guilty of being mindless acolytes, was also raised by his grandparents and in a predominately white environment. Was he also a token? Is he also worthy of lyrical taunts such as “One of These Things Is Not Like the Other?”
The comments and behavior of Melissa Harris-Perry and her guests should be repudiated. Kieran Romney shouldn’t be the object of ridicule nor used as a prop in a racist and unfunny segment by several talent-less and unfunny panelists in an attempt to deride or besmirch a political opponent.
Considering much of what’s been said recently- from Martin Bashir suggesting that someone should defecate in Sarah Palin’s mouth and other insults, or Alec Baldwin’s anti-homophobic rants while trying to bully reporters; Al Sharpton’s mere presence and Michael Eric Dyson’s comments about love, Jesus and homo-eroticism, these comments are characteristic of the network.
Kieran’s adoption, Obama’s rearing by his grandparents and all other biracial adoptions are examples of love transcending color. The many recent comments of MSNBC employees prove that talent transcends MSNBC, which is why none exists on that particular channel.
