MSNBC: Harris-Perry And Panel Ridicule Mitt Romney's Black Grandson
In a nauseating display of mean-spirited ignorance, MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry and her panel of five ridiculed Mitt Romney's black grandchild as something "that's not like the others." The MSNBC segment was a look back at 2013, and for some reason a Romney family photo that shows former Massachusetts governor with a grandchild on each knee was cherry-picked for mockery.
The only apparent reason for the ridicule was purely based on the race of Kieran Romney, the governor's adopted grandchild who happens to be black.
You can hear panelist Pia Glenn singing the lyrics to the "Sesame Street" song, "One of these things doesn't belong here." After finishing the ditty, Glenn says, "And that little baby, front and center, would be the one.”
Dean Obeidallah then attacks the child as token, "“I think this picture is great. It really sums up the diversity of the Republican party, the RNC. At the convention, they find the one black person.”
Throughout, Harris-Perry chuckles along approvingly.
