Harris-Perry truly has something wrong with her mind.

She's pissed her mother gave her a white first name.  That, or her corn rows are too tight.

Liberals are just nasty people.

The best they can do is ridicule anything they cannot pigeon-hole...

Bravo.
I hereby invite Ms. Perry to visit my house and to my face mock my niece whose skin happens to be a few shades darker than mine. What were my sister and BIL thinking when they adopted her into a loving home? They're as hideous as the Romneys!

When you finish with her, send her here. One of my daughters is quite a bit darker than me and most of my grand kids - actual blood of my blood - are a hell of a lot darker than she is.

MSNBC's Harris-Perry apologizes for mocking Romney over black grandchild

Quote
MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry apologized this morning amid a growing media storm over the way she and her guests made fun of Mitt Romney's adopted grandchild -- who happens to be black.




On her weekend show, the African-American host and her panelists started laughing almost immediately in the segment, in a way that made me cringe.

The object of their derision, cloaked as it was in pointed humor? A Romney family photo, with the grandchild perched on Romney's knee.

Hysterical, huh?

Yes, Harris-Perry kept cooing about how the baby was cute. The real target, for her and the guests, was Mitt.

As in, isn't it funny that this white Mormon with a white family would find among his clan a black baby.

Maybe it was supposed to be okay because the host is African-American. But I think the segment took a horribly wrong turn.

Harris-Perry apologized on Twitter, shortly after a demand by Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus that she do so for her "disgusting" comments.

"I apologize to all families built on loving transracial adoptions who feel I degraded their lives or choices," she wrote.

"As black child born into large white Mormon family I feel familiarity w/ Romney family pic & never meant to suggest otherwise.

"Therefore, while I meant no offense, I want to immediately apologize to the Romney family for hurting them."

It's always all about skin-color with these people.  Nothing else matters.

Who are the racists again?

Another non-apology. She "apologizes," but only if the offended party feels their lives or choices were degraded. What does she expect them to do, call her up and say they feel degraded? Here's a little lesson for lefties who offend people on a daily basis:  when you've said something obnoxious, rude and offensive, an apology goes something like this:  What I said was wrong and indefensible. I shouldn't have said it. Whether or not anyone is offended, I realize it was wrong and I apologize.

Apologies are not conditional, and they don't depend on the offended party going to great effort to explain whether or not - or how - they may have been offended by the comment in question.
