Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney announced back in September that they had welcomed their 22nd grandchild to their family, officially adopting Kieran James Romney. And on Sunday’s edition of Melissa Harris-Perry on MSNBC, the entire panel could not hide their joy as they mocked the Romney’s grandchild … because he’s black.
Via Right Scoop:
On MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry on Sunday, the panel was discussing several topics of the “of the year” variety. In the below clip, panelists are shown photos ‘of the year” and asked to offer humorous captions. Host Harris-Perry shows a Romney family photo that includes his adopted grandchild, who happens to be black, and this is the reaction.
The panelists start laughing the moment the photo is on the screen, because obviously. Then the first response is Pia Glenn off-camera sing-songing “one of these things is not like the others, one of these things just isn’t the same” and the rest of the panel chuckles along. It’s funny because Romney is white and his grandson isn’t, which is obviously hilarious. Because as everyone knows, the races should not mix.
But it’s even better than just hilarious, it also makes you think! Because, as the final comment from the panel tells us, this pic is a microcosm of 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.”
This shouldn’t come as a surprise though. MSNBC’s staff is chock full of race-baiters, and in September Kunbi Tinuoye of the blog, The Grio, mocked the Romney’s because of the child’s name. Kieran is the Irish form of a Gaelic word that means “little dark one.” When applied to humans, it means “dark-haired.” Which of course means the Romney’s are racists who mock their own adopted grandchild.
