Despite apology, MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry is still a racist

Two Sundays ago on her self-titled MSNBC show, Melissa Harris-Perry and a panel of guest contributors made derogatory comments about a photo of former presidential candidate Mitt Romney, his wife and their grandchildren. Included in the photo was the Romney’s adopted grandson, Kieran Romney, who happens to be African-American.

During that broadcast, Harris-Perry laughed and giggled at the derogatory comments of her guests which included one guest singing a Sesame Street song and another comparing the photo to the current demographics of the Republican Party. Following the episode, Harris-Perry sent out a series of tweets via Twitter expressing her sorrow “without reservation or qualification.” She then went on to qualify her apology by claiming that she “meant no offense” for her actions and comments. On her show yesterday, she provided what some believe was a heart-felt and sincere apology for the actions of her guests and herself.

But no quantity or quality of apologies will ever eliminate one discernible fact, which is that Harris-Perry is herself a racist.

While the songs and comments of her show’s guests were immature and moronic, it was Harris-Perry herself who made the most racist comments of all.

Here’s the curious thing. I looked back about a year ago at statistics for MSNBC. The crowd that watches them? Not that many. It’s mostly 18-30 year olds...with college background. The minority viewers? Well....none. No real Latino viewers, or black viewers.

Questions for Melissa:

1)When you were prepping for the show, you knew you were doing a segment with comedians who would comment on photos from 2013. Why did you choose the Romney family photo?

2)You say the comments were "unexpected"! Well, I can't imagine what else you would expect. Comedians were asked to "caption" the photo of Romney and family with black child. Of course it was going to be insulting!

3)Would you consider having Paula Dean on your show to discuss the sincerity of apologies and how they do or do not elicit forgiveness from the Left?

From link :”MSNBC has come up with some very colorful (no pun intended) definitions of what racism is today – including the use of words like welfare, Chicago, arrogant, and even ‘Obamacare’, as suggested by Harris-Perry herself. While some of those definitions are clearly debatable, one that is not is when people believe that whites should only married whites and people of color should only marry people of color. “

Like all libs, she wasn’t sorry until she got called on it. She’s not sorry for what she said, she’s sorry she got caught.

Do not be surprised if she will end up “shutting up” more because more conservatives will keep an eye on her.

Have you ever noticed that whenever something is posted from
the Examiner blog, it is invariably some pimp promoting his
own material?

Let’s take your case, for example:

Who is this racist “Melissa Harris-Perry”? If you ignore these people they may eventually go away. Never watching MSNBC would be a good place to start.

I lived in FL for a time many yrs ago. I've encountered a few so-called "ignernt redneck types". As idiotic as these peoples' racist viewpoints were, I can't help but respect them for being up front and honest about their screwed-up attitudes, unlike liberal/progressives like Harris *DASH* Perry, who pretend to be sensitive, "hip" and "with it". I've witnessed this mindset back in college, White student "activists" from privileged bckgrounds acting as if they were in solidarity with their "brothers and sisters" in the ghetto, pretending to be "down for the struggle" I wish I had them under surveillance on a Saturday night of partying. When the brewskis flowed and the doobies passed around, that's when these hypocrites let their, pardon the pun "TRUE COLORS" show. In vino veritas, indeed!
