MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry apologized Tuesday for openly mocking Mitt Romney's black adopted grandson, after Sarah Palin led the chorus of conservatives who criticized the cable news host. The Romney family Christmas card was among the items featured in the "2013: The year in political ridiculousness" segment on the cable news show Sunday.

I love it when the mask slips...
Yeah, I bet she won’t get the Bashir treatment though.
She’s disgusting - a true believer of the ridiculous American-leftist religion.
She apologized for telling the truth? Showing her true nature?
Maybe she needs to have some sessions with Jesse Jackson too and sensitivity training
Well if this was coming from a conservative, the libs would be all screaming.
The only time I watch MSNBC is when their outrageous attacks are shown on other media!
She is a Saturn V doucherocket.
No jokes on the Brad Pitt Christmas cards?
Was it an actual apology? Or one of those patented phony ones?
It’s about time someone come out and say - APOLOGY UNACCEPTED FOR THIS REASON: IF YOU MEANT IT, YOU WOULDN’T CONTINUE DOING IT!
Any apology that comes from anyone at MSNBC is meaningless. They are a bigoted, disgusting network - and thank God there are so few people that even watch their pathetic network!
Will not surprise me if it is the latter.
How may days are we going to have to go through this crap.
If you were sorry, Melitha, you wouldn’t have behaved this way in the first place.
Hopefully just today.
More publicity than viewers, I’d be saying.
Exactly. The old I am sorry you misunderstood what I said apology.
Every time she talks this image always pops into my head...
I guess she did “tweet” that it was without qualification. So there is that.
"I am sorry. Without reservation or qualification. I apologize to the Romney family.
"I work by guiding principle that those who offend do not have the right to tell those they hurt that they are wrong for hurting.
"Therefore, [u]while I meant no offense[/u], I want to immediately apologize to the Romney family for hurting them."
This was set up on that show. It was a direct, intentional attack on the Romney family, and specifically using an innocent little baby as the butt of the joke...with all of their smug laughter, somehow making it a party atmosphere.
These people have no moral compass. They are sick.
They never learn. Stupidity should be painful.
Ironic, the person in question comes from a bi-racial family herself!
Liberals are full of jealousy, hate and despair. This is generally part of their character.
Angry black women who deep down know that affirmative action has allowed them to ‘succeed’ - that and having lighter skin and white facial characteristics.
Good grief, if you’re a black female PhD in an African American studies program and you can’t get tenure - that’s a clue.
One wonders why this leftist nutjob even bothered with going after the family of Zero’s ringer. You’d think she’d want to kiss his ass for helping her Lord & Savior stay in the White House.
You missed the point!
Racial Bigots, such as Jesse Jackson and his student Melissa HP apologize FOR you, because YOU are the one that misunderstood the true meaning of their statement of fact.
The Church of Racial Bigotry Bullying is always full, and growing by the week!
Reverends Jackson and Sharpton are working as hard as they can to keep Racial Bigotry alive and well in America, and to their credit, MSNBC has stepped up to the plate and hit a home run with the hiring of so many stellar Racial Bigots, such as Melissa HP!
Impeach Obama. Period.
Would she be racist ? is she not approving of a WHITE FAMILY adopting a black child ?
Obviously the child will be well taken care and will not end up in the bronx smoking crack, claiming benefits, using guns and raping young girls while his mother sells her body for a few cents.
oooops.. I bet Ms Harris-Perry is foaming at the mouth if she is reading this. Calling me a racist.
I know exactly what they are trying to do and didn’t miss the point. I’m just saying their so-called “apology” needs to be rejected.
The African Express Card. Membership has its privileges.
She had her fun. Made her point. Tore into a decent Christian family. Now...time to ask forgiveness. Same ol, same ol over and over. This was pre-planned. She knew what she was doing.
This is as phony an apology as can be made.
This apology will last until this moron make another classless remark, which would be coming soon.
Her mom must be so proud of her darling daughter.
How come she is still working at MSNBC, are they in agreement with her comments.
Must be she is still working there, no wonder MSNBC has a viewing public that is in the sewer for viewers.,
MSNBC needs a total house cleaning. Truly, a sloppy run TV channel with zero oversight!
She needs to be given the Martin Bashear treatment and shown the door. There’s always aljazeera for her black asp.
Pompous liberal tip off: The hyphenated last name. I don’t watch MSNBC but would bet she’s not the only personality on the network with a last-name-as-political-statement.
1. Say something hideous.
2. Apologize for it.
3. Wait two weeks.
4. Goto 1.
I knew that you knew. I was aiming for the Lurkers.
I was trying to make the point, (with sarcasm), that a Lib cannot conceive that anything that they say or do could, in their wildest imagination, be EVER considered to have the slightest hint of Racial Bigotry, bullying or brainwashing.
Objective analysis shows that the most racially bigoted people in America are from the far left spectrum of our declining culture.
Reverends Jackson and Sharpton, are the leading experts in the art of Racial Bigotry Bullying.
In fact, Jesse J. makes an excellent living blackmailing, (no racial pun intended), large corporations to hire what HE thinks is the correct quota of HIS “bunch of folks.”
Reads like Public Relation rules at the White House.
I am shocked by the number of black women who are in govt power
positions lately. A move no doubt spearheading by Jarrett.
Then she immediately walks it back: "I work by guiding principle that those who offend do not have the right to tell those they hurt that they are wrong for hurting. "Therefore, while I meant no offense, I want to immediately apologize to the Romney family for hurting them."
In other words, you were wrong to be offended, but I have to right to say that you were.
Jezebel evil bitch. Not enough bad stuff can happen to this two-bit lisping crack whore.
Being quite light skinned she is very neurotic in her pursuit in showing how black she is and how down for the struggle. Wacky and manic to show she is blacker than the others.....
Despite having a white mother and being so melanin deprived
Good point, it’s always the light-skinned blacks that are the most racist, as if they have to over compensate for their partial whiteness.
Alex Baldwin and Martin Bashir were fired for outbursts. They make outrageous statements all the time. This is official MSNBC policy.
As they say, there’s no such thing as bad publicity.
I’m curious - why is it light-skinned “blacks” are often the most racially militant, anti-white, and most ironically - claim most loudly their allegiance to their blackness? Huey Newton, Angela Davis, Melissa Harris Perry, Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan, Eric Holder all come to mind.
One would think such multi-racial people would be the most able and willing to cross these false barriers. Instead, they build them even higher.
