I said at the time that the segment went wrong and although I understand why the image of an African American child in a Mormon family with the history of the Mormon faith when it comes to their scriptures pertaining to Blacks,(especially a “conservative” family with the racist sentiments and rhetoric from the right long before but especially since ‘We the People’ elected and re-elected the first African American President), although it wasn’t malicious, should not have been done.

Melissa Harris Perry has shown more class and dignity than her right-wing critics who have said much worse… but I was touched by her heart-felt apology.

This is all part of the fake Conservative outrage which has a purpose of silencing liberal leaning voices that reveals there agenda. They did the same with Martin Bashir,

Who with an IQ over 75 didn't believe Sarah Palin was exposed to the political scene as a national joke to be ridiculed?

Neither comment by Perry or Bashir was as disgraceful as referring to President Obama and promoting him as some foreigner from Kenya as a central theme in their dissent or the mass conservative medial campaigns of lies on social programs started and extended by Conservative Presidents

Or the conservative lynch party involving ACORN and that Shirley Sharrod smear caper........

BS, she was forced to give her apology due to public outcry and to keep from being fired.

What a piece of stupid, classless waste of life.

Andrew Breitbart was never banned from television of LIFE no matter the despicable lies he orchestrated, promoted and published which nearly ruined lives of public servants even after those lies were proven manufactured.

This fake outrage is just part of the brinkmanship and Republican campaign of misinformation.

Where was the outrage from Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton, and Obama? These were obviously racist comments, yet they were all silent.

It's ok to be racist as long as you claim to be a liberal.

Communes for the children!.......bwhahahahahaha ha! Ph uk like champs, drap out babies, let the sucker next door pay for them and when the worse happens ratchet up the vice even more on the responsible. The same responsible ones who are more and more on life support themselves.....The real insanity that covers up for the failures of helping your fellow man or woman who bear no responsibility for their actions. The richest nation in the world that has gone from patriotism based on beliefs to patriotism based on payoffs. And more and more people are tired of being suckers.

Romney, you would have been a lousy president but thank you for showing class and intelligence when a fuxbot interviewer asked you a question about this issue.

To the fuxbot interviewer, I felt sorry for you as you went back two more times to ask Romney questions on this, and Romney did not take the smear spew bait and continued to show class.
