The Romneys sent out this photo of their many grandchildren on their Christmas card this year.

On Sunday the racists on MSNBC mocked the photo and the Romney family for adopting a black child.

Sarah Palin weighed in on the awful racist attack yesterday.

Last night Melissa Harris Perry apologized for her racist attack on the Romney family.
Business Insider reported:

MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry offered an apology to the Romney family on Tuesday after a panel on her show mocked the fact that one of Mitt Romney’s grandchildren is black.
On Sunday’s “Melissa Harris-Perry” show, Harris-Perry led a panel in discussing the “Photos of the Year,” which included a Romney family Christmas photo. In the photo, Romney is seen holding his adopted grandchild, Kieran, who is black.

During the segment, guest panelist Pia Glenn sang, “One of these things is not like the others! One of these things just isn’t the same,” a reference to Kieran. “And that little baby, front and center, would be the one.”

For her part, Harris-Perry imagined Kieran Romney and North West, the daughter of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, marrying in the future.

When The Right Scoop first took note of the panel’s comments on Monday, it caused an uproar.

Early Tuesday morning, Harris-Perry tweeted an apology. She noted that she comes from a mixed-race family, and that she felt “familiarity” with the photograph.

Here’s Melissa Harris Perry’s apology:
