Live by racial obsession, die by racial obsession:

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.

In the photo, the former Republican presidential candidate and his wife Ann, who are both white, sit in the center of their 22 grandchildren. Nestled on Mitt’s knee is one toddler grandson and on his other knee he holds baby Kieran James, the adopted infant son of Mitt’s son, Ben, and his wife, Andelyne. His adoption was announced in September.

The Romneys, who are devout Mormons, have regularly showcased their five adult sons and their ever-growing brood.

After the image flashed on the screen during the show, actress Pia Glenn broke out in song, singing, “One of these things is not like the others, one of these things just isn’t the same.”

“That little baby, front and center, would be the one,” said Glenn, who was among the four panel members who joined Harris-Perry for the segment.

Harris-Perry’s so-so Twitter apology is here, but the people most deserving of an apology are any MSNBC viewers she’s managed to successfully convince that non-liberals are the ones obsessed by skin color.

Here’s the segment in question:

That’s exactly the kind of stuff they often accuse Republicans doing. MSNBC should come up with some sort of apology generator for their hosts who get caught in traps set by their own projection.
