Uncommon Sense

politics and society are, unfortunately, much the same thing

The Romneys show us the real reason Republicans are racist

So now Mitt Romney has an adopted black grandson. How do we know this and why do we care? Because MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry finds it noteworthy. Note, it is not the fact that one of Romney’s kids adopted a child that is worthy of mention. No, the adoption itself is not the point of hilarity on Harris-Perry’s show. What was the reason for mentioning this photo to the panel she invited? The child’s race.

Of course the panel finds it “ironic” that the photo of the Romney family supposedly reflects the diversity of the Republican Party – with the one token black member. The fact that progressives and particularly black leftists go out of their way to prevent black people from leaving the leftist plantation and joining the Republican Party is not to be mentioned. It is not Republicans or conservatives of any stripe who exclude blacks from their party. It is not Republicans or conservatives who keep interjecting race into various discussions, often gratuitously. It is progressives who do this, particularly leftists who get paid to find racism even when it isn’t there. It wasn’t Republicans or conservatives who supported slavery, Jim Crow, or other forms of racism in America’s past, and it isn’t Republicans or conservatives who make a living off of fomenting racial divisiveness now.

The Romney family is one of many, many conservative families who adopt children, and many of these have adopted black children. Why would racist white people adopt black children? They are not racist, and they treat race as a non-issue in the first place. Which was the point of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream speech, was it not? Unlike Harris-Perry’s panel, who finds race to be the ONLY noteworthy aspect of the Romney family photo. One need not work hard to imagine the public reaction had a Fox News panel mocked a family for adopting a child of a different race.

Republicans are not the racists here and they have never been the party of racism. That label was earned by the other party. Republicans are often regarded as racist simply because they are so often accused of such. With bigotry on display by the mocking progressive panelists, we see the Romney family putting diversity into practice in their real lives. And we are still supposed to think of Republicans as racist merely because progressives say so.
