Kieran Romney

Mitt Romney’s Black Grandson

Former presidential nominee Mitt Romney has a new addition to the family, a beautiful baby boy adopted by his son, Ben, and his daughter-in-law, Andelynne.  Like any typically proud grandfather, he made the announcement of his 22nd grandchild to the world via Twitter.  But there is one slight problem:  Mitt Romney’s grandson is black.

In accordance to the vile diatribe spewed by the Left, rich, white Republicans have no business adopting black babies.  Although Mitt Romney’s run for president has long been over, comments from the Left on the child’s adoption imply that Romney’s family is simply trying to improve his image among black Americans by adopting a black baby:




Will someone tell these people that Mitt Romney’s campaign ended back in November of 2012!

It is not just Twitter users attacking the Romney family.  TheGrio, an adjunct of MSNBC and a news source popular amongst black Americans, recently published an article titled “Mitt Romney reveals adopted black grandson, name translates to ‘little dark one’”.  In the article, writer Kunbi Tinuoye makes the case for subtle racism by making the meaning of Romney’s grandson’s name Kieran, a widely popular name in Ireland which means “black” or “little dark one,” the focal point of his article.

While we are all tribal by nature (i.e. oriented around the family unit), the problem with referring to blacks as a collective (e.g., the black community) and not as individuals is that a mob mentality can be formed against those outside of the community. In this case, the Romney family’s recent adoption is the target of that mentality.  When a white family in the public eye adopts a black baby, blacks feel the need inject their input as if their approval is needed simply because the baby is black.  The baby is not an individual, but is—-was–-a part of the black community, and has now been sabotaged by a man who is a part of a political party who would (in their thinking) like nothing more than to see the demise of the black community as a whole.

Given the disturbing fact that well over fifteen million black babies have been aborted or left to die after a botched abortion, one would think that the black community would view this child’s happy beginning in life as something to be celebrated.  But, apparently, the adoption of a black baby by a family of white Republicans is something far more heinous than the demise of the forty million who face death each year.

    Hate and racism and politics is blinding too many people. The baby maybe black and the family who adopted him may be white and rich, etc but there are so many children of color that need a home. As lo g as he is provided a home and is loved that is all that matters and unless you live in the Romney household how can you know that? Many white celebrities have adopted children of different races and love is colorblind and that is what counts. A baby is not a political tool. I write this neutrally as I am personally sick of politics being the basis of e dry conversation even my son has to defend himself as his friends 13 years old are discussing politics. Discussion can be good but respect is something that is being lost almost completely. I know fascism exists but we have to learn to have respect for one another or else hatred will lead to serious instabilities in our society.

    They hate Mitt Romney because they THINK he hates them because they are black and he is white?

    Isn’t that sorta like, ummm, racial profiling?

    Smart people come in all flavors and variety. What makes them smart is their realization that truth and fact is pretty much the same thing and no matter what you say about anything the truth – the facts – is STILL the truth.

    Those people who think Mitt Romney hates black people need to PROVE IT! Because I completely missed that! Or else they need to be smart enough to keep their bigotry to themselves!

    Besides. I get a little tired of all of this “casual” hatred. It’s so fashionable. “Ooooo – I hate racists. I have a “right” to hate white people because they are all racists – except for Harry Reid”. Hatred is becoming a cliché’! Stop it! You are ruining my genuine hatred. Now when I really hate someone? It seems so disingenuous….

    So… worn out!

    So the little guy is in a loving home and will have the best of everything and the blacks are angry because?
    Better that he is pulled apart by an abortion doctor? What kind of mindset is that?
    So afraid that the whites will take away his “blackness” that they would rather see him dead.
    What a sick world we live in.

      Please don’t say blacks every black person does not have that view or feel this way. I am really sorry you feel that.

    Reading the comments by these hate full people, leaves an impression of lost souls with no good left in their hearts.
    One can only hope they some day can find kindness to replace their vile rhetoric and evil left wing ways.

    It seems that these fascist liberal blacks only voted for the black half of the bi-racial Barack H Obama . As Obama was born to a white mother and a black Muslim Kenyan father but was raised in Indonesia by a Muslim step father until he was about 10 years old. He was then raised by his white communist grandparents in Hawaii.
    One wonders what moral and political values does he follow?

    God Bless the Romney family. A child deserves a loving home regardless of color. It’s not children that are racist, it’s the vile adults that resent that child having a loving home.

    His son and daughter in law adopt a child who is black, that has nothing to do with Mitt. That child will be raised in a loving family and that child will have a opportunity to be a productive citizen in society with God at his side. Better than what the black community as a whole has to offer him. The child is the lucky one who wasn’t aborted

      I guess you don’t hear the hatred in such a ridiculously stereotypical statement. As a black woman who is raising my child with his father in a stable home with every advantage I must say I know others who are doing the same. You just did the same thing the black people you are accusing did and if you feel so strongly about black people perhaps you should address that. You are prejudice by your own ignorance. As an obviously non black person you are entitled to your bias opinion but statistically the highest number of people on welfare are white don’t believe me educate yourself and there are many other facts that you should learn.
