The Cycle's Unfair Rebuke Of Phil Robertson

"Then you read he has a biracial grandchild. What environment is that child living in? What will that child to unlearn when he gets older?"

On MSNBC's The Cycle on Thursday, substitute co-host Jonathan Capehart sought to portray Phil Robertson not only as a racist, bigot, and homophobe, but a poor grandfather as well.

But there's a piece in that story that I don't think a lot of people caught. Phil Robertson’s grandson, Willie's son, is adopted and he's biracial. That comes towards the end of the piece after you've read everything that he has said about gay people, about women, about African-Americans, you know, blacks are happy in the pre-civil rights era. Then you read he has a biracial grandchild. What environment is that child living in? What is that child learning? And for me, the thing is, what must that child, what will that child have to unlearn when he gets older?
