MSNBC's Touré Accuses Mitt Romney of "Niggerization" of President Obama

by at . Comments

MSNBC's Touré, co-host of the network's roundtable show The Cycle, used the n-word to describe Mitt Romney's campaign and its tactics against President Obama.

Touré insists recent comments by Romney were racially charged - somewhat ironic in that Romney was responding to a comment Joe Biden made - that Romney will "put y'all back in chains" - that some felt was racially charged.

"This is what an angry and desperate presidency looks like," Romney said. "Mr. President, take your campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago."

Touré reacted strongly to this, calling it "niggerization" ...

"That really bothered me," he said. "You notice he says 'anger' twice. He's really trying to use racial coding and access some really deep stereotypes about the angry black man."

"This is part of the playbook against Obama. The otherization, he's not like us. I know it's a heavy thing to say. I don't say it lightly ... But this is niggerization. You are not one of us, and that you are like the scary black man who we've been trained to fear."

Really, Touré?!

As his co-host points out, it's a bit of a stretch to accuse the GOP of racism when he described Biden's more controversial comment using the word "angry."

While Mitt Romney's faux outrage may be laughable, given Republicans' use of equally hard-nosed and divisive political tactics, Touré is pushing it here.

Or is he? Tell us what YOU think in the comments below.

Election 2012:


Hey blue eyed devil Tyrone quit laying your pink balks out in the sun so your blue veins in your itsy bitsy dick that still looks like it did the day you were born. And try to get sum ass in that crack in your back so you don't look like a jackal. And lastly I hear a child crying sounds like it's time for you to go do what needle dicks do best and fuck the child. Sick bastards!


Speak English, Twerps!

Obama 2012!!!!


@@ Matt---SHUT UP! Free Speech is still in the U.S. Constitution last time I checked...leastways, Obama hasn't gotten that shredded yet! Trollie get under that bridge! More and more are jumpin' on the RomRyan train...face it! PS You are a Democrat? Well, good for'll be losin' your hiney come November, but oh well.


What a coincidence Daina and Eyes just happened to back your POV at just the right moment.
Yes you are a Republican, well good for you. Anyone else contradicts what you say and release the hounds. On and on you blowhard fish. Shut up! Listening to you and the gals will make everyone vote for Obama. Blah blah blah you're on a GOSSIP site! Get on a political site and for god sakes put down the kool aid. The fact you procreated speaks volumes as to why this country is going to hell.


How low? Lower than whale shit is how low! These people are going to show us who they are and when they go down we can never let them up again. This is all premeditated and they feed on communism. It's time for Republicans to take the gloves off. The convention will be nothing short of a revelation and Opening night will be something not to miss. I worked at the local Republican Center today! It's refreshing to be around people that wear a belt and don't butcher the english language. Chick-Fil-A will pass out free Republican Sandwiches! Ha!


@Matt As far as the Obama Campaign goes? Desperate times mean desperate measures. For a sitting incumbent President...he's really behind (poll percentage-wise at this point)! Thus--Enter: Toure and Biden! Before ya know it, every media blip and campaign ad will have subliminal messages that are tainted with racist threats that if "whitey don't vote the POTUS back in, why he be just plain ole racist....yessir, I 'spect he is at that"! I hope the campaign came be cut above this biased foolishness! It should be of substance (the real issues) not desperate, respiteful rhetoric by a Prezzy that failed badly in his first and only term. I fear "How LOW can we go" will be the catch phrase of the Obamanites!
