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.

Lets see Republicans have killed education for the poor (slavery, without an education we beg for the 1%s scrapes) I personally think Biden was talking in general, (the whole 99% are the slaves), it's not rocket science, anyone with 1/2 a brain would see it, if you don't your an idiot. Since Bush this country's been F@&CKED!!!! SCREW YOU ROMNEY, YOU & YOUR FOLLOWERS ARE DESTROYING AMERICA

Honestly, if Obama was to lose, would blacks riot in the streets?

Cont. - I thought now it's personal and we are along for the ride. It's voters like you that are putting my kids future at risk! That's personal! You are entitled only to the Pursuit of Happiness! You cannot take from the pocket of those who have earned and label it justice. I do want to know what Obamas plan is because I missed it last time! We still don't know his agenda -from his mouth- but maybe you could go see Obama 2016 and for the 1st time get introduced to the person you are voting for! He will not win and if Romney doesn't make a clear path to recovery in his 1st 3 years then his ass will be out in 4. FYI- please - save many any explanation.

Matt I have no band here that I interact with. I am not racist never have I ever said anything to bait people with race. I'm not on the fence I'm voting for Obama but unlike u I can actually admit when I disagree with something Obama does. U come on here repeatedly asking what is Obama's work plan implying he doesn't have one when we both know that's a lie. But that's also something Republicans have tried to use because they think people are too stupid to look shit up their self which in ur case is true. And u Matt ARE racist. I have seen the shit u post. U have had comments deleted I never have! So why do u think that is Matt? Ur hateful and u try to spread lies instead of debating real issues. Ur mitt has no plan. His plan cut taxes. How will he pay for it who knows so please get off ur high horse acting like mitt knows what he's doing. Quit drinking the mitt kool aid!! Lol

You and your band of freeloaders on this site are nothing less than what all is wrong with this Country! This thread is about a co- host on MSNBC making a racial charge against Romney! Just like the black Female Senator in Virginia accusing Romney of being racist! What your sorry racist ass doesn't understand Chely is that you and your Party will not speak of the Economy or what needs to be done to fix it! Obama has you sheep doing his talking while he buys beers in Iowa! Your SuperPac adds are pathetic! Romney killed a woman with Cancer? Don't you for a minute try to beleive that you are in the middle- unbiased.! Your President is a phony! It's that simple! His followers are blatant racists who are pulling out all stops! Don't you for a minute try and make beleive you are on the fence! We all know what your about! Your constantly fishing and u use race for bait! Your whole Klan is a disgrace!

Chely take your head out of your rectum! Obama has stomped the constitution with his Marxist views. "Share the wealth" and "level the playing field ", ringing any bells? What about the Obamacare TAX? Oh yes get healthcare or pay the fine! Open the doors and do an end runaround to let ILLEGAL immigrants stay in the US. This is what you want for another four years! Racism ....is it not the Democrats putting people in chains and screaming niggerization? Their words, not Republicans! The Democrats are pulling the racecard out.

Say when their side is wrong. Believe me the Republicans are betting on getting all the racist votes. And they have made speeches geared toward this group. I don't know if ur trying to fool urself or others on here but one thing is for sure BOTH SIDES HAVE USED SHADY TACTICS! And have lied in their attack ads. U want a ex. OK Obama is taking out work for welfare its a lie and if u notice when that ad comes up and there's a small text under it that sites the info u will see there is only a date no sited source. Get ur head out of ur ass.

Ohhh please. Both sides are doing shady shit just like every election. Its so laughable when they try to call eachother out. Only dumb people fall for the fake indignation of these running mates. Toure give me a break.
