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.

To the imitation Matt below- for even the sickest of individuals as yourself- to get up this early and attempt once again to cloud this site with your illiterate ramblings knowing full well your going to be wiped clean is insanity- the uncut version. . You are just like this fool on MSNBC. You and your message bring clarity in reference to certain people- just like the person from MSNBC. Republicans along with myself have been right all along about the race card and how it's the ace in the hole or at least a last ditch effort for a sympathy vote. Competent people no more beleive him than they buy into your phony rhetoric but the 2 of you do make a good pair. YOU AND HIM ARE EXCELLENT EXAMPLES OF WHY PEOPLE SHOULD NEVER CROWN SOMEONE A VICTOR IF THEY ARE NOT ONE DAY PREPAIRED FOR DEFEAT! ROMNEY 2012

It's true I noticed the angry comment as well and it was leveled as an angry black man toward President Obama
