MSNBC's Toure: Romney Engaging In 'Ni--erization' Of Obama [View all]


He pointed to a speech Romney gave attacking what he called Obama's "wild" accusations against him. "This is what an angry and desperate presidency looks like," he said. "Mr. President, take your campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago." Touré reacted strongly to this.

"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 ni--erization. You are not one of us, and that you are like the scary black man who we've been trained to fear."

S.E. Cupp, the conservative on the panel, fired back angrily. She called Touré "dishonest" for saying that Joe Biden's "chains" comments were "divisive" but that Romney was using racial code. "That is so irresponsible, Touré!" she said.

The Romney campaign appeared to have noticed Touré's comments. A spokesperson told Breitbart News, "We are discussing this matter with network executives at MSNBC."
