Touré Neblett didn’t really say that, did he?


Unfortunately, yes he did:

MSNBC’s Touré: Romney engaging in ‘niggerization’ of Obama

On Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Cycle,” co-host Touré accused Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s of subjecting President Barack Obama to “niggerization” in his critique of his November election opponent. Touré took exception Romney’s response after Vice President Joe Biden said the former Massachusetts governor would return people to “chains” if he became president.

Some have interpreted Biden’s remark as a metaphor, but during a speech Tuesday in Chillicothe, Ohio Romney said he was not among them.

“I mean, that really bothered me,” Touré said. “You notice he said ‘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, I don’t say it lightly, but this is niggerization. ‘You are not one of us, you are like the scary black man who we’ve been trained to fear.’ And the idea of locating anger around Obama just doesn’t fit with who he is and who he trained himself to be going back to high school, training himself to be ‘no-drama Obama.’ They are talking to people who are trained to hate him, who want to hate him so this how we turn out the base to work against him.”

The lone conservative on the program, S.E. Cupp, challenged Touré and reminded her co-host that Romney was responding to an allegedly racial comment from Biden in the first place.


What exactly did Romney say that was so terrible?

“Mr. President, take your campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago.”

But you want to know the worst part?

Touré gets paid good money to spew bullshit like that.

    Really, there are almost no words.

    Chicago NBC news said something similar last night.
    Of course, they did not ever broadcast the brain dead vice president say Romney was going to put “y’all back in chains”.

  2. It’s already a trending game on Twitter. https://twitter.com/#!/search/%23ThingsToureThinksAreRacist

    My faves so far:

  3. DeniseVB says:

    Did Toure include the whole Romney quote ? Or just the last line? The whole quote was quite beautiful including those who lived and died by the sword and flag.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Found it….

      “…..Everywhere I go in America there are monuments that list those who have given their lives for liberty. There’s no mention of their race, their party affiliation or what they did for a living. They lived and died under a single flag fighting for a single purpose. They pledged allegiance to the United States of America. So Mr. President, take your campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago and let us get about rebuilding and reuniting America.”

      • Well that explains. That’s a scary message. If you’re Obama, that is.

      • except it’s not true. Chief Joseph, John Brown, Mary Dyer, Susan B Anthony, Alice Paul, Malcolm X, Harvey Milk, Margaret Sanger, MLK, Robert F Kennedy, JFK. Many many Americans have struggled and put their lives on the line for liberty outside the forum of official and/or foreign war. Many of them died in the process. They are most certainly remembered and celebrated for their work to expand the circle of liberty to include native americans, african americans, women, gay Americans etc etc.

        I agree with Mitt’s sentiment — that divisiveness is a strategy obama uses for cynical craven purposes and he should STOP — but RR does a disservice to the proud history of activism and protest by our foremothers and fathers who made us ALL full citizens.

        • jeffhas says:

          I go along with the ‘memory’… but the Memorials as Romney puts it are not constructed to highlight their ‘otherness’ as Neblett likes to say.

  4. angienc says:

    Toure logic: “They gonna put y’all back in chains” (to a largely AA audience) isn’t a racist dog whistle, but “angry” is. Umkay.
    Second of all — the one who is being “otherized” is Romney — you know, he’s not like the “rest of us” because he was “born with a silver spoon in his mouth.”

    • Oswald says:

      And he belongs to a weird religious cult.

    • Karma says:

      And yet he has to run off and write a book when someone “otherizied” him.

      ….

      If blackness has become so infinite and malleable a thing, wherein does it exist? Touré insists that there is a “core” there and that “who I am is indelibly shaped by blackness.” Nonetheless, many blacks, including members of his own generation, may wonder if there is anything left, as Touré discovered one terrible night in college. During his freshman year at Emory, he had hung out mostly with white friends, but soon enough was spending “all my social time with black students.” Later on, after a party at the black dorm, a large black man from Alabama barked at him: “Shut up, Touré! You ain’t black!” Devastated, Touré spent the rest of the night in the soul-searching that eventually led to the present book.

        He must be the only person pre-2008 who read Dreams of My Father, because it sounds like he cribbed the basic story line.

    Thank God it’s now out in the open! Now, can we move on.

    while toure is defining just who backtrack is, ask him why he will not help his brother? that tells me more about backtrack than anything he says. If the fools that follow him can see that he only sees them when they are useful, that says a lot about them too

  7. mcnorman says:

    Oh Oswald, it’s code speak for “we don’t want to lose and we will say whatever it takes to keep the WH.”

  8. Thought you would especially like this one, Myiq:

    Record number of Army suicides.

    So let’s all get wee wee’ed up about the niggerization of the racist in the White House! (did I just speak French?)

    Why does he even have a job? A hatemonger like that should be shunned in civilized society.

  11. yttik says:

    There are many reasons why this comment is off the wall, but I’ll just go with this part,
    “you are like the scary black man who we’ve been trained to fear.”

    Nope, Obama in his mom jeans trying to throw the opening pitch pretty much decimated that stereotype.

    • LOL … no kidding! It’s all metaphorical. He’s the big scary black man who is gonna take our money. Now what exactly were they trying to convey with the anti-Allen West ad?

      • yttik says:

        I know! Some of the crap they come up with is astounding.

        Racism is portraying West as a scary black man and showing him punching a white woman in the face. Racism is Biden saying Obama is “the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean..” and Biden threatening people will be put back in chains and Obama telling people they need to stop feeding their kids Popeye’s fried chicken for breakfast. These are the comments that smack of racism.

    • angienc says:

      LMAO! Oh, that was too good, yttik — I had to steal it:

  12. Wow. Kira Davis hitting it out of the park on Toure’s comment:

    • WMCB says:

      Sorry for the double post. Yeah, she nails it.

    • HELENK says:

      That young lady is something else. She has her self together. She should be very proud of herself. She did not let hate and stupidity of others ruin her life. Good for her

    • Karma says:

      To cheapen the dialogue about racism has been one of the worst things about Obama and his supporters. And one of the most irresponsible things I have ever seen a president inspire.

      Great response….here’s hoping it actually hits a nerve with him.

    • myiq2xu says:

      I frontpaged this.

  13. Karma says:

    America’s first black Gov doesn’t softball Biden’s remarks and dissects it further. More at the link with some Hillary for VP remarks.

    America’s first black governor in modern times has become the most senior Democrat to break ranks over Joe Biden’s ‘y’all in chains’ comments, telling the Vice President: ‘Slavery is nothing to joke about.’

    Douglas Wilder, who was governor of Virginia from 1990 to 1994 and the first black governor since Reconstruction, told CNN that ‘without question’ Biden’s remarks in Danville, Virginia (though the veep seemed to think he was in North Carolina) ‘were appeals to race’.

    He continued: <b?'The important thing I got out of this was Biden separated himself from what he accused the people of doing. As a matter of fact, what he said is they are going to do something to y’all, not to me. Not us. So he was still involved with that separate American.

    ‘As far as I am concerned, the President would not associate himself with those remarks. And I expect as the days go forward there will be more clarity associated with what the president feels about what Joe Biden said.

    Someone needs to go over to MSNBC with a tranquilizer gun and bag these foaming at the mouth crazy people. My new theory: rabies.
