MSNBC Co-Host Touré: Romney Is Taking Part in the ‘Ni**erization’ of Obama

On Thursday, the panel of MSNBC’s “The Cycle” dissected Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s claim that President Obama should “take [his] campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago.” Though many would simply write this off as standard campaign rhetoric, co-host Touré argued that Romney was using “deep stereotypes” about black people, calling the comments the “ni**erization” of Obama.

“That really bothered me,” he 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 ‘ni**erization,’”Touré continued, shocking his co-panelists. “You are not one of us, you are like the scary black man who we’ve been trained to fear.”

S.E. Cupp was particularly disturbed to hear Touré’s accusation. She argued that Vice President Joe Biden’s “put y’all back in chains” remarks were much more racially offensive, yet he was calling Romney a “racist” for calling Obama “angry.”

  1. It has nothing to do with the N word.
    He means take your cheap,sleazy,lies,back door politics back to Chicago where they are from.

  2. That is the only kind of response we ever get from the black community everytime the Republicans or tea party ever say anything concerning Obama and his Chicago style politics. Where was this kid or Al Sharpton for that matter when the “cracker” slang was used for white babies to be killed. Or where is the calling for Eric Holder to come before the commission who has charged him in the fast and furious gun deal that has killed Americans. And even yet why were the black panthers who intimidated the voters in Philly allowed to go unpunished. The American people called for justice in all these cases and it went unanswered. If there is any racism being displayed in this ugly race it is being done by the black community. I blame Oprah and Jackson and all the lilly livered sick liberals who started this rhetoric back in 2008 and continue the race card today.
    Bring back a white or black AMERICAN person who is willing to help out AMERICANS, AND LEGAL WITH PAPERS ALIENS and can put them to work. And one who can restore civility instead of division.
    I am hispanic and Obama didn’t fool me in 2008 and he hasn’t got me fooled now. He still wants to give America to the muslims.

  3. Be careful about signing up for the new Obama deal.
    They will know where every one is after they take temp amnesty.
    You are correct in your thinking of,Obama wants to give the America’s to the Muslims.

  4. MSNBC is a communist tool that only deals in lies and inuendos and considers it news and no one should watch it. I used to watch it just for the Brezinski girl. About 5 years back she was hot. Now she got old and ugly and doesn’t make sense when she speaks and really all she does is hang her head and pretty much speaks sporadically. And this idiot Toure sounding off like this makes me see that he is part of the problem instead of the solution.
