Skip to comments.MSNBC’s Touré: Romney Engaging In The ‘Niggerization’ Of Obama
Posted on 08/16/2012 3:25:40 PM PDT by Beave Meister
On Thursdays edition of MSNBCs The Cycle the group discussed Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romneys assertion that President Obama should take [his] campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago. Co-host Touré saw what he believes to be explicit racial connotations beneath what Romney was saying, calling it the niggerization of the campaign.
That really bothered me, he said. You notice he said anger twice. Hes 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, hes not like us.
I know its a heavy thing, I dont say it lightly, but this is niggerization, Touré said to the apparent shock of his co-panelists. You are not one of us, you are like the scary black man who weve been trained to fear.
Naturally this led to a battle between Touré and conservative co-host S.E. Cupp. She took particular issue with the fact that Touré admitted that VP Joe Bidens chains comments were divisive, but is now calling Romney a racist for saying the Obama campaign is angry.

Is this guy for real? Can I say the word “black” without being called a racist? Romney used the words “hate” and “anger” and so that makes him a racist? Why do we even give these people a forum on television from which to speak?!
This is a duplicate post (we all do it all the time, but the Mods can fix it)
Let me get this straight - saying that the man is “angry” is racist? For real racism I suggest Mr. Touré gaze into a mirror.
The only one using racial stereotyping is Touré.
