MSNBC's Touré Neblett Offers 12 Second Apology for Romney 'Niggerization' Remark

As NewsBusters previously reported, MSNBC's Touré Neblett on Thursday's The Cycle accused presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney of using what he called "niggerization" against Barack Obama.

On Friday, Neblett offered a twelve second - yes, I said twelve second! - apology for his disgraceful remark (video follows with transcript and commentary):

MSNBC's Touré Neblett Offers 12 Second Apology for Romney 'Niggerization' Remark

TOURE NEBLETT: On yesterday’s show, in a discussion about the presidential race, I used a word to make a point. In retrospect, I muddied the discussion by using the N-word. I could have made my point without that word. I shouldn’t have used it, and for that I’m sorry.

And that was that. Twelve whole seconds.

Notice how the name "Mitt Romney" or the actual context of what he said was completely absent?

Let's refresh everyone's memory:

NEBLETT: You notice [Romney] 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.

Pretty serious accusation regardless of the N-word.

Yet all he apologized for on Friday was the use of the epithet not the actual context of the remark.

I guess he and MSNBC are standing by his statement minus the N-word.

Tells you a lot about this so called "news network," doesn't it?

"In retrospect, I muddied the discussion by using the N-word."

No Touré, you committed slander by saying "niggerization," which you used quite specifically and inflammatorily and knowingly - because you literally made up the word yourself - and which you are refusing to use in your apology, so that people don't focus on how obviously and viciously and calculatedly racist you really are.

Vile punk.

This guy is a total punk. I’ve seen him doing his angry-black act on TV several times. He’s a low-grade racist in the Sharpton mold.

I heard that word many, many years ago, in the 50s, in WVa. It’s not new; it’s just been dormant, thankfully. It’ll soon be in the Urban Dictionary colloquium.

This punk was trying to close off our ability on the right to debate the left by making criminal certain language choices. These liberals would make the Nazi Party blush.

Perhaps he needs to take his anger to chicago with obama.

Neblett is a prime example of why you never want to hire someone like him. He lacks all values and conscience. And then you can't fire him. Obviously a product of multicultural diversity and quotas. People like this need to suffer for putting me and my children in debt to the government for the rest of our lives.

“Isn’t he that angry Negro Fella?”

Kanye West. Spike Lee. Leo Pitts. Al Sharpton. The New Black Pampers. Trayvon’s dad. Just off the top of my head.
It’s a long list.

These racist black Sharpton types need to be marginalized like their white supemicist & La Raza counterparts. Don’t want to be one nation under God? Then Get Out!

Fight “niggerization” with “crackerization”.

Technically, he apologized only for using the word, he did not actually retract what was said, because he still believes it to be true.

‘Why is my gay-dar alarming?’

Mine was making chirping sounds also so I did the Google thing and he is married with two kids, but so is O’gag the fag.

BTW, there is only one person in the 57 states with that name.
