Media Blackout on Toure Neblett’s Racist, Anti-Semitic Holocaust Slur
The Gateway Pundit ^ | Sunday, May 25, 2014 | Kristinn Taylor

It’s been two days since MSNBC host Toure Neblett made a shockingly racist and anti-Semitic comment to a person claiming to be a descendent of Holocaust survivors.

“The power of Whiteness” is what Neblett callously told a poster Friday evening on Twitter (screen name @hope_and_chains) who responded to Neblett’s praise for an article on so-called “white privilege” by saying, “My family survived a concentration camp, came to the US w/ nothing, LEGALLY, and made it work. #SORRYFORBEINGWHITETHOUGHYOUGUYS”

Neblett, who has maintained Twitter silence since Friday night, has been blasted on Twitter since then, most notably by @redsteeze who Tweeted Holocaust imagery with caustic comments on “Holocaust privilege” such as sarcastically calling concentration camps “gated communities.”

With the exception of Mediaite, the media has totally ignored this latest racist blast by a MSNBC host. An online search Sunday afternoon revealed no coverage of Neblett’s Holocaust slur.

Oliver Willis of the media watchdog group (LOL) Media Matters for America posted his agreement with Neblett’s racist, anti-Semitic comment on Saturday. Willis, like Neblett, is Black:

“guess there are some out there who dont like to think that a holocaust survivor had a leg up over a black/brown person due to skin color”

Neblett is promoted as an “inspirational speaker” at Keppler Speakers. One of his presentations is laughably described as:

“How Racism Functions Today and Ways to Deal with it to Get Success

“Modern racism is far more fluid and subtle than the racism of our parents and grandparents. We often encounter moments where we feel we have received racist treatment but if we tried to explain it to others they would not understand. So what do we do? In this speech, Touré outlines several concrete things we can do to combat racism, based on his interviews with psychologists and sociologists. He explains that racism is not truly a comment on you or your ability, but on the person who is being racist.”

While the media may be giving Neblett a pass for now, one wonders how long MSNBC and Keppler Speakers will wish to be associated with an “inspirational” Black Nazi?

Actually what few blacks that were in nazi German were treated far better. They were forbidden from having children but they weren't rounded up and exterminated.

via SultanKnish and FR:

Anti-semitism is nothing new in the black community.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/3131311/posts

“The Black Hitler was a Chicago community organizer who moved to New York. Somewhere along the way he picked up a gold lined cape, a purple turban and a stepladder on which he used to stand while giving speeches outside the stores of Harlem’s dwindling Jewish community.

The cape and the turban were combined with Nazi style military shirt and jackboots, for the quixotic uniform of a man who is remembered today as a pioneering labor leader— but was known back then as the Black Hitler.

A dagger thrust through his belt completed the ensemble.

In his stepladder speeches, Black Hitler declared that he was the only man who could stop the Jews, accusing them of spreading filth and disease, and called on his followers to tear out the tongues of any Jew they met.

He vowed an “an open bloody war against the Jews who are much worse than all other whites.”

Speeches like these earned him the title, ‘Black Hitler’ and intimidated local businesses into hiring workers from his own private labor union.

The enterprising community organizer dubbed himself Sufi Abdul Hamid, and when he opened his mosque, he expanded his name to His Holiness Bishop Amiru Al-Mu-Minin Sufi A. Hamid. His press man claimed that he had been born in Egypt beneath the shadow of a pyramid. In reality he had been born Eugene Brown in Lowell, Massachusetts and in Chicago had briefly claimed to be Bishop Conshankin, a Buddhist cleric. Like the Nation of Islam, which was finding its feet at around the same time, his theology was a hodgepodge of Islam and anything else he picked up along the way.

It is unknown what connection Sufi Abdul Hamid had to the burgeoning Nation of Islam, which took the same mix of racism, anti-semitism, black nationalism and Islam and became a major movement, but in the year before he moved to Harlem, Nation of Islam founder Fard Muhammad disappeared, and his successor Elijah Muhammad moved to Chicago after conflicts with the state government and rival NOI leaders. Hamid was probably never part of the Nation of Islam, but he had almost certainly seen it in action and his New York operation was guided by similar methods.

The year was 1932. In Germany, the actual Hitler was running for president. In New York City, Mayor Jimmy Walker was still reigning as the corrupt but entertaining figurehead of Tammany Hall’s Democratic party apparatus, but in a few months the Seabury Commission’s investigation into the city’s horrifyingly corrupt justice system would send the Tin Pan Alley singing mayor fleeing off to Europe along with his showgirl wife.

The Great Depression had hit New York’s prosperous commercial sector like a sledgehammer. The city that never slept had not gone quiet, but it had slowed down. New York’s black population had exploded in its boom days drawn by the lure of jobs, but now that the bust had come the streets of Harlem were full of unemployed men.

The time was ripe for a messiah or a violent explosion. And Sufi Abdul Hamid offered them both.

Toure must have been eating the “big Momma Obama” school menu...Now there are school clubs called “menu skeptics” which are challenging Big Momma Obama’s right to determine what kids eat...

Toure reminds me of one of those tiny dogs with bulging eyes that vibrate and piss in squirts when you look at them.
