Touré plays the race card, denies the existence of a race card

Touré Neblett, co-host of The Cycle on MSNBC (we had to look that one up), took to Twitter to put conservatives in their place regarding Amb. Susan Rice and the criticism she has received from Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham. Touré, who recently attacked McCain and Graham as “old, white, establishment folks,” denied the existence of a race card and then accused whites of using it to intimidate African Americans.

He did get some backup.

When conservatives countered, Touré was MIA. That didn’t stop them.

Touré? Touré? Anyone there?

… said the co-host of an MSNBC show.


Touré eventually decided to address his critics … kinda.

As always, a truly convincing argument.

  • BobC

    A mind is a terrible thing to lose.

  • Zanne

    If Toure didn’t have the race card he would have no cards at all…. American Express, Visa or Master Card. He is a provocateur of racism.

  • Rella

    “Race is not a card that can be played as if a situation is un-racial until that card is played”
    Yeah he really is that dumb. Yes Toure the situation is “un-racial” because there is no racism to see. Thus one has to make up racism by throwing out the card – it’s like changing the colors in UNO – you can’t deal with actual reality so you change it thus playing the race card DUH!

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      Especially that Draw Four Wild Card…

  • Sterling Hallbrook

    I’m still trying to figure out this surname-challenged gentleman; if he truly believes the crap he spouts or is he just making a living filling a niche of psuedo-wannabe intellectual angry black guy on whack-job cable network

  • Brett McMicken

    i’m sure it’s racist that i don’t know (and, don’t care) who he is

  • pairadimes

    The existence of a creature like this Toure fellow is symptomatic of our headlong rush toward the end of the idea of America along the path of moral relativism. In an era where rent seeking on the media value chain is as easily accomplished with stupid pandering as it is with being a journalist, this is what we get.

    Too bad these race-pimps are nary untouchable by average people, Chris Matthews cuts you off and pulls the mic away, Madcow disease has a personal escort limo so she’s never seen in public and this guy (as you can see above) doesn’t have to answer to any of his critics because they don’t exist… one does not have to respond to racists you know!

  • LibLieExposer

    Touré the racist thug must have tourettes.

  • dwsmokin

    Nice thing about the word “moron”. It’s race neutral-it can apply to anyone.

  • Jack Deth

    This race hustler, Toure must be a huge fan of Adam Savage of ‘Myth Busters’ and his famous cover every argument quip:

    “I reject your reality and substitute my own!”

    Continuously painting himself into a corner while consistently denying the existence of the corner.

    Kind of lame, sad and pathetic, really.

    Every time Touré opens his mouth, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. spins a little bit faster.

  • scalzo

    MSNBC need you say anything else?

  • LordLieutenant

    I don’t understand how you Americans can let such out-and-our racists onto your screens without protest.

    Are the network sponsors comfortable bankrolling people who arrange their life in purely racial terms?

    The man is an obsessive racial supremacist who, rather than being chased out of polite society for holding views last popular in the 40s, is given a bloody TV show!! The man isn’t fit to serve on a Jury let alone appear on network TV.

    I’d be on the phone to the marketing department of every company advertising during the commercial breaks to ask if they see race in the same manner as the man they sponsor.

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      Lol @”not fit to serve on a jury”. So true.

    • Marcy Cook

      I’ve said this often we all need to hold the sponsor’s feet to the fire, then let’s see the MSM start to finally tell the truth or at least both sides of the issues when the sponsors start backing away and the millions these idiots make starts to dwindle.

      • GTFOBigGovt

        Also we should STOP giving money to ANY organization that doesn’t directly impact getting the country back to it’s roots. That includes orgs like Red Cross, United Way, even autism charities etc. Why waste the money when they support ALL the morons who are living the Blue State philosophy of central planning and government redistribution?

        .We should spend our money on 501c3 like conservative colleges for scholarships, create and support small groups in our community for home schooling, advancing conservative school board members, creating alternative PTA groups to show our presence at schools boards even if we don’t have kids, donate our time tutoring CIVICS and HISTORY if we don’t have $, even find conservative medical providers for our kids braces – an alternative “group plan”! Stop shopping at Whole Foods and Starbucks and give your money to the local grocer who isn’t political. Make your feelings KNOWN. Go to community meetings and speak UP! Don’t let fear of criticism chill our speech.

        If a guy in a bakery refuses to let a Democrat in, go order a ton of his stuff! Like mini Chick Fil A protests full time.

        It’s a strategy that PETA employs, if you can’t put the big entities out of business at least create and support small efforts to keep your group alive.

        No cable/sattelite tv with MSNBC or CNN, No purchasing of pop culture magazines – spend the money on conservative media to give them resources, no buying into pop culture crap from Rolling Stone or MTV. Shut off the television and refuse to purchase music and magazines for your kids that don’t agree with your values. It’s not unlike Beck’s efforts to build a counterculture. But it takes a huge effort – something I’m not so sure the average American can be bothered doing. I haven’t read Agenda 21 but there is probably a TON of action items we could get out of it.

        • Marcy Cook

          I’ve already started to do some of what you are suggesting. For those organizations like the Red Cross, United Way and few others I sent their fundraising appeals back to them and wrote “Obama will take care of you, don’t ask me for any money ever again.”

          • Pater Tempus

            I take it then that means if you or your loved ones are ever in need of emergency surgery, you will have your own personal blood supply stockpiled and will not be in need of any of the ARC’s resources…..

    • GTFOBigGovt

      How? Apathy. Self interest and laziness.

  • medicinewomantwo

    Why does anyone with an IQ greater than 40 listen to this crap.

    • SineWaveII

      You really just answered your own question

  • Rafael Eduardo Peña-Rios Riber

    is toure more annoying than chris matthews or thats just me?

    • GTFOBigGovt

      No, more annoying. Matthews is at least more entertaining and continually comes up with material you couldn’t dream up if you tried. Leg tingles, white men of property etc.

  • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

    Gee. It’s almost as if we’re not allowed to have opinions based off personal life experiences anymore. Not only not allowed, but crucified for having such opinions and *shock!* inner thoughts and feelings.

  • $1014973

    Kind of sad that the white equivalent of Tourde is the head of the KKK.

  • dkhilly

    So let me get this straight. Is he saying there are zero situations in the world that are un-racial? Wow! That must be a miserable existence to see the world that way.

  • Joseph Phillips

    Right… like the United Negro College Fund, NAACP, Black History Month, Black Panthers, BET…

  • Typewriterstreaming

    Toure, simply put you are a racist because you exploit fabricated instances of racism to incite anger and hatred. That is racism and it is a disgrace. Sometimes Toure, racism really does start at home. Denial is tough Toure, but try taking a look at your own.

  • Marcy Cook

    Is “righties” code word for Whitey?

  • GTFOBigGovt

    What the hell is that first tweet even saying? Anyway, We should dig out some old bashing of Condi Rice, replace the name with Susan and tweet them. Watch the RACIST! replies.

  • Andy Hebert

    When I se this guy write “righties”, all I can think is he is a hypocrite who means “whities” insead. Causing racial distress is why he gets paid.

  • SineWaveII

    Why does Toure make me think of Monty Python’s black knight?
    T:What race card?.
    The one right there you just played it,
    T: no I didn’t and you noticing is racist,
    There you just did it again,
    T:No I didn’t,
    What do you mean, it’s laying right there,
    T: that’s not my race card and you’re just a big racist,
    you did it AGAIN,
    T: no I didn’t……. etc

  • greywulf1064

    Race card denied, account overdrawn

  • SpinMeNot

    As Mark Levin might note, “Tourrette’s is at it again”

    Has anybody seen Tourrette’s and Tushie in the same room at the same time ? Sorry, just askin …

  • Justin Case

    Touré is the last practicing writer in the genre of The Theatre of the Absurd. He is to racial social commentary as Beckett is to “Waiting for Godot”.
