Touré: Blaming Delbert Belton and Chris Lane deaths on racism part of Right’s ‘vile new tactic’

MSNBC’s Touré is often a bundle of misinformation and twisted logic, and his latest commentary is no different:

In the video, Touré laments those on “the Right” who dare insinuate that the killings of Chris Lane or Delbert Belton were racial to anywhere near the degree that Touré claims the Trayvon Martin shooting was racially motivated, and he also heroically takes on several straw men along the way.

This rebuttal tears down Touré’s argument brick by brick, foundation and all:

However, a fellow MSNBC host agrees with Touré (what a shock):

Of course, this is also the same person who referred to Detroit as “America’s most libertarian city,” so take it for what it’s worth.

  • The Petulant Klown

    Talk about the pot calling the kettle black!

    • Stephen L. Hall

      I must take a certain exception to that oft misused phrase. The pot and the kettle, traditionally different sized cauldrons which were both cast-iron black, the phrase signifies blaming another for what the speaker does his self.

      But, there is no, repeat no, evidence of systemic racism on the conservative side, while there is extensive evidence of racism on the so called progressives. So perhaps the proper phrase for these slanderers would be “the pot calling the china black.”

      • IceColdTroll

        Interesting and valid point sir, you are right, it does get misapplied to instances of what are nothing more than projection, when the accusing party is himself guilty of that which he wrongly attributes to the other. And in any case, we cannot HELP but observe, that speaking of black pots and kettles is of course . . . .

        ….well , you know.

    • BlahBlah

      That’s racist, sir.

  • Txgirlinnh

    Yawn-yes Mr. perpetually outraged, we know in your little world white (and apparently white-hispanic) conservatives, are the ONLY people capable of racism.

    • Texan357

      Isn’t it interesting that the label “racism” is racist itself – given an adhesive that sticks exclusively to pale flesh?


    If you read up on what Touré did back when he was in college, you’ll understand that he is nothing more than a Black Supremacist.

    So where is the uproar against MSNBC?

    • The Petulant Klown

      Touré Neblett and Barack Obama both grew up in the middle class and attended fancy prep schools. Both of them became racially radicalized as adults.

    • PatriotRG

      A Black Supreme or Supremist ?

  • waltermitty2012

    How was the Trayvon Martin case about race? The FBI investigated and found no racial bias in Zimmerman. Nor did Florida charge Zimmerman with a hate crime. Again, how was the Trayvon Martin case about race?

    • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

      Ask the Sheriff off Notting-Holder….He’s digging beneath every rock to keep this case alive… Jawamax 8<{D}

      • brewerandpatriot

        Holder has exclusive audio of Zimmerman saying how much he loves white chocolate but doesn’t care for the dark stuff. It’s about to get real.

    • Damien Johnson

      because the media said it was.

  • Stephen L. Hall

    The amount of fear in Toure’s voice is palpable; he is scared to death that the left is going to lose the “racist” mantra, as they are called on their racist hypocrisy. Like he really went on a diatribe to discourage Republicans from what he calls self-destruction.

  • logicrules

    Ok.I am sick and damned tired of this intellectually dishonest, uni-name Prince wannabe POS. And if you ask me nicely, I will tell you what I REALLY think.

    His is not an intellect… it is a usellect, or an excusellect, or an intellectual prostitutionellect. The man couldn’t pass a polygraph exam if the only question were ” is fire hot?”.

    The only more disgusting man in media is whoever the fool is that signs his paycheck and can still look himself in the mirror.

    • The Petulant Klown

      His full name is Touré Neblett.

      I love your comment!

  • therealguyfaux

    “The Caller also criticized Touré’s use of a hoaxed hate crime at
    Emory as a rationale for a list of demands against the university, even
    after the crime’s ostensible target, Sabrina Collins, admitted that her
    accusations were a hoax of her creation. Touré defended The Fire This Time as “an important black voice on campus” and “a form of community building.”
    (Courtesy Wikipedia.)

    Now, let’s see– hoax and “building a community”; where have we heard that recently?
    See what you started, douche bag?
    I’d like to write a story, about the result of your next excursion into Fantasyland for the purposes of s#it-stirring– I’ll call it Toure: Getting Fired This Time.

  • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

    Self Defense vs. Racism… Toure’ has NO CLUE as to the difference, the way he compares these cases…. I’d donate a Brain Cell to him, but his empyt skull would probably reject it. Jawamax 8<{D}

      Actually— the donated braincell would die— pining away in solitary loneliness.

  • Clete Torres

    If Belton and Lane aren’t about race, neither is St. Skittles.

    STFU, Turdé.

    h/t Catherder.

    • NRPax

      For the record: I like the term St. Skittles as much as I like Rachel Corrie being called St. Pancake. Good humor, stays clean and you know who is being discussed.

      • Clete Torres

        Yep, been calling her that almost immediately since she very stupidly stood in front of that IDF D9 Cat and paid for her poor decision.

        For some reason, the Wikipediacs don’t like it when you edit the Rachel Corrie page to add the St. Pancake description…

        • NRPax

          Bravo, sir. Well done.

          • Clete Torres

            And you.

    woooooow … what antipsychotic med is he abusing this week?

    • WhoMeToo

      I don’t know… but I wish he’d take a whole bottle.

  • Gallatin

    Okay I want to make sure I understand this correctly; a white person commits a crime against a black person it is because he is a RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACIST.

    But when a black person commits a crime against a white person it is because the victim was a RAAAAAAAAAAAAACIST

    • BlahBlah

      You pretty much got it.

    • dagnytaggart

      You are close, but if they can, they try to blame the victim in a black on white crime and call the white guy the criminal.

      • Stephen L. Hall

        They have already started doing that: “Spokane police have indicated that Belton enraged the teens when he tried to fend them off, which prompted them to beat him. . . .” —

        • Damien Johnson

          Wow really? I thought the left were the main ones who don’t like to blame the victim.

        • michael s

          Not so good to disparage and attack the character of a victim now , is it?

          • Stephen L. Hall

            Now the murderers are accusing their victim of drug dealing.

    • Maxx

      Scroll down through all the down votes in this piece’s comments.

      Toure’, is that you? 😉

    • Richard Jefferies

      Correct! Welcome to the new America. Even when the perpetrator has a slew of publicly viewable anti-white slurs and admissions of criminal activity against whites for being white, he is still a victim and the white victim was asking for it because he was emitting racism (like a dog whistle).

      • michael s

        Centuries of injustice created this.

        • Richard Jefferies

          No, decades of criminal apology created this.

  • stillinthe60s

    Trayvon Martinlutherking did not involve racism and here’s how it’s provable to even the biggest “Koolaid” drinkers in the country. Holder and the DOJ did not pursue civil rights charges against Zimmerman. If there had been racism involved do you think Holder wouldn’t have brought the full weight of the government on top of our nation’s first “white” Hispanic? End of story. Nice try Toure’! Next!

    • R.C.

      The recorded 911 call he had to be asked about the possible race. At that point he thought the perp was black, but was not sure. There was no hate in that man, as the evidence shows.

  • stellatruman

    only thing vile is Toure and the network that employs him

  • Thomas, Snarkmaster General

    Of course there was more proof Lane’s attackers were racists than there was George Zimmerman was…

    Oh, wait. We’re not supposed to know that. Carry on!

  • Gregor Eisenstein

    Somebody, somewhere, please…get Toure’ a first…last…whatever, second name so he doesn’t always feel so oppressed.

  • Spasmolytic

    Ignoring black violence is ‘vile’.

    • R.C.

      Yea, but when its the Crackers that made them do it, well, its not their fault.

  • tjack

    The more people like toure bring up Trayvon Martin the better the chance that Trayvon’s past will enter the conversation and the sooner people on the left will see that Trayvon wasn’t that far away from becoming just like Chris Lane’s murderers. I’m no longer surprised or outraged by toure’s tactics.

  • Stupid Republic

    Vegas is laying 3-2 odds that Toure is the only black person in his neighborhood.

    • therealguyfaux

      He lives in Fort Greene, in Brooklyn NY.
      He may be one of the last black people there, as the neighborhood is now all gentrified with white Limo-Libby artsy-fartsies moving in.
      So you may be technically correct, but for the wrong reason.
      But hey, those are his kind of whiteys.

      • Stupid Republic

        That’s precisely what I meant. The idiot went to some tony Boston area prep school, played tennis and belonged to an all-white fraternity in college. He acts whiter than most white people.

      • IceColdTroll

        He may live in a white neighborhood, but I hear some of his best friends are colored!

  • Karl Winrich

    Hey Toure think about this….

    Trayvon was shot to death while in the act of assaulting another individual at night in a residential district.

    Chris Lane was shot to death in the back while walking down the sidewalk in a commercial district.

    And you claim that the right tried to vilify Trayvon, he already was the villian knucklehead.

    There is NO comparison between the Martin and Lane murder cases.

  • Rick Bowser

    Toure Neblett… One of the few people that could make Howard Stern look like Walter Cronkite or Paul Harvey.

  • ryanabe

    That’s right Toure, everything is racist – especially your low ratings.

  • JeffWRidge

    The left really hates to take their own medicine. They cry racism if someone on the right eats the white cream filling out of an Oreo cookie before they eat the chocolate cookie. Point out actual racism and they deny it because the color differences in the victim and racist is reversed from what they want it to be.

  • ObamaFail

    This racist piece of gutter trash needs to be taken off tv. He cries racism for any reason, especially when no racism is involved. But when racism really happens? This weasel and the rest of the scum like him want to ignore it. When white liberals were coming out in force to call Stacey Dash a “ni**er whore” because she dared to step off the plantation racist Democrats expected her to stay on, scum like Toure and Al Sharpton ignored it. When white liberals came out in force to call Ben Carson or Larry Elder “house Ni**ers” because they dared to speak out against Obama, scum like Toure ignored it.
    Now, when there is actual freaking proof that a white man was killed by a black piece of human trash, Toure wants to whine when it’s pointed out that it was a race killing? Sorry Toure, but if you liberal scum are going to cry racism for false reasons, then you have no right to complain whenever we get mad when REAL racism happens.

    Let’s not forget you liberal scum trying to make a hero out of a common thug, who died while trying to kill a man, but now you don’t think race should be an issue? You’d have the right to say that if the white guy’s killer hadn’t had been tweeting about nasty white people the DAY BEFORE he decided to kill a man.

  • Maxwell

    CJ 101: 90% of black murder victims are murdered by black people. 6% more than white on white murder rates. You should talk about that if you want to further African-Americans in this country, and pin poit the cause.

    • Stephen L. Hall

      The most telling statistic is to compare the number of murders committed to the percentage of the population by race, ignoring the race of the victim.

  • John Alvarado

    I wonder how many of his fellow liberal colleagues said Trayvon Martin’s death was racial?

  • Voice of reason

    Idiot can’t even bring himself to admit racism right in front of his racist face. Irrelevant loser.

  • Mekadave

    My god, I’m so sick of this brainless, pompously-self-singlenamed leftist hypocrite. I can’t even bring myself to make a snarky comment. He tires me.

  • Lamontyoubigdummy

    Yes, Toure. Absolutely. But us “vile” folk are curious…

    Cops. Cars parked miles deep. Car lights blazing. Out the cars, walking around, armed with long guns in full view. LITERALLY lining the streets of Chicago so kids can get to their first day of school without being shot dead by blacks because of the evil white Tea Party.

    Cops stay awful busy in Chi-Town…gun murders ‘n all.

    Who does Chicago tap on the second day of school?

    The National Guard?

    Chicago has the strictest gun laws in the nation. What gives Toure? And could you discuss this with Piers Morgan?

    Going over to the CNN building to talk to Piers is just like MSNBC. It’s all white folk, you drink from a separate water cooler, and pi$$ in a separate toilet. You’ll love it.

    If you smile and/or dance, you get a cookie.

  • Maxx

    Toure has such an obsession with color, it must kill this moron to have to pour a glass of white milk into a glass each morning, unless of course he immediately rushes to the shelf to grab the Quick.

  • IceColdTroll

    Man this is weird. There’s a screen name up there, Freeman Gadsden. It reminded me of something and it took a minute to click — there was a man, Freeman Gosden, who was one of the creators of the Amos & Andy program back in the ’30s!

  • Thought Criminal #1

    Welcome to Obama’s Progressive America. Where a black can openly announce their racism for all the world to see, go out and kill a random, innocent white man and it is racist to call out the killer’s professed racism.

  • Victoria Richardson

    The teen that killed the Australian guy wrote on facebook or twitter that he hated white people and that white people are nasty. That’s not racists? So two black teens choose a Caucasian senior out of no where? Come on give me a flippin break.

  • Bemani Dog

    As usual, his statement suggests it’s impossible for Blacks to be racist. Which is, in and of itself, racist.

    • NRPax

      A few years back, I was in a debate with a black co-worker who claimed that a white person and a black person could not have an argument without the white man using a racial slur. I replied if he was saying that all white people all the time would react that way. When he confirmed that he was saying just that, I asked if he could see just how racist that statement was.

      The result was the human equivalent of a BSOD. I was proud.

  • PatriotRG

    yes its a vile tactic – we should behave and keep quiet when whites are slaughtered by blacks but wear sack cloth and ashes when a black is killed by a diet coke white.

    Tourretes realizes this is something that he and his type cant win. Blacks kill whites 3 x more than whites kill blacks. Blacks rob and rape whites at astronomical numbers compared to whites robbing and raping blacks.

    I think every single black on white crime should be put directly in the leftis/black progressive faces. Make them own those crimes every time. Swamp them with those crimes. There is no shortage of them after all.

  • MohammedTheTeddyBear

    Personally, I stand, shoulder-to-shoulder, with Tourette Kibbles&Bits on this!!

    How DARE conservatives mention FACTS to leftist vermin like him?!? How can leftists win if this keeps up? I asks ya, man……..

  • michael s

    Rockne Newell Ryan Carnan Jared Rent kill and wound several in white on white. crimes, minimal to no outrage. Kangaroo Jack gets killed all we hear is racism by people who sat they’re tired of race and the race. card being used. As Justin Timberlake said cry me a river.

    • MarcusFenix

      Because calling Lane by the name “Kangaroo Jack” doesn’t come across as insensitive, wrong, disrespectful or somehow latent with racism of some sort, eh?

      Martin is shot by a Hispanic man. Race baiters like Al Sharpton end up placing the blame on White people. 2 black guys and 1 White guy murder one Australian man, and yet…somehow, those 2 black guys (who posted nothing but racist garbage on their social media feeds) aren’t racist, even though they killed him -because-, and not despite of, the fact that he was white.

      If you’re going to use your race card, at least make sure your credit limit isn’t drawing off an account that’s already morally bankrupt.

    • Marjorie

      Who ARE you? You cannot formulate a coherent sentence, you cast slurs against an innocent murder victim and then play the tired race card. I’ve read your many posts (most of which need a translator) and cannot fathom what points you are trying to make. Most people here are genuinely concerned about the racial division in our country and are willing to engage in intelligent debate and offer possible solutions to heal the rift. Most of us were not concerned with the color of a person’s skin until several years ago when the race-baiters crawled out of their holes and started screaming “victim” and you, sir, are as guilty are they are.

        • Marjorie

          Yes…there is a double standard…we are called “racist” whenever we don’t agree with the President. The President selectively comments on “white on black” crime but is strangely silent about “black on white” crime. He could be a uniting force in this country if he chose to do so but instead he continues to listen to Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson et al who make their living by preaching victimization. They do not allow our black brothers to see that the sources of the problem lies within their own communities. Only they can make it better. “Whitey” (at least most of us) will pitch in and help. It is in the interest of our country to be united…we are, after all, Americans.
