Kenya dig it? Professor Touré serves up a geography lesson [video]; Mockery ensues

Oh yes. Yes he did:

Let’s go to the videotape, shall we?

Transcript:

Here’s your Monday geography refresher: Kenya is located on the northern coast of Africa right next door to Somalia.

Northern. Coast.

Kenya

Aching sides!

Only one thing could make Touré’s geogra-fail even more delicious: mockery.

Never forget:

Bahahaha!

Man, it’s hard out there for a truther.

Fantastic.

Update:

For the record, Piers Morgan has weighed in on Touré’s Kenya problem:

From one twerp to another.

  • ceemack

    You guys…of COURSE Kenya is on the north coast of Africa.

    Next I suppose you’ll insist that New York DOESN’T border on Mexico. Sheesh.

    • Jd1367

      Of course, if he got his geography lessons from the president, he’d say Kenya was on the Gulf coast

      • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        Mombasa is an East Coast port, like Charleston or Norfolk!
        It needs Federal aid as much as they do!
        How else will Obama’s paternal relatives* manage to skim off the cream?

        * “Giddy up a oom Papa oom Papa Mau Mau,
        Giddy up a oom Papa oom Papa Mau Mau,
        Hi Ho Silver, a-w-a-a-a-a-a-y-y-y!”

        • Slugglife

          You just had to go low on the mau mau didnt you?

          • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Well, the bass singer did…

      • vetgal1970

        That’s the Golf Coast

      • Jerry Camp

        And one of the 57 states he was slated to visit…

      • Djuro Jebi

        Idjit . . . everyone knows Kenya is one of the Hawai’ian islands!

      • Sean Barrentine

        Hey now! Let’s not put him as coming from my neck of the woods, please! We don’t want him down here, either!

    • lainer51

      What? You mean Kenya is no longer one of the 57 states? Thank God for TouRAT… he keeps me informed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • CobraJet428

      Kenya on the north coast of Africa is where Guam winds up when it flips over.

    • mapache

      and that illegals entering the country are simply undocumented aliens….

    • Slugglife

      I wish new york bordered mexico.

  • Jd1367

    I think he deserves some credit for knowing it was in Africa. After all, this is Touré we’re talking about

    • http://WestValleyGreenHomes.com/ Eric Johnson

      Hmm, 1 in 7 chance for getting the continent right vs 1 in 4 chance of getting the direction right… What difference does it make?!!

      • Alastor

        What difference does it make … at this point (of the compass) ?

    • Scorpion

      Is that a person or a Syndrome?

  • Magnifico

    I thought Kenya was in Hawaii.

    • Zach Smith

      A lot of people make that mistake because Hawaii processes birth certificates for Kenya.

      • CatHerder

        Hahahahaha….

        • Djuro Jebi

          Agreed . . . HYSTERICAL!

      • Marvin Nelson

        Oh, SNAP!!

    • MarcusFenix

      Well played sir. Well played.

    • Djuro Jebi

      Kudos, you beat me to it!

  • Guest

    Tourè also thinks North Korea is just a little east of South Korea.

    • Scorpion

      That’s because he was facing Mecca.

  • Jonny Red

    You would think he would know where his lord and savior was born!

  • MNWoman

    He is simply preparing us for future generations…you know, where correct answers do not matter as long as they feel good about themselves.

    • Finrod Felagund

      “In the New Math, as you know, the important thing is to understand what you’re doing, rather than to get the right answer.” — Tom Lehrer, 1965

      • MarcusFenix

        And using base 8…don’t forget base 8.

        Love Lehrer BTW :)

        • Finrod Felagund

          “Base 8 is just like base 10, really, if you’re missing two fingers.”

      • MNWoman

        I agree with this to a certain extent that if you know the process and make a stupid, simple mistake at the end, at least you would know how to get the right answer if you were more careful.

        That said, if you are careless and get the wrong answer, you still shouldn’t get credit. In real life, that is not how things work.

        • TexasMom2012

          Actually, sometimes a problem can be several pages worth of calculations. It that case I think partial credit is prudent if the process is correct and a slight error in arithmetic has occurred. Makes it harder for the prof to grade but lets the student know they are on the right path…

  • MNWoman

    By the way, he cleared up his “incredible” comment about the flooded subways. He clearly meant incredible as being “not credible”, okay?

    • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      He probably had to think about it for a moment. Maybe the fact that the lights were still on (not shorted out) is what gave it away?

  • grais

    Has someone told him about his mistake, or can we assume he still doesn’t know?

    • MNWoman

      Does it really matter? It’s not like anyone (besides those of us watching the clip on Twitchy) saw it anyway.

    • brewerandpatriot

      That’s assuming someone at the NBC family of channels actually knows where Kenya is.

  • RevengeVoter

    Today i turned on Toure and he alerted me to this typical Fox News white male privilege.. #RACISM abounds: most white Americans don’t know a damn thing about Africa.. They assume Africa is one country?! Or they Africa is sideways with the east side on top, apparently? They can’t even be bothered to learn simple geography??

    …Wait.

  • Bozo Sapien

    Facts don’t matter to liberals. Morals don’t matter to liberals. Why should geography matter to liberals?

  • FreedomFighter

    I also learned from MSNBC the the planet Mars was made of nougat, soft caramel, and a milk chocolate coating.

    • vetgal1970

      And still displays the American flag placed there by the astronauts

    • CatHerder

      …with almonds.

  • Steve_J

    That’s like living in South Dakota and bordering Canada.

    • Elilla Shadowheart

      I’m sure we can get that to work. After all, I live in Ontario which borders Spain. Where we’re going we don’t have…oceans…

  • http://www.black-and-right.com/ IceColdTroll

    Don’t oppress him with your imperialist white-man Eurocentric geography!

  • vetgal1970

    It’s racist to own a globe. or look at one.

  • vetgal1970

    Only Flat Earthers own maps.

  • Finrod Felagund

    The sad thing is, Toure is probably one of the more educated liberals out there. Most are only vaguely aware that Africa even exists.

    • Jerry Camp

      And that it’s a continent and not a country…well, two countries: Africa and South Africa.

  • socalcon

    As it is Monday, I’d tend to give the guy a break– maybe Kenya was originally on the Northern coast of Africa; before the slave traders caused them to flee to the eastern coast-near Somalia? {see: Common Core}

  • Zach Smith

    Did I say north coast? Obviously, I meant west coast!

    • Jimmie

      With the history of South Africa’s legacy of apartheid.. no wonder the locals revolted.

  • http://www.nleomf.org/officers/ FlatFoot

    He knows one thing, and one thing only. Everything else is just an uneducated guess. But, lest we forget, even blind squirrels find a nut once in awhile [for future reference].

  • LinTaylor

    Toure, demonstrating as much awareness of geography as Drew Carey:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNT3BGvyePM

  • Maxx

    Being the race baiter that he is, it must burn Toure that his knowledge of geography is surpassed by a typical sixth grade private-school educated white child.

    • Finrod Felagund

      Which is why he’ll never appear on _Are You Smarter Than A Fifth-Grader?_.

  • http://www.nleomf.org/officers/ FlatFoot

    Touré Neblett’s ‘Best Day Ever! ®’ came the day of “Whitey” Bulger’s conviction.

  • jukin

    Toure is the smartest guy in any room, just ask him.

    • Jimmie

      Thanks for bringing us that message.. from his mom.

  • WhoDat

    Northern part of the eastern coast, maybe.

    • MarcusFenix

      Because that’s exactly what came out of his mouth…oh, wait…yeah. Nevermind.

      • Ronald Green

        It would appear that both these liberal tools need to go back to ‘skhool’ and try again.

    • grais

      ?!?!?!?!?

    • tops116

      This just in from Toure: “I’m sorry you didn’t get what I clearly implied by not using key words. Damn racists.”

  • NRPax

    I see Toure put down the shovel and grabbed the bull dozer.

  • FilleGitane

    It’s the capital of France.

  • DrSamHerman

    And Francis is the first Methodist Pope.

  • LR99

    He took Race-baiting instead of Geography in HS!

    • ObamaFail

      He’s great at race-baiting, so his race-baiting professor should love him.

  • Marvin Nelson

    Meh. North, east, same general area. After all Africa is a small country and Toure is a douchecanoe.

  • The Masked Avatar

    “Majority of foreigners come from other countries.” – Toure

  • TJ

    That was not ad lib, he is not that smart. That was in the teleprompter and doing his best version of Ron Burgundy in an attempt to act smart the prompter let him down.

  • cacman93

    I thought Kenya was our 57th state.

  • SpaceRacer423

    Careful Toure,
    Teleprompter skill like that will get you elected president.

  • arttie

    He is a LIP, low information person. That’s why he went into his line of work, everything else is much too difficult.

  • jamesben

    Well, to be ~fair~ Toure` did mention a “coast,” so, in the grandest Barack Hussein Obama “affirmative action” tradition – partial credit.

    Remember, the SAT’s are “racist.” And, what happened to his “other” name?

  • RockThisTown

    Toure’s ebonic geography. Real geography is hard!

  • SpaceRacer423

    Its been said that those who cant do, teach…… and those that cant teach read teleprompters on MSNBC,

    • WhoMeToo

      ….or in the White House.

  • MarcusFenix

    Oh come on guys…Toure was just promoting Common Core educational principles.

  • spaceycakes

    to be fair, he probably thought, that’s why they speak English in Kenya–’cause they’re so close to Englishland. LOL

  • stellatruman

    you know your a tool when Piers Morgan puts you in your place

  • HARP2

    Hey Toure.
    Can you see Italy from your hut ?

  • tjp77

    Kenya isn’t on the northern coast of Africa because of white privilege.

  • alanstorm

    Toure’s Syndrome is not pretty to watch…

  • BAW

    And yet people in the media as so convinced of their own brilliance they believe it is their duty in life to “enlighten” the rest of us. I don’t care if they’re stupid but I’ll be danged if I’ll listen to anything they preach. Still it is fun laughing at their ignorance.

  • bo1921

    Update: toure hopes it won’t tip over if too many people go there.

  • LegalizeShemp

    Toure keeps having a recurring nightmare where he’s trapped in a Velcro factory and there’s no way out.

    • Scorpion

      Or a fire hydrant factory where there’s no place to park.
      H/T Steven Wright.

  • cfc1905

    You guys are all nutz….Kenya is our 57th state…jeez, get a globe..

  • Humanary Stew

    I always thought Kenya was in the Pacific Ocean. Who knew…

    • tops116

      I hear it’s on the verge of tipping over like Guam. 😉

  • LegalizeShemp

    Looks like Toure is all Funk and no Wagnall.

  • Erik Bartlam

    Toure is like most Public Idiots…he’s not content to do what he’s good at (writing about music) instead he uses what talent he has as a springboard to talk about things he knows nothing about.

  • junkbondtrader41

    Ya, gotcha, “Toure!”

    I know Michelle’s distaste for salty language, but here’s a clip from the master, George Carlin, that’s always seemed appropriate to fling at ol’ “Toure!”

    http://www YouTube.com/watch?v=0kR89X9N55Q&t=0m40s

  • MaMa1

    I’m sure what he really meant is Kenya will be on the northern coast of Africa after global warming has melted the polar ice caps and raised sea levels all over the earth. Either that or your all raaaaaaaacist.

  • wickedgoodboy

    i wish we could be really be opportunistic and wait for toure to say something about ted cruz or sarah palin instead we must wast his stupid african geography blooper. but since he is the expert african american for suppression he does need to retake his cultural history class on african american culture . its official nelson mandela is embarrassed!!!!!!!!!!!

    • spaceycakes

      Nelson Mandela is a convicted terrorist that has been elevated to sainthood by gullible people

  • tops116

    Clearly that map was made by a white guy, so Toure feels no compulsion to listen to it.

    And at what point will Piers be denounced as racist for calling Toure a twerp?

  • Jack Deth

    Evidently, Toure’s African Studies courses didn’t touch on the England’s fading Empire and Communist influenced mercenary and domestic terrorism around E.O.K.A. (Ethiopia, Oman. Kenya and Aden) during the late 1950s and early 60s.

  • Michael Rice

    Maybe, he meant to say he could see Kenya from his front porch in North Africa.

  • Blake Waymire

    When you lose Piers Morgan…

  • Stephen L. Hall

    If you get drunk enough it could be north while you’re laying on your side looking at the map.

  • BlahBlah

    I know one person that could school Tourde on Kenya’s whereabouts. Just sayin’.

  • TocksNedlog

    Actually, Kenya is on the Gulf Coast, right next to Charleston, South Carolina, Savannah, Georgia and Jacksonville, Florida.

  • dragonash

    That’s where Obama told him it was located. He was also told it’s the 58th State.

  • CobraJet428

    Watch it, Tool-ray. Diane Feinstein will pull your journo-papers for being even too stupid for msnbc.

    • TocksNedlog

      There’s no such thing as “too stupid for MSNBC”.

  • TocksNedlog

    Hey, Touré, do you want to know where Kenya is? Here’s a hint: Kenya is where Barack Obama’s brother lives in poverty and had to ask conservative commentator Dinesh D’Souza for money to pay for an operation to save the life of his son, Barack Obama’s nephew.
    THAT’S where Kenya is!

    • Trudy Hill

      Exactly.

  • Jack_H

    Poor guy needs a refund for the money he spent on his GED.

  • gman213

    Toure…dude, sorry ..they’ve moved.

  • freeinaz

    Toure’ your wrong and now that I’ve caught you in this lie how soon with the race card be thrown at me.

  • Frank DiSalle

    I thought Kenya was in Hawaii – you know, where Obama was born?

  • seemorejustice

    It’s just the Progressive educational version of ‘New Math” and it’s called ‘New Geography’! If you’re close, like say, same Continent, then you are correct!

  • cglg24

    Toure is right. This has to do with a polar shift due to global climate change.

  • Stevie10703

    well, if you believe in “Common Core” as long as Toure explained how he got to that point clearly, then he is right, even if he is wrong. Give the little guy a participation trophy.

  • Scorpion

    Kenya is getting worse than Chicago. Rumor has it that the “O” is going to put a border fence around Hawaii by executive order.

  • GMMI

    Apparently he took Geography at the same school Obumphuck did.

  • DrunkReport.com

    Well its…kindov….sort of…. okay. no :/

  • Anthony Clay

    lol obama son, surprised that he is ignorant, just axe him a question

  • Sam

    I don’t know how you can sit through a show with Toure’ the Black*. I don’t think I would last 5 minutes.
    *Since his racial identity and racial politics are the most important things in the universe to him this is how I refer to him.

  • WackoTurds

    Holy Moly, the President’s birthplace just keeps moving around.

  • Cmate

    Geo-studyz is hard.

  • Montjoie

    North is relative. You Eurocentric racists think North is “up” where Europe is, but really it’s over there just to the right of Kenya.

  • Sturmritter

    Saying Kenya was on the “EAST” coast of Africa would be “Racist”, right?

  • Idl

    I’m surprised his ears don’t just slam together; there’s absolutely nothing in this guy’s noggin to keep them apart.

  • DirtyDave

    And Sarah Palin can still see Putin’s boot print on Obama’s rear, too. It’s all on how you look at it.

  • j Ray

    He’s an ignorant clown – the perfect MSNBC employee.

  • RanierWest

    ha ha they brought back the sandy scuba picture he tweeted

  • Doc Farmer ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    NAWWWWW!!! Kenya is one of the Hawai’ian Islands!

  • Gutz_Otoole

    Pop culture is ignorance on parade so Mr. Neblett’s error helps him fits right in. If he had been correct in his geography it would have only diminished his credibility among the restless tribesmen of the HipHop jungle. I also understand why Neblett wants to be known as Touré; his public has such a low median IQ that otherwise he would be constantly confused with a snack cracker.

    What galls me is Piers Morgan, that tower of intellect, putting the boot in while his colleague is down

  • Nana Taylor

    Dear @Toure,
    I bet Dr.Ben Carson (you remember, the one you said had “ignorant ideas”? I bet he would know where Kenya was.

    • AZGunslinger

      I’ll go you one better and say that even Sarah Palin knows where Kenya is.

  • Greg Collins

    To point out that Kenya is not on the north coast of Kenya is racist.

  • Trudy Hill

    Uhh he also moved Somalia. And the diver was photoshopped. Look at the shiny puddles of water on the right side of floor. Plus the lights are all on.

    • andycanuck

      That’s the Kenyan subway system because Touré hears it rains down in Africa.

  • Tiggeh McLoud

    Give Toure a break. If he accepted that Kenya wasn’t on the north coast he’d have to accept that the President isn’t a northerner and is from the evil, evil south. Kidding, I don’t believe the president is from Kenya; he’s from Wonderland, where wishing something so makes it true.

  • 66

    Toure tilts everything so far left including maps, thereby making the east coast of Africa look like its on the top. He’s no fool: the top of a map is always north.

  • rennyangel2

    All Dems. must be geographically challenged. ozero thinks there are 57 states and Savannah is on the Gulf Coast so what is the big deal that Kenya is NOT an African Mediterranean country? I bet Toure and ilk don’t know what Israel is either.

  • TitusPullo

    He works for MSNBC folks. Facts could get you fired over there.

  • Bandit

    But he’s way smarter than everyone else

  • AZGunslinger

    It looks like Toure was smoking ganja rather than dancing, playing the bongos, and chucking spears during Kwanza.

  • DavidL

    Reading the teleprompter, just like his boss.

  • gtwreck

    North–South–East–West
    “What difference does it make?”
    He got Africa right. you mean that is not enough for you.

  • 500_lb_Gorrila

    How could he get the location of his idols birthplace wrong? Heh…

  • rbeccah

    Toure must have attended the same school as Barack Obama, who can’t tell the difference between the Gulf Coast and the Atlantic coast.

  • kbielefe

    Well, Libya officially doesn’t exist since the Benghazi attacks. It’s racist to mention Egypt since Obama doesn’t want to take sides there. Liberals wish Sudan would go away because of human rights violations. So Kenya *is* on the Northern coast of politically correct Africa.

    • AZGunslinger

      Well done, sir! Well done, indeed!!

  • andycanuck

    Did he also say it was next door to Peruvia?
