Touré managed to bring the national conversation on gun violence to a grinding halt tonight with a tweet that, while untrue, might have stirred some controversy in December.

Even Touré isn’t bothering to follow up on this one.

    Race should be brought up in the gun debate! Not the race of the victims, but the race of the murderers. Look at the stats for any city and the picture becomes very clear. Chicago for instance looks something like:
    Black 75% Hispanic 20% White 5%
    It’s not scary black guns, but scary black thugs that are the problem.

    Hey Toure, the color of a child’s skin has never stopped a bullet from a gun.

    Can the race-baiting foolishness for once in your life. Your employer went 24-7 on Zimmerman as soon as it became “fashionable” so spare us your hypocritical carefully orchestrated “outrage, ” unless of course, you can point me to all the shows you and your network have done regarding Chicago’s 2012 crime rate. If you had any balls, you’d leave the comfort of your MSNBC studio and do a remote from Chicago about gun/gang violence but I suspect, we’ll see a new Pope before we see you anywhere near Garfield Park.

    If Lanza, a White person, and murdered a bunch of Bla ck children there wouldn’t have been any mention of it? Bwaaaahahaha. That’s a good one Toure, that’s a real knee slapper.

  • offset81

    Hope one day this guy can actually hear what he is saying. But I doubt it. I would hate to go through life with that kind of thinking.

  • Rusty Shackleford

    I think he’s right. Black kids murdered everyday by criminals let out of jail by libtard judges. It’s only when white people are hurt does it matter to the MSM. The same MSM that decries racism but is pretty complicit with it itself. The same media that doesn’t trust honest inner city folks to protect themselves with a firearm anyways. Just another way to demonize the NRA and us law abiding gun owners. Democrats can’t get off the anti-gun plantation and heaven help a *gasp* pro-2a person of color like Colion Noir.

    • michael s

      I’m glad you know of Colion Noir. I support Toure.

        Colion is badass. Gun owners are a diverse group even if Huffpo and Piers say otherwise. Us Maryland shooters are a diverse group (Black, Asian, Jewish) and we’re proud of that.

    Toure made me really mad when he talked about it on The Cycle. yes I do watch MSNBC and no, I’m not a liberal.

  • TocksNedlog

    So, by Touré’s twisted logic, the ONLY reason that Obama is pushing for new gun control legislation is because the kids murdered at Sandy Hook were white?

  • QBallBrasil

    Well, Toure brings up a point. I mean if Lanza decided to enter MSNBC & target pinheads, the nation would be discussing what new quality channel would replace the cable line up.

  • CatHerder

    I can only hope he was drunk when he made that statement. Sandy Hook ignited a firestorm of controversy, but if those kids and teachers had all been Black? With a White shooter? There would have been coast-to-coast riots in every major city, guaranteed!

  • Joel A. Edge

    Unfortunately; he’s right. (First time I’ve ever agreed with the man) I would suggest he bring up the subject with the members of his profession and the Democrat party and ask why. Seems like the issue was brought up by the grievance and division wing of the Democrat Party to make political capital and little else.

  • http://twitter.com/Stimulus4U Marty Luther

    Toure is a perfect example of how nature keeps providing better idiots to replace the obsolete ones.

    @Toure Right, because no one covered or talked about the Trayvon Martin murder, right? You can’t be serious. Can’t be.
    3:26 AM – 16 Feb 13

    Trayvon wasn’t murdered.

    • michael s

      But you believe David James was murdered I bet?

      • Gallatin

        Hmmmmmm, why did I have to do a search to figure out what you were talking about? Searching for “David James” didn’t bring me any results for anyone by that name being killed. Searching for “David James killing” did finally bring me some results.

        Why wasn’t this story splashed for days all over the national media? As I said this is the first time I even heard the name.

        And you have judged wrong about me, I read the circumstances of the story and I am willing to say that David James wasn’t murdered either. Mr. James should have let Mr. Dooley walk away as he was doing. I’m willing to say that Mr. Dooley was defending himself.

        Now you move along because you’re simply showing your libturd bias and preconceived notions about the world around you.

    if somebody ran over Toure with a mack truck, i would buy stock in whatever company manufactured them.

  • notenoughtime

    Toure is an a**. As parents and human beings with a soul, when we heard about the shooting, no one thought about the race of the students only the fact that they were children.

  • Dale Birmingham

    Half your race is in jail or making rap records.. NEXT

  • Agent_Zeero

    This explains why Nibblett always does strikes in the daily shootings in Chicago. Wait! What?? He doesn’t?

  • Shofar

    Gun control is about race, and I don’t think people really understand that. The idea of banning or outlawing ALL guns like some of the politicos in DC and other places want to do will have a negative and dangerous result in areas that need protection the most – the inner city.

    How many inner city families have an old shotgun or handgun that belonged to dad or grandpa,and keep that weapon as a means of protection? Making any of these firearms illegal will make people that have them criminals, and unable to protect their families and property.

    In the inner city (where I do chose to live) there are scores of families that have used a firearm to stop an intruder or keep some thug off their property. Do they call the police? No. Why? Because most of them do not trust the police. Therefore they take care of problems themselves, and only call 5-0 when something is stolen or someone shot.

    To take away these people’s ability to defend themselves is about as racist as can be. The inner city is not a place for the faint of heart, or the weak willed. You have to be strong, and be able to protect yourself, your family, and what is yours.

  • Johnny Blade

    Well its been going on in Chicago for some time now… any reason you fail to bring the subject up Toure?

  • Jack Deth

    I think Toure was whiny, anger Tweeting after being politely slapped around the room by an older, wiser, concealed carrying African American woman during a Gun Control lecture at St. Louis University:

    Absolutely priceless!

  • Alex Pelton

    I used to reply to these people’s messages on twitter, but then I realized how pointless it was. You can reach every day liberals, but these people are so stuck in their iedology that there is no way on this earth they’re going to change. That doesn’t mean don’t try, that just means that I’m not going to.

  • Michael Rice

    Actually he is right. The conversation would be about some non existant hate crime motivation and the riots in the “peaceful” black neighborhods that were some sort of DJANGO Unchained in real life. Sorry if I bothed the spelling of the movie. I don’t follow crap.

    • MikeStuckInMass

      Nope, you got it right. But you did botch the spelling of “botched”. lol ;o)

  • J.N. Ashby

    He does have a point though. Most of the shootings in Chicago are black-on-black and he and his ilk don’t give a crap about it either. Didn’t he jump on the anti-gun politic train right after those Connecticut white kids were killed?
