“White leaders” like Don Lemon?

null

What in the world is MSNBC’s Touré talking about?

After some blowback, Touré offered a “clarification” that wasn’t really a clarification:

Oh, that helps, except not really.

Katie Pavlich took Touré to task:

This is classic Touré:

We can judge who has been “failed by society” based on pants level? If anybody except Touré said that he might accuse them of profiling. However, you don’t have to remotely make sense to be on MSNBC.

    I blame Toure’s white half for white on white violence. Does that make me racist?

    • IMPEACH_BOBO

      First off Toure is just a RAClST POS anyway just like all the commentators on MSNBC like Melissa Perry, Michael Dyson, Keith Ellison, Al Sharpton, Tameron Hall, etc. who blame whites for all their problems !!! Second thing I noticed about Toure is his picture he uses for his tweeter account, I guess he misses being white or something !! Thats one of the problems with mixed race babies you never know what you will end up with when they grow up just like in Toure’s case !! Just look at O.J.s kids, GROSS he had with Nicole Simpson !!!!

    • Jay Stevens

      Blaming either half of Touré for anything is racist.

    • Godless Paleolibertarian

      Yuck he’s half white?

    They must have incentives in their contracts at MSNBC that give bonuses for stupid statements. They all seem to be in a constant battle to out-stupid each other

  • ember

    What idiot is responsible for putting a mic in front of Toure’s pie hole? That person needs a wedgie.

    • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

      Just a wedgie?…… Toure is the poster child for mixed race kids who grow up having lived outside black culture over compensating by making absolutely everything about guilt-ing and shaming whites, for well… just breathing..

      If Toure has such an issue with whites expecting the same standards of civility and non violence from blacks, as they do other whites… maybe he should explain why exactly, he lowers the bar for blacks so low, he’s excusing the racist knockout game fad so popular in all black teen circles..

      We expect, men to act like men, regardless of race..

      Toure, expects racism and violence from only blacks, then excuses it..

      so who’s the racist here?

  • Richard J Sunkle

    There was a time when blacks weren’t encouraged to be a separate “culture”. Men like George Washington Carver didn’t go out of his was to prove himself to be different, he just went out of his way to prove himself as a fine American.

      • http://lordfoggybottom.com/ BlahBlah

        Segregation is alive and well, except it is self imposed. And what I notice is that it is more prevalent in “melting pots” like NYC than down south.

        • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

          It is self imposed, then the whining commences because these neighborhoods lack the tax base to support decent schools..

          When black kids harass and bully other black kids for getting good grades and “acting” white.. you know they’re learning their racism at home…

          Everything I’ve ever done in my life, there were people of other races there who excelled.. who sometimes set the standard.. so it’s not potential.. The Flight Sgt. of the Alpha Flight was a decorated man, tournament karate champion and legend among the Airmen, of all races.. We didn’t care he was black, the man was awesomeness squared..

          the old ethic, don’t just get by, but be BETTER than your competitors.. died sometime around the beginning of the great society, and making welfare, food stamps contingent on there being no man in the house.. the government trained generations that not having dad around meant you got help..

          Struggling families got nothing..

          50 years later.. single mom families are the norm, and these mom’s often, can’t cope with mentor-less teen males growing up feral with street thugs and dealers their “role models”

          Hope LBJ is smoking an extra turd in Hell for that.

  • H50 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Must be exhausting to be Torret. All that angst about society failing young black men.

    Got news for ya pal, society is also failing young brown, white and purple young men. In fact, you’re part of the problem with society and why it fails. Idiot.

    Interesting.

    I don't see enough white people on my TL caring about white on white violence. That's sad. It's an important issue. #SOS— Touré (@Toure) December 9, 2013

    • ObamaFail

      The media doesn’t care about white people being killed, especially if they are killed by blacks. Hell, a black person kills a white person for being white (like Chris Lane), and liberal trash ignore it because there is no profit to be made and no race riots to incite. Hey MJ, why don’t you libs care about black on black crime or black on white crime?

      • Matt

        Don’t know what a lib thinks. If anything like Toure, it can’t be much.

  • Arkuy The Great

    I keep pointing out that the leaders of the Civil Rights Movement were not gangsta thugs, drug dealers or welfare queens. They were doctors, lawyers, businessmen and minsters. They were professionals who took it as a given that they had to be responsible adults and lead by example. Hence those men and women are worthy of being admired and emulated today by everyone. Slackers like this wannabe Stokely Carmichael cannot hold a candle to them and are worthy of nothing but contempt!

  • PeterP

    Toure takes it personally when people cite DOJ statistics that show that black on black crime is an epidemic that’s destroying black communities. He assumes that if someone points out the truth about the ridiculously high black on black crime rate that that person must be a racist. In other words, even truths that reflect poorly on blacks must be silenced. This, apparently, is good for black people. Or maybe it’s just good for Toure.

    Toure, I have a question for you. If society is so racist, how did you, a black man, get to where you are in your professional career? GE is clearly managed by and employs many, many white people.

  • ObamaFail

    Here’s a fact that libs like Toure hate to see, because how can they cry about the white man trying to exterminate the black man when nearly all black people murdered these days are by other black people?

  • bluewaternavy

    As one that is mixed race (not that has anything to do with it) I can assure you both my parents would have kicked my a** bloody if I ever wore my pants about my kneecaps.
    Toure (or whoever the hell he is) thinks society is to blame-something I call BS on.
    Black on black crime is obliterating Black society. Plenty of people have pointed that out. If only the so-called black leaders would listed…..but they won’t.

    • NRPax

      both my parents would have kicked my a** bloody if I ever wore my pants about my kneecaps.

      A former co-worker of mine told me a story about a phone call he got from a neighbor. Said neighbor saw the co-worker’s eldest son with his pants hanging low and told him “You know your daddy doesn’t like you wearing your pants like that.” Kid yanked them back up hard enough to leave friction burns.

      He told the neighbor that the next time he saw it to call him so he knew he would have to leave early to beat the kid.

  • JR48

    I’m trying to imagine having a serious conversation as to whether or not adults need to not have their pants bagging around their behinds…and I can’t do it.

    One of the many things that is wrong with our society is that we have conversations about things that are painfully obvious which gives stupidity credibility.

      But what are the values of those homes?

      • Guest

        What I do know is that, in the South, a home valued at $75,000.00 would cost you three times that up north or out west…..
        Since it was the census, I’d also guess the people living in these homes were proud enough to say that they OWNED them.

      • 0bamasnought

        In Washington, about $300,000.
        Oregon isn’t far behind.

    He’s correct. Where were they on Jennifer Martel’s murder by 15 yr career criminal Jared Remy? Where were they on Ralph Wald’s SYG acquittal? Where are they on the Barbour’s? The newlywed couple that killed Troy Laferrara for the “thrill of it”? Where are they on 72 yr old Ronald Westbrook killed by Joe Hendrix just for seeking help,after being lost and wandering for miles? I could go on and on and on.

      • tops116 ✓Quipper

      • michael s

        Isn’t white on white violence a worthy topic of discussion. That’s my point.

        • Zach Smith

          So what is your point about it?
          Anyone can read through a big city police blotter and make a list of white-on-white crime, but they can make a much longer list of black-on-black crime. You would be hard pressed to find many instances of white-on-black crime, but people like Touré would like to make you think it is epidemic.

          • michael s

            You just want to gloss over white on white violence. Just like Limbaugh and O’Reilly as Toure mentioned.

          • Zach Smith

            I am sure that with sufficient taxpayer money, and draconian restrictions on civil liberties, that the already fairly low level of white-on-white crime could be virtually eradicated. Is that what you would like?

            Is that what you would like?

    • tops116 ✓Quipper

      Good rule of thumb, Mikey: whenever you agree with someone, that just damages their case. It doesn’t help when you blather on with a handful of examples and act as if that’s somehow definitive. It’s about as smart as talking about “pulling up pants” after starting a conversation about violence.

      • michael s

        I’m glad you acknowledged the incorrect “pulling up pants” point of that harpy Katie Pavlich. The issue was the lack of condemnation of white on white violence.Is that not a topic deserving of discussion? If I brought up black on black crimes or black on white crimes,it wouldn’t be considered”blather on with a handful of examples”.

    • NRPax

      I could go on and on and on.

      And you usually do.

      • michael s

        Why shouldn’t examples of white on white violence be discussed?

        • NRPax

          Oh I agree. But the thing is, the topic of this post is Toure’s bout of mental diarrhea. If the topic was “white on white violence” it would be appropriate to bring up.

          Now, do you have any issue with what Don Lemon said? Was he in the wrong for pointing out the things that he mentioned before? And why isn’t Toure talking about that instead?

    The fact black violience far out weights white violence even in absolute terms never mind as well as proportional terms relative to populations seems to escape Toure – White violience is small its insignificant The fact is whites are not that violent and blacks are. Own it , deal with it. And as for society failing them , most of the blame for blacks being the way they are is black peoples own fault.About time to stop blaming whitey Toure. Hard to accept your peeps on the whole need to pull up their pants actually and figaratively.

    • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      Let’s hear how the Xhosa treat the Zulus. It ain’t all “Black v. White” in South Africa. There’s also a sizable minority of Afrikaans-speaking people of mixed ancestry (shock horror!) called “Coloureds” descended from the Griquas, a population of Boers who weren’t all that fussy about race two hundred years ago. The modern name of Coloured came about as a recognition that even Puritanical Dutchmen, even in the 20th C., had difficulty with keeping it in their pants; thus, you can’t always be sure, when you hear a name like “Piet Botha,” that it will invariably be a white man. And this does not even address the South Asians, i.e., Indians (on behalf of whom Mohandas K. Gandhi fought, for treatment preferential to that of the indigenous blacks, for twenty years, prior to his returning to India– yet another story we don’t hear much about).

      • spaceycakes

        Mohandas K. Gandhi was also a ambulance porter in the second Boer War, for the British. At the Battle of Spion Kop, if I’m not mistaken, there was a young British soldier named Winston Churchill, so their paths may have crossed too.
