MSNBC host Touré earned himself a deserved Twitter drubbing this week when he attributed the success of a Holocaust survivor to “the power of whiteness.” It’s academic that someone from higher education would agree with Touré’s assessment, and Donald Earl Collins of the University of Maryland University College stepped up to fill the role, lauding Touré’s “great response.”

Again, we’re talking about the “white privilege” of Holocaust survivors — and “the power of whiteness” was a “great response.”

And a typical white person, as President Obama would say.
