It’s time for some Real Talk from Touré about why America’s in this mess that we’re in:
Let’s be honest: we’ve had two horrible white male Presidents in a row and the three before that—Clinton, Poppy Bush, and Reagan—were problematic at best. We just need to stop having white male Presidents for a while.
— Touré (@Toure) December 18, 2018
It’s all so simple.
LOL Obama was horrible too brah. It’s okay to say that. It doesn’t make you a race traitor. https://t.co/AsD2vQEvH4

Well, for what it’s worth, Touré’s apparently including Obama on his list of horrible white male presidents. So that’s something … or something.
in a row?

"…in a row…"

Let's be honest. You don't know what "in a row" means.

People are dunking on this tweet due to its reductive racism & sexism — rightly so! — but let’s not lose sight of the fact that he is bizarrely reducing Barack Obama to a “white male” (Obama’s father was literally from Africa) & the fact that Reagan & Bush were good Presidents… https://t.co/VPdmdmQ85M

Maybe he’s just disgusted with Obama’s white half.
How is it useful to reduce these five people to simply "white men"?

To be fair, Touré’s not really known for being useful. Other than as a shining example of how not to be taken seriously or warrant any respect.

Our thoughts exactly.
Electing presidents based on race seems like a great idea 💡

What could possibly go wrong?
Yes, racism will probably solve our problems. https://t.co/Us1yPbL8hE

This is precisely the kind of toxic dehumanizing rhetoric that has come to typify the conversations we have in this country. It will backfire because racial essentialism always backfires and is used against those who perpetuate it. It is a bitterness that is not rooted in love. https://t.co/vYHbOAhHTj

Well done, Touré. Again.
