During a heated debate on MSNBC’s show The Cycle Thursday night, discussion panelist Toure stated that Romney was using racial connotations in attempts to “niggarize” President Barack Obama’s campaign.
“You notice he said anger twice. He’s really trying to use racial coding and access some really deep stereotypes about the angry black man. This is part of the playbook against Obama, the ‘otherization,’ he’s not like us,” Toure told the group.
As we all know the word “angry” has been used many times over to describe the Black woman and Toure is stating that Romney is using this word as a racial slur to demonize Obama as an “angry” Black man who should be feared by all White people (or Republicans).
A back and forth battle then ensued between Toure and conservative co-host S.E. Cupp who couldn’t understand how Romney’s use of the word “angry” was racist, but Vice President Joe Biden’s use of the word “chains” wasn’t.
“You have two white guys in Joe Biden and Mitt Romney,” Cupp clarified. “Joe Biden made the overtly racial comment and has a history of making bigoted remarks. Mitt Romney was responding to the comment. Yet he is the one responsible for the whole Republican history of racism in politics?”
Toure continued to defend Biden’s choice of words and condemn Romney for his.
So do you agree with Toure’s notion that Romney’s use of the word “angry” is really a racial ploy against the Obama campaign?
