MSDNC’s @Toure takes heat for “power of whiteness” remarks about Holocaust survivors


MSDNC’s Touré.

Toure is no stranger to controversy – especially on issues like abortion and race, but this time he stooped to even lower lows (hat tip):

Late last week, MSNBC host Touré responded to a Twitter user who compared his family’s survival of the Holocaust to African-American’s survival of slavery with this message:

The Simon Wiesenthal Center addressed Touré’s ignorance and bigotry today:

“It’s obviously absurd and smacks of intense and disgusting anti-Semitism. It’s reverse-racism basically,” Efraim Zuroff, Israel office director of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, said in a statement to TheBlaze. “There is no question that part of the anti-Semitism that we see has its roots in the form of jealousy. This is a perfect example: ‘Jews made it because they’re white and Jews.’”

To the Tourés of the world, everything revolves around race – including whether or not you were ‘powerful’ enough as a ‘white person’ to survive, escape, and prosper during and after the Holocaust.

He hasn’t yet addressed the massive backlash surrounding what he said. His “The Cycle” show airs at 3 pm ET weekdays on MSNBC, so perhaps he’ll have a response at the next airing. Stay tuned.

  1. I’m not easily offended, but that has to be one of the most offensive things I’ve read in years. I wonder how the survivors of Buchenwald would react to being told they benefited from “White privilege?”

    What a stupid, moronic jackass he is.

  2. What is it with this crowd at BSDNC? If they want to be old-fashioned racists the least they could do is formulate a consistent approach. Melissa Harris-Perry referring to Romney’s adopted grandchild as being a “thing” different from the others in the family portrait was bad enough. But now they want to declare open season on the Jews who knew a level of persecution for which loud-mouthed bigots like Toure should be on their knees and saying a prayer of thanks that they never experienced such.

    It gives the appearance they were born with a silver foot in their mouths.

  3. Toure – Take your apology and shove it up yours buddy. Your left wing communist crap is not wanted any more. GO TO HELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    For you lefty nutbags…my father in law lost most all of his family to your idea of white privilege…the holocaust…SO JUST PISS OFFF ALL OF YOU COMMUNIST OBAMALOVERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
