The comedian Toure on MSNBC’s “The Cycle” just had a rough week. I refer to him as a comedian because he’s not exactly the most serious political commentator on television. He’s more likely to be the guy seeking out the best sound bite and his career as a commentator on music and entertainment is hardly a fit for a show that should be hosted by someone like Howard University Political Science professor Dr. Wilmer Leon.
This week, Toure said that the Republicans were seeking out the “niggerization” of President Barack Obama by labeling him to be a liberal extremist. Shortly after making his remarks, phone calls were made to NBC, and someone likely had one of “those” conversations with Toure behind closed doors.
