Toure

After being challenged on-air by his conservative co-host S.E. Cupp, and with rumors swirling that top Romney officials have put in a couple of calls to NBC, Touré, host of NBC News’ “The Cycle,” has quickly retracted his accusation that Mitt ‘Mittens’ Romney was plotting the “niggerization” of President Barack Obama, reports Politico.com.

At a campaign stop in Chillicothe, Ohio, Romney had these two comments for Obama:

“This is what an angry and desperate presidency looks like.” And: “Mr. President, take your campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago.”

Enter, Touré, with the N-blast heard ’round the internet:

“I mean, that really bothered me. You notice he says 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. I know it’s a heavy thing to say, I don’t say it lightly, but this is Niggerization. You are not one of use. You are like the scary black man we’ve been trained to fear.”

Unfortunately for those people who applauded him for calling it like he felt it, he has quickly changed his tune.

Politico reports:

“On yesterday’s show in discussion about the presidential race, I used a word to make a point. In retrospect, I muddied the discussion by using the ‘N-word,'” Toure said at the end of the opening segment. “I could’ve made my point without that word. I shouldn’t have used it, and for that I’m sorry.”

On the program yesterday, Touré, an African-American, charged Mitt Romney with “trying to use racial coding and access some really deep stereotypes about the angry black man.”

“I know it’s a heavy thing, I don’t say it lightly, but this is ‘niggerization,'” he said.

The remark was picked up by right-wing blogs and put on the top of Drudge Report. Various news outlets from the New York Daily News to the Washington Times today charged that Touré was accusing Romney of racism or “race-baiting.”
