MSNBC personality Toure, currently a co-host of the cable network’s mid-day chat show “The Cycle,” declared on his blog Monday that it’s morally acceptable for slaves to kill their owners. Toure made the declaration on toure.com, in a review of Quentin Tarantino’s new slavery-themed action film “Django Unchained.” “For the descendants of slaves, who live in a world still tangibly doused in slavery’s residue, watching Django kill his oppressors could possibly feel cathartic. If murder can ever be morally justified by the presence of clear, undiluted,
Comments: Of course with morons like this guy it depends completely on your race. Those people at MessNBC have totally gone off the rails.
Toure will have to go back to Africa and Arab lands to kill slaves. They are the only known present-day slave owners. If he is related (at least by his name) to now-deceased Guinean President Ahmed Sekou Toure, his ancestors were known for going throughout the forest country animistic tribes, either killing the men, or selling them into slavery, and taking their wives. His name was Samoury, and the stories are endless about him in Guinea and neighboring Sierra Leone.
Comcast needs to fire this racist. I read this person as giving permission to blacks to murder whites, since he seems to think slavery is a kind of original sin for whites at all times and forever. Never mind that blacks were and continue to be the biggest slave owners and traders ever. Are there any adults at Comcast? Comcast owns this execrable channel. This Comcast racist is advocating murder!
Toure and many other loose mouthed fools talk big. You see, when polled most think that the population is about 50% black and 50% white. They don´t have a clue that blacks comprise 14% of the total population of the USA. Now Toure, please comment on those odds you dimwit.
This is what happens when you get rid of God, religion and a clear moral code that comes from both. Morals and ethics then become just a matter of opinion, open to interpretation according to your life experience. Instead of one God, we all become gods. Pretty intoxicating to the weak-minded.
We as a society always ask ourselves after a mass shooting what could have been done to prevent such an occurrence. I`m seriously beginning to believe the entire MSLSD staff of on air personalities are the type who would pull a gun an massacre a large group of people. These psycho`s are so extreme they warrant a closer look by the authorities. What type of an idiot would say such a stupid thing? Talk about giving the mentally ill an idea, not to mention their obsession with race.
Those who just cannot get enough of Toure´s special insights should take a look at his blog: http://toure.typepad.com/
One hesitates to say so -correct grammar is, after all, one of those code words Toure´ loves to talk about- but the first thing that jumps out is the same subject-verb disagreement that Obama repeatedly displays:
"I’m sure there’s things I’m missing."
Right. And one of them is subject-verb agreement. Our prez has the same problem.
What follows this mismatch is pretentious low-grade lit-crit cant in praise of a rap song about (or by) a run-of-the mill black urban criminal.
Toure´ may rationalize racial murder, but he definitely murders language and thought.
Shouldn´t they start by killing their African brethren who sold the people into slavery in the first place???
What a stupid idiot. The only place that I know of where there are living slaves and living slave-owners is in the Arab Middle-East and Africa. Does this fool realize that almost EVERY race of people has been enslaved at one time or another? Slavery is NOT a "black thang". Fool.
Consult with the Bible first there, pal. The Bible neither condemns, nor condones slavery, as it was a very common practice in the Middle East as a means of paying off one´s debts. Slaves did have the right to run away from an abusive master, and could find refuge in the home of another free-man, however, the Bible NEVER condones murder.
Another thing these modern day "plantation blacks" have haunting them is the large number of slaves who decided to remain in the employ of their former masters post-War. They were far happier and better taken care of than the ones who made it to the the New York City slums.
As if race relations haven´t worsened enough in the past 4 years already. I considered taking my elderly mom to see Les Miz at a movie theater, but I think we´ll wait for Redbox. I don´t want to be anywhere nearby when a group gets out of this movie all fired up about killing whitey.
With a death of Nelson Mandela, some people are wondering about a possible encounter between the American and Iranian president at memorial events in South Africa this week – especially after a failed attempt by U.S. officials to arrange one at the U.N. last fall. As of Sunday, Iran had not yet formally confirmed whether President Hasan Rouhani plans to travel to South Africa, but that did not stop one Iranian newspaper from warning that the funeral events could be a “trap” that would bring him face to face with the leader of the “great satan.” “Satan lays a trap,
The New York-based Satanic Temple is now demanding its own statue beside one displaying the Ten Commandments currently on the steps of the Statehouse in Oklahoma City. Satanic Temple spokesman Lucien Greaves said the group will submit several designs this month, and according to USA Today, he has begun spelling out guidelines: "We believe that all monuments should be in good taste and consistent with community standards," Greaves wrote in letter to state officials. "Our proposed monument, as an homage to the historic/literary Satan, will certainly abide by these guidelines." Greaves said one potential design involves a pentagram, a satanic
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell believes the United States should have a socialized, single-payer healthcare system similar to those in Canada and Europe. “I think universal health care is one of the things we should really be focused on, and I hope that will happen,” Powell reportedly said last week. “Whether it’s Obamacare, or son of Obamacare, I don’t care. As long as we get it done.” The Puget Sound Business Journal reported Powell´s remarks at the Prostate Cancer Survivors Celebration Breakfast at the University of Washington´s Cancer Research Center. Powell, the Republican who supported Barack Obama during the last two presidential
PJ Media columnist J. Christian Adams appeared on The Kelly File on Fox News on Friday to talk about his recent article detailing how the Department of Homeland Security has recently hired activist immigration attorneys who worked for pro-amnesty, pro-asylum, and open borders groups in the past. Now, sources inside DHS have provided PJ Media with the employment history and pro-amnesty backgrounds of the newly hired lawyers who will be enforcing federal immigration laws. The ideological histories of these new DHS lawyers undermine confidence that the federal government will vigorously enforce federal laws, notwithstanding any congressional “mandates” to do so.
WASHINGTON -- A longtime adviser to the U.S. Director of National Intelligence has resigned after the government learned he has worked since 2010 as a paid consultant for Huawei Technologies Ltd., the Chinese technology company the U.S. has condemned as an espionage threat, The Associated Press has learned. Theodore H. Moran, a respected expert on China´s international investment and professor at Georgetown University, had served since 2007 as adviser to the intelligence director´s advisory panel on foreign investment in the United States. Moran also was an adviser to the National Intelligence Council,
DEVELOPING: – An elderly U.S. tourist and war veteran detained for more than a month for alleged hostile acts against North Korea has been deported from that country. North Korean state media said Saturday 85-year-old Merrill Newman was released because he had apologized for his alleged crimes during the Korean War and because of his age and medical condition. It was not clear if his confession was coerced. He was taken off a plane Oct. 26 by North Korean authorities while preparing to leave the country after a 10-day tour. Vice President Joe Biden is currently in South Korea on
At the "Fast Food Forward" protest on Thursday, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) demanded that Pres. Obama sign an executive order bypassing Congress and unilaterally raising the federal minimum wage. Rep. Ellison told the crowd that they should join him in demanding that Pres. Obama skip seeking Congressional approval and raise the minimum wage on his own - and that he sent the president a letter on Wednesday presenting his demand: "We in Congress will try to raise the minimum wage. We got opponents on the other side of the aisle who say that there shouldn´t be no minimum wage. So, we
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
