Nothing is ever to blame for anything that happens to a Black person, except RAAAACISM!
MSNBC host Touré tore into President Barack Obama over his announcement on Thursday of a program to address disproportional rates of poverty and crime among African-American youth. The MSNBC host insisted that Obama was misguided to focus on the family and “personal responsibility” as ways to address those issues. He insisted “structural racism” was to blame for crime and poverty in the African-American community.
Touré began by praising the president for speaking to black youths in a way “only a black president could.” However, he said he was “depressed” by Obama’s outreach because even he would be unable to address many of the problems facing the black community.
“But when the president speaks to the black community, there’s often a dive into the politics of personal responsibility,” he continued. “I cringe at that, as if effort and excuses have been the problem.”
“No,” Touré asserted. “It’s been structural racism.”
Yeah, sure Toure, we need to drop any personal responsibility and embrace Social justice right? I will say that people like Toure are a blight upon Black Americans. His message of total blame shifting and government dependence is racist, and poisonous.
