I understand that there has been extreme outrage over Toure's use of the N-word, rightfully so. It seems that the charge of racism is freely bandied, and frankly, it's lost its punch. I used to worry about being called a racist, because that label had meaning, but when Joe Biden makes a racially insensitive comment, Mitt Romney calls him on it, and the Republicans are accused of being racist, then the accusation has no weight.
I love this quote by the conservative co-host, Cupp.
“You have two white guys in Joe Biden and Mitt Romney,” Cupp clarified. “Joe Biden made the overtly racial comment and has a history of making bigoted remarks. Mitt Romney was responding to the comment. Yet he is the one responsible for the whole Republican history of racism in politics?”Good question. Toure' would do himself a service by re-evaluating his history, and deciding which party has done more for civil rights since 1860. I think that he'd decide that the Democratic Party is much more culpable than the Republicans.
