In case you missed it over the long holiday weekend, in an attempt to prove "white privilege" is a thing, notorious race-baiter, former boarding school student, privileged first-class flyer and MSNBC host Toure said surviving the holocaust is a result of "the power of whiteness."
The power of whiteness: RT @hope_and_chains: My family survived a concentration camp, came to the US w/ nothing, LEGALLY, and made it work.— Touré (@Toure) May 23, 2014
Thanks to the power of social media, Toure was pummeled for his remark and hasn't tweeted anything for a two days. Twitchy has a full rundown of responses.
You have white privilege if you survived Auschwitz https://t.co/NDC9QYBMOR— S.M (@redsteeze) May 24, 2014
Toure's comments aren't isolated at the network. MSNBC host Al Sharpton has a long history of using racial slurs to describe Jews and has referred to them as "white interlopers" and "diamond merchants."
