MSNBC Host Says "Power of Whiteness" is How People Survived the Holocaust

Posted: May 27, 2014 9:00 AM

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."

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.

If you're wondering what exactly white privilege is, please read Kurt Schlichter's recent column I Checked My Privilege, And It’s Doing Just Fine.

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."
