From RCP:

MSNBC's resident expert on race and "pop culture critic" Toure (one word) joined the network for the first time in a while to give his opinion on Whitney Houston's death.

Toure, who is known for attaching race to nearly every issue didn't disappoint during his appearance on MSNBC's "The Last Word" with host Lawrence O'Donnell. Sitting next to Al Sharpton, Toure told viewers that untimely deaths such as Michael Jackson's or Whitney Houston's can be attributed to "a fear of going back to poverty."

This kid (I refuse to use his "name") is an absolute 'bag. First off, as you may know, I'm no fan of the three names instead of the classical two, but one takes the cake of pomposity.

When dealing with a go-for-broke (no pun intended) liberal you must understand that the lens they see the world through is Marxian; their trinity is race, gender and class. All problems and all the subsequent answers lie in seeing, interpreting, and fixing the world through this lens. Toure is no exception.
