Touré: Hey, sorry for using Holocaust survivors as an example of the “power of whiteness”

posted at 5:21 pm on May 27, 2014 by Allahpundit

We didn’t blog his original tweet because it was a holiday weekend and who needs the aggravation, but you probably saw it on some other site. If not, for the record:

Having thus proposed an exciting new strain of “white privilege” that I’m calling “Holocaust survivor privilege,” he went silent for the next three days as Twitter unloaded on him. Then, about an hour ago, he surfaced to say he’s sorry — especially for thinking that the nuances of his point would be grasped in this particular medium.

Like Ben Howe, I’d be keen to see him explore Holocaust survivor privilege at length in a format equal to the task, where he can get into detail on the comparatively lesser hardships of navigating post-war America as a Jewish man or woman who’d been interned at Auschwitz. Recommended title: “Silver Medal in the Victim Olympics.” Or better yet, deliver it as a monologue during “The Cycle.” MSNBC hosts are getting into “edgier” material lately vis-a-vis Jews and the Holocaust. This’ll fit right in.

-Allahpundit

Yes, lately, I’ve been noticing that other sites have been covering all sorts of things that HotAir fails to report on. In particular, the quality of HotAir’s coverage over the weekends leaves a lot to be desired. There is a huge drop-off in quality from the weekday bloggers to the weekend editor, IMO.

Breitbart, The Blaze and now Twitchy have been leaving HotAir in the dust in many areas. However, I do appreciate Allahpundit’s recent increase in coverage of the illegal alien amnesty issue.

Anyway, Toure is a skin color-obsessed fool who sees everything through racial lens. HotAir should regularly be calling out, mocking and condemning this kind of disgusting and harmful propaganda.

Bmore on May 27, 2014 at 5:33 PM

I believe the point he was trying to make was that by virtue of being ‘white’, holocaust survivors could come to the U.S. with nothing and still make it. The implication being that other non-white groups couldn’t and that Jewish people could ONLY because they were white.

It shows an incredible lack of historical knowledge that he believes Jewish people (especially post-war refugees) faced no barriers to achievement in the U.S. Far from being considered ‘white’ they were singled out and excluded from many institutions (and grudgingly quota-ed to others).

If he truly wants to find ways for other minority groups to achieve great things in America, he would be wise not to assume that the examples of success he can look into were only successful because they were white.

JadeNYU on May 27, 2014 at 5:33 PM

I wouldn’t discount the possibility that when he saw the term “concentration camp”, he thought it was referring to the sort of summer camps affluent people send their kids to. Touré is an unusually stupid man, even for an MSNBC talking head. Unusually stupid.

JadeNYU on May 27, 2014 at 5:33 PM

Indeed. My dad was one of only two Jewish students admitted to the U. of Georgia in 1938. His father came over from Poland in 1900 and landed in Savannah with nothing but the clothes he was wearing. Eventually he opened a small shop selling groceries, mostly to blacks. For this he was doubly reviled, as a Jew and a “n— lover” by the locals. My Dad had swastikas painted on his dorm room door at UGA. He was given oral exams while all the other students got written tests. The only job he could get on campus was as a dishwasher in the house of a fraternity he could never join because it prohibited Jews.

And Toure thinks I owe HIM reparations! Give me a break!

It is a decent point, though. There have been several stories that have taken a strangely long time to bubble up on HotAir. Most notably the complete absence of reporting on the Bundy ranch story until the Feds had already departed.

It’s of course completely up to the editors here to choose what stories to cover and when. But coming back after the fact and saying “it was a holiday and we sort of didn’t feel like getting to this earlier,” while amusingly honest, is a lameish excuse, you have to admit.

bofh on May 27, 2014 at 6:04 PM

Plain and simple, Foure is a Tucker through and through. The a$$wipe has not a cogent idea concerning “racism”, yet racism is all that spews out of his mouth. If he can’t appreciate that racism against the Jews in Germany was about a billion times worse than the racism that his same skin color brothers had to endure in this country (he is not a poor black kid, he is a preppy with a hangup), he has no concept of history.

That the surviving Jews from the Holocaust came to America and made a place for themselves and their progeny (of which I am one) should make Foure the Tucker embarrassed that his brethren have sunken to the level he says they have. I’m almost tempted to ask for Hate Speech to be a crime so twits like Foure the Tucker would be thrown in jail for eternity. We’d all be better off.

It’s actually French, so his family either originates from Louisiana, or he’s an import from Haiti or Quebec, possibly a francophone African country but I doubt it. I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s no history of slavery in his family past, yet he advocated for reparations. Either way he’s not worth even a wiki lookup, the piece of scum that he is.

It’s actually French, so his family either originates from Louisiana, or he’s an import from Haiti or Quebec, possibly a francophone African country but I doubt it. I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s no history of slavery in his family past, yet he advocated for reparations. Either way he’s not worth even a wiki lookup, the piece of scum that he is.
