Touré: How to Christmas Shop While Being Black

Bradford Thomas, Truth Revolt, December 24, 2013

MSNBC’s Touré dedicated the final segment of The Cycle Monday to his default racially-charged social commentary–this time in the form of how-to Christmas shopping advice for African-Americans.

Touré advised his African-American viewers that in order to avoid the “shop-and-frisk,” they should do their best to make themselves appear “non-threatening” by dressing well, waving to security cameras, speaking articulately, shaking security guards’ hands, and, if possible, bringing a white friend (though not an attractive white girl if you’re a black male).

Of course . . . I’m being sarcastic. The problem is not us. It’s the diseased idea that black criminality is endemic and universal, while white criminality is deviant and rare.
