MSNBC's Idiot Race-Baiter Toure Turns Out To Have Started an Idiot Race-Baiting Newspaper in College

Fairly radical stuff. I suppose a lot of black college students adopt a militant, radical posture, but then, I'm not sure if I want that sort of person lecturing me about politics.

I wonder if kids have to get permission signed from their parents if Toure speaks at their school.

Here are a few tidbits.

MSNBC host Touré founded a student newspaper dedicated to black liberation theology while he was a college student attending Emory University from 1989 to 1992.

Touré’s flagship publication, The Fire This Time, lavished praise on famous anti-Semites, black supremacists, and conspiracy theorists whom Touré helped bring to campus. Before he became an intense-but-sardonic TV personality, Touré also decried “the suffocating white community” and defended a nationally famous fake hate crime.

Toure continues pushing conspiracy theories; he's a 9/11 Truther.

Here's that hate-crime part:

Touré devoted his most intense passion for a fake episode, “the most celebrated of all the race-charged events Emory has seen.” Sabrina Collins, a black freshman at Emory, reported in March 1992 that a dormitory had been vandalized and racist words written on her walls. The news made national attention. Touré and others protested for television cameras. Collins said the event had traumatized her.

Six months later Collins admitted the entire dorm vandalism story was a hoax.

But Touré continued to defend Collins’ allegations after she retracted them. “In the aftermath,” Touré wrote in The Fire This Time, “THE POSSIBILITY THAT COLLINS HERSELF PERPETRATED THE CRIME HAS SEEMED TO MINIMIZE THE INCIDENT’S IMPORTANCE. IN ANALYZING THE EVENT’S IMPORTANCE TO EMORY, IT IS NOT AT ALL IMPORTANT IF COLLINS DID IT.” (Emphasis added by Touré.)

ALL CAPS ARE A SIGN OF MENTAL WELLNESS.

Radicals and idiots said that after the Tawana Brawley and Duke Lacrosse hoaxes, too -- that it doesn't matter if it really happened or not, it still illustrates something profound and we should still treat it as real.

Touré went on to insist the incident be used to leverage a list of demands against the university, “including instituting an African American studies class as a distribution requirement.” Touré continued to blame Emory for not doing enough to raise the “consciousness“ of white students. “White students largely scoffed at the demands [from Touré’s group], even with TV cameras in their faces and the university added none of the demands to Emory life.”

The article concludes by suggesting the possibility that Toure might feel as if he has something to prove -- growing up, as he did, in a privileged mostly-white environment and attending a tony boarding school.
