TourÃ© defends ‘white ally’ Colbert against racism accusations [video]
Why so many less than normal? RT @Matthops82: Toure just used the word "racist" 14 times in his monologue

MSNBC’s Touré used the word “racist” and “racism” quite a bit in a monologue today, but this time he was defending a person against the allegation instead of throwing it at somebody.
Touré, who can find a racist around any corner for almost any reason as long as that person subscribes to the “wrong” kind of politics, continued his defense of Stephen Colbert and “white allies” like him:
Today on The Cycle I'm talking about the similarities between Archie Bunker & Stephen Colbert & the stupidity of assaulting white allies.

Colbert’s critics just don’t understand satire, you guys!
Besides Colbert, the other person Touré cited as an “acceptable” racial satirist was Sarah Silverman, who also just happens to be a liberal.
Here’s a condensed version of Touré’s view on this issue:
@Toure <- shorter: As long as you're a white liberal you can say as much racist shit as you want. Enshrining the double standard.

Late last month Touré said it’s dumb to be offended by satire, while forgetting about the time he was offended by satire.
Editor’s note: The spelling of Sarah Silverman’s name has been corrected.
