MSNBC co-host of  “The Cycle” Toure is apologizing for his racialized comments about Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

On Thursday, Toure said that Romney was trying to paint Obama as an “angry black man” and was “niggeri**ng” him.

He released the below statement:

“On yesterday’s show in discussion about the presidential race, I used a word to make a point. In retrospect, I muddied the discussion by using the ‘N-word,'” he said at the end of the opening segment. “I could’ve made my point without that word. I shouldn’t have used it, and for that I’m sorry.”

    These types of apologies are typical from liberals are laughable, they apologize to anyone who was offended or they chose their words badly or they misspoke, which should be the same thing as admitting they lied. But always the damage is done and really lingers. It is only when these jerks are suspended or fired that true justice is served. Just because you are black does excuse you from using racially explosive terms.

    He should b fired. This was the ultimate in race baiting. This is the reason the race can’t get along is because of type of thinking.

    How does Romney keep his cool demeaner in the face of the ugly opposition as showcased here. The shills on MSNBC are the worst but they always get a free pass from their bosses, their party and the ignorant voters who actually believe the vile poison they spew.

    Seriously, who give a sh*t what Toure has to say….he is yet another angry, suspicious, arrogant, false fault finding idiot. MSNBC is to blame for this when they present panels like The Cycle!!!!!!!!!! Useless and non-informative.
