Toure, who has been known to make his fair share of controversial comments, said on his show “The Cycle” today that Romney is trying to paint Obama as the “angry black man.”

“That really bothered me,” Touré told the show’s panel. “You notice he said anger twice. He’s really trying to use racial coding and access some really deep stereotypes about the angry black man. This is part of the playbook against Obama, the ‘otherization’ – he’s not like us.”

“I know it’s a heavy thing, I don’t say it lightly, but this is ‘n—-rization,’” he continued.

    well he is right and it should not be controversial if its true. someone needs to put it out there thank goodness he has the guts to say it.

      He said out loud what a lot of us was thinking and he shouldn’t be under fire for saying it. After hearing so many say “we need to take our country back” as if it’s being held hostage. This news is refreshing because it’s the truth.
