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.”
