A Black President ‘Can Divide Racially in This Country’ and Get ‘Free Pass From the Media’

JON SCOTT, HOST: And then there’s this guy Toure, he likes to go by one name, Toure Neblett on MSNBC. He’s the expert on race there apparently, and co-host of The Cycle.

An African-American cannot be a racist because they’re always cast by the media and liberal politicians as victims. So they can say whatever they want.
