White Privilege Wins Again – Touré Forced to Apologize For Holocaust Tweets

Either the Jews or the white privilege patriarchy got to MSNBC host Touré, because he had to take back his absolutely execrable comments about “white privilege” giving an advantage to survivors of the Holocaust. Here’s the original tweet:

And here’s the apology:

But, if you parse it closely, you’ll see he’s just apologizing for the Twitter exchange – ostensibly, he still holds that view, he just thinks it was foolish to talk about it on the limited social media platform. Well, we’d love to hear what you really think, Touré.

Nothing yet from Media Matters’ Oliver Willis, or fellow MSNBC host Ronan Farrow about their own Holocaust tweets.

UPDATE: Also this.
