    That would be Touré! Neblett, who is being Touré! once again.

    I can no longer ignore this.

    Too many readers are posting it on the Tip Line, emailing it to me, tweeting it at me.

    Here are a couple of the key tweets:

    I actually read Ta-Nehisi Coates piece and I want to point out something: he’s not explicitly calling for reparations but writing on support of a congressional commission to study not only slavery, but segregation, redlining and a number of discriminatory practices that affected
    African Americans. It is actually well written and lacking any of the usual talking points leftist use; given that much of the damage inflicted on blacks was at the hands of democratic politicians and the big-government institutions that they support, I’m really wondering if they are honestly willing to study this seriously and assign the blame where it really belongs.

      “…I’m really wondering if they are honestly willing to study this seriously and assign the blame where it really belongs.”

      Surely you jest…!!!

      Not only NO, but HELL NO.

      All my little gray cells (all of us have the same colored brain) tell me that Coates is trying to be cute with his piece, and that…sure as there are carts to horses…any such commission would be the precursor to a call for reparations.

      You can see that plainly from his supporter’s emphasis, I think.

      I do not take issue with Coates historical narrative. What he writes about is documented and accurate (and morally wrong).

      Surely you know that such a congressional commission is only a prelude to calls for government action. Any claim that it is merely fact-finding is laughably false. And besides, who needs another “investigation”? The facts are there. Any “fact-finding” is merely an attempt to soften up opposition to future “redistribution” of wealth.

      For another example of this sort of BS, did you notice the USDA’s “food desert” maps? Not only are the maps grossly dishonest, they are obviously a first step in a new ploy to increase the size and power of government agencies.

    I wrote this a couple years ago:

    Touré Neblett was raised in the predominately white community of Randolph, Massachusetts. He attended the prestigious Milton Academy, a mostly-white private prep school. After graduating from Milton, Touré went to college:

    When he went to Emory University in Atlanta, Touré made fast friends with the white students in his dorm. Then he read “The Autobiography of Malcolm X,” switched his major to African American studies, started a black nationalist student newspaper, brought the incendiary rapper Chuck D to campus and, eventually, moved into the Black Student Association’s private house.

    Touré Neblett dropped out of Emory University in 1992 to become an intern at Rolling Stone. Since then he has written books and short stories you never read, articles you never heard of, hosted cable shows you never watched, and now seems to be trying to establish himself as the Senior Black Correspondent at MSNBC.
