The "right kind" of black guy

Conservative pundit Ann Coulter has taken heat for her comments about Herman Cain's situation ("Our blacks are better than their blacks"). This isn't surprising, of course. Any inkling of racial "insensitivity" on the part of conservatives/the GOP is immediately pounced on with the predictable race card. Now, Coulter is far from my favorite person, and I think her comments were intemperate; however, let's take a gander (again) at the moronic no-last name Touré who was recently at it again over at MSNBC:

TOURE, TIME CONTRIBUTOR: But this is a major moment for the GOP because Cain is a really important candidate - perhaps more important than any of the other candidates - because he serves a massive psychological purpose because there's a lot of people in the GOP who have been critical of Obama and have been made to feel that they are racist because of their criticism. Some of it has been racist, some of it's been reasonable, some of it's been business-as-usual Republican-Democrat stuff, okay.

Cain comes along offering salvation, liberation: You're not racist if you support Herman Cain. So now they have this Herman Cain card that they can throw at us anytime they are made to feel racist, so this is like a beautiful thing for them. So they need him to succeed as long as they can deal with him so that they can get their Cain card and make it as valuable as possible. But, of course, this whole transaction is a canard.

LAWRENCE O'DONNELL: In what way?

TOURE: Well, I mean, Cain is giving comfort to racism the way that he purports himself, as we've discussed before on this show, so, I mean, this is not the person that you can hold up as, well, see, I'm not a racist, I love Herman Cain.

Like Coulter, Cain himself took a lot of heat for saying that too many blacks are "brainwashed" for their lock-step loyalty to the Democrat Party. Yet this buffoon Touré holds himself up as a spokesman for not only all blacks, but all American voters by lecturing us that Cain is not "the right kind" of black to hold in high regard. And why? Because he dares to venture away from that which he referenced in his "brainwashing" comment. He dares to think differently and hold a different political point of view. And for racers like Touré, this is totally and completely anathema -- and is much like "progressive" dogma in general. That is, if you dare go astray, you must be destroyed. Period.

So, Touré is different from Coulter and Cain ... how?
