MSNBC’s Touré tells Holocaust survivors: check your white privilege

Touré, goes by just one name. One of those types.

MSNBC’s Touré believes that having as many as 7 million of your ancestors gassed, burned, and tortured to death simply for the crime of being Jewish is nothing compared to slavery and Jim Crow, because Jews, in the end, had “white privilege,” and therefore, could prosper economically.

On Twitter, Touré said the following in response to a Jew exclaiming, in as many words, that if their family could still prosper after the holocaust, then American blacks should be able to do the same after slavery and Jim Crow:

The power of whiteness: RT @hope_and_chains: My family survived a concentration camp, came to the US w/ nothing, LEGALLY, and made it work.

I still can’t believe Touré basically told someone to check their Nazi concentration camp survivor privilege.
