During a discussion on the Melissa Harris-Perry show of the much-rumored outbreak of violence following George Zimmerman’s possible acquittal Saturday morning, Touré argued that the predictions of race riots by Bill O’Reilly and others was another iteration of the same racial profiling that motivated Zimmerman to approach Trayvon Martin.

“There’s this expectation of violence from us,” Touré said, “which goes back to slavery, that we must keep them under control in any way possible. They are three-fifths of a human, they are animals, they might explode in violence at any moment…Violence in terms of riots have been used against the black community far more often throughout history than we have used it. So this idea that we’re just going to explode if we don’t get this verdict—that many of us don’t expect to go our way—is absurd and ahistorical and insulting.”

“This is racism,” Touré continued. “This expectation of violence. And this is what George Zimmerman applied to Trayvon Martin in the dark. Well, he surely will be violent! He is planning violence! He’s a burglar, he’s going to get us! I must stop him! And here, [Bill] O’Reilly and these other lunatics come in to say, all of you are the same.” Read more via Mediaite...
