Touré: ‘We Really Do Have a Black President’ Now

After President Obama’s remarks about the George Zimmerman case this afternoon, MSNBC’s Touré declared that he’s confident, now, “we really do have a black president.” 

“I’ve been thinking lately, ‘Do we actually have a black president, or a president who happens to be black?’” Touré said in his analysis immediately following the speech, alluding to his frustration with what Obama’s done for African Americans. “But this moment was like, ‘Wow, we really do have a black president,’” he explained.

In a later segment, the MSNBC host said the president’s remarks have given him “a spring in my step,” after he’d been “depressed” by the verdict.
