Touré Calls Out ‘White Leaders’ O’Reilly, Limbaugh and Don Lemon?

Toure 304MSNBC’s Touré likes to stir things up on Twitter. He did it again over the weekend calling out “white leaders” Bill O’Reilly, Rush Limbaugh and African-American CNN host Don Lemon.

His first tweet wondered why these white media leaders weren’t speaking up about white-on-white violence, lumping in Lemon with Limbaugh and O’Reilly.

“The Cycle” co-host continued on the topic for another 10 tweets and responses while clarifying:

Over the summer, Lemon got in on an Al Sharpton/Bill O’Reilly race back and forth, siding with O’Reilly, saying black youth  make the decision to reject education and cave in to street culture and gangs.

Lemon hasn’t, and most likely won’t, respond to the tweets.

Touré has used Twitter to go after CNN’s Piers Morgan, and, more recently Donald Trump.
